2000-06 Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe identification key

Since the year range on these is so broad, here's an identification key:

2000-01: Introduction. These models are distinguished by the OnStar antenna on the rear glass (optional on LS, standard on LT)

2002: The OnStar antenna is moved onto the roof to the driver's side. On the Suburban, the weight designation on the doors is deleted.

2003: XM Satellite becomes available. Models with it have an antenna on the passenger side. The c-pillar badge is also deleted on the LS Tahoe and Suburban this year. Inside, the Chevies get a new multifunctional steering wheel and dashboard, as well as a very pointless change: the window control buttons are now recessed in black instead of the interior color.

2004: Name designation deleted on the Tahoe. New wheels for both LS (plastic trim) and LT (body colored trim) The previous unisonal saw blade wheels are replaced by two different star-shaped alloys.

2005: New lower valance, affectionately referred as the 'goatee' by me.

2006: The Suburban/Tahoe along with all GM trucks receives the OnStar/XM Satellite sharkfin antenna. This may be confused with some lower equipped 2002-2004 models that only have an OnStar antenna, but these can be identified by the lack of the goatee.
On the Chevrolet models the brand name is deleted this year, GMC models retain it.

@Gamer. I suppose GMC Yukon & Yukon XL follow the same traits?

No, that's the tricky part. For Yukons, it always differs depending on the trim and year.

2002 is the first year for factory wheel flares on Tahoe. * Let me amend that statement. 2002 is the first year for fender flares on LS and LT trim levels. The Z71 model had fender flares as standard equipment from its introduction in 2001.

The 2003 steering wheel and interior upgrade also pertains to the GMCs. The Escalade also got a similar new steering wheel for 2003, the only difference being the wood trim. The Chevy and GMC also get new tweeter speakers on the a-pillars for 2003, the Escalade had them for 2002.

There was also a change to the CHMSL area for 2006, although I've seen the newer trim piece on older vehicles. I believe it was introduced to resolve a problem with the CHMSL (possibly leaking?), but I can't find much on it. This was applicable to both the Tahoe/Suburban and Yukon/Yukon XL. The Escalades CHMSL remained the same for 2006.
