5 reasons to buy the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

1. Space for everyone and everything

Chevrolet Tahoe Review: Front Seats | CarMax

The 2021 Tahoe offers a whopping 168.3 cu-ft of passenger volume, spread across your choice of eight or nine seats total, meaning your passengers will have plenty of space to travel in comfort. A generous 25.5 cu-ft of cargo volume behind the rear seats—increasing to 72.7 cu-ft with rear seats folded—means there is more than enough space for your luggage, furniture, or just a really big haul at the grocery store.

2. Your choice of powerful engines

Chevrolet Tahoe Review: Engine | CarMax

The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe has three engines available, including one brand new diesel powerplant. The gas engines come in two variants; a 5.3L V8 producing 355 horsepower and capable of a maximum towing capacity of 8,400 lbs when properly equipped, and a 6.2L V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque—all the grunt you could want.

 New for 2021 is a 3.0L turbocharged diesel engine, which is optional on most trims.

3. A packed feature list

Three engines and two driving-wheel configurations? That's nice. But if we are talking about choice, let's get into the feature list for the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, because there's a lot offered here. Standard features include a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto functionality, LED headlights and forward collision mitigation. And for off-road enthusiasts, the Z71 trim includes low-range gearing, hill-descent control, and all-terrain tires.

4. Plenty of pulling power

With the great selection of engines on the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, one thing remains certain across all configurations: you will never be lacking for hauling power. Of course, for the maximum towing capacity, you will want the 5.3L engine in two-wheel drive configuration, capable (when properly equipped) of a max estimated towing capacity of 8,400 lbs.

But even the 6.2L engine in the four-wheel drive configuration is no slouch; it has a max towing capacity, when properly equipped, of 8,100 lbs.
So not only does the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe have plenty of space inside for your cargo but more than enough power to haul anything else you may have to transport.

5. A comfortable ride

New independent rear suspension improves handling, cargo capacity, and most importantly, ride comfort on the fifth-generation Tahoe. This improved suspension means an ultra-smooth journey for you and your passengers. For those long-haul road trips and holidays, the combination of space and a comfortable ride means the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is an ideal choice.
