Chevrolet Delays All-New Tahoe and Suburban to 2021


If you’ve been waiting for the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban to arrive locally, well, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, General Motors says they’re delaying at least half a dozen models including these two high-profile SUVs.

According to a Reuters report (and confirmed by GM), pre-production work on the Tahoe and the Suburban have been pushed back to the 2021 calendar year. In an email to its suppliers, the carmakers told its parts makers and suppliers to stop work on all tooling and parts manufacturing. However, GM told these suppliers not to dispose of any tooling or materials indicating that the current models will have an extended lifecycle.

It’s expected that the all-new Tahoe and Suburban will be launched by 2022 instead.

These two SUVs aside, development work on the Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, Cadillac XT4, Bolt EV, Chevrolet Silverado, and GMC Sierra have all stopped. Furthermore, work on the Corvette C8 is also delayed as is the Camaro’s supposed refresh.
