The all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe which is now on sale across the Middle East, stamps General Motor’s authority on the SUV segment across the region, claims the manufacturer.
The venerable SUV has completely redesigned, including powertrain revisions and a new approach to driving dynamics.
“The legend is bigger, bolder and better for 2021, boasting best-in-class interior1 and unmatched technology,” said GM in a statement, adding that the Tahoe was developed for the Middle East using unprecedented feedback from regional and local customers.
“The Tahoe is a legend in the region with a loyal following that swears by its ability to balance performance and practicality,” said said Luay Al Shurafa, president and managing director, General Motors Africa and Middle East. “The all-new Chevrolet Tahoe will re-forge that legend. We’ve listened to what both our regional and international customers love about the Tahoe and cranked everything up to deliver the most capable, most confident and most connected Tahoe ever, with even more choices than before.
“I have every confidence that the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe will thrill and delight our customers in the Middle East. Get ready for the Official SUV of Action.”
Driver Notes: GM talks the new Tahoe
“Built with that regional feedback and local customer priorities in mind, the all-new Chevrolet Tahoe has undergone a complete transformation, combining the strongest aspects of its new full-size truck architecture with entirely new systems tailored for the needs of today’s SUV drivers and passengers.
“For the first time ever, Chevrolet is introducing the Tahoe Z71 as a standalone trim rather than as an additional package. Designed to tackle the toughest dunes and
fiercest adventures, the Tahoe Z71 stands out with the best-in-class approach angle of up to 34.9 degrees.
“Chevrolet designers have created an entirely new look for the 2021 Tahoe, featuring a bigger, bolder stance and proportions. Available in four distinct trims (LT, LS, Z71 and Premier), the all-new Chevrolet Tahoe offers customers more choices than ever before, made possible by the new architecture. Each trim has been carefully refined for drivers to find the perfect blend of eye-catching design and premium comfort that best suits their lifestyle.
“Inside the Official SUV of Action, the biggest change that customers will notice is Tahoe’s best-in-class spaciousness1. With 254 mm more third-row legroom, the all-new Tahoe is even more comfortable for all passengers, making every seat the best in house. Chevrolet designers have also unlocked up to 66% more cargo space behind the third row, making the 2021 Tahoe the practical full-sized SUV for every adventure.
“With the additional space in the all-new Chevrolet Tahoe, designers added a best-in-class center fridge console, outstripping similar offers on the market. Capable of subzero temperatures, the center console fridge is powered by a dedicated compressor and can fit six 0.5L bottles with room left for road-trip snacks.
“Despite the 2021 Tahoe being a full-sized SUV, it’s been designed to drive small. With dramatic improvements to its driving dynamics, the all-new Tahoe now offers best-in-class drive dynamics. The biggest change is an all-new independent multi-link rear suspension architecture which enables first-in-class Four-Corner Air Ride Adaptive Suspension1 which provides load-leveling at all corners of the vehicle and up to four inches of ride-height adjustment. It is paired with the latest generation Magnetic Ride Control and together they ensure that the 2021 Tahoe delivers the smoothest ride, on and off-road.
“Built on an all-new chassis, the 2021 Tahoe further elevates its much-lauded performance, while keeping a keen eye on efficiency. It features several class-leading technologies1 to optimize performance and conserve fuel, such as an updated V-8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management and Auto Stop/Start tech, all mated to an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission as standard.
“The all-new Tahoe is also packed with unrivalled connectivity and technology, with up to five display screens in total, including an 8-inch-diagonal central color touchscreen and 10-inch-diagonal central color touchscreen on LT trim and above all in High Definition. Available are also an 8-inch-diagonal instrument cluster, 15-inch head-up display, dual 12.6-inch diagonal rear seat LCD displays – the segment’s most advanced rear seat media system1, keeping rear passengers entertained through the longest drives.
“Chevrolet also understands that safety is paramount for both families and the solo adventurer and has packed the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe with up to 25 safety and vision features, highlighted by a class-leading 360 camera with nine views including HD Surround Vision and Rear Camera Mirror. Other features include Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Pedestrian Alert, restraint system with inboard seat-side airbag and Passenger Sensing System, Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, Front Pedestrian Detection, Rear Park Assist, Rear Seat Reminder and IntelliBeam automatic headlamp control.
“Available driver awareness technologies include new Rear Pedestrian Detection, Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Front and Rear Park Assist and best-in-class Head-Up Display, many of which are standard on the majority of Tahoe models.
“Elevating the customer ownership experience to the next level, OnStar will soon be available in the all-new Tahoe, unlocking its full potential. The pioneering in-vehicle technology, backed by a human touch, will make every drive in the Tahoe more connected and protected as soon as a customer subscribes.
“Safety features such as Automatic Crash Response means the all-new Tahoe can call for help, even when you can’t. When you need it most, an OnStar Advisor will patch into your car and stay on the line with you while simultaneously working with emergency services to send you the right help. Another way OnStar will improve customers life is through Stolen Vehicle Assist. Working hand-in-hand with the local authorities, OnStar will help you retrieve your stolen SUV by bringing the vehicle to an idle speed and with a remote ignition block signal, the engine can be prevented from turning back on again once it has been switched off.”
OnStar also enables Chevrolet to offer a range of Connected Services to add value and convenience to customers’ busy lives with services such as remote lock and unlock, vehicle diagnostics and remote start to name but a few. The all-new Tahoe is also available with a Wi-Fi data plan for up to 7 devices, keeping you and your passengers connected, wherever the road may lead.
