Chevy’s 2019 Suburban Premier SUV continues to reign supreme among all full-size vehicles in its class.
While many car manufacturers are downsizing their big car and truck fleets, Chevrolet continues to put the pedal to the metal with its big-body cars. Since its inception, Chevy’s full-size Suburban SUV has continued to attract consumers with its massive towing power and capability of hauling nine adults comfortably.
Chevy has managed to maintain its classic Suburban look while offering a few new additions to the classic SUV’s functionality. One added feature is the Rally Sports Truck (RST) Performance Package, which includes an upgraded V8 engine and cutting-edge transmission. The base Suburban model comes with a 5.3-liter V8 engine and 355 horsepower but can be upgraded to an optional 6.2-liter V8 engine with 433 horsepower. Based on its size, this big truck does well on fuel economy, averaging 14 miles per gallon in the city and 20 miles per gallon on the highway.
The Premier’s interior features a few hidden gems that make this SUV more than a work truck. They include:
- Perforated leather seats;
- Heated and ventilated front and rear seats;
- Leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel;
- 10-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system;
- 8-inch color touchscreen voice recognition.
Chevy offers great safety features amenable to the city life. Standard safety features on all Suburban models include rear park assist. The Premier adds front park assist as well as forward-collision alert. GM’s OnStar system is also standard equipment, which includes automatic crash response, emergency services and stolen vehicle assist.
The Chevy Suburban’s standard vehicle price ranges from $51,895 to $69,595. The Premier’s MSRP begins at $68,300. The featured Premier four-wheel drive comes in at $81,770.
