Driving Impression

Chevrolet chassis engineers did a great job on the suspension tuning; handling is impressively quick for a three-ton bus.

For the 2015 redesign, they worked on increasing roll stiffness, so the Suburban leans less in corners. A vehicle this shape wants to lean, as mass will always have its say in the dynamic equation, but engineers found the right spring rates and antiroll bar thickness to limit body roll (lean) and enable rapid transitions. It helps that the weight distribution is close to 50/50.

The electric assist power rack and pinion steering is numb and relatively slow at 3.4 turns lock to lock. But even so, the Suburban is agile by big SUV standards, which gives the driver a better chance of staying out of trouble.

The ride is on the firm side, with spring rates needed to handle big loads, but they still keep away all but the sharpest bumps.

Braking is another strong suit. The brake pedal feel is firm, it’s easy to modulate pedal pressure, and the Suburban stops straight and true. We can’t testify to fade resistance, other than to say we failed to provoke any fade with a few hard stops. That might be different towing a load, but that’s what trailer brakes are for.

Walk Around

The Chevy Suburban is unmistakable, a big two-box SUV, the traditional ‘Burb. Yet the angular aesthetics are aerodynamic. And there is some distinction, in a character line that runs the length of the body just below the greenhouse.

It looks better on its optional huge wheels, 20- and 22-inchers, than the standard ones, which are 18 inches. It’s all about proportion. The 18-inch wheels with taller sidewalls on the tires should offer a softer, quieter ride, however.

Interior Overview

The upscale cabin of the Suburban is beautifully quiet. You can only hear the engine when you floor it, and then it’s a pleasant baritone that sounds almost distant.

The curved console counterpoints the angular exterior, but it doesn’t feel like a contrast because it’s so removed (as in distant) from the outside. The Yukon offers a nice head-up display that’s not available for the Suburban.

It’s hard to find fault with the standard cloth upholstery. Leather is available, but it’s not as rich as the that in the GMC Yukon Denali. GMC goes deeper into luxury with the Denali.

Seating is flexible, with an optional front bench seat making it a nine-passenger, or optional captain’s chairs in the second row, making it seven. The standard second row and third row fold flat manually, and with power optionally. Despite all that length, 224 inches, adult legroom for the third row is still limited. Choosing the seating configuration is one of the most important considerations when choosing a Suburban. Keep in mind that captain’s chairs with a center console breaks up cargo space when the seats are folded down.

Throughout the cabin there’s useful space for small things, a bunch of cupholders, and a center console that can hold a tablet or notebook computer.

Summary

Smooth, exceptionally quiet, comfortable, capable, and powerful, the latest Suburban remains the big cahuna of family haulers. It makes the most sense as a tow vehicle. As a truck, it will stand up better to rough use than will a crossover SUV.

Bucket-seat models include a front center air bag that deploys from the inboard side of the driver’s seat and inflates between driver and front passenger for added protection in a side-impact crash.
