Lexington Chevrolet Shoppers Get A First Look At The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban
Checking out the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban at a dealership like the Lexington area Chevrolet dealership, Team Chevy in Salisbury, should be an event for many reasons. This large SUV is the longest continuous-use automotive nameplate in America, but it's now a genuine icon of the industry for many other reasons. Few vehicles can rival it as a highway-hauler, its passenger capacity is a minivan-beating nine people, and it can even haul trailers of up to 8,300 pounds. Is this the vehicle that can do just about anything? Let's take a closer look.
Some supposed rivals of the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban don't offer a great deal of choice to buyers when it comes to tailoring the vehicle to specific needs. At Team Chevy a Chevrolet dealer near Lexington, you can get three Suburban trim levels, along with ten exterior colors, nine interiors, twelve wheel designs and even a choice of powerplants for buyers to choose from. The trim levels available are the LS, LT and the top-of-the-range Premier, but that's just the start of the story.
Any vehicle as large and capable as the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban has to have a sizeable engine, but in this case we have two. The standard engine for all three trim levels is an excellent 5.3-liter EcoTec V8 developing 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, which comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The LS and LT trim level can't have that engine upgraded, but buyers choosing the top-level Suburban Premier can opt for an even more powerful V8. Adding the RST Performance or Premier Plus Special Edition Packages gets the Premier a 6.2-liter V8 which then puts a substantial 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque at the Suburban's disposal. It also means a transmission upgrade to a superb Hydra-Matic ten-speed automatic.
If you regularly have to haul a lot of people and cargo around, and you need to tow up to 8,300 pounds, a 2019 Chevrolet Suburban is one of the best and most affordable ways to do it, and in some considerable comfort at that. The standard cloth and the available leather seats are of very high quality, and it can be easy to forget this isn't technically a luxury model. Soft-touch surfaces and French stitching are to be found throughout the cabin, and the third-row seating is easily accessible, thanks to a power-folding second-row which boasts ample legroom for adults. Even with all the seats in place and in use, there's a massive 40 cubic feet of space for cargo behind the third-row, and that jumps to a very useful 77 cubic feet if the third-row is folded flat when not in use.
The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban is definitely a good value. As well as the inherent safety offered by such a substantial vehicle, the Suburban also has plenty of onboard safety technology. All Suburbans without a front bench seat, which is the majority of them these days, even include a center airbag to prevent front seat occupants from colliding in the event of a crash.
