2015 Chevrolet Suburban Price Up as Much as $3,440, Tahoe Price Also Up

By | December 18, 2013
General Motors is bumping prices on the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban and 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe models, according to a report obtained from dealer ordering guides. According to Automotive News, ordering guides are now in the hands of dealers, who now have access to full pricing information for different trim levels of both trucks. According to the guides, the base 2015 Chevrolet Suburban price jumps $1,000 for a total of $48,295. The four-wheel drive LT version has jumped $3,440 to $56,995. The cream-of-the-crop LTZ trim level is up $3,330 for a total price of $65,595. Prices for the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe are also significantly higher than last year's model. The base Tahoe, now priced at $45,595, has increased $1,000 like the Suburban. The LT and LTZ trim levels are up more than $2,500 each for the Tahoe. Buyers can get the four-wheel drive LT for $53,995 while the LTZ is priced at $62,995. Official comment from General Motors is that the company isn't yet ready to release official pricing, even though it already indirectly has.
But the big question is: Do the new features on the redesigned Suburban and Tahoe justify the price bump? We will have to wait and see. But we do know that the new trucks receive more powerful engines as well as lighter bodies thanks to aluminum and high-strength steel. Buyers will also notice a quieter cabin, upgraded upholstery, more second-row legroom, and fold-flat seats. As options, the trucks will offer next-generation MyLink connectivity with an eight-inch touchscreen, and the Suburban tacks on an available rear-seat DVD entertainment system with two screens. Right now, consumers can snag hefty $2,500 or $3,000 rebates on the 2014 model year trucks, so that may be a huge point in favor of purchasing the old version. But those considering the older generation trucks should keep in mind that they are purchasing a vehicle that hasn't been redesigned in eight years.
