2015 Chevrolet Suburban Walk Around


The basic shape of the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is familiar, but the skin is all new, with attention to aerodynamics as well as aesthetics. Alert Suburban-watchers will recognize the subtle distinctions between the new fascia and its predecessor, especially around the grille and headlights. That crease just below the window line, shared with the GMC Yukon, lends some interest to a profile that was previously slab-sided, the side mirrors have turn signal repeaters, and there’s a power option for the rear liftgate. Chevy also points out that while there is structural commonality, neither the Suburban nor the Tahoe share any sheetmetal with the Silverado pickup. Wheel options include 18-, 20-, and 22-inch choices.

Interior

The inner Suburban is all new, with improved materials, new seats, new (more legible, more attractive) instruments, and enhanced connectivity and infotainment via the MyLink system with an 8-inch color touch screen in the middle of the dashboard. You can’t get the new head-up display; GM reserves that for the GMC Yukon lineup. And the fancy High Country interior option that’s new this year with the Chevy Silverado isn’t available for the Suburban.

Leather trim is offered, but if you want the really posh furnishings you need a Yukon Denali. But leaving that aside, it’s hard to find fault with this new interior, even in the standard base model. A couple of upgrades merit mention. First, the design team invested substantial time and budget in noise suppression, making this (and the Yukon XL) just about the quietest rides in their class. Second, the rear rows fold flat, which wasn’t true in previous generations. And Chevy offers a power-folding option for the seatbacks, as well as the rear hatch.
