The base price of the redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban SUVs will climb $1,000 over their 2014 model year predecessors, according to an ordering guide sent out to the General Motors division’s dealers earlier this week.
That means that a no-option 2015 Tahoe will sticker from $45,595 including destination, while a similar Suburban will list from $48,295, according to industry journal Automotive News.
Both trucks have been essentially redesigned from the ground up for 2015. The new models will hit the market during the first half of 2014.
While that $1,000 price increase is one thing, perhaps the bigger news is the heftier sum buyers will have to pay if they want to buy a more well-optioned model.
Stepping up to a four-wheel-drive Tahoe LT will cost buyers $53,995, or about $2,500 more than in 2014. The range-topping LTZ with four-wheel-drive will list from $62,995 – $2,640 above last year’s figure.
The story is much the same on the 2015 Suburban. The high-volume LT 4×4 increases $3,440 to $56,995, while the loaded LTZ 4×4 is up $3,300 to $65,595.
GM hasn’t detailed standard and optional equipment for the new SUVs, but that information should be released closer to their on-sale date. At about that same time, GM is likely to formally reveal pricing for the SUVs. Pricing for the nearly identical GMC Yukon and Yukon XL will likely be announced about the same time.
