GM Increases MSRP On Most 2021 Chevrolet Models19
General Motors has increased the Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) on most 2021 Chevrolet models, including for popular products like the Silverado 1500 pickup and Tahoe/Suburban SUVs.
Some of the most significant price increases have been applied to the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban. The base LS trim-level for both SUVs is now $1,000 more expensive, while the LT trim is $900 more and the RST and Z71 trims are $700 more. The Premier trim level for both SUVs has also gone up in price by $600, while the range-topping High Country has increased by $500.
|Blazer 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, RS||$300|
|Colorado WT, LT||$0|
|Colorado Z71, ZR2||$1,000|

|Tahoe Z71, RST||$700|

The Silverado 1500, meanwhile, has gone up in price by $250 to $400 for most trim levels and engine combinations, although the Custom trim level is now $2,300 more expensive than it was previously, which is the most significant price increase applied to any model. Certain Silverado 1500 variants with the 5.3L L82 V8 have also received a slightly lesser price increase (by $50), as these trucks are being shipped without AFM/DFM due to the semiconductor chip shortage. Price increases for the 2021 Silverado HD range from $200 to $700 depending on the trim level and powertrain chosen.

The Equinox, which is Chevy’s most popular crossover model, is now $100 more expensive than it was previously, although the entry-level L trim level did not receive a price increase. The Blazer is $300 more expensive for all trim levels except the Premier, which has gone up by $200. The Trailblazer and Trax have gone up by $200 across the board, while all Traverse trim levels except the base L have gone up by $300. The Spark hatchback is now $200 more expensive across the board, as is the Malibu sedan. The Camaro sports coupe has also gone up by $200 for all trim level/powertrain combinations.
The Chevy Express van is also now more expensive than it was previously. The WT trim level has gone up in price by $500, while the LS and LT models have gone up by $800. The Z71 and off-road-focused ZR2 trim levels for the Chevy Colorado mid-size pickup have gone up in price, as well, gaining $1,000.
A couple of models did not receive a price increase. The 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV has the same MSRP, as GM is preparing to launch the updated 2022 model year Bolt EV this summer. The 2021 Corvette received a $1,000 price increase earlier in the year, as well, so it sticks with its $60,995 price tag.

Might as well raise the prices, used cars are selling at incredibly high prices, I can sell my 2020 GMC Denali 2500HD with 15K miles on it for more than I paid for it new. I got $6K off when it was new, no deals like that now.
Holy smokes what did they do to the Silverado Custom to jack the price up a whopping 2300 dollars? That has got to be one of the largest increases I have seen in a long while in just one model year vehicle!
the 2300 increase also includes moving up from the 4.3 6 speed to the 2.7 8 speed
Inflation is a real thing now.
Vehicles are one part of it. Food prices are going up. The lumber market is insane now.
Spot on with the inflation. I’m already looking for a new job. The market is hot and I’m looking for a pay raise to counter inflation. In a couple years, all those people “demanding” 15$/hr minimum wage will realize 15 is the new 7.50…. as the average worker starts looking for 20-25-30$/hr.
What inflation President Jimmy Carter says everything is cool.
$15 has been the new $7.50 for a few years already. Adjusted for inflation the minimum wage should be somewhere between $23 and $24 right now. We’ve been living with relatively low inflation for a long time, all of the deficit spending is starting to have a real impact.
Expect new highs for the poverty levels in the not to distant future. Good thing we had those massive tax cuts a few years back because trickle down is such a resounding success.
Inflation now is due to the Fed creating money by purchasing t-bills letting Congress spend 4 trillion this year with 2 trillion in tax revenue. This Modern Monetary Theory MMT will debase the dollar and inflate prices, fiat money has to go somewhere.
You gotta pay more for that cheap, crappy interior, it’s here to stay for another 3 years!
Aww, it is great isn’t it kid? A few more years of those who use trucks for work actually getting something that will stand up and be functional. Plus, those suburban yuppies finally aren’t winning one as they have wrongly been driving the market lately. Big black wheels, fancy luxury car interiors, more tech than you can shake a stick at, people who have no business being in or using a truck should not dictate how a truck is designed when it is a tool and price out those who actually depend on them daily.
Buy something else.
Real happy with my day after Christmas purchase of a Silverado 1500 LT Trailboss Crewcab for 4K under GM employee price.
6.2L 4×4 Northsky Blue for 48K before taxes.. MSRP was 57K+
carvana will give you 52k+
Interim model year price increases reminds me of the wonderful days of Jimmy Carter.
I remember in 1972, Nixon put price controls in place. Dealers couldn’t charge more for a 1972 model than they could for a 1971 model. Their workaround was to give you more trade-in dollars if you bought a 1971. My parents went for the 1972 Chevy anyway.
$1000 bucks on a Tahoe is less than 2%, most of the others are much less on a percentage basis, most are less than 1%. With the current supply and demand, I’m surprised there isn’t a much larger increase.
Ah, American economic ingenuity. Produce crappy Tahoes/Suburbans with a litany of recalls, then raise prices. Thank you God for giving us LEXUS!
Like the overpriced Toyota never had recalls.. GTFO
We haven’t seen nothing yet. Everything around us is soaring from gas, to groceries to building materials and roofing to taxes. Welcome to Carter two point O. It’s going to be a real fun wallet draining experience the next 4 years!
