In this video I'm gon na show you all the options and for the first time we can see all the colors available. All the wheel options but they're also a few surprises I've, been following this news: every single day trying to learn everything about the new Tahoe and Suburban, but I'm, still a bit surprised by the engine options and some of the wheel and tire combinations that Chevrolet is Offering so let's dig into it straightaway and build one of the more affordable Tahoe's? First then I want to build a z71 special off road edition and then we'll also build a couple of Suburbans together and to just kind of learn. Everything about the new Tahoe and Suburban. So when you go to chevrolet.com right here now, the configurator is online and you can see that it all starts with a two wheel: drive LT. There is actually gon na be four trim levels on the new Tahoe and Suburban LT premiere is this 71, which is four wheel drive only and of course, high country is their top of the line model and the new Tahoe is all new. Its arrives on the new t1 truck platform that's also shared with the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra here are a couple of different looks at the new Tahoe right here, including the interior. The interior is all new it's, now more roomy for people and cargo. The wheelbase is a tiny bit longer. The overall length is longer they're using independent rear suspension and if you watch some of our other videos, you know all the details about this, because the independent suspension in the back allows them to drop the floor, making the passengers more comfortable in the rear.
And, of course, the latest technologies are here, 10.2 inch, infotainment screen. All of that is there. But if you start with a 5.3 liter, v8 LT, two wheel, drive the starting price is fifty five thousand ninety five dollars, as you can right here, and this is including the destination freight charges, but a pleasant surprise right here. The destination charges are one thousand two hundred ninety five dollars. If you know big trucks, usually the destination charge is something like 1500 1600, sometimes even more so seeing this lower number is already a pleasant surprise and it's. Basically, a 55000 vehicle two wheel drive. Of course, two wheel drive is not enough. So if you select four wheel drive the price goes up precisely 3000 bucks, so that's not a huge up charge. It is an up charge and it's. A very sophisticated four wheel. Drive system for high for low is available as well, but the LT is only available with a 5.3 liter v8, which is made it to a 10 speed automatic transmission. As you can see right here, this engine is familiar it's also available in the Silverado 355 horsepower and 383 pound feet of torque. The 10 speed is the only option. 8 speed. 6 speeds. None of those transmissions are available in the Tahoe. I, like that, actually there's simplifying their offerings, it's a little bit easier to understand and see exactly what that brings us. Of course z71 is my favorite, because it makes the whole truck and I'm gon na call it the truck because it's, based on the truck just more macho, you can see right here on the screen, you're getting special treatment, special grilles, these 71 badging skid plate up Front red tow hooks a special wheel and then a very aggressive tire combination right here, so you're getting quite a lot you're, also getting special off road modes and we haven't driven the new Tahoe and Suburban, yet we're, hoping to do that very soon.
So stay tuned for that those videos are coming to either TfL truck youtube channel or also on TfL offroad youtube channel. One thing: I'm, a little bit disappointed by the z71 Tahoe and suburban are only available with a 5.3. You cannot get that BP off road version with a 6 2 premiere version by the way the z71 starts at 60000 for 95, so that's already a 60000 Tahoe premiere version just adds a little bit. More luxury features starts at 66, 895. Finally, the high country – this is basically a new trim for the Tahoe and available also on the suburban, has a 6.2 liter v8. Also a ten speed and right now the diesel is not available. They said the 3 litre straight six easel will be available right now. It'S not in the configurator, so we don't know exactly how much it's gon na cost it's likely gon na cost the same as a 6 2. But right now we quite don't know so. Here'S now look at this Tahoe high country and well let's just go to the colors because it starts with black satin. Still metallic is the color I quite like. Actually, of course, it looks different on the computer or and then, when you actually take it outside and actually see it in the real world, but right here on the computer image, it looks pretty nice there's, some it white. There is shadow gray metallic it's gon na. Take a little while to load go on Empire beige I'm, not a page guy midnight blue, the blue.
This blue is a little bit too dark and I'm actually great with metallic and those are all standard colors across the Tahoe and Suburban range. There are seven color options, then there are two premium colors and this cherry red wow. I think that could be the color. I would choose, and probably with a z71 package and of course there is iridescent pearl tri coat white and that's a 909 5 option. So let's choose that and then in the interior. I really like to Tom kind of effect, so this jet black mocha, I like coffee as well. This is just top notch. I really like the way this looks, so you can actually see it right here. The of course is fully redesigned. The Tahoe has push button control for the transmission, which I'm not quite sure about, but I haven't driven it yet so I'm, not certain exactly how I can get used to that, but the materials look really premium, it's really well done. So let's just kind of, let me show you just what else is available panoramic power. Sunroof power retractable assist steps. I mean this is the Premium Package on the high country, so you're actually adding even more luxury features, and I really like the Max trailering package. They also announced the towing numbers it's between about eighty two hundred pounds and about eighty four hundred pounds, so it's not class leading towing numbers, but GM and Chevrolet have very, very serious about towing and I'll.
