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.
