Being a nameplate of the longest term in the automotive world, the Suburban features a spacious interior and outstanding towing abilities.

    According to Edmunds, Chevrolet Suburban is a perfect choice for those who are looking for the traditional full-size SUV with colossal towing capacities, as well as passenger and cargo room. The Suburban, indeed, provides room for up to nine people, spacious space for cargo and the ability to tow heavy loads, but it is also a large thirsty SUV.

The Suburban is unexpectedly easy to drive, while most buyers might foresee the sluggish acceleration and unstable handling. As stated by Consumer Guide, Chevy Suburban is a right choice when it comes to smooth power, utility, and overall refinement. Consumer Guide also considers the Suburban LT a number one choice in the Suburban lineup.
