The new generation of Chevy’s legendary SUV arrived a few months ago, so predictions about the next year’s model are quite easy to make. As we are talking about a very fresh model, which has brought a lot of improvements over the previous generation, it’s quite obvious that the 2022 Chevy Suburban won’t feature much bigger changes. However, we can hear rumors that suggest novelties in terms of performance version, though they don’t suggest which kind of performance version we could see. Some believe it could wear the Z71 badge and come as an off-roader. Others speculate about the 2022 Chevy Suburban SS, about the revival of the legendary performance badge.
In any case, standard models will carry on in the same way. You may count on a design that has been introduced last year and which has a lot of great things to offer. You may count on one of the most spacious cabins on the market, as well as on a long list of standard features. Furthermore, the infotainment system is pretty good, while the engine offer includes three capable options. We expect to see it sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2022 Chevy Suburban Design
Since we are talking about a pretty fresh model on the market, there is no doubt that the 2022 Chevy Suburban will continue in the same way. The recent redesign has brought a lot of improvements, starting from a new platform that saves a lot of pounds and also brings an independent rear suspension, which has a big impact on the ride quality. Visually, the new model looks way better, especially because of the new front face, which closely resembles the new Silverado 1500.
When it comes to the possible addition of the 2022 Chevy Suburban Z71, we would expect to see upgrades in terms of off-road hardware. This refers to suspension, higher ground clearance, skid players and other goodies typical for this kind of vehicle. On the other side, the “SS” badge would lead us in the completely opposite direction, making this SUV a street performer.
Changes on the inside definitely won’t come. The 2022 Chevy Suburban will continue in the same way, offering one of the most spacious cabins around. There are three extremely spacious rows of seats, so it’s no wonder that this SUV accommodates eight adult passengers with ease. The cargo area is even more impressive. You may count on 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 of the total volume. No other SUV offers such numbers, except for the Suburban’s sibling GMC Yukon XL.
Besides plenty of space, this cabin also offers a nicely designed dashboard, which offers attractive aesthetics and really fine materials. Furthermore, the long list of tech goodies makes everything look even more opulent.
This aspect shouldn’t bring any bigger change and most of the things should remain the same. Therefore, the list of standard features should include goodies like keyless entry, tri-zone climate control, a 10.2-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, eight USB ports, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, HD Radio, satellite radio, and six speakers, 120V power outlet etc. Additionally, you can get goodies like a sunroof, a navigation system, nine- and 10-speaker stereos, wireless device charging, a rear-seat entertainment system with two 12.6-inch touch screens etc.
When it comes to safety and driver-assistance features, all models will come standard with 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.
2022 Chevy Suburban Engines
If we exclude the possible performance version, surprises under the hood are not expected. So, base models will continue with a well-known 5.3-liter V8, which delivers 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Another well-known V8 unit will be in the offer. Of course, we are talking about a 6.2-liter unit, which puts out around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is the recently-added diesel option. The 2022 Chevy Suburban diesel will continue with a 3.0-liter V6, which is good for about 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. All three engines come in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission. When it comes to fuel economy, the base engine returns around 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
2022 Chevy Suburban Release Date and Price
The 2022 Chevy Suburban release date should be scheduled for the end of the year. When it comes to the price, the base model starts at around 52.500 dollars and we don’t expect to see a bigger increase. Of course, Ford Expedition Max is the key competitor, but there are also models like Toyota Sequoia, as well as the upcoming Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
