2021 Vs. 2020 Chevrolet Suburban

The Chevy Suburban holds the honor of being the oldest Chevy nameplate. It’s gained many devoted fans over the years, and even appeared in enough films to get its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Excitingly, each model of the Suburban tends to improve on the one before it.

Chevy kicks off an all-new generation for the model with the 2021 Chevy Suburban. The SUV is totally reinvented and sees significant improvements as a result. The latest Chevrolet Suburban has been described by reviewers as “bigger and better than ever.”

The new Suburban shares a lot in common with the likewise-redesigned Chevy Tahoe, which is no surprise; these models have always been close siblings.

New Suspension, Increased Size and Improved Interior Space

One major update is the first-ever independent rear suspension on a Suburban model. This design change allows for better interior packaging, freeing up additional room in both the cargo area and the third row. Such figures are also helped along by the fact that the 2021 Suburban is longer than the previous model.

How much more cargo and passenger room is now available? Whereas the 2020 Chevy Suburban got 121.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo room, the 2021 Suburban gets 144.7. That’s a substantial upgrade. Legroom is more subtly improved: there’s two additional inches in the third row, and nearly 2.5 more in the second.

The 2021 Chevy Suburban holds the title of being the biggest Chevy SUV. With its size and capabilities, it takes on other massive machines like the Ford Expedition Max.

Fresh Technology and Torque-Loaded Diesel Engine

In addition to the added length, the 2021 Chevy Suburban has more technology throughout. New gizmos include an air suspension and a downsized Duramax diesel engine.

This latter addition is lovingly referred to as Baby Duramax, and has already seen success in other GM models. When equipped, it blesses the 2021 Suburban with a beastload of torque; 460 pound-feet, to be exact.
