After the new Silverado, it is time to see new generations of Chevy’s full-size SUVs. Of course, the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban is the first that comes to mind. This is one of the longest-living nameplates in the automotive industry and one of the most iconic SUVs from North America.
The new model is about to come with lots of novelties. There is a new architecture, with plenty of new design solutions. Also, count on a completely new styling and interior design. Finally, there are some novelties to come under the hood, as a new four-cylinder engine should be in the offer.
- Wide engine offer
- Spacious cabin and cargo area
- Long list of standard equipment
- Touch competition
- High price tag
The first thing that comes to mind about the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban is a new platform. We have no doubt that the new model will ride on the same T1 platform that underpins the new Silverado. The new design will provide better efficiency and overall performances.
Also, one of the most interesting additions will be an independent rear suspension. The key rival, Ford Expedition came redesigned recently and features such suspension setup. The Suburban will come the same in this aspect, in order to keep the pace with the current class-leader.
Of course, we also count on a completely new styling. The front end should be very similar to the new Silverado. We also count on new air curtains on the front bumper, which will provide not just interesting look and better aid flow, but also keep brakes cool.
When it comes to the interior design, we count on a completely new layout. The 2020 Chevrolet Suburban is about to come with a slight increase in dimensions, so we expect that the third row will be a little bit more spacious this time.
Of course, we count on a completely new dashboard design, which will come with more attractive lines and new technologies. Speaking of the new technologies, count on a new, third generation of GM’s familiar infotainment system.
One of the most interesting novelties for the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban will be a new engine. So, count on a new 2.7-liter turbo-four engine, which is good for about 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Also, some reports suggest a diesel version of the famous SUV.
That should be a familiar 3.0-liter turbodiesel, which delivers around 280 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. Of course, count on two well-known V8 units in the offer as well. The first one is a 5.3-liter engine with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.
The most powerful version will feature a 6.2-liter unit, which is good for about 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Depending on the engine, the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban will feature either 8- or 10-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Chevrolet Suburban Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2020 Chevrolet Suburban sometime in the third quarter of the year. Base models should go around $52,000.
