New for 2017

The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban gets the Teen Driver feature as standard and a new Premier trim replacing the LTZ grade, which can be had with new 22-inch alloy wheels. Two new exterior colors, Blue Velvet Metallic and Pepperdust Metallic have been added.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban is a full-size SUV slotting above the smaller Tahoe. Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive is optional on all variants.

Suburban LS: The base trim of the 2017 Suburban comes with remote start, tri-zone climate control, Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, five USB ports, cloth upholstery, 4G LTE connectivity, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Suburban LT: Building on the LS trim, the Suburban LT adds a Bose premium audio system, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, heated front seats, low-speed automatic emergency braking, and the Enhanced Driver Alert package, which includes forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, IntelliBeam headlights, and the Safety Alert driver's seat

Suburban Premier: Rounding out the Suburban range is the Premier grade, which comes with standard 20-inch alloy wheels, HID headlights, Magnetic Ride Control, front parking sensors, ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, keyless entry/start, blind-spot monitoring and lane change alert.

Notable options include navigation, a rear seat entertainment system, and a sunroof, all of which are bundled together as a single package.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban is powered by a 5.3-liter V-8 rated at 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission. EPA fuel economy ratings are 16/23 mpg city/highway in the rear-drive configuration or 15/22 mpg with four-wheel drive.

Safety

The 2017 Suburban received a four-star overall rating from the NHTSA (out of five-stars). The IIHS hasn't crash tested the 2017 Suburban but it got a Basic rating in the front crash prevention test since it comes with forward collision warning (Superior is the highest score in the front crash prevention test).

On higher trims, the 2017 Chevrolet Suburban is available with forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, the Safety Alert driver's seat, IntelliBeam headlights, blind-spot monitoring, lane change alert, low-speed automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.

Utility

Behind the third row, there's 39.3 cubic feet of cargo space that can be expanded to 76.7 cubic feet behind the second row and 121.7 cubic feet behind the front seats. When properly equipped, rear-drive Tahoes can tow 8,300 pounds of payload while four-wheel-drive-equipped models can haul slightly less at 8,000 pounds.

What We Think

In a 2015 First Drive, we noted that the 5.3-liter V-8 is smooth and easily moves the Suburban around. Ride comfort is excellent, making the Suburban a great road trip vehicle. Material quality in the Suburban, however, is slightly lower than in its sister vehicle, the GMC Yukon. We also noted in a 2015 First Test that for such a massive vehicle, the Suburban handles well but it still lets you know of the fact that it's a massive SUV. Its price, however, may be higher than some expect, especially those more accustomed to prices of car-based crossovers.

Cool Fact

The Tahoe's 5.3-liter V-8 is also found on a number of General Motors vehicles including the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Suburban, as well as the GMC Sierra 1500 and Yukon.
