Chevrolet Suburban and its short-wheelbase cousin, the Tahoe, have both seen significant redesigns, which are being shown off live at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new looks, with the dual-tiered headlights and bold grille aren't a radical departure from the current Suburban/Tahoe's design. Accompanied by an overhauled interior, the new models are a solid improvement over the previous models.
Unlike the rest of GM's large, truck-based SUVs, the Tahoe and
Suburban's engine bay is home to a 5.3-liter V8, rather than the
brawnier 6.2-liter found in the Escalade and Yukon.
With 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, it's still more
potent than the previous models' engines, but is down considerably on
the 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque in the higher-end SUVs. Despite the
lower power output, the 5.3 is fitted with the same suite of fuel-saving
features found on the other GM SUVs, including active fuel management with cylinder deactivation.
In the cabin, Chevrolet's MyLink
system sits front and center on higher-end models, complete with an
eight-inch touchscreen. Push-button start is the marquis standard
feature, although other items like power fold-flat seats, 20- and
22-inch wheels are optional extras.
