    The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Is a Big SUV that Will Pack Big Changes Underneath

    A radically different suspension setup should help the Chevy in its fight against the Ford Expedition.

    • A new Chevrolet Tahoe large SUV is on the way, and here's what we know about the next-generation model.
    • It will use GM's new T1 truck platform and switch to an independent rear suspension, which should improve ride and handling and increase the amount of passenger and cargo space inside.
    • The new Tahoe is expected to be revealed later in 2019 and arrive as a 2021 model.


    The Chevrolet Tahoe, the Silverado's uptown relative and the gold standard of large American SUVs, is about to get redone. This next-generation Tahoe will make the long-awaited switch to an independent rear suspension. Without the solid axle bouncing around under the feet of third-row occupants, the ride and handling should improve. We also expect increases in passenger and cargo volumes as a result of the new rear end.

    The underpinnings are known within GM as the T1 truck platform, which the Tahoe will share with the next-generation Suburban, Cadillac Escalade, and GMC Yukon. These rigs will also employ GM's all-new Global B electrical architecture, which provides added computing power, over-the-air updates, and advanced network security for highly automated vehicles.

    I actually like the way that looks. Though I doubt that GM will go back to the days of having the Tahoe and Silverado share their front clips.

    the more I see of the new Silverado that more I like it. However the Sierra is even better looking especially in higher trims

    Probably because they have their own detail of mechanics that run a daily checks on each vehicle before they're used. I wouldn't use that as a barometer of their durability. Anyway, on to that rendering, that wouldn't work because the front is too high like it is in the trucks and because of that high hood, the windshield is extremely short, almost like a chop top.

    GM's BoF SUVs will have their own fascia, and HOPEFULLY their own interior design. That said its near to what I conceive a a two door 4X4 off road capable T1Blazer Super Utility to be.

    I find it sad that some people wish for GM to fail and can't comprehend any good news. A plausible explanation for this kind of behavior is that you have a miserable life so you wish the same to others. Cory Pham, Autoblog Poster

    GM must return its divisions to being interdependent entities within the corporation. Decentralize and free the different divisions talents to foster brand differentiation and customer loyalty.

    I kind of like it but want to see it in real life though. The new Chevrolet trucks are starting to show up in greater numbers on the local lot I noticed yesterday afternoon, everything from the WT to higher end and they still look a bit weird to me compared to the Ford and Dodge. Although I'd say I am getting used to the look a little more.

    I saw that too, your head would have to rest on the headliner to have an even modest forward view; making the greenhouse taller would kill the visual aesthetics.

    I don't think the irs is something people really were clamoring for in this segment. Last time around they said it would've been so much heavier it'd lower EPA estimates. I guess they cut body weight enough with alum doors and hood etc that they feel they will come out on gas mileage?

    Also seems certain that the wheelbase will increase as it did on the Pickup.

    IRS is going to finally allow for a true fold flat 3rd row and it also eliminates the only claimed advantage that the Expy/Navi had over the GM Big 3. What is in place now is this weird floor angle when the 3rd row is folded. On the Burb/XL/ESV is isn't that noticeable because they're not usually folded flat, but on the Tahoe/Yukon/Slade it'll be a huge benefit.

    Hmmm. So that sounds like Camero Design Studios had a big hand in this critter?

    The new GM Utes don't share sheetmetal with the trucks, and they haven't for a long time.

    It's probably just an optical illusion of sorts brought on by the current models tall blunt front end that makes the front window seem short.

    While I don't think that's it, I like the look on the SUV better then the truck.
