What's New in the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban?

Which Suburban is the Best?

The best value for your money is the LT trim. It costs about $5,000 more than the base LS, but it has more features and a doorway to a more robust option list. The Premier's magnetic ride-control feature is its only real advantage over the LT, but we think most people will find the LT's standard suspension works fine. Find a Chevrolet Suburban for sale

Chevrolet Suburban Safety

Is the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban a Safe Car?

The Suburban carries a full complement of airbags, including front-seat, side-impact and full-length side-curtain airbags. Also standard is the segment's only front-seat center-mounted airbag (for models with bucket seats only), which provides greater protection to the driver and passenger in the event of a side-impact collision. Additional safety equipment includes available lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, a blind spot monitoring system and a radar-based forward-collision warning and front automatic braking system.

In crash-testing carried out by the federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban earned four stars out of a possible five. The Suburban hasn't yet been thoroughly tested by the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

2020 Chevrolet Suburban vs the competition

2019 Nissan Armada -- The Armada costs significantly less than the Suburban and has an 8,500-lb tow rating. The Armada's mileage is nowhere near as good, however, nor is its cargo space behind the third-row seat.

2020 GMC Yukon XL -- The Suburban's slightly upscale twin, the Yukon XL, provides the same dimensions with the option of the 6.2-liter V8 on the luxurious Denali trim.

2019 Ford Expedition Max -- Ford's full-size SUV is newer than the Suburban, with improved safety features, an extensive use of aluminum and a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with more hp than the Suburban's V8. It also has a flush-folding third-row seat and a higher tow rating.

Used Cadillac Escalade -- If you like the Suburban's size and might but want more luxury, you may want to consider its upscale Escalade mechanical twin. It offers more equipment, bolder styling and a stronger brand name. Prices are steep, though, so you may want to consider a used model.
