If the Incredible Hulk and Frank Sinatra had a baby, and that baby came out as a full-size SUV... that's the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe. Unbridled force and pure class in the same package.
It used to be one or the other but modern tech and evolving, more complex consumer needs turned the impossible into reality. More so, it gave prospective buyers the power to choose which of the two sides of the 2021 Tahoe bubbles up to the surface more.
With six trims, the LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country, ranging from workhorse to crossover-luxury, three engine choices, and plenty of optional features, the range of Tahoe SUVs is almost unimaginably broad.
Let's take a moment and look at Tahoe's core, its base model, and then consider your options.
What every future Tahoe owner gets is, first and foremost a beautiful, very modern-looking SUV. Remodeled from the ground up, the 2021 Tahoe taps into Chevrolet's new design language. With Silverado's platform serving as its backbone, the Tahoe isn't going to pass unnoticed, but it makes great use of its enormous volume.
Well aware of its dimensions and unapologetic about its might, the 2021 Tahoe's self-assurance is subdued by its sharp, modern exterior lines. With squinting headlights and C-Shaped LEDs cutting into the front grille, the Tahoe looks friendly and approachable without covering the fact that it's a massive, mighty beast. Sinatra's charm on the Hulk's body.
Inside is where you get a perfect sense of just how big the Tahoe is. Seating up to nine passengers or eight adults in comfort, the Tahoe stands at the very top when it comes to interior space, head- and legroom. Profuse with its spaciousness, be it for passengers or storage, there are few trips you'll need to make twice as future owners can fit up to a maximum total of 122.9 cubic feet of cargo – enough for an entire dismantled sedan.
Huge dimensions call for potent engines and the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe has three of those.
First is the tried-and-true standard 5.3-liter V8 that will deliver 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. The top-of-the-line High Country trim comes with a mighty 6.2-liter V8 that can belt out 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. And later this year, a 3.0-liter inline-6 turbodiesel engine will be added to the mix. It sits at 277 horsepower and a whopping 460 pound-feet of torque to help with towing power. Speaking of which, when properly equipped, the 2021 Tahoe can tow up to 8,400 pounds, giving it truck-like capability.
Inside the cabin, the dash is dominated by an impressive 10.2-inch color touchscreen and even base Tahoe models come with perks such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and Bluetooth audio streaming. A great package but you can do even better.
The best value for money sits, as far as we're concerned, with the middle LT trim. For a very reasonable price tag, future owners get 10-way adjustable leather-trimmed and heated front seats, a state-of-the-art Bose nine-speaker sound system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 2 USB ports for every row of seats, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and keyless access and ignition.
The LT trim brings the 2021 Tahoe to luxury crossover standards but offers significantly more interior comfort and engine power for virtually the same cost. Lower trims focus more on Tahoe's powerful engines and huge interior while upper trims will venture deeper into luxury territory. At every step along the way, there will be tons of options to consider and one can truly make a 2021 Tahoe version of their very own.
