Chevrolet has long been considered a dependable brand when it comes to manufacturing vehicles. The American based company is dedicated to producing quality cars at affordable prices. For decades, advancements in technology has enabled Chevrolet to craft new models each and every year. The year 2018 is no different — as this season’s version of the iconic Chevrolet Suburban is quite an accomplished mode of transportation. It’s firmly established itself as a staple within the world of SUVs. When diving deeper into the ’18 Suburban, there’s a whole lot to like.
There are six configurations to choose from — including the LS, LS 4WD, LT, LT 4WD, Premier, and Premier 4WD. According to the Chevrolet website, the LS begins at $50,200. Each Suburban comes equipped with a 5.3-L EcoTec3 V8 engine. Metrics for this powerful engine includes 355 HP, 383 lb.-ft. of torque, and an eye-popping 8,300 pounds of max towing. This facet makes the 2018 Chevy Suburban much more value — particularly for those often tasked with mobilizing trailers, heavy machinery, and other items (such as boats).
Approximations have the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban getting 16 miles-per-gallon in city driving, and 23 miles-per-gallon on the highway. This sort of fuel economy is rather impressive when factoring in the power of the engine as well as the present towing capabilities.
With the ability to fit nine people, the interior cabin is understandably spacious. Within that same token, the Suburban is highly comfortable. The riding experience is made more pleasant by a quiet ride. Standard features within the cabin include Bluetooth capabilities, a six-speaker audio system, HD radio, satellite radio, an 8″ touchscreen, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, a remote start, and five USB Ports. If one desires, enhancements can be made with additional fees. Potential possibilities involve a sunroof, a 9-or-10 speaker system, and a rear-seat Blu-Ray entertainment system.
From a cargo standpoint, the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is sublime. With all rows in their upright position, the car gets 39.3 cubic-feet of space. These numbers jump dramatically with one row (76.7 cubic-feet) or two rows (121.7 cubic-feet) folded down. A hands-free power liftgate may be purchased.
The 2018 Chevy Suburban prioritizes safety. This can be seen with available alterations (blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, rear-cross traffic alert, lane-keep assist, front parking sensors). The NHTSA offered 4-star marks for Overall Rating and Frontal Crash. The Suburban also received a 5-star grade for Side Crash.
Without question, this iconic SUV has only gotten better with age. One could do very well with purchasing/leasing a 2018 Chevrolet Suburban.
