More SUVs have shifted to crossover status, but there are still plenty of drivers in Florence and Cincinnati who demand the capabilities, looks, and dimensions of a traditional, full-size SUV. The 2016 Chevrolet Suburban has long been a go-to in this segment, and it remains a top contender with its standard V8 performance, spacious seating, and well-appointed cabin. The 2016 Dodge Durango is another attractive option, but it doesn’t live up to the standards set by the Suburban. Get the full scoop before testing the Chevrolet SUV at Tom Gill Chevrolet.

Performance Specs

If you’re looking for the vehicle that produces more power from the start, then the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban is your pick.

  • 2016 Chevrolet Suburban: The standard engine on the Suburban is a 5.3L V8 that puts out 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. This power can be delivered to the rear wheels or to all four via a four-wheel drive system. Properly equipped, this full-size SUV can tow up to 8,300 pounds.
  • 2016 Dodge Durango: The base engine on the Durango is a 3.6L V6 that only puts out 290 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. This model is offered with rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, as well. There’s also a commanding 5.7L V8 engine available, but the model’s non-truck-based crossover status prevents it from towing more than 7,400 pounds even when properly equipped.

Passenger and Cargo Space

If you’re looking for more flexibility inside the cabin, then the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban has plenty to offer. It boasts three different seating arrangements that provide seating for seven, eight, or nine passengers. You’ll also get an impressive 39.3 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space in back. Meanwhile, the 2016 Dodge Durango is only offered with a single, seven-passenger setup. In addition, you’ll only have 17.2 cubic feet dedicated for cargo.


The SUVs come standard with Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, tri-zone climate control, and18-inch alloy wheels. Unlike the 2016 Dodge Durango, though, all 2016 Chevrolet Suburban models get Apple CarPlay smartphone integration via the Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen interface, the OnStar telematics system with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, satellite and HD radio, and power adjustable driver and front passenger seats. While some of these features can be added at an extra cost on the Durango, no version of the Durango is offered with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection.
