Whether you have heard of the Suburban or not, the Chevy Suburban has had its wheel in the door of the SUV world since 1935 and is considered one of the first of its vehicle type, though the term "SUV" was not technically used by the public during that time period. The Suburban has been redesigned five times in its lifetime, giving us a familiar—and most recently larger—style since 2021. It has taken on rounder curves and a roomier interior since its beginnings. Now, the Suburban is getting ready to take on 2024 with more power, great suspension, and comfort to impress any of its passengers. It is an SUV that has remained popular because of its reliability, luxurious designs, and powerful engine options. It has even been awarded “Best Large SUV for Families” three years in a row by U.S. News & World Report. However, there is so much more to love. We at Newton Chevrolet of Russellville are ready to show you exactly what the new 2024 Chevy Suburban can do.
Chevy Suburbans are no stranger to speed, power, and strength. Equipped with six-cylinder and eight-cylinder engines, they have enough power to go just about anywhere. They have always been great family cars able to haul and tow large loads, as well as provide spacious interiors and comfortable rides for large numbers of passengers. With the number of trim options to choose from, this SUV is almost completely customizable in its design, features, and, of course, performance.
When talking about the Suburban's impressive performance, it is worth mentioning the default engine for the base trim is the powerful 5.3L Ecotec3 V8, giving drivers 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. This engine is the best choice for towing heavier loads. Higher trim options can offer better fuel efficiency and torque. The best horsepower and aerodynamic trim comes with the 6.2L Ecotec3 V8 engine with an output of 420 hp to get you where you need to go and beyond. These engines with a 10-speed automatic transmission are a better fit for drivers looking for heavy and wide vehicles to carry taxing payloads. Overall, the performance is excellent, offering a range of capabilities for those ready to drive the three-row-seater SUV.
The 2024 Suburban has an above-average life expectancy and can reach upwards of an estimated 250,000 miles. It is a long-lasting vehicle with plenty of strength to spare. There are three engine options: the 5.3L Ecotec3 V8, 6.2L Ecotec3 V8, and 3.0L Duramax Turbo Diesel I-6. It is available in RWD and 4WD with a fuel economy ranging between a combined EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 16 to 23 MPG. The Suburban has a long-standing reputation for longevity and dependability. It can hold large families, has large cargo spaces, and wraps it up with a nice big bow by making it convenient and comfortable for everyone.
One of the best aspects of the 2024 Suburban and the source of many of its positive reviews comes from its high safety ratings. Of course, SUVs, in general, are considered very safe and are popular for that very reason. However, the mere size of this year's Suburban—to give you an idea, it can fit up to nine people—is enough to ensure many of those positive reviews. It shouldn’t be a surprise that Chevy makes so many safety features standard. The Suburban's base trim comes equipped with the Chevy Safety Assist suite of safety features, which allows you to drive confidently with features like forward collision alert, pedestrian detection and braking, emergency braking, LED headlamps, lane-keep assist, and departure warning. There are also adaptive cruise control to help you keep a particular distance from other vehicles in traffic, which can help prevent accidents. The available OnStar safety and security program will be there for you 24/7 for an extra layer of security.
You could say driving the Suburban is like driving the SUV of the future. With all of the useful and entertaining technology built-in—like the 10.2-inch touchscreen that has Google, WI-FI, and voice control to keep drivers with their hands on the wheels and their eyes on the road—the Suburban is one of the most technologically advanced SUVs on the road. There are even bonus tech features available, like the kid’s favorite rear-seat media system and dad’s favorite advanced trailering system for easy monitoring, hook-ups, and customizable trailer profiles. It even gives you up to four different camera views, so you can rest easy while the Suburban does all the work. Head-up displays have been a great vehicle technology upgrade because of their transparency that make it simpler to keep informed without glancing away from the road ahead. With so much to love, like Super Cruise driver-assist technology and the MyChevrolet app for better car information access, it is no wonder why so many families seek out this SUV.
The 2024 Chevrolet Suburban is stuffed with features to simplify driving and keep your eyes and mind on the road. To start, there is buckle-to-drive technology that prevents a driver from putting the Suburban into gear unless their safety belt is engaged. This is an especially useful feature for new drivers who have not built safe driving habits yet. The Suburban has a versatile interior that includes second and third-row folding seats, plus a power sliding console. Using all these features, the Suburban's maximum cargo space goes up to 144.7 cu.ft. That is more space than other SUV cargo holds or even many truck beds. There are collapsible cargo area organizers that are lightweight and removable to allow you to customize your cargo and seating spaces. They help create more space versatility, rather than letting everything fly and roll around in the back.
Everyone loves a luxurious interior, right? Absolutely! Who wouldn’t? That is precisely what you get in the 2024 Suburban, as well as some features that we can’t leave out. There is enough room for all your passengers to have plenty of leg and headroom, even when carrying cargo, as well as an eight-way power driver's seat and six-way front passenger seat for the ultimate seating convenience. There is an available Bose 10-speaker surround-sound system for ear pleasure. There are also carpeted floors and covers to keep the interior spotless and easily cleaned. View what’s happening around you from the convenience of your touchscreen with HD vision cameras. Cell phone compatibility can also help you stay entertained, informed, and connected. Use the exciting space-manipulating panoramic power sunroof to let in the sunshine. With a premium interior design and so many features to love, there is almost nothing you can’t do in this versatile car.
The exterior of the 2024 Suburban is rugged, stylish, and wide. A hands-free power liftgate is available to make packing the car easier. Power-retractable assist steps make entering and exiting a tall vehicle more comfortable for many passengers who would have to climb and struggle otherwise. Stylish exterior paint colors also pack a punch and make heads turn. LED headlamps and taillights enhance visibility. Different wheel sizes allow drivers to sit higher and feel more powerful. Of course, with the unique trim options come more style options, like black grilles and accent colors, as well as emblems, all-terrain tires, and illuminating lights (which are especially helpful at night) on mirrors, sides, etc. No matter which Suburban you choose, the exterior will remain tough and as practical as the inside features.
