The Chevrolet Suburban is among the most well-known vehicles of all time. It was first released back in 1935, and Chevrolet has continued its production ever since. There are plenty of noticeable changes with the size, design and functionality of this SUV. Fans of the Suburban can definitely point them out instantly and they can say too that there have been plenty of better features that the newer versions have as compared to their predecessors.
State of the Art Infotainment System
Since the invention of high-end phones, there have also been numerous car upgrades that let you enjoy your mobile apps while you’re on board. With the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban, you will get to enjoy the Apple Carplay feature. The Apple Carplay features let iPhone users connect their mobiles to the car through a cable so that they no longer have to go through their mobile phone when they want to access their apps. They can directly access it through the touchscreen monitor found on the dashboard or activate them through voice command.
The 2016 Chevrolet Suburban has a ladder-type frame and a 5.3L V8 engine. It uses a 6-speed automatic transmission and produces 355 HP and a torque of 383 lb-ft. This powerful engine can give you an extra smooth ride or a power-pack control while you’re driving around an offbeat terrain. This vehicle is available in either an all wheel drive or a front wheel drive, depending on the trim level. With this top-notch engine performance, it can pull up to 8,300 lb of cargo.
Apart from its excellent mechanical specifications, it is also highly commended for its high fuel efficiency thanks to its electric power steering wheel. All in all, it has a combined EPA of 23 mpg, a value good enough for such a large vehicle.
Upscale Interior and Exterior
The Chevrolet Suburban has undergone a lot of modification over the years, from the simple looking extended-length SUV to the dashing SUV that is today. The impeccable body is sure to wow the crowd. It gives an impression of being a very spacious vehicle, even without sitting inside it.
The seats have also been upgraded, most especially the seats in the third-row area. These are now fully attached to the flooring of the vehicle. It can be noted that a lot of fans of the Chevy Suburban weren’t too happy about how cumbersome the third-row seats were.
The front row and second row offers plenty of leg room, as how they usually were in the previous models. The details of the interiors looked very classy too, offering an executive ambiance and a relaxing feel. Drivers would, however, be a bit disappointed because up until now, it still doesn’t sport a telescoping steering wheel.
Standard Safety Features
There weren’t any major changes with the safety specifications of the 2016 Chevrolet Chevy. It still comes with the anti-lock brake system, a standard air bag system, rear camera, and parking sensors. Drivers have the option to upgrade the features with forward collision alert, and blind spot monitoring system, if they want to be extra cautious.
