If the fourth-generation Chevy Tahoe perhaps wasn’t big enough of modern enough for your liking, this all-new fifth-generation 2021 Tahoe might just be. This short-wheelbase version of the mighty Suburban was already one of the best big family haulers in North America, but now it’s been given its first full redesign for more than a decade for the 2021 model year, the Tahoe has been taken to another level entirely.
A lot of what buyers love about the Tahoe stays the same, such as its reliance on powerful V-8 engines, its truck-based construction, huge interior and its incredible capability. However, it gets a sensational new look that turns this large SUV into a real head-turner.
Plenty of large SUVs have abandoned their ladder-frame construction and morphed into crossovers over the last decade or so, but not the Tahoe, thankfully. If you didn’t know its origins and history you could be forgiven for thinking the all-new Tahoe might be a full-size crossover, but it’s still very much a capable, truck-based SUV.
There’s no denying that it’s still very much a big, imposing and no-nonsense model with way more capability than a similar-sized crossover, but the new exterior styling is more sophisticated, aerodynamic and modern than last year’s model.
It’s easy to see which other vehicles in the Chevy lineup have influenced the design of the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, and the good news is the Tahoe has inherited most of the best styling cues of the latest Silverado pickup and the ultra-modern, Camaro-like Chevy Blazer.
It might have been tempting for Chevy to go with some smaller displacement turbocharged powerplants to usher in a new generation of the Tahoe, but it’s actually pretty much business as usual under the hood for the 2021 model year. There’s no sign of four or even six cylinders here unless you wait around for the six-cylinder turbodiesel to arrive sometime in the future.
The majority of models in the new Tahoe lineup will be powered by a familiar 5.3-litre gas V-8 that puts out 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent to the rear or all four wheels through a standard 10-speed automatic transmission.
If you want even more power and capability there’s also the option of a 6.2-litre V-8, but to get this one you’ll have to go for the top-of-the-range High Country trim level. This powerful unit develops 420 horsepower and a huge 460 lb.-ft. of torque, but it still used the same 10-speed automatic transmission as the 5.3-litre engine.
For the moment, Canadian buyers will only be able to choose between the 5.3 and 6.2-litre gas V-8s, but for those who want it, a 277 horsepower 3.0-liter inline-six will arrive at some point in the future.
There are five trim levels to choose from in the all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe lineup. The entry-level version of the new Tahoe is the LS trim level, and this is the model you’ll have to go with if you’re absolutely determined to have a rear-drive Tahoe as the rest of the range is standard four-wheel-drive.
After the entry-level LS model you come to the LT, Z71 and RST trim levels before the range tops off with the stunning High Country range-topper. Additional trim levels are expected to become available later on in the lifecycle of this fifth-generation Tahoe, but these five are a pretty good start with a lot of choices to suit different buyers.
If interior space for passengers and cargo is a big deal on your list of must-have for a new SUV, you’re going to love what Chevy has done to the Tahoe this time around. The cabin now offers more than 4,757 litres of interior space, which translates to a sensational 42 inches of second-row legroom that’s three inches more than the old Tahoe. It’s even more impressive in the third-row seats where there’s now an additional 10 inches of legroom, which now makes those seats a genuine option for adults to sit in as there’s now a very grown-up 34.9-inches of legroom back there.
If you’re in the market for full-size family-friendly SUVs that can tow with the best and transport up to nine people and their cargo very comfortably, the all-new fifth-generation 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is going to be tough to beat.
