Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban ranked #4 in Large SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Suburban has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 22 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Comfortable ride
Spacious, upscale cabin
Outstanding cargo space

Cons
Lower towing capacity than rivals
Generation earns subpar predicted reliability ratings
Lower safety score than rivals

The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is the ultimate weekend road-trip vehicle ready to haul nine people, their luggage, and even an 8,300 pound trailer. Try that in a crossover.

Pros
Upscale interior
Strong V-8 engine
Superlative towing ability
More fuel efficient than you might think

Cons
High cargo floor
Rides more like a truck than rivals
Expensive at every level
Throwback looks

By:

Unless you need the Suburban's nine-passenger configuration (which is only available on the base LS model), we recommend going with the midlevel LT trim. It comes with a substantial amount of standard equipment and is a solid pick as is. But we'd suggest getting the Luxury package to add some useful driver safety aids and a power liftgate.

Pros
Seating for up to nine passengers
Cargo capacity is generous
Strong V8 engine can tow and haul plenty of cargo

Cons
Maneuvering in tight spaces is challenging
High cargo floor means more effort to load objects
Lazy gas pedal response makes engine feel weaker than rated

By:

The 2018 GMC Yukon XL receives only minor changes. The Denali version comes with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that should slightly improve fuel economy and acceleration. Other changes include a new chrome grille design and a new Denali Ultimate package with 22-inch wheels, a sunroof and a large helping of tech add-ons.

pros
Seats up to nine passengers
Plenty of cargo capacity, even with all the seats deployed
Can tackle rough terrain when fitted with four-wheel drive
High towing ratings

cons
Size, weight and length make it unwieldy around town
Slow gas pedal response makes engine feel weaker than rated
Cargo space utility is limited by high load floor

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Safety alert driver's seat available
Quiet cabin
Spacious interior
Easier-than-expected maneuverability

Cons
Trucklike ride with body roll in corners
Small cargo space behind third row (regular-length Yukon)
Interior design too similar to Chevrolet siblings
Some dashboard buttons could be larger
