Chevrolet Suburban Overview

This extended-length version of the Tahoe is a bit of a dinosaur but not unfriendly. It can tow a heavy trailer and swallow more cargo than most minivans. Interior quality is very good, and there is room for up to nine, but typical versions seat seven. The cabin is quiet, but the low third-row seat is uncomfortable and, inconveniently, doesn't fold into the floor. Steering is vague, and handling is cumbersome. The standard 5.3-liter V8 is merely adequate and returned 14 mpg overall. Four-wheel-drive models have a selectable full-time system. Reliability has been average. A redesign with a more efficient powertrain, and more new safety features, is due in early 2014.
