2020 Chevy Suburban: Diesel Engine, Specs & Release Date
Soon, we are going to see Suburban newest iteration: the 2020 Chevy Suburban. What will the upcoming Suburban look like? What kind of engine and features will it have? When will it be released? If you want to know, just read on. We will tell you a possible redesign, engine, safety, release date, and price.
Update: The 2020 Chevrolet Suburban already available at the dealership. You can purchase this full-size SUV for around $51,700 for the LS trims.
2020 Chevy Suburban Redesign & Updates
The Suburban as a lineup is interesting in its exterior and interior design. On the one hand, the exterior looks handsome, fitting for an SUV of its size. On the other hand, the interior of the Suburban is car-like.
The 2020 Suburban is unlikely to move away from this formula. We don’t think it is needed, either. Changing things that are already good can be counterproductive, something which a manufacturer wants to avoid.
Unlike many SUVs in the market, the Suburban lineup is known for its old-style exterior. While many lineups are becoming a crossover SUV, Suburban keeps its big, truck-like exterior. You can say that the Suburban lineup is anti-crossover. The lineup has been using this formula for years. We are unlikely to see major redesigns that will change this formula.
So, expect the 2020 Suburban to retain the looks of its predecessor still. We expect Chevrolet to give the 2020 model some updates and changes here and there that will redefine the look. It should get a more refined look and even sharper styling fitting for a 2020 SUV.
The Suburban is a large SUV. Uniquely enough, it has a car-like interior. Just as the exterior, we expect the 2020 Suburban to retain the same formula. The interior will provide a comfortable ride for every passenger inside.
In terms of features, the Suburban lineup is always well-equipped. As such, the 2020 Suburban is likely to be the same. The 2020 Suburban is likely to come with features such as cloth upholstery, tri-zone climate control, power-adjustable seats, an excellent audio system, smartphone compatibility (both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), and more.
Like its predecessors, the 2020 Suburban will come in three trim levels: LS (the base trim), LT, and Premier. Of course, the higher the trim levels, the better quality, and more features will be available. There will be packages that offer additional features as well.
2020 Chevy Suburban Diesel Engine Specs
The Previous Chevy Suburban comes with 2 engine options: a 5.3L V8 engine and a 6.2L V8 engine. Since these engines are more than enough to handle the task thrown at them, we don’t see the 2020 Chevy Suburban will have different engines. So, expect the same engine options for the 2020 model.
The 5.3L V8 is the base engine. While it is the base engine, it doesn’t mean it is not powerful. On the contrary, it is quite a powerful engine in its class. This engine is capable of generating an output of up to 355 horsepower with 383 lb-ft of torque. It will be paired with a six-speed auto transmission gearbox. Also, four-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive are available. The fuel economy of this engine is 15 mpg (city), 22 mpg (highway), and 18 mpg (combined).
The more powerful 6.2L V8 engine, on the other hand, is optional. It is capable of generating up to 420 horsepower with 460 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be paired with a 10-speed auto transmission gearbox. Just as the base engine, both four-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive are available. The fuel economy of this engine is 14 mpg (city), 20 mpg (highway), and 16 mpg (combined).
While it is very likely that the same engines will power the upcoming Chevy Suburban as its predecessor, we hope Chevrolet gives them some updates and tweaks here and there to make it more powerful and efficient.
The Suburban lineup has a lot of safety features. The latest iteration, the Current Chevy Suburban, comes with various safety features. We expect the 2020 Suburban to carry out these safety features and, at most, get some improvements and come with more features.
The Suburban has safety features such as multiple airbags (including center airbag), anti-lock brakes, and stability control as its standard. There are also high-beam headlights (automatic), active lane control, and low-speed emergency braking, albeit they are available on additional packages.
The 2020 Chevy Suburban should come with the safety features above. Hopefully, it is safer to drive than the Current Model. While the Current Model Year is quite safe already with various safety features as standard, it lacks a safety test score. In this case, we hope the 2020 Suburban is different from its predecessor.
2020 Chevy Suburban Release Date and Price
We don’t know yet when the 2020 Chevy Suburban will be released. That being the case, we expected it to enter the market somewhere in 2019. It may even enter the market in early 2020, but we think it is unlikely since it is meant to be a 2020 model.
While the manufacturer doesn’t say anything regarding the price, we can use the Current Suburban price as a reference. After all, a new model’s price is likely to be in the same range as its predecessor. Of course, a slight increase is expected. The price range of the Current Suburban is between $50,600 and $68,300. The price range of the 2020 model is likely to be in this range as well.
In summary, the 2020 Chevy Suburban will get redesigns, but it will not change the SUV’s overall look. In fact, we expect it to look very similar to the Current Suburban, albeit the 2020 Suburban is likely to have a more defined look fitting for a 2020 model. If you are interested in this SUV, you need to be patient just a bit. It will come soon.
