The upcoming 2021 Chevrolet Suburban is a brand’s largest SUV. It is a truck-based SUV that will get significant upgrades for 2021. Whatsoever, Chevy will introduce the next-gen Suburban, so significant upgrades are a must. For a start, Suburban will get a new independent rear suspension. Thanks to that, ride quality will be even better.
Moreover, rear passengers will get more legroom, and cargo capacity is increased too. Of course, exterior and interior redesign are happening as well. The new diesel engine will provide improvement in terms of towing capacity, so the new model will be completely changed for 2021.
2021 Suburban Redesign
The next-gen 2021 Chevrolet Suburban will introduce a lot of novelties. The new platform is just a beginning. The T1 architecture underpins models such as Sierra and Silverado. For a start, a new platform will reduce the vehicle’s overall weight. Thanks to that, the new Suburban will be around 300 pounds lighter. Of course, we can count on improvements in ride quality and, generally, better ride characteristics. Suburban will remain a full-size SUV, and it will wear a new design.
We think the 2021 model is the best one so far, especially in terms of aesthetics. If you are looking for more sportiness, Chevy offers the RST trim level that comes with 22-inch wheels and blacked-out exterior trim. Moreover, the Z71 variant provides a more rugged appearance with 20-inch wheels, all-terrain tires, and various off-road equipment.
The interior of the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban is completely new. Compared with the outgoing model, the new Suburban SUV will offer more passenger space and cargo room. The second and third-row occupants will have a couple more inches of legroom, and second-row seats can now slide fore and aft.
As for the cargo capacity, Chevy will provide an additional 23 cubic feet of space, which makes 145 cubic feet overall. The Bowtie will also offer new optional amenities. That includes wireless phone charging, a larger head-up display, and heated/ventilated seats. Suburban is a real family hauler with no shortage in terms of technology. A rear-seat entertainment system is also optional, and it adds two 12.6-inch displays.

The forthcoming 2021 Chevrolet Suburban comes with a pair of V8 engines and a single diesel powertrain option. All three outputs are using the same 10-speed automatic transmission. Moreover, the customers can choose between either rear or all-wheel-drive systems. A 5.3-liter V8 is a standard engine with 355 horsepower.
