Overview of the Chevrolet Suburban

Learn about the Chevrolet Suburban

Summary

The Chevrolet Suburban is famous for its spacious interior, and with three-row seating for up to nine and best-in-class cargo space, the reputation is well-deserved. The latest models boast a mighty powerful engine and smooth-shifting transmission. The costs for so much space and power are reduced manoeuvrability in small spaces and a higher price at the pump, but 80+ years of production and popularity show that generations of drivers have been willing to accept those trade-offs. Whether you are carrying a lot of passengers or a lot of cargo (or both) the Suburban has you covered.

Safety

The Suburban has always done well in annual safety ratings. Models from 2008 onward include OnStar, which enable features like Automatic Crash Response (airbags and/or sensors) and access to Emergency Services. Front and side airbags are standard in the most recent models, and side curtain airbags are also available. Other safety features include:

  • Antilock Braking System for controlling the wheel while braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist to keep you away from other cars and in your lane
  • Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Emergency Braking to help you change lanes safely

Interior

For a truck famous for cargo hauling and utility, the Chevrolet Suburban has a surprisingly well-appointed interior, which ranks among the best in its class. Later models and some trim levels offer heated and ventilated power seats in the front and heated seats in the second row. Air conditioning and power windows are standard equipment.

Technology

Rear-view camera and rear parking sensors are standard on all Suburbans from the 2015 edition onward, and an extensive list of optional user-friendly tech features is offered with Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system:

  • 8-inch touchscreen 
  • Six-speaker stereo
  • GPS navigation 
  • Multiple USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity
  • Hands-free voice controls for navigation and media systems
  • Wi-Fi hot spot so passengers can connect to the internet while riding

Older models like the 2008 version featured illuminated driver and passenger vanity mirrors, a standard Tilt-Wheel adjustable steering column, and front and rear air conditioning. 

Space

The Chevrolet Suburban can comfortably seat nine with plenty of headroom and legroom for all. With the second and third rows of seats folded down, it has a staggering 120 cubic feet of cargo space. Large doors make getting in and out easy. Some owners have pointed out that the high cargo floor means more work to load heavy objects, but with this much room for passengers and cargo, it's a minor inconvenience. There are also a wide array of storage options, including large console bins, ample door pockets and a well in front of the cup holders.

Comfort

The Chevrolet Suburban handles very well for a large vehicle, and the overall ride is even and relaxing. All nine seats are ergonomically designed to provide support and comfort. Built on a truck chassis, it's not sporty, but it takes turns smoothly, and the suspension keeps the impact from bumps to a minimum. To make the rear wheels turn at the same time and provide more power on rougher terrain, a locking differential is standard. Whether driving the truck in rear-wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive, you're in for a serene ride.

Frequently asked questions about the Chevrolet Suburban

The Chevy Suburban seats between seven and nine passengers, depending on whether bucket-style or bench seating is selected in the first and second rows.

The Chevrolet Suburban comes with a standard rear-wheel drive (RWD). In newer models, four-wheel drive (4WD) can be added to all trim levels at an extra cost.

The base model of the new Chevrolet Suburban starts at about $60,000, with the higher trim packages adding another $10,000 to $20,000 to the total price.

While both the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban carry up to nine passengers, the Suburban is 20 inches longer, which allows for 10 extra inches of legroom and more cargo space.

As a full-size sport-utility vehicle (SUV) with lots of amenities, expect a previously owned Suburban to cost at least $10,000 (certified and e-tested). Base model new Suburbans start at $60,000.
