2021 Chevy Suburban
The exciting new 2021 Chevy Suburban leaves no stone unturned in the quest for the largest, most powerful full-size SUV that simply won’t compromise on luxury. The Suburban nameplate has long been considered the perfect mix of brawn and style, and the 2021 Suburban continues this tradition with several important upgrades and changes. Before we review the newest features, let’s review some numbers.
With all its bulk, the 2021 Suburban still delivers a respectable 16 MPG city/20 MPG highway. Cargo capacity comes in at a maximum of 144.7 cubic feet. Passenger comfort is a priority, with the Suburban offering best-in-class second-row legroom and an expanded third row, which utilizes more legroom and a higher chair height to keep those far back passengers more comfortable.
Powertrain and towing capacity are impressive too, and Chevy comes through with three different engines: the 5.3-liter Ecotec3 V8—standard on the LS, LT, RST, Z71, and Premier trims—which provides 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque; the 6.2-liter Ecotec3 V8, with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, standard on the High Country trim line; and the Duramax 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine which comes in at 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, available as an option on the LS, LT, RST, Premier and High Country trims.
Attention to safety is another aspect of the 2021 Chevy Suburban that doesn’t disappoint. With standard features such as automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, which includes a tailgating alert, and front pedestrian braking, which works at speeds under 50 MPH, the Suburban’s driver assist safety technology will enhance driver and passenger safety and security while on the road.
The 2021 Suburban is offered in six different trims, which include the base LS that starts at $56,500, the LT, Z71, RST, Premier, and the top-end High Country, which comes in at a starting MSRP of $72,300.
