In a market like the Philippines—a setting afflicted with claustrophobic roads and too-close-for-comfort parking spaces—the full-size SUV is an oddity. Practical, big-engined, massive—the segment’s defining traits are words that rarely ever go together to consumers around here.
It’s an oxymoron, save for the chauffeur-driven lot looking for and able to afford a tank that rides plush. If by your luck you fall into this category, Chevrolet Philippines has a proposition for you: the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban.
Both vehicles will be arriving in our market within 2020, so that proposition does mean you’ll forgo immediately buying one of their readily available competitors like the Ford Expedition or even non-American premium SUVs like the Toyota Land Cruiser or the Nissan Patrol. Well, we’re here with a camo-covered Tahoe at the General Motors proving grounds in Milford, Michigan, and by the looks of it, the manufacturer may have done enough to warrant such a wait.
