Since 1935, the Chevrolet Suburban has existed in one form or the other to date. This makes this model among the oldest in the field of SUVs and despite its long stay in the industry, the engineers and designers of this car have always found a way to make it retain its relevance in an otherwise cut throat competitive market. News about the release of the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban SUV have hit the airwaves and as much as the SUV that has been given a facelift, it has primarily gone back to the fundamentals like a big V8 engine, higher towing abilities and bigger shoulder chairs. However. there are a lot of other exciting things that it has to offer.
2016 Chevrolet Suburban SUV Engine
There will not be much change in the 2016 edition and it is expected that the same engine in the 2015 edition will be carried over to the Chevrolet Suburban SUV 2016. This is a 5.8L V-8 powertrain that comes with direct injection as well as cylinder deactivation. The engine is expected to put out about 355 horsepower and 383 pounds of torque per foot.
However, with the changes in the chassis, this will be able to perform much better. There will be a second trim available that will be a 6.2 liter V-8 capable of 420 horses and both of these will be mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission.
Chevrolet Suburban 2016 Fuel consumption
While these details are yet to be released it is expected that comparing this to the 2015 model that is able to do 16mpg on the highway and 23 in the city, the 2016 model with its lighter weight will be expected to do much better than this.
2016 Chevrolet Suburban Exterior
Aside from getting a face lift, the 2016 model has also had some vital changes. The hood and the tail gate are now made from aluminum and the chassis has been made from lighter materials hence helping the car to shed at least 250 pounds. It also has a better aesthetic look with a more aerodynamic design owing to the creasing and pressing that has been done to the body.
