The recently redesigned SUV has everything a red-blooded American family can ask for. Armed with an 8,300-pound towing capacity, the Suburban is ready to tow a boat to the lake or an Airstream to the nearest campground.
“The 2015 Suburban has every creature comfort the modern family needs for a long haul,” says director of Chevrolet Marketing, Sandor Piszar. “With some of the most state-of-the-art technologies available in the industry, the Suburban is sure to give everyone something to do mile after mile.”
If your load doesn’t require a trailer hitch, you have up to 121.1 cubic feet of cargo space. If your needs are more about people than stuff, the Suburban offers plenty of seating configurations, including a folding second row and 60/40 split rear row.
For those in for the long haul, you will like the personal entertainment features with wireless headphones so you can be distracted by the available AM/FM or satellite radio, 9-inch LCD video screens (which can handle Blu-Ray media), or media devices synced through the optional MyLink system via a Bluetooth connection—even media connected to built-in USB ports or SD card slots! Rear-seat passengers also have a composite plug-in in the center console to play a game system through the overhead video screens. Twelve power outlets, including several 110-volt three-prong outlets, can keep your game system (or cell phones and tablets, for that matter) fully charged.
Plus, Chevrolet will offer OnStar 4G LTE starting this fall. Chevy says the in-car Wi-Fi hot spot is good for connecting up to seven devices and has a range of 30 feet outside of the vehicle for “as little as $5 per month.”
The Suburban’s 80th birthday falls on 2015, yet its state-of-the-art technology and incremental improvements mean the big SUV is looking great for its age.
