Chevrolet finally released the capability and efficiency ratings for the 2021 Tahoe, giving us just a few more reasons to anticipate this model.
The 2021 Tahoe comes standard with a 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management. The engine, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, generates 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with either 2WD or 4WD, the full-size SUV earns an EPA-estimated fuel rating of 16 mpg city, 20 mpg highway, and 18 mpg combined.
If you want a little more power for your 2021 Tahoe, consider the available 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management. When equipped with 2WD, the 2021 Tahoe achieves 15 mpg in the city, 20 mpg on the highway, and 17 mpg combined. Choose 4WD and your Tahoe will earn 14 mpg in the city, 19 mpg on the highway, and 16 mpg combined.* With a total of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, this powertrain also pairs to a 10-speed automatic transmission for a powerful and responsive drive.
We also know that a Duramax® 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel engine will be available at a later date. Though, Chevy has yet to reveal exactly when that will be.
A 2021 Tahoe equipped with 2WD and a 5.3-liter V8 achieves a maximum towing capacity of 7,900 pounds. If your Tahoe has 4WD, you’ll still be able to tow up to 7,700 pounds. Opt for the maximum towing package and the Tahoe capacities increase to 8,400 pounds for 2WD and 8,200 pounds for 4WD, respectively.
