2014 Chevrolet Suburban Reviews

Vehicle Overview

The current generation of the Chevrolet Suburban full-size SUV is entering its final model year, so the offerings have been trimmed to regular-duty 1500 models available with a choice of rear- or four-wheel drive. The heavy-duty 2500 version and the 6.0-liter V-8 that powered it are available to fleet buyers and custom outfitters. New versions of the Suburban and its siblings are due in spring 2014 as early 2015 models and will be based on the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck.
The Suburban is a longer version of the Tahoe, and it can seat up to nine people. Its GM siblings are the more upscale GMC Yukon XL and even ritzier Cadillac Escalade ESV. The Suburban competes with other full-size SUVs like the Ford Expedition EL, Nissan Armada and Toyota Sequoia.
New for 2014
Besides trimming the lineup to 1500 models, the Convenience Package is now standard. It includes power-adjustable pedals, remote start, rear parking assist and a backup camera.

A fabulous car!

by Beets from Herndon, VA on November 7, 2017

I bought it for the cargo capacity and the fact that it was the last year with removable 3rd row seating.

Learn More About Warranties

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
