The New 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is Bigger and Better than Ever
Chevrolet had two words in mind in regards to its massive and impressive 2015 Suburban SUV: bigger and better. The expansive, 10-foot-long vehicle was refreshed for its 80th year on the market, with more engine power, best-in-class fuel economy, more features, a surprisingly quiet interior, and more comfortable—and, of course, larger—seats. Too, the 2015 Suburban was restyled with a decidedly formal look.
But some things remain the same: for example, the SUV’s rugged truck-based platform, making the new 2015 Chevrolet Suburban stand out among today’s three-row vehicles. It also is among the few SUVs to still offer up to nine seats. The Suburban is a capable, if sizable, off-road vehicle, though drivers who stay on paved paths might be unaware because the Suburban’s ride is better controlled than ever, at least on the top LTZ model. That is in part because the LTZ comes with the latest version of magnetic ride control as part of the suspension.
And, too, if boredom on those long road trips is your worst nightmare, the 2015 Suburban’s got you covered: There are up to six power outlets, six USB ports, and a rear entertainment center with two sizable screens; plus, it can become a Wi-Fi hotspot (although data usage rates will apply).
The 2015 Suburban’s nearly 11-foot-long wheelbase provides for wide doorways, particularly for the second-row doors, and standard “assist steps”—basically a long running board on each side—will certainly ease entry into the virtually tall SUV. And, because of the high seat position, everyone has a good view.
The front seats in the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban have a segment-leading 45.3 inches of legroom, and second-row seats have nearly 40 inches of legroom (which is virtually unheard of in other SUVs). Even the Suburban’s third row can be comfortable for smaller-statured adults, and, too, there is more headroom in the third row—38.5 inches—than ever before. Even so, the front seats have ample cushions and provide good support on long drives, and the center console between the front seats was large enough to hold a laptop!
All Suburban models come with the newly invigorated, 5.3-liter, overhead valve V8 that is direct-injected to produce 355 horsepower and 383 foot-pounds of torque at 4,100 rpm. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. All in all, the base price for the 2015, rear-wheel drive, Suburban LS runs in the ballpark of $49,000 while the four wheel drive 2015 Suburban LS will run around $52,000.
