The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe was recently revealed and leave it to Chevy to quickly put a price tag on it soon after. Yes, pricing has been announced for the new Tahoe, but it’s got some people a little surprised. Variably equipped and with an assortment of new safety features, one would think that a little update would call for an increase in price, but the Chevrolet Tahoe starting MSRP barely moved. The 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe was starting at $49,000 (plus destination fee). Chevy didn’t seem to break the bank with the new additions, because the new starting MSRP for the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is $50,295 (plus destination fee).
Right, just $1,295 more. Is it a mistake? Not according to Chevy and the manufacturer’s website. Always in competition with the GMC Yukon and the Cadillac Escalade, being the first to announce pricing is the way for Chevy to get in the lead, and the Tahoe is already expected to be the most affordable of the three. That starting price above is for the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe LS trim (base), but we’re sure the price will climb as the lineup goes on. For now, there’s a nice assortment of safety features not found on the 2020 model.
For 2021, the Chevrolet Tahoe will offer LED lights and autonomous emergency braking standard, but word says there will be a few more additions to make that $1000 price increase worth it. Going across the lineup, it’s a quick climb, from $50,295 (plus destination fee) to $55,095 (plus destination fee) for the LT trim. Then, looking at the final trim, Premier, and it has a starting MSRP of $63,895 (plus destination fee). There are actually six trims in total, but pricing has yet to be released for the Z71, RST, and High Country trims, so we can’t take any guesses at the moment. We do know that the first Tahoe trim to arrive at dealers will be the LT, Z71, Premier, and High Country trims. For those looking for something more affordable with the LS trim, or want the sporty RST trim, those will be arriving later in the year.
When it comes to the powertrain, we know there will be at least two engines available to equip at launch. There will most likely be a 5.3-liter V8 engine, able to 355 horsepower standard, or the larger 6.2-liter V8 engine able to generate 420 horsepower. Whether it will be an option on all trims or just some is unclear, but there’s a third engine also being introduced to the lineup. It’s a 3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel, but it won’t be available until the fall, so hold on if looking for that powertrain. The other two engines feature cylinder deactivation for improving fuel efficiency at steady speeds, and both engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Regardless of the trim, all of the new 2021 Tahoe models will come with a new independent rear suspension for improved ride comfortability and stability.
Production for the new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe will start in the spring of 2021. Soon after, orders and deliveries will start taking place. You know on NowCar, you can shop for a car online and get a great deal before the rush.
