by JL91Cadillac from Middlefield, Ohio | April 12, 2020

I have owned this 2018 for over a year. Purchased pre-owned with 11,000 miles on it GM Certified Pre-Owned. I owned a fully loaded 2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV I bought brand new, that I traded in, and the Chevrolet Suburban Premier is so much nicer. It has so many more options, is so much quieter and rides so smoothly. It is easier to drive than the Escalade ESV was and feels more solid and stable on the road. Fuel economy is awesome, I average over 18.5 MPG combined rural and city driving. I am so glad I elected to trade in the 2007 Escalade ESV on this Suburban. Planning on keeping it for a long time, is such a pleasure to drive!

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.

It's not necessarily a "blacked-out" look for the RST package, as nearly as much of the chrome trim has been replaced by body-colored pieces and gloss-black bits.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.
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.
