The upcoming 2020 Chevy Suburban is the full-size SUV that offers great performances, spacious interior with plenty of modern features and attractive exterior design. However, Chevrolet is perfectly hiding the all-new model. With the latest spy shots emerged online, we can still see most of the exterior upgrades.
The forthcoming Suburban will arrive as the new-generation model. That means there will be plenty of changes. Even the upgrades under the shell are expected. Reliable sources are suggesting new independent rear suspension and new exhaust system.
2020 Chevy Suburban Spy Photos
The 2020 Chevy Suburban is a truck-based SUV and it will ride on the same platform as the GMC Yukon model. New independent rear suspension is available. Also, Suburban will be significantly lighter than its predecessor, thanks to the T1XX platform. The new-gen model will introduce plenty of exterior upgrades as well. However, the only source is the latest spy photos. Under the heavy camouflage, we can see new character lines and more aggressive design approach.
There will be numerous trim levels and upper trims are looking really premium. The base model comes with the standard roof rails, side steps and LED daytime running lights. A power liftgate is optional on the base and standard on higher trim levels. Premium models are offering a free-gesture-operated liftgate and 20-inch aluminum wheels as standard. Suburban will retain its current dimensions and the five-door configuration. If you want a shorter model, the 2020 Chevy Tahoe is the right choice.
Suburban to Get a New Independent Rear Suspension (IRS)
Next Suburban model will get the all-new Independent Rear Suspension. Chevrolet opted for such a radical move for numerous reasons. Unlike a regular SUV’s solid axle, new Suburban will look to copy the Ford Expedition model. Expedition SUV comes with the same suspension that is paired with a turbocharged engine. This will create another rivalry in the SUV segment, no doubt about it.
And while the solid axle provides good ride quality, independent rear configuration comes with more benefits. Of course, we are talking about regular-everyday use. Generally, both setups have drastically improved over the years. Automakers are actually trying to deliver something unique that will attract the customers. In our opinion, both setups will provide good handling and a comfortable ride.
When it comes to the interior, the 2020 Chevy Suburban will introduce numerous changes and refreshments. Perhaps the biggest highlight of the full-size SUV is its spaciousness from the inside. The new-generation model will arrive with the improved third-row configuration. Also, Chevrolet will likely introduce more luxury on the base model, which includes a new infotainment system. Comfort is improved too, and the cargo area is another impressive thing about the Suburban. This SUV is also available with the hidden storage area under the floor.
Under the hood, new-gen Suburban will arrive with the numerous engine options. Specifically, the North American Suburban will offer three engine choices. One of them is new diesel powertrain, but we’ll get to that later. The standard engine remains a 5.3-liter V8 that is producing 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. The RST Performance package will be available once again and it will offer a 6.2-liter V8 that can produce 420 horsepower. This unit will deploy a 10-speed automatic transmission, while the standard engine is offering an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
