2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe: More Quantity, More Quality

General Motors’ recently redesigned full-size, light-duty pickup trucks — the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and related GMC Sierra 1500 — have impressed us for drivetrain refinement and overall capability, but their interiors remain a weak link, both in terms of materials quality and overall design. Fortunately, the SUVs that stem from that platform have also been redesigned, and they appear to keep a lot of the good stuff and toss out some of the bad. We’ll start you off with the Chevrolet pair in the redesigned Tahoe and Suburban.

Now, the Suburban is an extended-length version of the Tahoe. Both SUVs grew with the redesign, but the Tahoe grew a lot more — about 7 inches overall in length — so the gap between the two of them is shrinking. Styling is a light evolution over what you see on the Silverado 1500, with a tall grille bisected by twin crossbars bearing the Chevy bow tie. The piped, C-shaped lighting elements play a more prominent role here than on the pickup trucks, as they’re more split off from other lighting elements, but the overall theme is fairly similar.

The best news comes inside, where the dashboard shares very little of the Silverado’s tired look. It’s instead a more low-set, open design with controls offset on different layers and a standard 10-inch touchscreen perched above it all. The second row can have dual 12.6-inch touchscreens that can stream independent content from a mobile device.
