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.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
