Last week, Chevrolet announced the all-new 2021 Suburban (and its smaller full-size SUV sibling, the Tahoe) — but if you’re looking for a full-size family hauler now, the current-generation Suburban is probably high on your list. With three rows of seating and a maximum towing capacity of up to 8,300 pounds, the Suburban offers the ability to carry people, their stuff and pull something all at the same time. It competes against a very American field of SUVs that includes its brand sibling, the GMC Yukon XL, as well as the Ford Expedition Max and its sibling, the Lincoln Navigator.
Available in rear- or four-wheel drive, the Suburban offers two V-8 engine choices: a 5.3-liter or a 6.2-liter, producing 355 or 420 horsepower, respectively. Automatic transmissions are the only choice available, with either six gears or 10. For those interested in the maximum towing capacity of the Suburban, a rear-wheel-drive model powered by the 5.3-liter engine is your ticket.
