The new generation of Chevy’s full-size SUV is here. It received a complete overhaul and comes with loads of novelties and improvements. Along with all kinds of new design solutions and features, it also comes with a new trim level organization. It includes some new trim levels in the offer and one of them will be 2021 Chevy Tahoe RST. The new RST trim will come with lots of exclusive features, which will help it stand out, mostly in terms of aesthetics.
The exact 2021 Chevy Tahoe RST specs are yet to come, but we already know most of the details about the new version. It will come with exclusive features, both outside and on the inside. Still, the overall layout won’t be significantly different compared to the rest of the lineup. Moreover, we will see two familiar engine options in the offer, while the number of tech features won’t be significantly different compared to the lower-grade LT model.
2021 Chevy Tahoe RST Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the exact details about the 2021 Chevy Tahoe RST are yet to come but we already know the main design characteristics. Most of them will be visual nature. One of the first things you’ll definitely notice is an exclusive grille design, which comes in a completely black layout, which makes the SUV look sportier. Among notable exterior details, we should also mention the wheels, which feature not just a unique pattern but also come with impressive 22 inches in diameter. The High Country is the only other trim level that comes with wheels of such size.
The 2021 Chevy Tahoe RST comes blacked all around. We already mentioned the new grille, but the rest of the body comes with loads of blacked details as well. On the other side, the mechanical aspect isn’t any different compared to the rest of the lineup. The recent redesign has brought a new platform, with loads of improvements. Some of the highlights are massive weight savings, independent rear suspension etc.
Unlike the Silverado, Tahoe came with a completely new dashboard design, which includes more attractive aesthetics, finer materials and more tech goodies. Still, the most important thing about the new generation is that the cabin is significantly more spacious. The wheelbase is longer, so there is more room in all rows, especially in the third one, which was pretty tight in the previous more. Furthermore, the independent rear suspension has a great impact not just on ride quality but on cargo space as well, which is now far more generous than before.
In the case of the RST trim level, there are several unique details. One of the things we should mention first are new black seats, which come in a new color combination and stitching. Also, a 4.2-inch information screen on the cluster comest as a part of standard equipment. Other than that, this is essentially the LT model in terms of standard features.
This means you may count on a quite long list of standard equipment. Some of the highlights are goodies like a 10.2-inch touchscreen and the latest infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Furthermore, the list of standard features also includes goodies like forward collision mitigation, a hands-free liftgate, wireless charging, 9-speaker audio system, driver memory settings, auto-dimming mirror etc.

As a mid-range trim level, it comes standard with a well-known 5.3-liter V8, which puts out around 355 horsepower and 383 horsepower. Driving dynamics are good, while the new 10-speed automatic transmission works great.
Those who are looking for something more efficient can opt for a diesel version, which comes with a familiar 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel, which is good for about 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. On the other side, the biggest and most powerful 6.2-liter V8 isn’t available in this model.
