2021 Chevy Tahoe vs. 2021 Chevy Suburban | Sherman, TX
Are you interested in buying a large family SUV from Sherman Chevrolet but aren’t sure which model to choose? Most shoppers in Sherman, Texas, choose either the Chevrolet Suburban or the Chevrolet Tahoe. Both models look very similar but have some notable differences, so here’s a quick look at the 2021 versions of the two biggest SUVs in the Chevy lineup.
More Space For Third-Row Passengers and Cargo
The primary difference between the 2021 Suburban and 2021 Tahoe is size. While both models are three-row SUVs, the Suburban is a bit bigger, measuring 15 inches longer than the Tahoe. This gives the third-row passengers a couple extra inches of legroom (first and second rows remain unchanged) and some extra space behind them for storage. Thus, the Suburban offers 144.7 cubic feet of max cargo space behind the first row, while the Tahoe only provides 122.9 cubic feet.
That extra length comes from the elongated wheelbase (134.1 inches vs. 120.9 inches), so the Suburban still remains stable with that extra length. The height and width of both Chevy SUVs remain identical, so the only difference in size is length. That extra length also gives the 2021 Suburban a bigger fuel tank that can hold 4 additional gallons of gasoline.
Luckily, that extra length and weight hardly affects the fuel economy averages in the Suburban, as EPA estimates place both models at identical city and highway rates on every available engine.*
Because the Suburban and Tahoe have the same available engines, their power output is the same. For instance, the 5.3-liter V8 engine will produce 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque when installed in the Tahoe or the Suburban.
The same base LS trim level and engine on the 2021 Suburban will cost almost $3,000 more than they would on the Tahoe.** But, if that extra space in the third row, additional storage room, and slight boost in capability would benefit your family, the higher cost may be worth it.
If you need a spacious, powerful SUV for your family in Sherman, Texas, either the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban or 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe will do. You can find both models in stock now at Sherman Chevrolet.
