2020 Chevrolet Suburban Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban?

The Chevrolet Suburban is a full-size SUV that can seat up to nine people in three rows. The standard engine is a 355-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 that works with a six-speed automatic transmission. An optional 420-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 comes with a 10-speed automatic. Rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are available, and competitors include the Ford Expedition Max, Toyota Sequoia and the GMC Yukon XL, the Suburban’s GM sibling.

What’s New on the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban?

With a redesigned Suburban expected soon, there are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban Are Most Important?

A big cargo area offers plenty of space for a large family’s stuff, and the spacious passenger area offers room to stretch out. The driving position provides a commanding view of the road, and the Suburban can tow heavy loads on family adventures; when properly equipped, the SUV’s maximum towing capacity is 8,300 pounds.

Should I Buy the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban?

If you’ve got lots of people with a whole lot of gear to haul, it’s tough to beat the sheer acreage offered by the Suburban. There’s a downside to that, though; the Chevy’s size takes getting used to if you’re new to full-size SUVs. It also gets expensive when you move up to higher trims and start adding options. Fuel economy is about what you expect for a vehicle this size and weight; it’s thirsty, but so is the competition.

So far So good

by Philip Riggs from Georgetown,LA on September 11, 2020

The Chevy Suburban is a great vehicle. It just took me a few years to figure this out. The interior is very nice and the ride is smooth. Just added another Chevy to my family. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

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.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

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.

What is included in 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).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

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.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
