2021 Chevy Suburban Street Concept: Live Photo Gallery8
Today, GM Authority is bringing you real-world photos of the 2021 Chevy Suburban Street Concept coming direct from the floor of the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The photos provide a closer look at the aesthetic upgrades added to the full-size 2021 Chevy Suburban SUV for this concept show vehicle, with the 2021 model year introducing a brand-new twelfth generation for the Suburban nameplate.
Under the upgrades, the 2021 Chevy Suburban Street Concept is based on the High Country trim level, the range-topper in the 2021 Chevy Suburban lineup. The exterior is covered in Black paint, complemented by a Jet Black interior treatment.
Under the hood, the 2021 Chevy Suburban Street Concept cradles the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The V8 connects to a 10-speed automatic transmission, while Magnetic Ride Control suspension with Four-Corner Air Ride Adaptive components keep it shiny side up.
As for the styling features, the 2021 Chevy Suburban Street Concept is equipped with a number of accessories that enhance curb appeal, starting up front where we find a new Black grille bisected by the Chevrolet script. The grille looks good with the Black paint, while a Matte black hood decal adds another dash of customization to the equation.
Moving over to the sides, we see a set of 24-inch custom-cut, polished billet aluminum wheels, wrapped in 33-inch 285/30 tires. With a two-tone polished and black finish, plus black Bowtie badge center caps, the 24-inchers really set off the 2021 Chevy Suburban Street Concept’s styling, and coincide with the prediction made by GM design chief Michael Simcoe that the industry trend in wheel sizing was towards bigger and bigger diameters.
Under the wheels we spot a set of upgraded Brembo brakes with six-piston front calipers. The calipers front and back are finished in red, giving it a splash of color, while the Black mirror caps and Black badging complement the dark aesthetic. Rearview mirror Puddle lamp with the Bowtie logo finish the flanks.
Finally, the rear end styling puts a bow (tie) on it with quad polished exhaust tips, while the standard inner taillight graphics enhance the SUV’s visual height.
The grille and matte black hood decal will be offered as accessories for the 2022 model year, while the rest of the upgraded features are available now, including the Brembo brakes, black mirror caps, black badging, and puddle lamps.
As a reminder, the 12th-generation Suburban, which debuted for the 2021 model year, is build on the GM T1 platform, and, in addition to offering the 6.2L V8 L87, also offers the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine and 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine. Production takes place at GM Arlington plant in Texas.

I dig it
Super. The gangbangers will go into orgasmic fits over this. A+
The trailer trash and hillbillies will go postal and then later bang their sister…
My Suburban is already a street concept!
Isn’t every suburban now a “street concept”? This thing is a bloated minivan. Lower ground clearance, LSD instead of a locker, and a gas guzzler to boot.
Alex: Limited slip differential on Suburban works superb. Eaton’s Detroit Locker differential also works superb. To me both are equal. In fact I think Eaton makes GM’s LSD’s.
Also consider a 3.0 diesel engine option for Suburbans, Tahoes, Escalades, Denalis, etc. I get 27 to 30 mpg highway at 65 to 75 mph. Stellar engine choice. Diesel will last 3X’s longer than gasoline engine. Really glad that GM brought the diesel back into Suburbans. New 3.0 is also silent. Amazing engine.
Sweet looking ride! Love it! Now throw a supercharger on it and we have something.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; but I find those wheels hideous.
