Here’s the upcoming ’21 Chevy Suburban RST (GM only showed the Tahoe RST) completely undisguised on the street, providing a first look at the vehicle.
The Suburban RST adds a “street-inspired” exterior design to the fullsize SUV, featuring a unique front and rear treatment. Meanwhile, other body features that are finished chrome on other ’21 Suburban models are blacked-out on this model. Inside, the Suburban RST is finished off with RST-specific seats, which feature contrast-color stitching.
Standard power comes from the 5.3L V8 engine, which packs 355 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. The RST can also be equipped with the 3.0L I6 turbo-diesel Duramax engine, which has 277 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines will be mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
GM originally planned to launch the ’21 Suburban in mid-2020, though it’s possible that the coronavirus pandemic could end up delaying that timeline.
