More than 77 Years of Getting the Job Done

Suburban has a long-standing reputation as the go-to vehicle for active American families. For more than 75 years, Suburban has maintained its reputation for spacious room and legendary capability. So pack it up, load it in and get out there.

It was the world's first SUV and has continued to pave the way through its rich history into today's modern comforts. Suburban 1/2-Ton offers a long list of advanced safety and convenience features. To put it simply, Suburban does not compromise.


Solid Good Looks

With its iconic rugged lines and solid bearing, Suburban 1/2-Ton has always been an unmistakable member of the Chevy family. And that strength isn't just for looks: This is a full-size vehicle that can handle what you throw its way.

Let Suburban Do the Work

Suburban works hard, but you don't have to. Loading and unloading are convenient and easy with the power liftgate standard on LTZ and available on LT1. Streamline the look on LTZ with the available power-retractable assist steps with chrome accent strips.

Z71 Off-Road Suspension Package

Adventure is waiting for you, and Suburban 1/2-Ton can get you there. Features of the available Z71 Off-Road Suspension Package include 18-inch aluminum wheels with on-/off-road blackwall tires, monotube shocks and wheel flares, Skid Plate Package, recovery hooks, tubular assist steps and chrome grille inserts.


The Room You Need, The Amenities You Want

Suburban's interior is large enough to accommodate up to nine passengers (in LS) and best-in-class 137 cu. ft. of maximum cargo2. Plus, enjoy convenience features like the standard Driver Information Center, which provides you with important readouts of vehicle functions like engine oil life, tire pressure3, fuel range and mileage, and comfort features like a heated steering wheel, standard on LTZ.

Convenience That Works

Convenient amenities like power-adjustable pedals, remote vehicle starter system and Rear Parking Assist already come standard on LT and LTZ. Or opt for the available Convenience Package on LS and still get it all.

Total Climate Control

Tri-zone manual (LS) or automatic (LT, LTZ) climate controls feature individual climate settings for driver, right-front passenger and rear passengers. Heated and cooled, perforated leather-appointed 12-way power front bucket seats provide added comfort in LTZ, and include two-position driver memory, and driver and passenger power recline and lumbar support.


True Utility

With 320 horsepower and 335 lb.-ft. of torque under the hood, the Vortec™ 5.3L V8 engine gives you up to 8,100 lbs. of towing muscle4 to add to the 137.4 cu. ft. of maximum cargo space5.

Active Fuel Management Technology

Active Fuel Management™ technology delivers power when you need it and conserves it when you don't. When you're driving on level roads, the system automatically deactivates four of the eight cylinders. It then reactivates all cylinders when you accelerate or travel on inclines.


Popcorn Not Included

Keep passengers entertained with a rear DVD entertainment system, available on LT and LTZ, which has two overhead screens—one for the second row and one for the third row—four sets of wireless headphones, input jacks and a remote control. Entertain yourself with the available Bose Centerpoint® ten-speaker Surround Sound system that includes a subwoofer center channel speaker located in the center of the instrument panel. Standard on LTZ (nine-speaker system standard on LT).

Bluetooth® Wireless Technology

Take calls with the touch of a button. Bluetooth wireless technology8 for select phones lets you make, answer and end phone calls with a tap of the steering wheel. It even mutes the stereo to take your calls.

Rear Vision Camera

The available rear vision camera7 helps you see behind the vehicle more clearly. The camera displays what's directly behind you in the rearview mirror or available touch screen navigation radio.

SiriusXM Satellite Radio8

Enjoy three trial months of commercial-free SiriusXM Satellite Radio9 from coast to coast plus an additional nine trial months if you choose an All-Star Edition. See channel listings and more info.

Mobile Apps

Stay connected to your Suburban with the myChevrolet8 app with the connectivity of OnStar RemoteLink™ 10. Check diagnostics, contact roadside assistance, schedule routine maintenance and more. Available from the iTunes Store, Google Play, and Blackberry App World.

Turn-by-Turn Navigation

Put wrong turns behind you with OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation11, standard for the first six months. Get upcoming turns and street names displayed on the radio and hear directions from the automated voice. Take a complete tour of OnStar capabilities.

USB Port

To keep connected to your music wherever you go, plug your MP3 player or a music-loaded flash drive directly into the USB port12. Then it's easy to manage your music through the stereo controls. It even charges your player while you listen.


Full-Size Safety

There's a lot riding in your Suburban. That's why it includes some of the latest safety technology to help keep you safe on the road. Advanced electronic systems, coupled with engineering characteristics like a safety cage, work together to help prevent collisions, and to help protect you if you're in one. It's comprehensive safety before, during, and after a collision.


The StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control and four-wheel anti-lock brakes help you stay in control in slippery road conditions, and Proactive Roll Avoidance engages automatically to help reduce the risk of a rollover crash. The standard Tire Pressure Monitor3 is designed to let you know when tire pressure levels are less than optimal.


Suburban is equipped with six standard air bags13 for the driver, right front passenger and outboard rear occupants, and a steel safety cage to help preserve occupant space in the vehicle.


OnStar® Automatic Crash Response11, standard for the first six months on all Suburban models, means you can be automatically connected to emergency assistance if an collision occurs—whether or not the air bags deploy.
