With the news of the imminent launch of 2019 Chevrolet Suburban breaking out, the first thought to enter our heads is that they must be going for a complete makeover. But if the rumours and the leaked images are anything to go by, it seems that we may well have to wait for that update and it ain’t happening this year which was a letdown of sorts. Still, this truck, for its hard to call it a car, is as big as an SUV can get, and manages to seat 9 people and haul all their stuff at the same time. Guess its time, that we took a closer look at old-fashioned crossover truck SUV, right?
Chevy certainly seems to be going full guns blazing as far as the SUV niche is concerned; with the release of its smaller cousin Tahoe, it is now all set to launch 2019 Chevrolet Suburban. After reviewing all the leaked images, we can confirm that other than a few changes, the same design carries over to this year. And it seems that we may get a new engine with this year’s launch, giving the new model more power and a boost to performance as well.
Exterior, under the hood:
As mentioned earlier, there hardly seems to be much change as far as the exterior of 2019 Chevrolet Suburban is concerned. It still comes with the same front fascia with chrome accents to the grille as well as a slightly tweaked front bumper. The exterior still comes with the same boxed shape but seems to have gotten more curb appeal with the strange headlights which are certain to get more than its fair share of attention.
The only other changes that we could spot to the cool exterior are the body coloured grille along with body handles and the rear end gets the same treatment as before. It also comes with Boria style dual exhaust system which is supposed to improve performance by as much as 28% and that’s a lot. The new model also comes with roof rails, black Chevy bow ties, window trims and much more.
The suburban also comes with enhanced suspension in the form of magnetic ride control suspension as well an s22 inch metal alloy wheels and a new performance package (RTS). The overall impact is spot on and the new model stands out for all the right reasons.
The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban comes with a slightly revamped and luxurious interior; the car comes with plush leather upholstery, with heated and cooled multi-adjustable driver’s seat. The interior is all set to resemble the interior of a car and the dash is set to resemble the same.
The instruments are clustered neatly within easy reach; the new model also comes with climate control as well as an 8-inch infotainment system that’s compatible with android auto and apple car play. The second and third-row seats fold flat and the seats can be adjusted so that there is more cargo space. It also comes with several advanced safety features including automatic braking and active lane assist features.
Drivetrain, launch date, specs, prices:
The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban comes with a four-wheel drive through rear wheel drive is offered on some of the trims. It also comes with the 5.3-liter V-8 engine which performs at 355 hp and 383 torque for all the trims. But the RST package comes with 6.2-liter V-8engine which cranks out 420 hp and 460 pound-feet. The new model is all set to be launched by the end of this year and the basic trim may well come with a price tag of $50000.
