2017 Chevrolet Suburban Performance

The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban performance features deliver the power, handling, and versatility Florence and Covington, KY drivers want, and the class-leading fuel efficiency they need in a world of ever-rising fuel costs. Explore the capable Suburban here, then drop by Tom Gill Chevrolet to see why Edmunds says “the Suburban is an eager partner in all kinds of outdoor adventures, and few vehicles deliver so much capability at this price point.” We think with one ride, you’ll also agree.

Chevrolet Suburban Specs

The capable Chevrolet Suburban has given drivers the power and capability they need to get the job done for more than 80 years, and with performance specs like these, that isn’t likely to change anytime soon:

V8 Engine

The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban is powered by a potent and responsive 5.3L Ecotec3 V8 engine with direct injection, active fuel management, and variable valve timing. This power plant is mated to a responsive, smooth-shifting 6-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission to produce as much as 355 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of peak torque.

Premium Suspension

Drivers can choose a premium smooth ride suspension package which is designed to isolate the cabin from shocks associated with rough roads, providing a more pleasing ride on even challenging terrain. For those who prefer increased power, an available suspension package adds increased capacity with an air leveler that keeps the vehicle from tilting under heavy load.

Magnetic Ride

The innovative Magnetic Ride Control suspension package adds next-generation dampening via electromagnetism to improve the vehicle’s responsiveness, adapting instantly to changing road conditions, enhancing traction, reducing vehicle body roll, and providing more precise steering, making it the ideal companion for both off-road adventure and pothole covered city streets alike.

Autotrac AWD

Drivers can opt for the state-of-the art Autotrac AWD system which, when properly set, reads the road and decides if 4WD is needed to provide additional traction and support on more challenging roads. Drivers can also opt to adjust the system manually, engaging 2WD or 4WD as needed to respond to changing road conditions.

Other Performance Features

Chevrolet didn’t stop with a powerful engine and responsive drivetrain.The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban offers much more for adventure-minded drivers who want a large SUV that can do it all:

  • Class-Leading Efficiency: The Suburban leads the pack in fuel economy, delivering an EPA-estimated 23 mpg/highway fuel economy when properly equipped.
  • Powerful Towing: The Chevy V8 engine provides superior towing capability, allowing drivers to hook up to a maximum of 8,300 pounds of cargo and take it where they please.
  • Braking Power: The Suburban’s 4-wheel anti-lock disc braking system provides superior control, allowing drivers to bring the big truck to a quick stop when it counts.
  • Locking Differential: For added traction, Chevy has equipped the Suburban with a heavy-duty locking differential, which keeps the wheels moving together to command the road when it matters most.
  • Trailer Brake Controller: An available integrated trailer brake controller helps to provide additional control to heavy loads sending immediate and measured braking force as needed.
  • Engine Block Heater: Ideal for drivers in colder climates, the optional engine block heater warms the block, allowing fluids to move freely faster, increasing power and reducing wear.
  • External Cooling: Auxiliary oil and transmission coolers help to keep fluids from overheating, allowing the Suburban to operate longer under heavy loads without unnecessary damage to internal components.

With all it has going on, it’s no wonder drivers have been so eager to add a Suburban to their garage for more than three-quarters of a century.
