The Chevrolet Suburban has undergone a huge overhaul for the entry of a new generation for 2015. This vehicle is still the same powerful people hauler it always has been, but it’s also more stylish, better equipped and more advanced now.
The 2015 Chevrolet Suburban has been completely remodeled for 2015 to assert itself as a top contender in the full-size SUV category. The Chevrolet Suburban is officially the longest continuous-use automobile nameplate in production, having started in 1935 in the U.S. It has also traditionally been one of the most profitable vehicles in the Chevrolet lineup. The completely redesigned 2015 Suburban gets multiple updates, which include: a quieter cabin, high-quality materials, a fold-flat third-row seat and improved fuel economy. This vehicle was built to be a people hauler and for 2015 it not only continues to do that, but in a more stylish way than ever. This SUV is capable of carrying up to nine passengers and while that might seem excessive, there is a continued demand for this type of vehicle. The Chevrolet Suburban is one of the most capable vehicles on the market today thanks to its size and capacity, and with few direct competitors, this do-anything utility vehicle is a great option.
The Chevrolet Suburban is truly a beast on the road. This vehicle is large and commanding, with an extremely dominating road presence. Thanks to an all-new sheet metal, the Suburban has officially broken all ties to its pickup counterpart. The Chevrolet designers decided that they would enhance the length of this vehicle rather than hide it by adding long lines to the body. The front grille is broad and makes the SUV look even wider then it really is. The redesign has also made the Suburban more aerodynamic, according the Chevy, with its creased, pressed and highly angular look. The Suburban is available in three trim levels: the LS, LT and LTZ. The trim level selected won’t drastically change the exterior appearance of this car, but slight upgrades are noticeable. There are also standalone features available that will change the look of the Suburban, such as 22-inch wheels, roof rack crossbars and power-extending running boards.
The interior of the Suburban is very similar to the exterior in the sense that it is huge. This vehicle has space for just about anything, including up to nine people and a bunch of cargo. The upgrades for 2015 have also given the interior a more high-quality look with the use of better materials. The gauge cluster is well laid-out and easy to read during the day or night. The Suburban comes standard with seating for eight passengers, but there is an option for nine seats in the LS trim. Most passengers will find the front seats comfortable and supportive, second-row seats are also comfortable with ample legroom. The third row is an improvement from the small Chevrolet Tahoe, but still may be tight for most. A welcome addition to the 2015 model is a third row that folds flat into the floor, which can drastically increase the cargo space. With all of the seats occupied, the Suburban has a cargo capacity of 38.9 cubic feet. Folding the third row increases this to 76.7 cubic feet and with both rows stowed, maximum cargo space is a whopping 121.1 cubes.
The technology features in the Suburban also get an upgrade in the new 2015 model. The standard display is a 4.2-inch touchscreen, which can be upgraded to an eight-inch screen. It displays all of the information and entertainment features that are available on this car through one easy-to-use infotainment system – MyLink. Standard functions on this system include voice control, smartphone app integration, text-to-voice capability and more. There is also a package that is available for the LT and LTZ that adds a navigation system and rear-seat entertainment system with a Blu-Ray player. The MyLink system is quite sophisticated, but can be slow to respond to touch functions at times.
Under the hood of the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is an all-new 5.3-litre V8 engine that generates 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels on 2WD models and all four wheels on the 4WD model. When equipped properly, the 2WD version can tow 8,300 pounds, while the 4WD can carry 8,300 pounds.
Overall, the completely redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is a solid choice for the buyer who needs to carry around a lot of people and stuff. The 2015 upgrades elevate this car to a more comfortable and high-tech space to spend time in.

The overall quality and design of the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban's interior is noticeably improved compared to the previous-generation SUV. Materials are of high quality, and the gauge cluster's crisp white-on-black graphics are a snap to read day or night. The central information display is intuitive to navigate and its graphics are simple and easily interpreted. Both the standard 4.2- and optional 8.0-inch central color infotainment displays feature sophisticated (and in some cases reconfigurable) graphics options. Unfortunately, MyLink can sometimes be slow to respond to your touch inputs.
