2017 Chevrolet Suburban Exterior

2017 Chevrolet Suburban Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Seats up to 9 passengers
  • Front- and four-wheel drive options
  • Maximum 121.1 cubic feet of cargo room
The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban is a full-size SUV that seats up to nine passengers across three rows. It competes with the Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

It is offered in three trim levels: LS, LT, and LTZ.

The biggest difference between the Tahoe and Suburban is overall size, with the longer Suburban offering more interior room for passengers and more cargo space as well. The new Suburban’s styling is boxier and less rounded than the previous version, with high side walls that are more vertical and don’t round off at the top, giving the large SUV an imposing stance to match its impressive size. Heated side mirrors and 18-inch wheels are standard, with larger wheels, a power liftgate, and fog lamps optional.

Under the hood, the Suburban gets one of GM’s new EcoTec3 engines, a 355-hp, 5.3-liter V-8 that features direct injection and cylinder deactivation, which improves fuel economy. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive (FWD) Suburbans can tow up to 8,300 pounds, while four-wheel drive (4WD) models top out at 8,000 pounds. Electric power steering has also finally made it to the Suburban, which further increases efficiency.

Inside, the Suburban has a premium cloth interior with front bucket seats, a 60/40 split-folding second-row seat, and a split-folding third-row bench seat. The front-row seats can be replaced by a front bench seat for 3 people. The second-row split-folding seat can be swapped out for a pair of captain’s chairs. Cargo room tops out at 121.1 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded down (power folding is available as an option). Standard interior features include HD radio, Bluetooth connectivity, a leather wrapped steering wheel, remote keyless entry, and remote vehicle start. Also available are MyLink connectivity, up to six USB ports to charge devices, push-button start, and a Blu-ray rear entertainment system with two screens.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes, electronic stability control, traction control, and thankfully a rearview camera and rear parking sensors, almost a must on a vehicle of this size. Much like the interior, available safety technology has taken a leap as well with forward collision alerts, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alerts, and adaptive cruise control all optional.
