According to an early order guide, pricing for the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban will start at $52,995 with destination, which is identical to the 2020 model. Cars Direct first reported the pricing.
Compared to the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, the new Suburban carries $2,700 premium over its (slightly) little brother, but just behind the $54,695 GMC Yukon XL. However, we don’t expect many new Suburbans and Tahoes to be sold in basic trim levels. From the standard model, the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban LT will start at $57,795, while Suburban RST and Suburban Z71 models have been priced from $61,095 and $63,195, respectively. The penultimate trim level is the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban Premier, at $66,595. Then, at $73,595, the new 2021 Suburban High Country will cap the lineup. That’s a $6,800 premium over the last-generation’s top trim level.
Some options, like four-wheel drive, cost an extra $3,000. All 2021 Suburbans will start with a 355 hp 5.3L L84 V8 engine, except the High Country model, which will come with the 420 hp L87 6.2L V8 engine. As a reminder, the 3.0L Duramax Diesel is available on all trim levels, sans the Z71 model. A more complete pricing breakdown is not yet available, per the initial report.
Considering all of the major advancements that the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban brings to the table, customers should be relieved that the new SUV will maintain a steady pricing strategy. Some highlights of this clean-sheet design based on the GM T1 platform include growth in virtually all dimensions, especially in cargo space and third row seating. This is because GM has opted to integrate independent rear suspension for the first time in this all-new family of truck-based utility vehicles.
The interior of the 2021 Suburban (and Tahoe) also seek to dazzle with a 10-inch center screen, massive tablet-style rear seat entertainment screens, and the omission of a column shifter. We’re told that many of these interior updates will eventually be found on the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra soon.
