As you’re shopping around for a new vehicle, we’re sure you’ll be overwhelmed by all the numbers and specs that will be thrown your way. These vehicles are chock full with “best-in-class” numbers, but they can be difficult to digest. After all, since you’re going to be overwhelmed by all of these numbers, we’re sure you won’t be picking up on some of the most impressive amenities.
Fortunately, when it comes to one of the most impressive SUVs in the industry, we’ve got your back. The 2018 Chevy Suburban is one of the most well-rounded vehicles in the segment, but we wouldn’t blame you if all of the applicable numbers are too much to handle. Fortunately, they’re not, and we’ve provided an easy-to-digest guide to some of these specs below.
Below, we’ve explored some of our favorite specs included in the 2018 Chevy Suburban. Take a look for yourself at everything this nameplate has to offer, and we’re sure you’ll be itching to pursue the popular SUV…
121.7: cubic-feet of space
If you take one look at the 2018 Chevy Suburban, you’ll understand how hulking the SUV actually is. However, you still might not recognize how crazy the interior specs are. The vehicle delivers an already-impressive 39.3-cubic-feet of space behind the third row, but owners can ultimately unlock an incredible 121.7-cubic-feet of cargo space. This means owners can truly squeeze in whatever cargo they need to bring along on their journey.
Chevy’s engineers also did an admirable job of including various features that will make loading your luggage and maximizing the cargo space easier than ever. For instance, the power-release second-row and power-fold-flat third-row seats can easily be hidden when you need to unlock all of that space, while the hands-free programable power lift gate means you won’t have to dig into your pockets for your keys in order to load your groceries.
The brand even included several additional places to hide your most valuable gadgets and cargo. For instance, the center console is large enough to store a laptop, meaning you can be assured that your pricey computer is hidden at all times.
23: miles per gallon
For such a large, rugged SUV, we’re sure you’re expecting the 2018 Chevy Suburban to deliver a whole lot of power. Well, you won’t be disappointed, as the accompanying engine delivers some of the best power specs in the entire class. The 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine delivers an impressive 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, leading to an astonishing 8,300-pound towing capacity. Clearly, this nameplate delivers the power that you’re seeking, and you’d be hard pressed to find these kind of specs from rival vehicles.
However, the Suburban really impresses with its surprising fuel efficiency specs. Thanks to several fuel-saving technologies, the unit manages to deliver a best-in-class V8 fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon on the highway. While you will have to dish out some money to afford this SUV, you can at least rest easy knowing you’ll save some extra bucks at the gas station.
8: inch diagonal reconfigurable cluster
Of course, considering the 2018 Chevy Suburban was recently released, the SUV is chock full of the latest technological amenities. However, the brand manages to separate itself from the competition thanks to the variety of offerings.
The star of the interior is the eight-inch diagonal reconfigurable cluster, which provides all of the applications a driver could possibly need. The accompanying Driver Information Center delivers important diagnostic information, while the radio and navigation applications are the perfect companion for those long journeys. The unit even includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, allowing occupants to seamlessly connect their smartphone to the SUV. Thanks to this inclusion, occupants can perform many of their phone’s most basic functions, including phone calls and text messages.
The technological amenities don’t end there. Out back, your rear passengers will appreciate the available Rear Seat Entertainment System with Blu-Ray playback, which will keep them entertained and occupied during any road trip. With screens in the second and third row, all of your younger passengers can join in on the fun. The HDMI connector will allow these passengers to connect their preferred device (including game consoles), while the wireless digital headphones assures that the driver won’t be distracted by any of the loud sounds coming from the system. If that doesn’t do it for your younger passengers, they’ll enjoy the 4G LTE Wi-Fi, which delivers a strong wireless internet connection for up to seven devices.
Up front, the driver will grow to rely on the Head-Up Display, which showcases important information right on the windshield. Instead of having to contort your body in order to view navigation, fuel, or speed information, these important details will be displayed directly in front of you.
7: Advanced Safety Features
The 2018 Chevy Suburban is equipped with a number of safety technologies that are intended to prevent accidents from even occurring in the first place. These features apply to both the front and rear of your SUV, assuring that every angle is covered.
Up front, the Forward Collision Alert is a notable inclusion, as the technology will detect when you’re approaching a stationary object at too great of a speed. If necessary, the accompanying Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking system will even apply the brakes, thus lessening (or preventing) the impending impact. If you’re not a fan of those audible and visual warnings, the Safety Alert Seat will vibrate when you’re in a potentially dangerous situation.
Out back, a number of technologies will assure that your Chevy Suburban maintains its like-new quality. The Lane Change Alert (with Side Blind Zone Alert) is the most notable feature, as the technology provides you with an extra set of eyes when you’re traveling on the highway. Meanwhile, the Rear Vision Camera, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and the Rear Park Assist will play an important role in preventing fender benders, and they’ll prove to be especially useful when moving around a parking lot.
