The 2021 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Online Configurator Shows All Options and Prices: Surprises Await!

Some of the choices and options are surprising.

The all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban are fully revealed via their online configurators. We get to see all the images, options, and prices. Let’s dig in and see what’s what.

As we reported before, the new Tahoe and Suburban use a new T1 architecture (based on the new Silverado and Sierra pickup trucks). These full-size SUVs grow in overall size. They switch to independent rear suspension and offer much more interior passenger and cargo room than before.

It all starts with a 2021 Chevy Tahoe 2WD LT model at a sticker price of $55,095 (including shipping and destination fees). The destination freight charge is a relatively low $1,295. The 4×4 system adds precisely $3,000 to the price of the new Tahoe.

The Tahoe comes in four trim levels:

  • LT,
  • Z71 (4×4 only)
  • Premier
  • High Country

The Tahoe LT, Z71, and Premier trim levels are only available with one engine/transmission offering. It is the familiar 5.3-liter gas V8 that is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The top of the line High Country model comes only with a 6.2-liter V8.

  • 5.3-liter V8 is rated at 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.
  • 6.2-liter V8 is rated at 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The new 2021 Tahoe 4×4 Z71 starts at $60,495. If you load this one up with every option, the price goes up to $68,960. Once you step up to the luxurious Tahoe 4×4 High Country model, the starting price jumps up to $73,895. The rest of the optional equipment can take the price to $84,030.

2021 Chevy Suburban

The all-new Suburban also grows in size and the base Suburban LT 2WD model has a starting M.S.R.P. of $57,795 (including shipping and destination fees). A well-equipped Suburban 4×4 Z71 off-road trim with a complete towing package and several additional options will run $64,935. Once again, the Z71 version is only available with the smaller 5.3-liter V8 that is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. There is currently no 6.2-liter V8 option for the Z71. The Z71 20-inch wheels are still wrapped in the more aggressive all-terrain tires.

What if you want that big 6.2-liter V8 with 420 horsepower? The current online configurator shows it’s only available in the top of the line High Country trim level. If you choose the Suburban High Country 4×4 with nearly every option, the final sticker price goes all the way up to $86,425. This includes the panoramic sunroof, the nicest interior, adaptive cruise control system, optional 22-inch wheels, and more.

It means there is nearly a $30,000 difference the base 2WD Suburban LT and a fully optioned High Country model.
