Z71 Off-Road Package Transforms to Trim Level for 2021 Tahoe and Suburban

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban

The Chevy Tahoe and Suburban have traditionally offered drivers plenty of power, space and capability. For 2021, the well-equipped SUVs will add off-roading giant to its list of attributes with a separate Z71 trim level. Formerly presented as a set of optional equipment, the Z71 off-road package morphs into a 2021 trim level with features such as massive skid plates, signature design elements, horizontal tow hooks in red, a higher clearance stance, Goodyear Wrangler TrailRunner AT™ all-terrain tires, 20-inch wheels and hill-descent control.

The 2021 Suburban Z71 and 2021 Tahoe Z71 will be equipped with standard four-wheel drive, four-corner air suspension, and Magnetic Ride Control for a responsive, customizable driving performance. The new, class-exclusive four-corner air suspension allows drivers to toggle among three driving modes — Normal, Off-Road 1 and Off-Road 2 — to match varying terrains. Chevy fans will recognize the Z71’s Magnetic Ride Control as a feature from the 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray, another formidable, fun-to-drive model.

No official word has been released if the 2021 Tahoe Z71 and Suburban Z71 will offer the fuel-efficient and responsive 3.0-liter Duramax® diesel engine. What’s for sure as of now, though, is that drivers will have an option between two engines — a 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8 — to power the off-roading-equipped trim.

How the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox and Trax are Different

2019 Chevrolet Equinox and Trax

The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox and Trax are both versatile and stylish two-row SUVs. However, even with all the great features they share, there are a few key differences between the models.

Engine options

The Trax is equipped with the 1.4-liter engine, which reaches 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. The Equinox has three engine options, with the most powerful being the 2.0-liter engine. This engine achieves 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

The Trax gets an impressive EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.* However, the Equinox is even more efficient, with a highway efficiency of 39 mpg.**

Spaciousness

When you fold down the rear row, you can take advantage of 48.4 cubic feet of cargo volume in the Trax. This SUV also offers 92.8 cubic feet of passenger space. Meanwhile, you can have up to 63.9 cubic feet of cargo volume and 103.2 cubic feet of passenger space in the Equinox.

Trailering capabilities

If you’re interested in towing with your SUV, the Equinox is the right choice for you since it can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. The Trax isn’t meant for towing, due to its lower torque and smaller stature.

To discover whether the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox or Trax is right for your family, take the SUVs out for test drives at LaSora Chevrolet Buick.

* EPA-estimated 25 MPG city/31 highway (FWD models).

** EPA-estimated 39 MPG highway for 1.6L Diesel FWD models.

Check Out the 2020 Chevy Equinox Midnight Edition

2020 Chevrolet Equinox Midnight Edition

Back in 2017, Chevrolet offered a blacked-out variant of the Chevrolet Equinox called Midnight Edition. Fans of this package missed it on subsequent models — and Chevy has responded by announcing the return of the Midnight Edition with the 2020 Chevy Equinox Midnight Edition.

So what does this special package include? Black styling cues dominate both inside and out, but the package also introduces several comfort and convenience amenities. Specifically, the black on the exterior is evident through the Mosaic Black Metallic exterior paint job, as well as the 19-inch Gloss Black aluminum alloy wheels, the unique mold-in-color black grille and mesh with black surround, front and rear black badging, and the dark finish fog lamp bezel surround. Inside, the dark theme continues with a Jet Black interior color with perforated leather-appointed seating.

Among other comfort and convenience features are an inside rearview auto-dimming mirror, memory settings for the driver’s seat, and outside heated, power-adjustable, and auto-dimming side-view mirrors.

According to GM Authority, the Midnight Edition will only be offered on 1LT and 2LT trim levels for the 2020 Equinox. Further, these models must already be equipped with the Confidence and Convenience package to be eligible.

You can order your 2020 Chevy Equinox Midnight Edition at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick.

Teen Drivers Benefit from Larger Models

The 2019 Chevy Equinox is perfect for Teen Drivers

If your teen is embarking on that exciting journey of learning how to drive and getting their own vehicle, you’re likely wondering what more you can do to help them stay safe while on the road. One of the simplest answers to this is to get a larger-sized vehicle as your teen’s first car. This advice comes directly from a leading safety researcher for the auto industry, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). They also recommend avoiding a high-horsepower model, which can encourage riskier driving on the road and provide more power than teens are used to.

Larger, bulkier models are generally safer in the event of a crash, and this has been proven time and time again by IIHS crash tests. Vehicles like crossovers, SUVs, and full-size sedans provide more protection than compact sedans as a result of their sheer size. If you’re in the market for a car for your teen, you should consider vehicles like the Chevy Equinox.

Along with looking for a larger model, you should keep an eye out for advanced safety features as well. One perk of GM vehicles is their Teen Driver Technology, which lets you set certain alerts and limits or your teen’s driving and provides an in-vehicle report card to help you keep track of it. When you’re not there, this technology will help you keep tabs on your teen’s driving habits, helping you facilitate the safest ones possible.

For a vehicle that will keep your teen driver safe and provide you with added peace of mind, be sure to visit LaSorsa Chevy Buick and explore our lineup.
