Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Chevrolet Suburban ranked #3 in Large SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Suburban has a score of 7.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Two potent V8 engine choices
Upscale interior
Cavernous cargo space
User-friendly features

Cons
So-so third-row space
Harsh ride over uneven pavement

By:

The 2020 Suburban offers great tow capacity and a muscular optional V-8 to make it a comfortable beast of burden with room for a Little League team. It can be fitted with a package that gives it some decent off-road chops or dressed up almost like a luxury SUV—at which point it is priced like one. It's definitely not made for tight parking lots, however, nor for passing by gas stations.

Pros
Good tow capacity, muscular optional V-8, cavernous interior.

Cons
A handful to park, expensive to fuel, it's easy to balloon the sticker price.

By:

The 2020 Chevrolet Suburban comes with four wheel drive, and rear wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic. Performance package includes a 6.2-liter V8 plus extra technology features.Minor revisions to feature availability.

Pros
Seating for up to nine passengers
Sizable cargo capacity
Strong V8 engines tow and haul plenty of cargo

Cons
Maneuvering tight spaces is tricky due to its large size
Difficult to load items because of high cargo floor
Lazy throttle response makes the 5.3-liter V8 feel underpowered

By:

Wi-Fi hotspot now standard,no other significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Tremendously powerful six-cylinder engine
Grip and handling are excellent
Sleeker styling than the related X3 M

Cons
Excessively stiff ride
Rear headroom is a bit tight
Sloping roofline compromises cargo space and visibility

By: 
edmunds.com

Like several other BMWs, the X4 M gains Android Auto and SiriusXM satellite radio as standard features for the 2021 model year. Otherwise, the flashy fastback SUV remains unchanged.

Pros
Abundance of horsepower,
impressively quick acceleration,
deft handling.

Cons
Stiff suspension can be harsh over bumps,
not as practical as X3 M,
polarizing rear styling.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
Balanced power delivery
Impressive grip and balance
Fun on tap in 4WD Sport setting
Transmission refinement

Cons
Punishing ride
Only subtly different next to regular X4
Not as pointed as a full-fledged M4
