The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban have gotten a makeover for the 2021 model year.

When the Chevrolet Silverado was redesigned for its current generation, there was little doubt that a redesign of the Tahoe and Suburban weren’t far behind. Now it is certain. The 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe have debuted in Detroit sporting engineering, body, and tech enhancements from its tires to its top.

These are the major takeaways from the debut.

The redesign gives the Suburban and Tahoe class-leading interior space.

The Tahoe got 66 percent more cargo room behind its third row and the Suburban got 19 percent more maximum cargo space behind its first row. The 2021 Tahoe has 25 percent more cargo room behind its third-row seat than the 2020 Ford Expedition does. The 2021 Suburban (shown above) has the most passenger and cargo space of any SUV.

It isn’t hard to believe given the ride and handling improvements from one generation to the next in the Silverado. All three vehicles share a platform. Chevrolet will offer the vehicles with Magnetic Ride Control and an Air Ride Adaptive Suspension. The new air suspension allows automatic leveling on all four corners of the vehicle and can adjust a vehicle’s ride height by up to four inches.
