World Class Performance from a Robust Powertrain
Before deciding to take a Suburban home, you understandably need to learn about its performance capabilities. The primary powertrain that is loaded into all trims is a gas-powered V8, EcoTec3 5.3-liter engine with an aluminum block, direct fuel injection, variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management. It can generate up to 355 horsepower combined with 383 pound-feet torque. An alternative is a more powerful 6.2-liter variant of the base powertrain. The 2019 Suburban also comes with a standard 6-speed transmission or an upgraded 10-speed transmission with higher trims. Additional features in the Suburban include magnetic ride control, an optional suspension air leveler, a Premium Smooth Ride suspension system, 4-wheel ABS, an engine block heater, a limited-slip rear differential and an integrated trailer brake control. Test driving the 2019 Suburban is a smart way to compare performance capabilities for the powertrains and optional equipment.
