SUV: 2015 Chevrolet Suburban

All-new full-size, body-on-frame SUV gets better fuel economy and handling, greater cargo space and all-round safety technology

One of the longest-running nameplates in the Chevrolet Fleet, the Suburban full-sized SUV is all new as a 2015 model. Outside, new projector headlights and a chrome grille present a fresh new face to the world, while the squared-off architecture of the rest of the vehicle tells the tale of the space to be found inside. Rear seat legroom – already impressive – is up by a full two inches, and both rear rows of seats can fold flat to haul just about any cargo you can throw at it. Dual-screen rear entertainment and up to six USB power outlets mean that all passengers will be fully occupied – up front, an eight-inch colour touchscreen provides an intuitive interface so that the driver can keep their eyes on the road.
