With class-leading cargo and towing capacity, the Chevrolet Suburban 2500 has plenty of appeal for buyers who need superior utility in a full-size SUV.

Introduction

For people who need the capability of a three-quarter ton truck, combined with the passenger capacity of a full-size SUV little other than a Chevrolet Suburban 2500 will do. With the towing and hauling ability of a truck, combined with the featues you'd expect in a typical crossover, the three-quarter ton Suburban is the ideal passenger hauling device for people who demand a lot out of their vehicles. With top-of-the-class towing capacity and strong off-road credentials when equipped with four-wheel drive, the Suburban is tough to beat.

The Suburban 2500 comes standard with a 6.0-liter V8 producing 352 horsepower, 382 lb.-ft. of torque and mated to a heavy duty six-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive models can tow up to 9.400 lbs. The base LS comes standard with features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, seating for up to 9 passengers, automatic headlamps, power windows, locks with remote keyless entry, power mirrors, cruise control, tilt steering wheel, power front seats, three-zone climate control with air conditioning, and a six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth and OnStar and a USB input. The LT model adds leather upholstery, heated front seats, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, fog lights, roof rack and a locking rear differential. A four-wheel drive system with manual transfer case is available on both models.

The Ford Expedition EL has a nicer interior with better third-row accommodations and is less expensive, but has less power and can't tow as much as the 2500. The Toyota Sequoia offers even more power than the Suburban's 6.0-liter V8 and tows a respectable amount, but doesn't have the same interior space or hauling ability. The Nissan Armada is well priced and also has a strong 5.6-liter V8, but the interior is cheap and third-row is very small. The Mercedes-Benz GL350 has strong off-road ability, seating for 7 and a torquey diesel V6, but is more expensive and less spacious inside.

So the Suburban 2500 is pretty much unrivaled in the class of full-size SUVs with superior cargo capacity and hauling capabilities. It's not the last word on refinement and it remains cumbersome in city driving, but for people who love the Suburban for what it is, those flaws won't matter too much.
