Exploring the Width of the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban

Like any self-respecting SUV, the 2020 Chevy Suburban is large. Many find themselves wondering, just precisely how large is it- specifically, from one side to the other? How wide is the 2020 Suburban with mirrors?

Come down and measure the width of a 2020 Chevy Suburban yourself here at Carl Black Orlando!

The figure typically provided for the width of the 2020 Chevy Suburban is 80.5 inches. It’s not specified whether this width is referring to the 2020 Suburban with or without mirrors.

This measurement puts the 2020 Suburban right in line with other full-size SUVs. For example, the 2020 GMC Yukon XL is also 80.5 inches wide, while the 2020 Ford Expedition Max is 79.9 inches wide.

For next year’s redesign, the width of the Chevy Suburban will increase by 0.6 inches. That will give us a 2021 Suburban with a width of 81.1 inches.

Like its Tahoe brother, the 2021 Suburban will also offer a diesel engine option.

What are the strengths and weaknesses of a full-size SUV?

The expansive bulk of a full-size SUV admittedly means that maneuvering in tight spaces with the machine can be a bit tricky. However, give us a better vehicle for seating up to nine passengers and boasting a sizable cargo capacity, along with strong V8 engines that get the job done towing and hauling. We’ll wait.

Car-based crossovers may enjoy a more compact size, but they simply can’t carry the same volume of passengers (in delightfully roomy comfort) or tow more than 8,000 pounds. And some people need to do those things.

2020 Chevy Suburban Cargo Volume and Towing Capacity

Behind the rear seats, the 2020 Chevy Suburban boasts 39.3 cubic feet of cargo space. With those seats lowered, that space expands to a full 121.7 cubic feet. The machine also boasts a towing capacity of up to 8,300 pounds (when properly equipped).

Considering these figures, it’s easy to see why the Chevy Suburban remains the go-to full size SUV for those interested in towing, hauling or both.
