The 2021 Chevy Tahoe Is Perfect for Winter Gear

If you’re a winter sports enthusiast in the market for a full-size SUV, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe might be exactly what you’re looking for. This three-row SUV shares a platform with the Silverado 1500 and the Suburban. The Tahoe offers a comfortable ride and more than enough space to stow your luggage, skis, and snowboards.

With more than enough space to move up to eight people and all their gear, the new Chevy Tahoe is ideal for those into winter activities or who live in areas that see a lot of snow, U.S. News reports. Here’s what the new Chevy Tahoe can offer you.

The new Chevy Tahoe is spacious

The 2021 Chevy Tahoe has room for up to eight people in three rows, and it’s roomy. The interior is super-comfortable and offers plenty of space for passengers and their coats, jackets, and gear.

The cabin is larger than that of any previous model. You have an additional ten inches of legroom in the rear row. The second row conveniently slides back and forth for great versatility. And the best part? Adults can comfortably sit anywhere in this SUV.

The packaging inside is improved with a flat, low load floor and a new independent rear suspension. If you put the second and third row of seats down, you get 123 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s 28 more cubic feet than in the previous model.

If you enjoy winter sports or live in an area that sees snow several times a year, it’s hard to beat the new Tahoe. The remote start allows you to warm up the vehicle from inside your home. If you want a heated steering wheel, heated seats, or leather upholstery, they’re all available. 

And whether there are several inches of ice packed on pavement or a full-on snowstorm, the Tahoe can navigate it, Trucks.com explains. This SUV is competent on roads less traveled, including mud and all manner of outdoor terrain.

It also boasts great safety features, including automatic high beams, forward collision control, and lane-keep assist. Those are all highly useful in cold climates.

It offers plenty of features

There’s a lot to like about the 2021 Chevy Tahoe. Many reviewers and industry experts think this model is the best Tahoe yet. It’s larger, 6.7 inches longer, and can haul and tow like a full-sized truck. The wheelbase is 4.9 inches longer, taking it from 116 inches in 2020 to 120.9 in 2021.

The exterior saw a touch-up as well. It boasts a new grille and headlights, updated sheet metal, and a newly redesigned cabin. Given the outer updates and refreshed content, Edmunds considers the 2021 Tahoe a shorter version of the new Chevy Suburban.

The extra space is thanks in part to the independent rear suspension’s introduction, which also remedies some issues from earlier versions, such as ride quality and handling.

The Tahoe’s engines got an update as well. In 2021, its standard engine is a 5.3-liter V8, with an available 6.2-liter V8 in High Country models. Both engines offer a cylinder deactivation feature for better gas mileage. There’s also a new 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel inline-six.

The transmission is a 10-speed automatic. And the diesel engine, which is also used in the Silverado, has proven to be relatively fuel-efficient. Edmunds finds the base engine highly capable and quick to respond. 

Overall, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe is comfortable and roomy enough for plenty of people and winter gear. It boasts a solid selection of engines and can handle icy and snowy conditions well. Throw in a wealth of driver-assist features and plenty of infotainment and tech, and the 2021 Chevy Tahoe is ideal for winter activity enthusiasts, large families, and anyone living in snowy climes.
