General Motors has confirmed with MC&T that the start of regular production (SORP) has commenced for the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 GMC Yukon. The longer wheelbase Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL will follow shortly after. Later in the year, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade will join in on the action, as will 3.0L LM2 Duramax variants of the T1-platform full-size SUV products. These vehicles are vital to the business of America’s biggest automaker, with nearly 50 percent of the full-size SUV market captured by Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac.

Officially, the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe starts at $50,295 for the base-model LS trim level. Up from that, the 2021 Tahoe LT comes in at $55,095, and the top-end 2021 Tahoe Premier starts at $63,895. Destination is included. The price changes from Tahoe LS, LT and Premier are +$1,000, +$800, and -$100. Then there’s the new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe High Country, which starts at over $70,000. The AWD version is nearly $74,000, before options. A $4,605 Premium Package adds on top of that. To make a statement, the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe High Country is also available with nine different wheel options.

The variant we’re most excited about, however, is the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71, which will come in at a rather steep $60,495 – which could buy you a Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 AEV Bison and a V6 supercharger. Either way, it’s easy to envision wealthy ranchers, alpine vacationers, and wealthy off-road enthusiasts otherwise flocking to order this thing.

The mirror image of the 2021 Tahoe Z71 is the 2021 GMC Yukon AT4, which won’t be available until fall 2020, according to the brand. However, the iconic Denali version is available for ordering right now, and mirrors the Tahoe High Country in price, coming in around $70,000 for the 2WD version before options. An exclusive $1,095 White Frost Tintcoat paint, a $6,500 Denali Premium Package and a couple of here-and-theres will quickly put the 2021 GMC Yukon Denali above $85,000 without trying.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

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. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

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.
