Pricing figures for the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe have been released thanks to Auto News.
Kicking off the range is the entry-level Chevrolet Tahoe LS that will start at $50,295, a $1,000 premium over the old 2020 model. Sitting in the middle of the Tahoe family is the LT model available from $55,095 or just $800 more than its predecessor. Topping out the range is the Tahoe Premier on sale from $63,895, a $100 discount from the 2020 model.
Chevrolet will commence production of the new Tahoe this spring initially with the short-wheelbase V8-powered models. Production of longer-wheelbase models will commence shortly after, while manufacturing of diesel-equipped models will start in the fall.
The new Tahoe, as well as the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban, sits on GM’s T1 truck platform which also underpins the latest Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon. In addition, the Tahoe features new multi-link independent rear suspension that also helps in adding 10 inches of legroom for those sitting in the third row.
A handful of engines are on offer, including the familiar 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 which deliver 335 hp and 420 hp respectively. Both of these engines include Dynamic Fuel Management technology and more than 12 modes of cylinder deactivation. New to the Tahoe range is an optional Duramax 3.0-liter inline-six turbo-diesel that is rated at 277 hp and 460 lb-ft (623 Nm) of torque.
Chevrolet hasn’t said how much this new diesel will add to the Tahoe’s price but Car and Driver expects it to come at a $4,000 premium.
