2019 Chevy Suburban
The Suburban is part of America’s best-selling family in the full-size SUVs department. It gives SUV versatility, truck utility, and the refinements it’s expected in a luxury car. There should be no surprise that along with all the family and cargo room it offers, it also delivers powerful efficiency with the V8 fuel economy which produces 22 MPG on the highway. The Suburban is ready for every adventure you want to take it on.
Avail. Engine Type
The 2019 Suburban has a 5.3-liter V8 engine, produces 355 horsepower, and it’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. On higher trims, like the Premier trim, you can get a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine, and it comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Both transmissions produce plenty of power and deliver strong acceleration despite the vehicle being so large. All it means is when you’re ready to ride you have to step on the gas pedal to tap into the acceleration.
The Suburban can tow up to 8,300 pounds when it’s properly equipped. It has an EPA-estimation of 15 mpg in the city, and 22 mpg on the highway, the vehicle’s fuel efficiency is about average among large SUVs. The four-wheel-drive models have 14 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.
Handling and Braking
The Suburban SUV open-road performance offers a joyous ride, thanks to a suspension that soaks up the road flaws nicely. Steering is sharp, and the body roll is minimal around turns. If purchasing a model with Magnetic Ride Control, it can boosts handling ability and ride comfort a lot more. Four-wheel-drive is optional while the rear-wheel drive is standard.
If the 220-inch-long Suburban seems a bit excessive for your needs, the Chevy offers the smaller Tahoe on the same platform, with mostly the same looks and equipment. If the gold bowtie upfront doesn’t suit your interest, customers could also opt for the GMC Yukon XL. The SUV has a presence that is decidedly commanding with it’s long flowing lines which emphasize the Suburban’s considerable length instead of hiding it.
