Chevrolet’s Tahoe and Suburban of the 2022 model year will go into production on October 4, 2021, at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
Both vehicles underwent a comprehensive redesign for 2021. For the 2022 model year, they got minor updates – new colors, slight changes within trim levels.
The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, which are essentially the same vehicle and just differ in wheelbase length, are popular in America.
