Suburban - 5 Generations

The original Chevrolet Suburban Carryall debuted as a 1935 model. Based on a Chevy pickup truck chassis, it wore a two-door steel wagon body, could seat eight, and had a 60-horsepower, six-cylinder engine. It cost $675. Over the years, the Suburban has evolved dramatically while remaining remarkably close to its truck-based wagon origins. Features we take for granted today, like an automatic transmission, didn’t join the options list until 1955, while factory air conditioning was first offered in 1965. In 1967, Chevy introduced an unusual three-door design with a single driver-side door and front and rear doors on the passenger side. The 1973 model was the first to have four doors. The Suburban was redesigned again for 1992, 2000, 2007, 2015 and 2021. The current Suburban is the 13th generation of Chevy’s full-size SUV.

2021 Suburban

Redesigned in 2021

The 2021 Chevrolet Suburban has been redesigned with two key things in mind: interior room and cargo space. With seating for up to nine across three rows, the Suburban has long had a reputation for being a capable people-mover. Now, with a 4.1-inch-longer wheelbase, the 2021 Suburban carves out even more space for second- and third-row passengers. A new independent rear suspension is standard, and an adaptive air suspension is available. The standard engine is a 355-hp, 5.3-liter V-8, but Suburban shoppers can upgrade to a 420-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 or a 277-hp, turbo-diesel 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder. All engines work with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

2015–2020 Suburban

Redesigned in 2015

The Chevrolet Suburban was redesigned for 2015 with sharper-edged styling and new convenience and connectivity features, while still offering seating for up to nine. Heavy-duty 2500 models were discontinued, but a new 355-hp, 5.3-liter V-8 returned an estimated 23 mpg on the highway in rear-drive models. The 2019 Suburban with the optional RST Performance Package added a 420-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 and 10-speed automatic transmission.

2007–2014 Suburban

Redesigned in 2007


Smoother styling marked the new 2007 Chevrolet Suburban, which arrived just as gas prices were headed to previously unthinkable heights. The 5.3- and 6.0-liter V-8s were paired to a four-speed automatic transmission, but a new six-speed unit debuted in heavy-duty 2500 models in 2008 and became standard in all Suburbans the next year. In 2010, Chevy offered a limited-production 75th Anniversary Diamond Edition model.

2000–2006 Suburban

Redesigned in 2000


The redesigned 2000 Chevrolet Suburban was available with new 5.3- and 6.0-liter V-8 engines. Later, the brawny Suburban 2500 could be ordered with an 8.1-liter “big-block” V-8. Starting in 2003, 2500s picked up a short-lived and pricey “Quadrasteer” four-wheel-steering option that helped make the full-size SUV more maneuverable.
