2021 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe Takes Infotainment to the Next Level
The 2021 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe took infotainment beyond just screen sizes, and integrated features that match drivers’ lifestyles while driving.
Up to now, improvements in vehicle infotainment focused more on hardware than functionality.
Chevrolets’ new infotainment upgrades in the 2021 Suburban and Tahoe takes the next step into much improved functionality.
Yes, both models provide a bigger physical screen size for both front and rear passengers. Drivers have been rewarded with a 10-inch-diagonal color touchscreen standard in all models. Various trim levels provide for a total of 5 configurable screens.
Premium trim levels will come with an 8-inch-diagonal configurable color instrument and information cluster. Other models will have 4.2-inch-diagonal color driver information center.
In addition, a 15-inch diagonal Head-Up Display, with a 3 x 7-inch color display included with premium trim packages.
Designers didn’t forget about passengers. An available rear-seat media package includes dual 12.6-inch-diagonal LCD touchscreens. Each rear screen offers independent connections, so passengers can watch different content on each side.
Additionally, rear passengers can share content from one screen to the other, mirror content from an Android phone to a screen and “send” navigation points of interest, like restaurant suggestions or pit stop locations, to the central infotainment screen up front.
The front infotainment touchscreen can be used to control what passengers are able to view on rear-seat touchscreens.
One of the most impressive features is the ability to connect to the system via USB or HDMI. The ability to connect with these technologies turns these full-size SUVs into mobile offices.
The new Tahoe and Suburban also feature a built-in Wi-Fi® Hotspot with available 4G LTE data, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto capability, multiple USB charging ports, and wireless charging with charger cooling.
All that new technology will be enabled by an all-new digital vehicle platform.
This next-generation system has five times more data-processing power than systems in current models. The platform not only drives the new technologies, but is designed to support vehicle health monitoring and the ability for over-the-air updates – with ample bandwidth to add future technologies not yet offered.
