The Chevy Suburban has been around a long time. In fact, it is the longest-running, continuously produced vehicle in the United States. From its debut as the Suburban Carry-All in 1935 through today, this vehicle has been known as one of the largest, most capable, and most dependable SUVs on the market. All the while, the Suburban has remained on the cutting edge of technology, providing drivers with comfort, convenience, and safety features that make sense for a vehicle of its size and capacity. As a result, many drivers are eager to see what's new for the 2023 Chevy Suburban.
Recently coming off a full redesign in 2021, there aren't many mechanical changes to the 2023 Suburban. But that doesn't mean it's just more of the same. Instead, Chevy has taken the time to overhaul the software side of the vehicle, adding cutting-edge features from Google built-in to the revolutionary Super Cruise hands-free driving, making your driving experience more convenient. Overall, the 2023 Suburban looks really, really good for drivers who need equal parts size, fun, and function.
The Chevy Suburban has appealed to many drivers for many years for many good reasons. It comes equipped with all of the necessary features that make long driving distances with lots of passengers enjoyable. Safety is standard on the Suburban, which makes it an excellent choice for those who prioritize their passengers, as well as those who share the road around them. Furthermore, it comes equipped with a selection of engine options that help drivers achieve all of their work and play goals, with towing capacity worthy of a truck and an interior designed to truly "carry all."
The 2023 Chevy Suburban promises to be a vehicle packed with all of the necessities and more, allowing drivers with large families or large cargo needs––or both!––to get exactly what they wish for when hitting the road.
Many drivers select the Chevy Suburban because of its size. After all, there aren't too many full-size SUVs that provide ample seating room for up to nine passengers. But Chevy makes this three-row SUV different from a lot of other models on the market today by expecting each passenger to be a real human being who deserves a decent ride. The cabin of the 2023 Chevy Suburban continues this great tradition, providing plenty of creature comforts not just for the driver but for every person joining in this adventure.
That means that Chevy has brought out all of the comfort and convenience features that benefit drivers going a long distance with precious cargo. This includes a touchscreen that unlocks the Suburban's infotainment system, measuring 8 inches in the base LS trim or 10.2 inches in all other trims. Lauded for its intuitive usability and standard wireless connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, this system provides drivers with important apps and vehicle information without distracting them from the road ahead.
The 2023 Chevy Suburban is available in LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country trims, which means more and more comfort and convenience features will be unlocked as drivers climb the trims. Additional features––which may be added with Chevy's exclusive packages on lower trims––include built-in Google connectivity with a Wi-Fi hotspot, a premium Bose audio system, a panoramic sunroof, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument display. While critics may argue that the Chevy Suburban is roughly the size of a house, the 2023 Suburban will also have all of the comforts of home, no matter where the road takes you.
Safety has always been a top priority for drivers of full-size SUVs. Historically speaking, these vehicles have handled a bit differently than the average sedan. And since they are often used as family vehicles, it's easy to see why drivers would want the latest in safety and driver assistance features. Chevy delivers peace of mind with the 2023 Chevy Suburban.
Chevy Safety Assist driver assistance technology will continue to be offered on all models as standard equipment. For 2022, this includes Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking and Front Pedestrian Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and IntelliBeam automatic high beam headlamps. Other driver assistance features, such as blind-spot monitoring and a head-up display, are offered through additional packages and are standard on the higher trims.
One very exciting update in driver assistance technology for the 2023 Chevy Suburban is the addition of Super Cruise. This technology allows drivers to engage in hands-free driving over hundreds of thousands of miles of American highways. Using radar, cameras, and detailed lidar maps to gauge its surroundings––as well as infrared sensors to monitor driver attention––this technology has the ability to maintain appropriate speed, change lanes, and even work while towing a trailer behind the Suburban. Super Cruise will be standard on the 2023 Suburban Premier and High Country trims, allowing you to go hands free on long highway drives and arrive at your destination rested.
Altogether, the 2023 Suburban is engineered to provide utmost safety to everyone with whom you share the road. From creating a smooth, responsive drive that provides drivers with greater control to a suite of driver assistance technology that helps alert drivers to possible problems, Chevy has designed the Suburban with a level of safety technology that keeps drivers and families in mind.
Drivers select a full-size SUV because they need the size and capacity that these larger vehicles bring. Not only is the 2023 Chevy Suburban designed to accommodate up to nine passengers and all of their belongings, but it's engineered to provide plenty of power to make the drive pleasant.
Each Suburban provides a best-in-class maximum cargo capacity of 144.7 cu.ft. with the second and third rows folded. Even with all seats occupied, there's still 41.5 cu.ft. of space available for belongings, equipment, toys, and more. However, if your bring-alongs tend to be on the larger side, fear not––the 2023 Chevy Suburban also offers up to 8,300 lbs of trailering capacity. In fact, Chevy is embracing the Suburban's towing capacity by offering a towing package that includes up to 13 camera views, including a view behind the trailer, a picture-in-picture side view, and a "transparent trailer" view, which allows drivers to virtually see through the trailer to view the road behind them.
The standard power supply for this mighty beast is a 5.3L V8 engine, capable of 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. However, this is not the only option that drivers have at their disposal. The turbodiesel option that recently made its appearance in the Suburban lineup is available in the 2023 model, as well. This Duramax 3.0L inline-6 engine provides 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque and has quite the reputation for power and performance in the Chevy lineup.
Also available is Chevy's legendary 6.2L V8 engine. Equipped with dynamic fuel management technology and variable valve timing, this engine supplies the 2023 Suburban with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. For those who are worried about lag and slow acceleration, this engine should help quell those concerns with its venerable vroom.
All engines are joined by a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is the standard for all but the off-road-oriented Z71 trim, which includes a four-wheel drive system with a two-speed transfer case and low-range gearing for added traction. This complements the Z71's other off-road features, from skidplates to electronic limited-slip differentials, making it a serious adventure vehicle. A four-wheel drive system is offered as an option on all other trims of the 2023 Suburban.
