The Suburban measures 18.7 feet long, and is available in rear-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive configurations. Unlike most modern vehicles, even SUVs, the Suburban still uses a solid rear axle.
Helping to enhance ride quality in this LTZ-trim Suburban is GM's Magnetic Ride Control technology.
Chevy fits the Suburban with its Safety Alert Seat, a driver's seat that buzzes the thigh areas to warn of traffic in blind spots or lane departure.
The middle-row seats fold forward to allow access to the third row.
With all the seats down, the Suburban offers ample cargo space.
The Chevy MyLink 8-inch touchscreen hosts screens for navigation, stereo, and the hands-free phone system.
Chevy fits a profusion of gauges onto the instrument cluster.
Switching four-wheel-drive modes is as easy as turning a dial.
