2016 Chevrolet Suburban exterior
Although the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban mainly retains its trademark look, the car has included many innovative features and new additions to its style of design. The car is massive and big as it ever was but has a new angular which is a completely different kind of styling. With a creased-and-pressed look the Suburban looks as a much modern vehicle and as it has a contemporary feel to it.
There are also some changes with the wheelbase as the new Suburban will have a 130-inch long wheelbase. It is also more than 220 inches long which also adds to some of the additions in spacing that are now available on the inside. It does not hurt to have a bit of a modern updated to the traditional kind of a car like the Suburban is, it will certainly attract more fans to the line and with a different kind of color setup this time it leaves you with more options than before.
The inside of the Chevrolet Suburban has been made to fit the characteristics of a modern SUV car. It has all the makings of a luxurious surrounding and makes it available for you to enjoy the ride as much as you need it to. Some great new additions are made with the addition of new materials within the seats. The environment on the inside can best be described as being suavely-sculptured. It has the best of both worlds, the technology and the comfort levels. The newly designed curved console interacts well with the completely different interior and complements it more than well. The touchscreen which is matted on it is useful and the audio controls are close as well. Within the LTZ models you will find a more upscale look as the comfort and the usefulness has been taken to a higher level there.
The Suburban gets the third row of seats as it was already present in the previous models, but these third row of seats are perhaps he best ones that have been added to the Suburban yet. With the increased and added spacing it makes it more comfortable than ever and the seats can also fold flat as you have the power folding version available as well. The second row of seats also includes more space and with the added front benchseat and second-row captain’s chairs, you have the ability to sat up to 9 people at once. The safety issues have also been enhanced and the Suburban is a much safer car now and with the added gadgetry to the higher trims of the car it is also a very modern one.
Under the hood the 2016 Chevy Suburban does not feature any changes compared with the current version. You will get the same 5.3-liter V-8 found engine, which is also found inside the Silverado vehicle. It provides you with 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque and it does so with combining the six-speed automatic transmission to a choice of both front-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive. This engine is quite strong and is an appropriate choice for the Suburban. It enables you safe passage through different kinds of terrains and promises great performance.
