Dealerships across the United States are in the midst of welcoming the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe to their lots and showrooms.

Chevrolet vs. Ford: Which brand’s pickup trucks are the best?

GM Authority reports that dealers have taken to YouTube to post videos of their recently arrived Tahoe models, including the well-equipped High Country and Z71 trims and models equipped with the Texas Edition package.

With higher-dollar trims arriving first, it’s clear that General Motors gave its most profitable Tahoe models a privileged place at the head of the production line.

Production on the Tahoe and the closely related GMC Yukon was delayed earlier this year by plant shutdowns related to COVID-19. Assembly is in full swing now, although it’s not clear when all promised Tahoe configurations will be available. Models carrying the 277-horsepower 3.0-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine will go into production later in 2020.

The Arlington, Texas, assembly plant that produces the Tahoe is also tasked with making the all-new Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon XL, and Cadillac Escalade. These models are expected to go into production at some point this summer.

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe highlights

The 2021 Tahoe will eventually be available in six trim levels: LS, LT, Premier, RST, Z71, and High Country. Three engine options are offered: a 355-horsepower 5.3-liter V8, a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8, and the turbodiesel. Each Tahoe comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Compared to its 2020 predecessor, the new Tahoe has a significantly more spacious interior, including 28 more cubic feet of total cargo space and 10 inches of extra third-row legroom. It also boasts a smoother ride, thanks to a new standard independent multilink rear suspension, an available Air Ride Adaptive Suspension, and optional Magnetic Ride Control.

Other highlights for the Tahoe include a new 10-inch touch screen, standard LED headlights and taillights, and a bigger menu of standard safety technologies.
