The Chevrolet Suburban is a traditional full-size SUV that treats buyers to class-leading passenger space, solid performance, and impressive towing capacity. It should come as no surprise, then, that the Suburban is among the longest-standing domestic vehicles. It’s the only full-size SUV available as both light- (1500) and heavy-duty (2500) models. No matter which model you choose, Suburbans are a solid pick in the used market.

12th Gen Suburban


Overall, the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban SUV is among the most capable vehicles on the road. It attracts aficionados with its strong engine and impressive towing capabilities. A 5.3-liter V8 engine generates 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque – enough heft to tow up to 8,300 pounds. Both rear- and four-wheel drive are available to tailor performance to individual needs.

On the road, the Suburban doesn’t disappoint. The V8 engine is more than powerful, delivering a smooth, refined ride. Even cruising at highway speeds, the Suburban cabin remains as hushed as a luxury vehicle.

Inside, this SUV feels cavernous, giving passengers all the space and support they require for long highway trips. Choose from the latest luxury features, including an upgraded touchscreen interface with smartphone integration.

The new third-row seat is adult-friendly and folds completely into the floor, increasing cargo space in a snap.
