The Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban both received an all-new generation for the 2021 model year, with the Tahoe entering its fifth generation, and the Suburban entering its twelfth generation. With that recent generational overhaul, both SUVs also introduced new exterior styling complete with attractive new lighting bits. Now, we’re taking a night tour of the 2023 Chevy Tahoe and 2023 Chevy Suburban lighting setup in the following exclusive GM Authority video.
Hosted by GM Authority Executive Editor Alex Luft, the video is a little over eight and a half minutes long, and includes a thorough breakdown of the exterior lighting for the current-generation Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban, including the Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), headlights, turn signals, assist step lights, tail lights, and more. To note, all of these features apply to the 2021, 2022, and 2023 model years for both the Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban.
The lighting tour starts in front, where the SUVs are equipped with handsome C-shaped DRLs that bookend either end of the grille. The DRLs double as turn signals, with lights in the sideview mirrors providing indicator lights as well. The main forward lighting is provided by thin horizontal housings in the upper corners of the fascia.
Another interesting feature is the string of LED lights in the retractable assist steps, which are complemented by puddle lamps at the bottom of the sideview mirrors. Meanwhile, the taillights incorporate T-shaped inner graphics.
There’s plenty more to go over here, so check out the full video below for a complete rundown. As an added bonus, this lighting video was shot at night during a rain storm, providing a dramatic look at just how effective the exterior lighting of the Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban can be. Hit play to see for yourself:
As a reminder, the fifth-generation Chevy Tahoe and twelfth-generation Chevy Suburban offer three engine options total. These include the atmospheric 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, the atmospheric 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and finally, the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine. Both SUVs ride on top of the GM T1 platform, and both are produced at the GM Arlington plant in Texas as well.
