Chevrolet communicated basic pricing details with its dealers on the 2021 Tahoe on Sunday. 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. So if you’re going for value, the $63,000+ 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Premiere is the one to get. From there, a more detailed pricing breakdown is a mystery.

For instance, we still don’t know the MSRP of the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71, though it is an $1,850 package on the outgoing Tahoe. That said, the 2021 Tahoe Z71 is a more complete SUV and acts as a standalone trim level rather than an optional package. As such, it boasts unique styling cues and more mechanical differences from its more pedestrian stablemates. Similarly, the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe RST is its own trim level, where as before it was a $2,995 package. We’ll have to wait and see for more.

Additionally, the world awaits pricing of the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban will be. Currently, the outgoing Suburban is $2,800 more expensive than the equivalent Tahoe, so the 2021 models should see a similar breakdown. Pricing on the 6.2L V8 and 3.0L Duramax diesel engine are also unconfirmed, but if it’s anything like what we see on the Chevrolet Silverado, they will be priced identically.

Both the 2021 Tahoe and Suburban will start production and go on sale in the US in the middle of the year, with V8-powered Tahoes entering production first. Following this, production of the 2021 Tahoe Duramax will start in the fall.

Overall, this could be seen as a relative value for the 2021 Tahoe. Considering the major engineering improvements that are baked into every model, buyers will get a lot more for their buck. For instance, the 4.9-inch-longer (125 mm) wheelbase and a 6.7-inch (169 mm) increase in overall length bring 40 percent more third-row legroom a 66 percent increase in cargo volume behind the third row, with max cargo room increasing by a figure of 30 percent. The massive gains in cabin space can largely be credited to the first-ever implementation of independent rear suspension.

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.
