Spacious, comfortable, and rugged.

by SuzDav from syracuse, ny | March 15, 2020

This SUV was perfect for our family. We have 4 children. It is comfortable to drive and ride in and has excellent pick up on the highway and when passing and going uphill. It has the best acceleration out of any Suburban we've owned. This is our 4th Suburban. We love it but need to reduce expenses so we need to sell.

Best Customer Service!

by Erica Kane from Seminole Fl | February 05, 2020

I am writing this review to express my genuine gratitude to John Shawn and his team, besides eager that this review will be useful for potential consumers. I have been a customer for over 12 years owning/leasing more than six Acura vehicles. I have seen numerous changes at this location, including the level of customer service. Through the years it only gets better and better even when you say “how could it possibly get any better” it does. John always seems to go above and beyond my expectations. John and Bart are both genuine good people that take great pride at what they do. They work towards creating and keeping great customer experiences. Now a days it is rare to find people like John and his level of service. Acura should be thrilled to have them on their team. Quick story (truth) I recently purchased a preowned certified vehicle from Acura that happened to be a Chevy Suburban. I recently took the truck to the Chevy dealership for service. This was my first and last time bringing to another dealership. The level of customer service I received was unacceptable from service support up through management. Just one troubled visit reminded me why I continued to stay loyal to Acura and the team. Needless to say my Chevy now ONLY gets serviced with John Shaw and Bart Bartley. A BIG THANK YOU guys for all that you do to keep me a raving fan…Also a BIG THANK YOU to Sophie Morris in the sales department, I have purchased each vehicle through her and wouldn’t want it any other way.

2018 Chevrolet Suburban Overview

Hot-rod sport trucks aren't uncommon, with every major automaker offering a hotter version of their full-size pickup truck for people who want to live the dream of the true Golden Age of muscle cars. With the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe selling fast, Chevy decided that making a hotter version of its big trucks was a good idea, too.
 
Behold the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe RST, which stands for Rally Sport Truck. Both models feature a de-chromed appearance package with bigger wheels, optional performance bits and a special powertrain for the Tahoe (but not the Suburban). The trucks should be arriving at dealerships in the fall of 2017.

Exterior
It's not necessarily a "blacked-out" look for the RST package, as nearly as much of the chrome trim has been replaced by body-colored pieces and gloss-black bits. The RST is an add-on to the LT or Premier trim levels, and it comes with a body-color grille and door handles. Blacked-out trim replaces chrome on the roof rails, window trim, name script and Chevy bow-tie logos. Big 22-inch wheels with Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza performance all-season tires are part of the deal, as well.
 
Interior
Inside, there are surprisingly no changes. All of the sporty look is on the outside -- the interior is as nice as you've specified by choosing either the LT or Premier trim levels, meaning that your wicked-looking, urban street-inspired Tahoe can feature incongruous fake wood trim on the inside.
 
Under the Hood
This is where things get interesting. While the RST itself is an appearance package, it opens the door to some performance options that you can only get on this model. Available on either the Tahoe or Suburban RST are a performance brake package with Brembo six-piston front calipers and larger Duralife rotors for better stopping power. A Borla exhaust is also optional, which provides a 28 percent flow improvement and up to 10 rear-wheel horsepower on the standard 5.3-liter V-8 engine.
 
The Tahoe alone gets something more, however. You can specify a Performance Package that will bring your Chevy's big 6.2-liter V-8 mated to the new 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but four-wheel drive is optional even with the bigger engine. The package also includes Magnetic Ride Control, GM's adaptive suspension, but it's tuned specifically for sportier performance characteristics instead of the standard MRC's comfort skew available on Premier trim trucks.
 
The big V-8 in the Tahoe makes 420 hp and 460 pounds-feet of torque, good to propel the Tahoe from zero-to-60 mph in 5.7 seconds, according to Chevy. It also enables the Tahoe RST to tow 8,400 pounds, giving up nothing in the utility department.
