2017 Chevrolet Suburban review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

What it is: The Suburban full-size SUV is a longer version of the Chevrolet Tahoe, and it can seat up to nine people in three rows. Its GM siblings are the more upscale GMC Yukon XL and even ritzier Cadillac Escalade ESV. Rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are available, and all are powered by a 5.3-liter V-8 engine. The Suburban competes with other full-size SUVs such as the Ford Expedition EL and Toyota Sequoia.

New for 2017
GM’s Teen Driver monitoring system, which allows parents to view vehicle stats such as the maximum speed achieved, distance driven and the number of times active safety features were triggered, is standard. The Premier trim level replaces the LTZ model and includes heated and ventilated front seats finished in perforated leather.

Low-speed forward automatic braking is a new option and the available rear-seat entertainment system adds HDMI and USB ports and supports device projection. The MyLink multimedia system adds the Rear Seat Reminder feature while new active grille shutters improve highway aerodynamics.

I’ve had this vehicle for 4 years 2017 suburban

First year in the ac broke 3times and fully had to be replaced ! 2nd year of having vehicle the BRAKES locked up and stopped working properly . 4th year the engine motor mounts are bad . I have 55,000 miles currently into my 4th year . I can’t help but feel like they built this car like crap ! What else will go wrong . So while I’m paying monthly to own my vehicle I’ll be stuck making repairs . My Neughbor has same year in the Tahoe and had replaced her transmission and complete ax system already . Scary !

Transmission shot and left us stranded.

Worst experience ever owning this 2017 suburban. Purchased car brand new! Beautiful car- then brake issues. Pushing the brakes with your entire body so you don’t hit the car infront of you was a nightmare. Brake pump had to be replaced due to recall. 79,000 miles and transmission starts acting strange on highway drive. Transmission completely shot and left us stranded on side of road on a Sunday of course. Never will buy a Chevy again. Very disappointed. Will pay extra for a Toyota or BMW/Mercedes. My 17 year old BMW has over 179,000 miles and still going strong!

A great family car

This full size sport utility vehicle is everything that my family would need, and more! The legroom for all passengers is phenomenal. The space behind the third row is unbeatable.
