It's only slightly more than last year's model.
The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe was recently revealed, kicking off a trio of General Motors debuts that also included the GMC Yukon and the Cadillac Escalade. As the first of the three brands to reveal its version of the new full-size SUV, it only makes sense that Chevy is the first one to announce pricing.
We expect the Tahoe to be the least expensive of the three and Chevy has just announced a starting price of $50,295 for the base LS trim. As for the longer and more spacious Chevrolet Suburban, expect it to cost around $2,700 more than a comparably-equipped Tahoe (official pricing will be announced later).
At $50,295, the 2021 Tahoe is only $1,000 more than the 2020 model even though it includes more standard safety features such as LED lights and autonomous emergency braking. Stepping up to the LT brings the price to $55,095 (up $800 from 2020) while the top Premier trim costs $63,895 (down $100 from 2020).
The first Tahoes to arrive at dealers will be LT, Z71, Premier, and High Country models, though it appears as though pricing is not yet available for the Z71 and High Country trims. If you want the base LS or the sporty RST trim, those will be arriving at dealers at a later time along with the Suburban.
Two engines will be available at launch - a 5.3-liter V8 producing 355 horsepower or a larger 6.2-liter V8 with 420 ponies, both featuring cylinder deactivation and both mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. A 3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel will be available later but production won't start until the fall and pricing has not been announced yet.
All Tahoe models benefit from a new independent rear suspension, which should improve ride comfort and offers more cargo and passenger space. Production is set to begin in the Spring with deliveries happening soon after.
