2018 Chevy Suburban

2018 Chevy Suburban

March 2, 2018

Chevrolet made some minor changes to the Suburban for 2018. Exterior color choices and interior color choices have changed slightly. And the Rally Sport Truck package is now available on two trim levels. The 2018 Suburban is still one of the biggest SUV’s available, but it’s not the best. It is a very good, large SUV, but there are a few others that are similar or better. If you’re in the market for a new full-sized SUV, do yourself a favor and test drive all of them before you buy. Here are the answers to some of the questions you might have on the new Chevy Suburban.


Does the new Suburban come with any active-assist safety features?


The new Suburban comes with a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and a Teen Driver system. The Enhanced Driver Alert Package is available for the LS trim for an additional $695. It includes Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Safety Alert Seat, IntelliBeam headlamps and Power-adjustable pedals. The LT and Premier trim come with Forward Collision Alert.


What are the available trims for the 2018 Suburban?


The 2018 Suburban is available in LS, LT and Premier trims.


What do you get with the Rally Sport Truck Package?


The RST Package, which is only available on the LT and Premier trims, includes some nice cosmetic upgrades and 22″ Gloss Black aluminum wheels. The cosmetic changes are black front and rear Chevrolet bowties, roof rails, beltline moldings, mirror caps and nameplate badging. It also includes a Gloss Black Sport grille with body-color surround as well as body-color door handles and headlamp accents.


How much does the 2018 Chevy Suburban cost?


MSRP on a two-wheel-drive 2018 Suburban LS is $51,495. A two-wheel drive LT starts at $56,695. The Premier trim in two-wheel drive has a starting price of $66,195. All three trims are also available with four-wheel drive for an additional $3,000.


Is the Suburban an eight-passenger SUV?


The Suburban seats seven or nine people, depending on which seats you choose. If you buy a Suburban with bucket seats in the back, it only seats seven. If you get bench seats, there’s room for nine. The front and second row of seats have plenty of room for full-sized adults to sit comfortably. The third row of seats isn’t quite as spacious, though. Adults can still sit in the third row without having their knees wedged up against the second row of seats, but there is a little less space.


How fuel-efficient is the new Suburban?


The 2018 Suburban gets 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Those are average figures for full-size SUV’s.


Does the new Suburban come with the latest infotainment system?


All three trim levels come with Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system with an 8″ color touchscreen. The Suburban Premier also comes with Navigation. The base trim has a six-speaker sound system. The LT comes with a Bose nine-speaker system, and the Premier comes with a Bose ten-speaker system.

OnStar 4G LTE with available Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth streaming audio are all included in the MyLink system. All trims also come with a USB port as well as 12-volt and 110-volt power outlets. An entertainment system for the rear seats can be added to the LT and Premier trims. It comes with 9″-screen Blu-Ray/DVD players, 2-channel wireless headphones, two USB ports, auxiliary input jacks and Wi-Fi wireless projection capability.


How much interior cargo room is there in the new Suburban?


When you fold down the second and third row of seats, the Suburban has 121.7 cubic feet of cargo space. If you just fold down the third row of seats, there are 76.7 cubic feet of space. There are 39.3 cubic feet of room behind the third row of seats.


Is the Chevy Suburban the best SUV available?


The Suburban is a very good SUV, but the Ford Expedition is considered number one in the full-sized SUV category. It gets slightly better gas mileage, features higher quality finishes in the interior and offers better performance than the Suburban. The Expedition also costs about the same as the Suburban.

Steadfast Chevrolet fans should consider the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon before deciding to buy a Suburban. The Tahoe is a slightly scaled-down version of the Suburban. It is the more reliable SUV, though, and it is less expensive by a few thousand dollars. The GMC Yukon is almost exactly the same as the Suburban, but the Yukon base trim is over $2,000 cheaper.


How many child seats can be secured in the Suburban?


The second row of seats has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors. There are three tether anchors in the third row of seats, but they don’t have the lower anchors.
