2015 Chevrolet Suburban Review
The newly redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is a traditional full-size SUV that's ready for anything. Its alpha design means drivers have plenty of room for passengers and substantial power for hauling heavy loads. Moreover, it's modern. Drivers can count on a fuel-efficient V8, tech-friendly features, and modern safety standards.
There's a lot to love about the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Suburban. With the right configuration, this sprawling SUV seats up to nine passengers. Even with every seat occupied, it offers an impressive 38.9 cubic feet of cargo space. A wide range of acoustic laminations creates an incredible quiet cabin. Passengers can kick back in the luxury of a newly redesigned high-quality interior. The Suburban's new V8 engine is both ideal for hauling heavy loads and fuel-efficient.
The 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is a top choice for heavy-duty drivers. Its 5.3-liter V8 has been newly tweaked for best-in-class fuel efficiency but still generates an impressive 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. All Suburbans leave the lot ready for towing, with a 2-inch receiver, and can be outfitted for maximum capabilities with the addition of Chevrolet's optional Max Trailering package. Drivers can choose from two- and four-wheel drive models to maximize the Suburban's do-anything nature.
Chevrolet Suburban models range from the luxurious LS to the upscale, refined LTZ. The standard LS is stocked with safety features - like OnStar emergency communications, antilock brakes, and traction and stability control - and enough connectivity options to please the most modern driver. Gadget lovers can plug-and-play using the auxiliary audio jack, two USB ports, or SD card slot. The LS offers Bluetooth connectivity and Smartphone integration so that drivers can make hands-free calls and access a variety of apps.
The middle grade Chevrolet Suburban LT includes the Driver Alert package - an option for the LS - with added high-tech safety features that offer added protection in troublesome traffic. It includes items like the vibrating safety alert seat and lane-departure warning system, helping drivers stay aware of even difficult-to-see dangers. The LT also comes standard with a blind-spot monitoring system - very handy for a vehicle of this size - and rear cross-traffic alerts.
The Chevrolet Suburban LT is equipped with plenty of power features. A standard powerlift gate simplifies the process of loading and unloading cargo. Its power tilt-and-telescoping heated steering wheel can be positioned just right for drivers of any height. All seats are power-operated and heated, which means that creating extra cargo space is a snap and cozy comfort is always at hand. The LT infotainment options are also more numerous - drivers can access an additional three USB ports and the 8-inch MyLink touchscreen interface, featuring text-to-voice capability for MAP-enabled Smartphones and Siri Eyes Free for iPhones.
Inside, the redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Suburban makes high-quality materials a priority. Both the LS 4-inch and the LT/LTZ 8-inch infotainment touchscreens display sharp, clear graphics. White-on-black gauge clusters are always easy to read. The front-row seating options are comfortable and supportive. Both the second- and third-row seats are roomy and have impressive legroom. The Suburban's 38.9 cubic feet of cargo space increases to 76.7 and 121.1 cubes with the third- and second-row seats respectively folded into the floor.
When it's time to hit the road, the Chevrolet Suburban's standard V8 is an asset. Its combined fuel efficiency and strength help to make this SUV the best utility option available. In addition to a smooth, refined ride, the Suburban's quiet cabin offers a luxury car-like experience, especially at top speeds. It's secure around turns and manages bumps in the road with ease.
The top-trim Chevrolet Suburban LTZ treats driver and passengers both to added style and comfort with the Luxury Package. Outside, xenon headlights establish greater visibility and style. Heated and ventilated front seats mean that comfort is never far off, and additional lumbar support creates higher levels of luxury during long trips. The multitude of infotainment options is even more enjoyable via a premium 10-speaker Bose surround sound system.
The 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is the ultimate do-it-all utility vehicle. Big families can't do better than its spacious seating. Thanks to impressive towing capabilities, adventurous drivers can hitch and haul their favorite heavyweight toys. The Suburban's all-new V8 engine is at once powerful and fuel-efficient.
