Engine & Performance

The 2015 Suburban comes with a 5.3 liter, small block V-8 engine. The engine is part of the Ecotec 3 engine family based on the 5th generation GM small-block engine. This engine gets the same direct injection, variable valve timing, and Active Fuel Management cylinder-deactivation featured in the Silverado.

You get a total output is 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Power is routed to either the rear wheels or all 4 through a 6-speed automatic transmission.



The exterior design of the SUV is more refined and precisely sculpted. The lines are smooth and part of this smoothness is attributed to the SUV’s doors, which are inlaid into the body resulting in a better sealing and reduced noise levels. Chevy has reduced the Suburban’s mass by utilizing aluminum for the hood and lift gate.

Other features include projector-beam headlamps, high-intensity discharge headlamps and light-emitting diode daytime running lamps.2015-Chevrolet-Suburban-my-summer-home-B


Inside the Suburban, premium materials and enhanced ergonomics demonstrate the car’s blend of sophistication, craftsmanship and function.

An instrument panel houses an 8 inch color touch screen radio with a secured storage bin behind the motorized screen. The compartmentalized center console is big enough to store an iPad and a laptop.


Chevrolet has incorporated new safety technologies such as a radar that contributes to 360 degrees of crash avoidance and occupant protection. The standard features include front park assist, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane change assist movement sensors, alarm systems and adaptive cruise control.

The Chevrolet’s Safety Alert Seat is also available and gives directional vibrations to alert the driver about potential crash threats.
