Los Angeles, CA
In Stock


The Chevy Suburban initially comes as the new model of Luxury SUV . Now in its 12th generation, this behemoth full-size, body-on-frame SUV continues to offer three rows, seating for up to eight passengers, and towing capacity aplenty. An abridged version of the 'Burban, the slightly shorter Tahoe, is reviewed separately. A 355-hp V-8 is standard, while an optional 277-hp inline-six turbodiesel and a 420-hp gas V-8 are available. All engines are lashed to a telepathic 10-speed automatic transmission and can be equipped with either rear- or four-wheel-drive—except for the four-wheel-drive-only off-road-focused Z71 trim. Suburban cargo space is massive, with a 20 cubic foot over the Jeep Wagoneer advantage with their third rows folded. An available air suspension allows the Suburban to comfortably roll with the pavement's punches. The interior styling and materials are ho-hum, but at least the 10.2-inch touchscreen handles climate and navigation with speed and clarity.

The Suburban is most efficient when equipped with the available diesel engine, with ratings of 21 mpg city and 27 highway for the rear-drive version. The standard 5.3-liter V-8 is estimated at 15 mpg in the city, one mile per gallon less thirsty than the optional 6.2-liter V-8, but both engines are rated at 20 mpg on the highway. Once we test a Suburban on our 75-mph highway route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, we can evaluate its real-world mpg. We did test a Tahoe—the 'Burban's smaller sister—fitted with the diesel-six on our highway route and it returned 27 mpg, which confirms its superior efficiency over the gas engines. We wouldn't expect a Suburban with this engine to turn in a significantly worse result as the EPA rates the Tahoe diesel only one mile per gallon better on the highway.
