The latest Suburban is the most refined vehicle to ever wear the name. The Suburban is Chevrolet's long wheelbase full-sized SUV. Other divisions of GM sell variations as the Escalade and Yukon. Inside, there are three rows of seats for up to 9 passengers depending on the equipped seating. Compared to the shorter-wheelbase variant Tahoe, the Suburban is some 20 inches longer in overall length. Most of the length is behind the second row seats nearly doubling the cargo capacity behind the third row. The standard 5.3L V-8 engine has cylinder deactivation technology to allow the engine to run on 4-cylinders under light load conditions. Although full-size SUVs have become popular as family haulers, their only real advantage is tow ratings of over 7500 lbs. Full-size SUVs with truck underpinnings are robbed of interior space with the body mounted over the frame. Most families would be better served with a crossover SUV such as the Chevrolet Traverse. Many offer similar legroom with improved maneuverability, cargo capacity and fuel efficiency for less money.