Show you that in a second because of course, 360 degree cameras, towing, checklists, so everything almost everything that's available in the Silverado is available here. As far as towing technologies hooking up the trailer and, of course there is an additional option, which is actually tire pressure monitoring system for the trailer, which is a very sophisticated system which actually ties into the truck so so that's very important. You can monitor your trailer tires, not just your Tahoe suburban tires and look at this. The high country has what is this eight different wheel options, eight they're, all twenty twos, so you'll be riding in style. I mean you. Can I don't know eight choices, it's just huge, so here you can see all of it. Most of them are about eighteen hundred dollars additional. So you are paying quite a lot of money for a lot of these wheel options. I'M gon na choose this one, and everything else is almost checked off. I like this option. This is the illuminated bow tie emblem 450. If you're going for this 80000 Tahoe might as well really like that option, because at night it makes the vehicle stand out in a very big way: highway safety kit, just one additional thing and here's the tire pressure monitoring system for the trailer, so you've got to Select that because you want to be the most safe and most capable and old, tacos will tow just over 7000 pounds or about 7500 pounds, which is actually a pretty good rating just for the base version as well.
Finally, rear seat, entertainment, which is dual screens in the back and yes, you can kind of nitpick and get some of the other options like the Floor Liners. But the final price is just a hair over 84 grand. So yes, a fully loaded high country, Tahoe 84000 and once again let me show you, the interior, just another look at the interior, because this two tone, black and mocha, looks, I think, really great, just check this out it's right here and you can see you can Get either captain chairs or a bench seat in the back, it just depends on which trim level you purchase so that's that's it right there. So let's switch to the suburban really fast. I want to show you some of the options in the suburban and also talk about one other small disappointment that I found specifically with the z71 version of it. So the suburban starts at fifty six thousand five hundred before destination versus 53. So the suburban is about twenty five hundred dollars more, maybe just a little bit more than the Tahoe, so you're paying for that extra wheelbase exercise, extra length and extra accommodation in a suburban dance, it's gigantic it's, just it was big before now, it's, even bigger, and So with it could make for a great Road short vehicle for sure, so I want to build a z71 suburban, because why not if you're gon na go over landing camping, this must be the choice.
It already looks pretty good, especially with the beefy tires, not a huge lift and we don't know enough a lot. I don't know a lot about all the suspension modifications, but the z71 usually comes with special tuning, so I'm, really looking forward to driving this suspension system. In the real world once, like I said again, 5.3 liter is the only option for the z71. I wish the big engine was available. Maybe maybe they'll do it later. Color got ta, go cherry red. There is no other way about it, but but here's the thing when I go to packages and I like actually the z71 signature package, it adds a panoramic sunroof, which is a nice option for outdoors, and it also comes with all of this extra equipment. You could see here surround vision, cameras, 360 degree. I mean you can see all it's like 20 different items on this list for about forty seven hundred dollars. But when you go to the wheel and tire package right here, it's only available with a 20 inch wheel, 20 20 inch by 9 inches, and I was hoping it would also be available with an 18. Because for off roading, especially you want the bigger sidewall. Not just a big diameter wheel, but but actually a bigger tire for more comfort, and actually so you can air it down just a little bit more and you know maybe do some more serious offroading, but maybe the suburban is just just too big for that series Of roading, so it might be just enough to have a 20 inch wheel.
I was just hoping for more options. The high country has eight wheel options, so how come the z71 only has one? I don't get it once again. Every the option kit is similar there's. Another really interesting thing for 135 bucks. You can add a little emblem light that shines down from the mirror on the ground. You can see here, so it adds a luxury touch to basically any Tahoe. You can configure and suburban so that's kind of a premium luxury touch and, of course, at 68000, or just over that for this particular z71, suburban you're in the luxury retailer territory, at least in my opinion. So now you guys see what's available for the new 2021 Tahoe and Suburban all the options. The three liter diesel will come later when Nets update. It will let you know, of course, on our website as well, so go back to TFO truck comm for the latest news views and real world reviews and, of course, SUV. Full size.
