The recent redesign of the iconic full-size SUV happened just recently and there is no doubt that the 2022 Chevy Suburban, which will represent the second production year, will come without more important changes. The new model looks great in all aspects and we have no doubt that bigger updates won’t happen in the next few years. Still, keep in mind that there are some rumors that suggest a hi-performance SS version for the next year, though the actual chances to see such a version are quite small.
All in all, you may count on an SUV, which offers plenty of interior space, strong and capable engines, as well as a quite long list of standard and available features. Since there are no significant changes to come, we expect that the launch date will be scheduled for the last quarter of the year.
2022 Chevy Suburban Redesign
This aspect definitely won’t bring changes. The 2022 Chevy Suburban will represent the second production year of the generation that rides on GM’s new T1 platform, which has brought improvements in nearly every aspect, compared to the predecessor. Of course, one of the things we should mention is the standard independent rear suspension, which has a significant impact on the ride quality. On the other side, notable weight reduction is highly beneficial in terms of efficiency.
When it comes to the possible SS version, we presume it would come with all kinds of upgrades. One of the first things that come to mind is the suspension setup, which would be stiffer and sportier. Naturally, we would expect to see styling upgrades that follow the model’s hi-performance character.
Changes on the inside shouldn’t come. The recent redesign has brought a completely new cabin design, which looks amazing in every aspect. The overall quality is great, starting from materials, precision etc. The long list of tech goodies makes everything look even more upscale. Also, we really like the driver’s position, which is high and offers excellent visibility in all directions.
When it comes to the passenger space, there is a notable improvement over the previous generation. The first and second rows offer way over 40 inches of legroom, while the third row is also pretty impressive and can accommodate adults with ease. Still, the most impressive thing about this SUV is the cargo area, which is the biggest in the class. You may count on about 41.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third-row seats, 93.8 cubic feet with these seats folded, and 144.7 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded.
Yearly updates usually bring a couple of additions to the list of standard equipment but we don’t expect too many novelties from the 2022 Chevy Suburban. The current model is already equipped pretty well, as it comes standard with things like a 10.2-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, eight USB ports, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, HD Radio, satellite radio, keyless entry, remote start, tri-zone automatic climate control, two 120-volt household-style power outlets, and a manual liftgate. The list of options is also pretty impressive and includes things like a navigation system, nine- and 10-speaker stereos, wireless device charging, and a rear-seat entertainment system with two 12.6-inch touch screens.
When it comes to safety, things like a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, and the rear-seat reminder and Teen Driver systems are all standard. Additionally, you can get things like parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, a rearview mirror with an integrated camera display etc.
2022 Chevy Suburban Engines
This aspect of the 2022 Chevy Suburban definitely won’t change. Therefore, base models will continue with a 5.3-liter V8, which is good for about 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It returns around 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway and offers more than decent performances. If you are in need for more power, there is a 6.2-liter V8, which puts out around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. It offers notably better acceleration, but it is also a little bit thirstier. You may count on about 15 mpg in the city, while the highway economy is pretty much the same.
If you need something more efficient, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel is also a pretty good choice, with a max output of 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. All engines come in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2022 Chevy Suburban Release Date and Price
The 2022 Chevy Suburban will probably hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a base price of around 53.000 dollars. The Ford Expedition MAX is the key competitor, while there are also models like Toyota Sequoia and the upcoming Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
