Last month, we learned the all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe will carry a starting price of $50,295. It was late last week when pricing for the 2021 GMC Yukon XL was announced, beginning at $54,695. Although Chevy has yet to make an official announcement, Cars Direct has managed to obtain an early order guide revealing pricing for the 2021 Chevy Suburban. It will carry a base price of $52,995, including destination - exactly the same price as the outgoing 2020 model.
Although it is a $2,700 premium over the Tahoe, this factor won't discourage buyers who desire additional interior and cargo space. But remember, this price is only for the base model. Moving up the trim ladder, the Suburban LT begins at $57,795, the RST at $61,095, and the Z71 at $63,195. The Premier trim will set you back $66,595 but it is on longer the top-of-the-line Suburban.
No, that honor now falls to the Suburban High Country. It will begin at a hefty $73,595 - $6,800 more expensive than last year's Premier model ($66,795). That price tag increases by $3,000 when upgrading to 4WD for a grand total of $76,595. Another important fact: the High Country is the only 2021 Suburban trim that comes powered by the 6.2-liter V8 with 420 horsepower. All other lower trims can only be had with the less powerful but still very capable 5.3-liter V8, rated at 355 hp. A diesel engine option is also on the way but pricing is not yet available.
The fact that Chevy managed to retain the new Suburban's base price is excellent news for potential buyers, to say the least.
Because of this, we wouldn't be surprised to see customers decide against buying a 2020 model and wait a little while longer for the 2021s to arrive in dealerships. But it's also important to remember Chevy is offering some pretty attractive discounts on the 2020 Suburban right now. In some cases, there's up to $4,000 in savings and this figure could potentially increase as we get closer to the 2021 model's official launch.
