Since the all-new Suburban model was delivered in 2015th when it received redesign together with its Tahoe sibling we know that the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban version will come with pretty much all the same features and no noticeable upgrades. Changes that it received with new generation will allow it to stay on top of the segment and since we do know that there will be no major shifts we can already talk about 2016th model and deliver review of it.
With new generation of large SUV’s from Chevrolet and GMC we have received a lot of upgrades. For example, new design brings better aerodynamics that improves performances, fuel economy but also offers quieter ride. When on this we add the fact that engine lineup of EcoTec3 units come with increased fuel efficiency thankfully to improved direct injection system and few other optimizations we know that it will be much better in all segments.
It is most impressive that this is the 12th generation of Suburban and that it is 80th anniversary, for 2015th model, this is quite incredible. When it comes to the exterior design we are getting much better segments, it does not offer any similarities with pickups like it was the case with previous generations. It is more refined and everything has been implemented with much more care. To further reduce weight allowing this car to achieve better fuel economy and performances we have aluminum hood and lift gate.
Review Of 2016 Chevrolet Suburban
Well known and easily recognizable dual port grille from Chevrolet is also offered here and the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban front segment is quite rich with chrome accents. Projector beam headlights are nicely integrated and flank the grille while the LED daytime running lights are offered on the higher trim LTZ model. This is still one large SUV that is quite tough but the changes made it much more modern and pleasant to the eye. Both side and back segment have been modified to offer nicer lines and curves.
For Chevrolet to offer further improvements this generation has received a lot changes in interior. First of all, everything has been pushed to the next level, higher quality of materials, better implementation and functionality. Seats offer better support and it will not cause any fatigue even during longer rides while the infotainment system will be enough for most drivers and passengers. Center console is dominated with eight inch color touch screen that delivers controls for all the most important functions. With decent number of compartments you can be sure that you can safely store all your belongings.
Only engine available for the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban is the 5.3 liter V8 unit that offers great amount of power and is quite capable when you need it for towing. Technologies like direct injection, continuously variable valve timing, cylinder deactivation and advanced combustion system allows it to offer great performances but with lower fuel consumption. This powerplant pumps out 355 hp which is good when looking at the size of this SUV so you can expect it to be quite good even when you are transporting nine passengers.
