Arguably the oldest SUV.The 2015 Chevrolet Suburban has capacity only matched by pick up vans. From its nickname “Burb” in its 1935 hey days, the burb still can’t afford to disappoint its loyalist. Fast forward to 2015, General Motors still maintains a purist and traditional approach to its brand. In this edition, the car still boasts power, towing capabilities and a little bit of space creation.
2015 Chevrolet Suburban review
This car is centred on three major areas when it comes to its performance, namely functionality, cargo space and comfort. Its key is offering the versatility of cargo space and passenger space mutually exclusively. Its most dominant feature is its dominant power release second row and its power fold third row seats that create cargo space. This cargo space can equally be converted to passenger seats increasing the number up to eight.
It has a small long wheel base of 130 inches and its length is 220inches.This makes it slightly longer than its predecessors.
Contrary to its conservative exterior, the interior is suave and highly sophisticated. Boasting of six usb ports, twelve charging stations, and touch screen interface controls, its Chevrolet My Link+ and Navigation + serve to make the driving experience convinient.Its 8 inch LCD touch screen, has voice control to ask for directions this gives information on real-time updates on traffic and weather.
Engine of 2015 Chevrolet Suburban
It has meagre 5.3L compared to the expected 6.2L of its counterparts like the 2015 Yukon Denali. Its v-8 engine has 355 horse powers. Having a six speed automatic transmission to the four wheels. However, this makes the 2015 version more powerful than the previous model. It has a 383 –pound for feet torque. Its acceleration is also of note. Of note is the seamless transition of the engine during drives, between the V8 mode and v4 mode without any physical manifestations such as sound or vibration.
The standard cylinder and direct fuel injection makes it amongst the most fuel efficient in its class. The electrical power steering is also attributed to reducing fuel consumption.
Leaf spring designed suspensions, majorly are found in the car’s rear, but customised magnetic ride control are equally available. Partly due to its strong frame it has a big towing ability of 8500 pounds.
The front-centre airbag newly incorporated in GM cars offers safety in cases of collision.
For a car with the kind of appearance it has it has technology to keep it from crushing like the lane detection system, forward collision alert and blind spot monitors.
