Chevrolet is giving the 2019 Suburban RST a Performance Package to put some muscle behind the bad-boy looks of what has been largely a show-but-no-more-go appearance package.
The 2019 Suburban RST Performance Package will get GM’s 420-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 engine and its new 10-speed automatic transmission, a hefty upgrade from the standard 355-hp, 5.3-liter V-8 and six-speed automatic. The big V-8 puts out 460 pounds-feet of torque and the towing rating is expected to be 8,100 pounds. It’s the first time the 6.2-liter has been offered for the Suburban. Until now you had to pay up for a GMC Yukon XL Denali or Cadillac Escalade ESV to get that engine in a GM long-wheelbase SUV.
