The 2018 Chevy Suburban does not look very different from the existing model as it is. The rugged boxy build is there but a few touches of changes can also be felt. There are many types of SUVs you will find on road nowadays. There are a few that are targeted at peppy urban buyers with a focus on amenities rather than utility. However, a section of people still prefers SUVs with large body and truck origin. This is where you will find the Chevy Suburban a favorite with the buyers. For a long time this large SUV from GM stable has been a top player and for 2018 it is getting a makeover. The SUV will lock horns with segment heavyweights like Toyota Sequoia and Ford Expedition.
2018 Chevy Suburban – Redesign Exterior and Interior
If you look closely, the changes in grille and bumper become evident. It will be sold in 3 trims- LS, LT, and Premier and a special edition may also be unveiled later. Inside, you will find lots of refinement. GM has used several types of noise insulating materials to ensure the cabin is devoid of noise. There is enough space for every passenger inside and third-row seats are better than what most category rivals have. You may opt for customizable seating setup that can accommodate 7 to 9 passengers. You will get enough storage bins and cubicles to keep the gadgets and accessories while traveling.
The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban ups the ante in both safety and technology segments. There are a lot of airbags inside and you get safety features like Adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitors, front parking sensors and forward collision alerts. However, the base trim misses out on most of these features. The new teen driver mode is there too which is praiseworthy.
As for entertainment, you get plenty of stuff to tinker with. All trims get automatic wipers, remote keyless entry, heated mirrors, and 3 zones automatic climate control. There is OnStar with 4G LTE and embedded Wi-Fi hotspot. The Chevrolet MyLink infotainment gets a boost with full Smartphone integration and support for Bluetooth streaming. You may opt for back seat entertainment system with Blu-Ray/DVD player.
2018 Chevy Suburban – Powerful Engine
The 2018 Chevy Suburban is likely to use the same engine used in the 2017 model. So, it may get the powerful 5.3-liter V-8 unit with 355 hp. In Premier trim, the company adds Magnetic Ride Control which enhances ride quality by a margin. The maximum towing capacity is 8300 pounds which leave most rivals lagging behind.
2018 Chevy Suburban – Price and Availability
The pricing of 2018 Chevy Suburban will start at $50,000 approx and the top trim price may be upwards of $62,000. The SUV will be released in late 2017.
The 2018 Chevy Suburban has its truck roots in place but the cabin gets a big boost in refinement and technologies. GM also offers plenty of customization options in seating and cargo management. It has the potential to continue its supremacy in full-sized SUV segment.
