We already wrote about the new 2021 Suburban SUV. However, its debut will be delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak. However, the new 2021 Chevy Suburban RST has been spied a few days ago. Pandemic didn’t stop Chevrolet from working on its new models. If everything goes according to plan new Suburban will arrive this summer. The same is for the RST version that should provide a more aggressive appearance.
Unlike the regular model, RST comes with darker front fascia and different trim pieces. The manufacturer perfectly combines dark accents with additional chrome materials. This version is also using a 5.3-liter V8 like the base trim level. On the inside, Suburban and Tahoe RST models will get unique contrast stitching and a larger display.
2021 Suburban RST Spy Shots
The upcoming 2021 Chevy Suburban RST will depart from the rest of the trim levels. Newest spy photos are showing the latest upgrades and we must say the improvements are looking great. For a start, RST departs from other trim levels due to its darker front fascia trim. Chevrolet offers the front part in a Black Ice paint and the mix of chrome and dark parts looks amazing. This SUV will ride on 22-inch V-shaped spokes which are another great addition.
As we already wrote before, new Suburban rides on a new platform. Thanks to that, the arriving model will be 1.3 inches longer and its wheelbase will grow for 4.1 inches. Like Tahoe, Suburban RST comes with multi-link independent rear suspension. This suspension provides a smoother ride and the magnetic ride control system is also in the offer. Lastly, Suburban RST comes with Air Ride Adaptive Suspension for even greater comfort.
Interior Offers the Same Features as the LT Trim Level
In terms of interior design, nothing will change. New 2021 Chevy Suburban RST will most likely remain. The only changes we can expect are a larger 10-inch diagonal infotainment display. When it comes to standard and optional equipment, Suburban RST is the same as the LT trim level. On the other hand, RST looks slightly sportier thanks to the seats with contrast color stitching.
Suburban SUV continues to offer room for seven, eight or nine passengers. Comfort is at the admirable level and as we said, the ride is smooth so the cabin feels quite and comfy. This large SUV also offers the same 121.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity.
