The newest update for the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is going to do so much for the newest brand. With the update that was already released for this vehicle, the newest model is going to go even beyond that. It was unveiled that the car is being already designed and the release date will be offered much sooner than 2018.
The Suburban is one of the more legendary namesakes from the Chevy lineup. Some would say that the Suburban started the whole SUV segment and its first version was released a long time ago in the 1930s. This does not only make this vehicle one of the oldest in the SUV segment but also one of the oldest brands, period. So you may see how necessary it is to update it from time to time.
The newest 2018 fleet will be given a new type of design which is planned to be transferred to some future models as well. It is a part of the whole new Chevy design which promises to be a great one for the future of the brand.
We are also expecting the Suburban to come back with a few more updates and also with the standard set of trims which includes the LS, LT, and Premier trims.
When is the Release Date for the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban?
The updated version of the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban car is supposed to make its debut a little bit earlier than expected. The car is near production ready and we are hoping to see it by the start of 2018 model year, if not earlier. But a more probable release date is the latter part of 2017.
Expected Price Rating
The newest 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is going to be a bit pricier than the last one. The current model has a base MSRP price of 49,915 USD, for the entry-version, while the highest-rated Premier trim costs 64,730 USD. Expect the numbers to get a little bit larger for the newest 2018 version.
The newest 2018 Chevrolet Suburban was redesigned in a more contemporary way. The old version of the car used to share elements with the Silverado models, but now it has some unique details which makes it a standout on its own. The sheetmetal is now sportier and pressed in an angular way. The Suburban uses design which is made with steam-iron precision, making it look more luxurious than it actually is.
The plan is to transfer the new look and design language to the future Chevrolet models. The same kind of design will be available for the future Traverse and Tahoe models. This shows that Chevrolet is thinking about the future, not just of the present cars and also for the entire roster of vehicles to come.
The inside of the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is far better than the previous car ever had been. In fact, the car brings more suave and it does so with the included soft-touch materials that make up the inside of even the base version of the car. The premium trims give even more luxury and have an advanced offer when it comes to comfort. This small update does a lot for the face of Suburban cars and it brings us a much expanded and much comfortable offer for our fans.
The technology is also upgraded and it starts with a larger touchscreen. The interior gadgets are all transferred from before but have bene updated for the new version. The Suburban is equally a convenient and a contemporary vehicle and it manages to bring the maximum amount of comfort with the expanded technology. Also the spacing is pretty good and enables the passengers to feel even better.
Powertrain Choices and Specs
The newest 2018 Chevrolet Suburban will not change its powertrain. It will come with the same 5.3-liter V-8 engine, which is the same type of engine found under the hood of a Silverado car. But this model has an output of 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque and the drivetrain will also combine with a 6-speed automatic which can transfer the power to either the rear or all four wheels.
0-60 mph Acceleration and Top Speed
Because the engine of the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is not going to change, the specs of it are not going to be changed as well. The time to reach 60 mph from a standstill for this car is still 7.1 seconds while the top speed amounts to 113 mph.
The gas mileage for the future 2018 Chevrolet Suburban will still be at an acceptable rate. The model will not change so much compared to the current output. The new model will provide EPA rates that measure to 15 mpg city drive and 22 mpg highway drive and it also comes to a pretty acceptable combined rating of 19 mpg.
The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is perhaps the largest vehicle in the current Chevy fleet. This new model will not change dimensions compared to last time and in that sense still remains the largest model in the fleet. There was no need to add more interior spacing as the model hosts enough of it already. The entire length of the car is measured at 220 inches and the wheelbase is 130-inches long. This also amounts to a width of 80.5 inches and a height of 74.4 in while the curb weight is around 6015 lb.
What are the Safety Features?
Although the latest Suburban did not do that well, the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban will try to patch up the flaws with the last one had. The model did not do well in the frontal protection after federal testing, which is a usual flaw when it comes to SUV models. The car will come with a standard set of safety features which we have seen before. So expect to see front-center airbags, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning system with seat-mounted haptic alerts, forward collision alerts, blind-spot monitors and front parking sensors. We might get some advanced ones as part of the expansion which might help to fix some things up.
List of Rivaling Cars
The new 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is going to follow its legendary line of vehicles and will continue to be one of the biggest cars on the road. But there is a number of cars which will expand the market and some new ones which are only entering the segment. Some alternative offers include the Ford Expedition, GMC Yukon, Lincoln Navigator and Nissan Armada.
