General Motors has unveiled the redesigned versions of highly profitable Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban. GM controls around 70 percent of the large sport utility market in North America. The automaker is currently offering six models in the full-size SUV segment. These are – Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, and Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV. GM president Mark Reuss said that the company could expand the lineup using its SUVs and large trucks. Big SUVs are big business for General Motors and the new launches could increase its profit. The company will use this profit to develop electric and autonomous vehicles. GM is planning to roll out at least 20 new electronic vehicles by 2023. 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban both share design cues from Chevrolet Silverado pickup. Large prominent grilles and boomerang LED signature lights remind of the pickup.
The redesigned 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is longer than the current Tahoe in terms of dimensions and therefore offers more interior space than present models. The new model has 66 percent more cargo space and allows gives over 122 cubic feet of cargo. MG has offered more car-like independent rear suspension and 10 inches more legroom to passengers in the third row. It will be powered by six-cylinder diesel motor or eight-cylinder gasoline engines. All engines will have a 10-sped transmission. They will come with a new digital electronic architecture that allows over-the-air updates of software. The facelift versions of the vehicles are expected to available in US dealerships next year. Reuss said that MG sees huge potential in selling the new digital functions. The new sport utility vehicles are being assembled in Arlington, Texas.
There will be a 10-inch center infotainment screens for the front row and a 12.6-inch touch screen for the rear seats. There will be a fifteen-inch head-up display for drivers. Describing the all-new vehicles as the ‘ultimate SUVs’, General Motors vice president Tim Herrick said they will offer the best of on-road and off-road. GM said the new SUVs will have over 30 safety and driver convenience technologies. The new rear pedestrian alert system, optional HD surround view, and standard automatic emergency braking are few of them.
