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.
Car and Driver
- 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.
