GM prepares a lot of novelties for the next year and one of the most interesting will definitely be the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Suburban. The new generation of the iconic SUV is about to come with tons of changes, especially in terms of mechanics and new design solutions. We are about to see some brand-new technologies, but the company also prepares new styling. The testing model has been spotted on the road but is still wears a camouflage.
However, we may presume it will have a lot in common with the recently redesigned Silverado pickup truck. All in all, the new 2020 Chevrolet Suburban should be a significantly tougher rival to the, currently, class-leading Ford Expedition XL, which came a couple of years ago with some pretty significant changes. In any case, the new Suburban is about to hit the market soon. Latest reports suggest this will happen sometime in the third quarter of the next year.
2020 Chevrolet Suburban Redesign
We know for sure that this redesign will bring tons of novelties. The 2020 Chevrolet Suburban will receive a complete makeover, starting from a new platform. Of course, we are talking about the T1 architecture, which came recently with the new Silverado, but will undeprint new Tahoe and GMC Yukon as well. In practice, this means that the new Suburban will be significantly lighter. We can expect from the new model to save around 300 pounds. Such weight loss will definitely have a positive effect on driving characteristics and overall performances, including better fuel economy as well.
Another important novelty for the next year will be an independent rear suspension. Latest reports suggest this will be a standard feature in the new model. It will bring a lot of improvement, mainly in terms of comfort, but also in terms of driving dynamics.
Of course, another thing that comes to mind is a new styling. The 2020 Chevrolet Suburban will be fitted to the company’s latest design language. Of course, this means a lot of similarities with the recently-introduced Silverado. The two models should feature pretty much the same front end, which would include new air curtains as well. To remind you, this feature doesn’t just have an impact on aesthetics but also brings benefits in practical aspects. It should increase air flow, which in practice means better aerodynamics, as well as more cool air for brakes.
The of the vehicle will keep pretty much the same shape. The 2020 Chevrolet Suburban carry on with its rugged appearance and typical wagon/SUV body layout. Of course, count on a new rear end as well, with new taillights, bumper and other parts. More details about the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban will be known soon, once the testing model takes off the camo.
2020 Chevrolet Suburban Interior
Many drivers appreciate Suburban’s huge size. One of the biggest benefits from it is generous interior space. There is no doubt that the new model will carry on in the same way, although we count on a completely new layout. This includes a completely new dashboard design as well. We are pretty sure it will be slightly different compared to the new Silverado. It should feature a little bit more stylish appearance, with more car-like lines.
Also, we count on an improvement in terms of materials quality, though we must say that the current model is also pretty decent in this aspect. Finally, count on a lot of new tech features, especially in terms of gadgetry and other tech goodies, as well as in terms of advanced driver aids.
2020 Chevrolet Suburban Engine
Latest reports suggest that the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban will continue with same engines in the offer. That means two well-known V8 units that power the current generation as well. Therefore, base versions will come with a 5.3-liter V8, which is good for 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Higher trims will come with a 6.2-liter unit, which delivers 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Also, count on a new 10-speed automatic transmission, though it will be offered in higher trims only.
As you probably heard, the new Tahoe will also come with a new turbo-four engine that delivers around 310 horsepower. A diesel version has been rumored as well. On the other side, the Suburban won’t have these engines in the offer.
Release Date and Price
The new 2020 Chevrolet Suburban is in the late stage of development. The testing model rides for some time and should take-off the camouflage soon. Once this happens, we will know that the launch is near. According to the latest reports, that will happen sometime in the third quarter of the year.
When it comes to the price, we don’t expect to see any significant changes compared to the current model, which features a starting price of around 51.000 dollars.
