The eleventh generation of Chevy Suburban model is now entering its final phase; so the new 2019 Chevrolet Suburban will probably represent the last model year of the current generation. This means that the GM’s full size SUV should receive some minor changes this time and for a complete overhaul, we will have to wait for a year 2020 or even 2021.
The last year’s model has undergone some mild changes including a new RST Package which brought some upgrades to the engine and interesting exterior refreshments. So for this time, there won’t be any significant upgrades but small updates considering almost every segment of the vehicle. Therefore, we will probably see changes inside the cabin which will include more color combinations, one or two new ones and most likely minor upgrades of the equipment. Furthermore, latest rumors claim that it will appear with the all new infotainment system too. The exterior should be revised with few new color shades as well. As for the engine, there won’t be any changes except perhaps a new transmission.
The new Chevy should be available in the same trim levels as before. Those are LS, LT and Premium models. Its main rivals on the market will be GMC Yukon, Toyota Sequoia and Ford Expedition.
2019 Chevrolet Suburban engine and performance, possible new transmission
Speaking of the powertrain, the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban will continue with the same unit as the current model. So, it will get a 5.2-liter V-8 unit. This engine has the output of 355 horses and 383 pound-feet of torque. It will be paired with a standard six-speed automatic gearbox. However, latest rumors say that it should receive a new GM’s 10-speed automatic transmission but this information is not yet confirmed. The rear-wheel drive system should remain standard while the all-wheel drive should be available too. Its maximum towing capacity will be up to 8500 pounds as before.
Moreover, some sources claim that it might also get more powerful 6.2-liter V-8 unit with the output of 420 hp and 460 pound-feet of torque. However, we will have to wait for the Company’s official announcement for more info.
Design of exterior and interior
Like we have previously said, the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban won’t be redesigned and it will keep the same muscular and powerful appearance of its predecessor. The only innovation we can expect for the 2019 year model will be an addition of the one or maybe two new colors for the exterior.
When it comes to the interior design, the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban will add new color combinations too. But, the general design of the interior will stay pretty much the same. Furthermore, this time we will see the new MyLink infotainment system and some upgrades considering tech features.
Release date and price
The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban should arrive next year. It will most likely be sometime in the third quarter of 2018. When it comes to pricing, we believe that it won’t differ much from the price of the current model which starts at around $51,000.
