The all-new 2021 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe make their official debut. These big family truck-based SUVs grow in size and offer more advanced technology, but how do they compare to the competition.
The Chevy Tahoe is currently the dominant sales leader among full-size truck-based SUVs.
Here is a look at how the specs and features stack up against the new Ford Expedition and the Dodge Durango.
2021 Chevy Suburban
The new Suburban grows little in exterior size, but picks up big interior legroom and cargo space increases thanks to an independent rear suspension and a thorough redesign.
The new Suburban offers three engine options: 5.3-liter V8, 6.2-liter V8, and a 3.0-liter Diesel I6. All of the engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and a 3.23 rear axle ratio.
All of these engines have the same specs as in their Silverado and Sierra pickup truck brethren: 355 hp/383 lb-ft, 420 hp/460 lb-ft, and 277 hp/460 lb-ft – respectively.
Here are the power options for the Ford Expedition and the Dodge Durango.
Here is how the new Suburban and Tahoe compare to competition on legroom and cargo volume. The numbers under “Expedition” refer to the legroom and cargo volume for the “Expedition MAX” – the long wheelbase version of the Expedition.
The new Chevy Suburban can safely claim the most cavernous interior of all current SUVs out there.
Naturally, there is more to it than just engine options and interior space. It’s about available technology, hauling & towing capability, interior design, fuel economy, price, and more.
We will have to wait until we drive & test the new Suburban and Tahoe for a final verdict.
