2021 Chevrolet Suburban Ratings & Reliability
With its 2021 redesign the Suburban has shed some of its Silverado pickup truck roots. The new model now uses an independent rear suspension, like its key competitors, which promises significant improvements in ride comfort, handling capabilities and third-row room. The truck has grown 1.7 inches longer, which translates into more rear legroom. A 5.3-liter V8 is standard, with a 6.2-liter V8 and a 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder diesel also available. All use a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with four-wheel drive optional. The Suburban’s interior is styled like the upscale SUV that it is, rather than a copy of the Silverado. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection are standard, but blind spot warning is optional.

2020 Chevrolet Suburban Ratings & Reliability
Few SUVs other than the Suburban boast plenty of space for seven or more people, all their stuff, and towing capacity to boot. This behemoth has a sumptuous and quiet interior, plus power-folding second- and third-row seats. Available safety gear includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning and rear cross traffic warning. We got 16 mpg overall with the 5.3-liter V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. The touch-screen infotainment system is easy to use, and the magnetic ride suspension on the Premier trim improves ride comfort and handling response and capability. Recent updates include available lane keeping assist, plus Apple CarPlay. A 6.2-liter V8 is also available. It's paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2015-2019
2015 Redesign Year
Chevrolet Suburban 2019
The 2015 redesign brought a sumptuous and quiet interior, power folding second- and third row seats, as well as optional advanced safety features. It's also more fuel-efficient than previous models. Cabin finish and in-dash electronics are much improved. The interior is considerably quieter too. LT and LTZ models include standard forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems. We'd also get the optional blind-spot monitoring system, which is helpful for keeping track of flanking vehicles. If your budget allows, get the LTZ version because the available Magnetic Ride Control package significantly improves emergency handling, as well as ride quality. Changes for 2016 include available Apple CarPlay capability, a heads-up display and lane-keeping assist.

2007-2014
2007 Redesign Year
Chevrolet Suburban 2014
More agility, better steering and brakes, along with a more efficient six-speed automatic transmission arrived with the 2007 redesign. The interior was also significantly upgraded, but the third-row seats lack thigh support and don't fold into the floor, as some competitors' did by then. The full-time four-wheel-drive system is a plus.

2000-2006
Chevrolet Suburban 2006
An immensely capable offering, GM's largest SUV can seat up to nine people, haul massive loads, or tow big trailers. Sharing its basic platform with GM's pickups, power comes from a strong-but-thirsty 5.3-liter V8. Ride, handling and braking are much improved over its predecessor, but parking is awkward and fuel economy, as you might imagine, is on the poor side.
