The Chevrolet Suburban is the granddaddy of large SUVs, as it has been around for 12 generations. This latest version debuted for the 2021 model year and is perhaps the best one yet. It offers a choice of three powerful engines, a comfortable ride, and three rows of seating for up to nine passengers. It competes with the Ford Expedition, Jeep Wagoneer L, and its corporate cousin, the GMC Yukon XL. The Suburban also features a cavernous cabin that provides plenty of room for cargo and passengers.
The Suburban has numerous trim levels and features, but a standout item worth keeping an eye out for is the 6.2-liter V8. It offers more power than the base 5.3-liter and in Edmunds' testing surprisingly produces better real-world fuel economy numbers. For 2022, the 6.2-liter became more widely available across the lineup, and several active driver-assist features had been made standard. Additionally, the previous 10.2-inch screen on higher trims was upgraded to 12.3 inches.

Powerful brakes: When driving a vehicle this size, it is crucial to have confidence in an emergency stop. The Suburban scored highly during Edmunds' braking tests which would be impressive for any SUV, but was even more so for such a large three-row SUV. It felt confident and composed under hard braking.
Extensive interior: The Suburban delivers the interior space you'd expect from a large SUV. The cabin offers plenty of headroom and legroom in the first and second rows and adults can fit comfortably in the third row, provided they don't mind a rigid seating position.
Excellent cargo space: This is where the Suburban excels—it can hold practically anything you'd want to fit in your SUV. The rear cargo area has similar storage space as its competitors, but when you fold down that second row to fit larger items, it offers roughly 20 cu-ft more than the Ford Expedition Max.
Size demands constant attention: There's no getting around blind spots on a vehicle this size. You'll need to be attentive to the road at all times, as the Suburban is big and heavy. The rear of the vehicle will extend past your field of vision, so you have to be extra cautious when changing lanes. Big side mirrors help to some extent, but thick pillars can impede your vision, and the tall wide hood doesn't help matters in the front. Thankfully, surround and front-facing cameras are available, plus blind-spot warning.
