Over the past few decades, SUVs have come to replace sedans, station wagons, and minivans as the vehicle of choice for many families. If you are looking for a large SUV with three rows of seating and a tremendous amount of space inside for everything you need to take with you, then you cannot beat the 2023 Chevy Suburban. For many years now, the Suburban has proven itself time and again as a reliable, spacious SUV that is the perfect option for large families and big groups of friends looking to hit the road. While Chevy offers a wide range of different models in their SUV lineup, the Suburban stands out as its biggest option.
One thing that really makes the Chevy Suburban special among so many other large SUVs out there is that it has three impressive engines for you to choose from. The standard engine is already fantastic, a V8 with 355 hp to really let you get the most from your SUV, but the additional options give you more freedom to get what you want. You can choose from a powerful V8 with 420 hp or an impressive diesel engine that delivers excellent torque and fuel efficiency for you to enjoy. All of these engines come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission that provides you with a responsive and beautifully-tuned driving experience.
Inside the 2023 Chevy Suburban, you will find one of the most spacious and sophisticated interiors anywhere on the road. You get nearly 145 cu.ft. of total cargo volume behind the front row of seats in the Suburban, and it has amazing tech features, including an available 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.2-inch infotainment display. The Suburban is also one of the safest vehicles on the road, thanks to the standard Chevy Safety Assist package on every model that includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, and much more. Perhaps most exciting of all, for the 2023 model year, GM’s innovative Super Cruise hands-free driving technology is now available on the Suburban.
When looking at a large SUV, you always want to consider the engine powering it since so much of your driving experience depends on that engine. If you end up with a weak engine in such a large vehicle, then you will be left with a tepid and underwhelming time behind the wheel. Fortunately, the 2023 Chevy Suburban has three engines for you to choose from, each providing you with an exceptional driving experience. These options include a diesel engine, which is not always easy to find with a great SUV like this.
The standard engine powering the Suburban is a 5.3L V8 that delivers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque to make your driving experience quite enjoyable. If you want more power, then there is an available 6.2L V8 that provides you with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. You can also choose a 3.0L I-6 Turbo Diesel engine that delivers 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. All of this power not only makes it easy to get up to speed when getting onto the highway or to push uphill but also allows the Suburban to haul up to 8,300 lbs of weight behind it with the standard engine.
You might expect a large SUV like the Suburban to have horrible fuel economy, but these impressive engines are surprisingly efficient. EPA estimates show the standard 5.3L V8 delivers an estimated 15 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway and 17 MPG of combined fuel efficiency. The available 6.2L V8 gets an estimated 14 MPG in the city, 20 MPG on the highway, and 16 MPG combined fuel economy. For the most efficient ride possible, however, the 2023 Suburban with its diesel engine gets an estimated 21 MPG in the city, 27 MPG on the highway, and 23 MPG combined for up to 644 miles of range from a full tank.
One of the best parts of choosing a large SUV like the 2023 Chevy Suburban is just how much room you get inside to take advantage of. This is a three-row model with plenty of seating across all three rows, though you do have some options on how you can configure it. For maximum passengers, you can get seating for up to nine people across all three rows. If you are more interested in comfort for your passengers, however, then you can choose a model with seating for seven, which gives you two luxurious front seats, a pair of captain’s chairs in the second row, and a third-row bench seat.
This is one of the most spacious SUVs on the market and a fantastic option for both your passengers and any cargo you need to load up with. For example, up in front, you can get more than 42 inches of headroom, more than 44 inches of legroom, and plenty of space for your shoulders. Your second-row passengers can enjoy nearly 39 inches of headroom and 42 inches of legroom, while people in the third row still get more than 38 inches of headroom and nearly 37 inches of legroom. When it comes time to load up with shopping bags or luggage, you get 41.5 cu.ft. of space in the rear of the Suburban, with nearly 94 cu.ft. of cargo volume behind the second row of seats, and 144.7 cu.ft. of total cargo space behind the front row.
Not only is the 2023 Suburban an incredibly spacious and comfortable model, but it also has some of the most impressive and sophisticated technology available on the road. Most trims for the Suburban feature a 10.2-inch diagonal color infotainment display with Google built-in compatibility and support for Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition to this, you get a 12.3-inch configurable digital instrument cluster on most trims of the Suburban, which makes it easy to keep track of information you need while on the road. Combine these with available options like a 15-inch Head-Up Display, and you have one of the most impressive SUVs available anywhere.
No matter what else you look at when considering a particular vehicle, nothing is as important as the safety features it has. A powerful engine, spacious interior, and luxurious comfort are all meaningless if a vehicle cannot help keep you safe on the road. Fortunately, the 2023 Chevy Suburban is one of the safest models out there, which means you can enjoy everything it has to offer while also knowing that it will help protect you and your loved ones.
In large part, this is due to the fact that every Suburban model comes with the Chevy Safety Assist package standard, regardless of which trim level you choose. This package includes a wide range of advanced safety features such as a Forward Collision Alert to warn you when a crash seems likely and Automatic Emergency Braking to help you avoid or mitigate the impact of a collision. You also get a Lane Keep Assist system with a Lane Departure Warning, which alerts you when you seem to be drifting from your lane and can help you stay in your lane. The Suburban also has a Following Distance Indicator to warn you when you are too close to a vehicle in front of you and Front Pedestrian Braking to help you avoid pedestrians who step in front of you while in a parking lot.
There are a number of available features you can also get on the Suburban, including a Rear Pedestrian Alert and Adaptive Cruise Control, which makes long drives and commutes much more enjoyable. For the 2023 model, the Suburban is now available with Super Cruise on the two highest trims. This is GM’s innovative industry-first driver-assistance technology that lets you go hands-free on compatible roads across the US. If you are ready to experience the future of the auto industry, then you need to feel the freedom of Super Cruise for yourself.
