New Performance Features for Chevy Suburban with RST Performance Package

The Performance Package is available as an upgrade to the Tahoe

A lot of the available large three-row SUVs aren’t typically sought after for performance, but the new RST Performance Package that’s available on the Chevy Suburban is definitely that.

A lot of consumers don’t necessarily think of performance when they think of large passenger vehicles like the Chevy Suburban, but that’s not true of the Chevy Suburban when it is equipped with the new RST Performance Package.

The new RST Performance Package features a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The package also features Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration. The addition of the new RST Performance Package comes after the success of the RST Performance was added to the Chevy Tahoe.

“The RST Performance Package made its debut on the Tahoe RST last spring, and the response from our customers was overwhelmingly positive,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevy Trucks Marketing and Advertising. “In fact, Tahoe RST with the Performance Package is the fastest-turning Tahoe model, and we’ve received customer requests to offer the same performance and power to Suburban RST. Delivering on those requests with the Suburban RST Performance Package is another example of how Chevrolet has continually invested in the segment, developing models with combinations of capability, technology and performance to meet the needs of different customers.”

Not only does the Chevy Suburban with the RST Performance Package offer a boost in power, but it’s still just as spacious and convenient as the Suburban always is. The Suburban is a great vehicle for families, tailgating, sports events and anyone who regularly needs a big vehicle to transport things. The Suburban offers spacious seating for up to seven or eight passengers depending on the seating configuration and the seats can all be easily folded down to make room for cargo when necessary.
