Review Summary:

Adorned with plush leather all over the cabin, the 2015 is most definitely luxurious, and with the capacity to seat 9 individuals, it's mighty spacious too!


* As far as road presence in concerned, there isn't much out there in the way of the Suburban.


* Due to its sheer size, navigating the Suburban through the city and tight parking lots, is quite a daunting task in itself.


The Suburban has always merely been a stretched version of its more compact sibling, the Tahoe, and in 2015, that still holds true. Measuring in at 5,699mm long, the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is 40mm longer than its predecessors, but the differences don’t end there. Utilizing refined sheet metal, the latest-gen Amercian SUV flaunts a certain sheen that the previous models lacked, and in an effort to offer a more luxurious ride, the guys at Chevrolet have opted for new inlaid doors that fit into the body side openings and significantly improve cabin quietness.Clearly a step up in refinement, then.

Adorned with plush leather all over the cabin, the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is most definitely luxurious, and with the capacity to seat 9 individuals, it’s mighty spacious too! But in today’s digital day and age, the designers’ have not forgotten our reliance on our devices, 6 USB ports and 6 power outlets scattered around the cabin to ensure no shortage of charging slots. Well done.

Challenging the status-quo and doing something differently is always encouraged, and the results are even more rewarding when the outcomes are practical. So with cupholders integrated into the door panels and electronic fold flat seats which reveal an exceptional 3,429 litres of storage capacity in the Suburban, there’s not much left to do except congratulate the designers, really.

What’s on offer?

Under the hood of the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, resides a 5.3 litre ECOTEC3 V8 engine that produces 355 horsepower at 5,600 RPM and 518 Nm of torque at 4,100 RPM. While the figures may look promising on paper, it feels lethargic and could most definitely do with a larger powerhouse to deal with the increased weight over its more compact sibling.

Summing it…

In the eyes of Chevrolet, the Suburban goes up against local favourites such as the Toyota Land Cruiser and Nissan Patrol, but in actuality, they can’t really be compared. Because while the aforementioned rivals are dune annihilators, the Suburban is more of an urban crawler. Sure, it would be willing to get dirty, but it’d pick the school run over a day out in the dunes any day.
