The new 2018 Chevrolet Suburban offers a nine-seating capacity, a high-quality interior, a hush highway ride, a big cargo capacity, a strong V8 power, and a large towing capacity. Its release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2018.
The king size 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is a big family crossover SUV that offers room to spare for its occupants, and a cargo space to stuff anything you’d want for a weekend getaway. With such a massive weight and size, it’s natural that it offers a powerful engine. To this regard it comes with a 5.3L V8 engine rated for a healthy 355 hp. but even with its massive weight, the Suburban still manages to offer solid EPA ratings.
According to Chevy, a fully loaded Suburban should be able to tow about 8,300 lbs. that’s more than you’ll ever need, and surpasses rival crossovers by more than 1,000 lbs. this year’s model also receives a major redesign for its interior and exterior styles. The interior, for example, comes with materials of high quality, and crisp white-on-black gauge graphics.
The graphics are simple and easily interpreted while the information display is intuitive to navigate. The seats, on the other hand, are reasonably supportive and comfortable for most shoppers. The technologies offered include a blind-spot monitor with rear cross traffic alerts, adaptive cruise control, air-conditioning, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and a rearview camera.
Even with so many bells and whistles, there are still plenty other SUVs you can check out in the market. They include the Toyota Sequoia, Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Explorer, and the Lincoln Navigator.
