Chevrolet is famous for manufacturing large pickup trucks and suburban type vehicles. There is no doubt that the company makes sure that their vehicles deliver the highest level of quality and are quite powerful as well. The latest addition to the Chevy fleet is the 2015 Suburban. This SUV is beautiful and laced with topnotch features.

The 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is an absolute beast. It has a powerful engine and offers extensive cargo space. It is quite economical to maintain and it gives a great gas mileage for its size. Considering it is one of the oldest available SUV brands in the market, it continues to intrigue customers without fail. With the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, the company has exceeded all expectations. Let’s look at the all new 2015 Chevy Suburban in detail:

Engine Specifications

The best thing about any Chevrolet vehicle is the engine. The engine of the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is powerful and while it may appear to be a gas gulper, it is in fact quite economical. This massive SUV is equipped with a V-type engine with eight cylinders. The capacity of this engine is 5.3 liters. One can only imagine the power this engine will deliver. However, the most impressive aspect of this engine is not the power it delivers, but the amount of gas it consumes.

Engine Performance

There is no surprise that the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban’s engine delivers immense power. The massive 5.3-liter V-8 can dish out 355 ponies at a mere 5,600 RPM. If you think this is impressive, you should consider its torque rating. This engine is rated to produce 382 pounds of torque per feet at only 4,100 RPM. The engines across all variants of the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban have the same specifications. They run on gasoline and ethanol, which is a great feature.

However, the best feature of the engine is the gas mileage. If you are driving within city limits, you will get no less than 16 miles to a gallon. On the highway, you can expect nothing less than 23 miles to each gallon. So, it would be safe to say that the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is the perfect combination of power and economy.

Transmission Options

The transmission variant across all trims of the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is similar. The transmission is a 6-speed auto. This transmission is electronically controlled and is paired with an overdrive mode. In addition to the overdrive mode, you will also find a tow/haul mode. This makes it easy for you to drive this vehicle if you are carrying cargo or towing a load.

Interior Styling

Once you get a glimpse of the interior of the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, you are bound to fall in love with it. Each and every aspect of the interior boasts sophistication. The most important aspect of the interior is the seats and they are extremely comfortable. The entire dashboard is covered in soft leather and so is the center console. The instrument panel is fancy, yet elegant. There are separate analogue displays for fuel, oil pressure, temperature and current. Right below these displays are the RPM and speedometer. The steering feature console controls music which is an added advantage. If you want extended cargo space, you can always fold the rear seats. If you put the seats up, you can seat up to 8 passengers comfortably.

Exterior Design

Over the years, Chevrolet has not made significant design changes to the Suburban brand. But the company more than compensates for the looks with innovative features. The 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, features new headlamps and a massive chrome grille which gives it an aggressive appearance.

All in all, the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban is a great family ride. With the new model, you not only get a fresh look but topnotch features as well.
