2023 Chevy Suburban

January 30th, 2023 by

Ready to check out the 2023 Chevy Suburban? This full-size SUV is as rugged as it is stylish, giving your family the means to make plenty of memories. Let’s look closer at the latest Suburban model year.

What’s new for the 2023 Chevy Suburban?


There are a few exciting new developments for the Suburban. For starters, the top-trim High Country now comes standard with adaptive cruise control. This cruise control technology monitors traffic flow, and it can adjust your speed to keep you a safe distance from the vehicle up ahead.

Even more exciting is the new Super Cruise system. Available for the Premier or High Country trim models, Super Cruise is the only truly hands-free driving system available right now. It works on pre-mapped divided highways across North America.

Who needs a 2023 Chevy Suburban?


As a three-row, truck-based SUV, the Chevy Suburban appeals to big families who like to get off the beaten track. Compared to the Tahoe, Chevy’s other full-size SUV, the Suburban adds 15 inches in length, and that means 16 additional cubic feet of cargo space (for a total of 41.5 cubes behind the rear seats).

And this SUV is an absolute powerhouse, with three muscular engine options. Among them is a turbo-diesel engine that allows you to combine your adventure with impressive fuel efficiency. And its big V8 engines offer very impressive towing capabilities, making the Suburban an excellent option for families with oversized toys. Although this three-row SUV is big, it never feels unwieldy. Thanks to its easy going handling and responsive steering, the Suburban is surprisingly agile.

How much can a 2023 Chevy Suburban tow?


This three-row SUV can tow a very big boat, thanks to its max tow rating of 8,300 pounds! You can achieve this figure with the Max Trailering package and the base 5.3-liter V8 engine. Four-wheel-drive models with the turbo-diesel engine have the lowest tow ratings, but they’re still pretty capable, maxing out at 7,800 pounds.

There are three engines available for your new Suburban, all of which deliver the kind of strong, smooth performance you expect to find in this segment. A 10-speed automatic transmission is quick to send power to the rear wheels, or all four wheels if you select four-wheel drive.

Here’s a quick look at the 2023 Suburban powertrain options, which vary by trim model:

  • Standard 5.3-liter V8 engine (355 horsepower, 383 lb-ft of torque)
  • Optional for RST, Z71, Premier: 6.2L V8 (420 hp, 460 lb-ft)
  • Optional for all but Z71: Turbocharged 3.0L inline six-cylinder diesel engine (277 hp, 460 lb-ft)
  • 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive
  • Optional four-wheel drive

How much gas mileage does the 2023 Chevy Suburban get?

This big SUV is thriftier than you might expect! With rear-wheel drive, the turbo-diesel engine provides the most mileage, earning up to 23 mpg combined (21 city/27 highway). With the base 5.3-liter V8 engine and rear-wheel drive, those figures slip to 17 mpg combined (15/20 mpg).
