Buyers may or may not notice, but Chevrolet has upped the MSRP of its biggest SUV by $700 for the 2016 model year: the K2XX Suburban.
Shoppers will be asked to fork over $50,895 (plus $1,195 destination) for a base 2016 Suburban in LS trim, according to Edmunds. Step up to a mid-level LT model and you’ll be asked to shell out $55,925 (including shopping), a hike of $555 over the 2015 Suburban LT.
Meanwhile, buyers will have to dig deep for the LTZ model, which now stickers at $65,505, up $525 over a similarly equipped 2015. Ka-ching.
Thankfully, Suburban owners will get some added kit for their extra coin, like a reconfigurable gauge cluster, a head-up display (HUD), Intellibeam headlamps, Lane Keep Assist, a capless fuel-filler system, and more. Be sure to have a look at our full run-down for all the details.
While the 2016 Suburban does without the option of GM’s 6.2L EcoTec3 L86 V8 engine (its standalone engine option is the 5.3L V8), eight-speed transmission (the six-speed remains) or other features that higher-end GM SUVs enjoy, the MSRP hike remains relatively modest for the price.
We’re not sure if the price hike was well-timed, as sales for the Suburban were down by double digits in August 2015, and remain down year-over-year.
