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

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.

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

Former T8 plug-in hybrid is now called Recharge.Adaptive headlights, hands-free liftgate and rear USB-C ports added as standard.

Pros
Elegant interior design
Spacious second-row seating
Many standard safety tech features
Available as a plug-in hybrid

Cons
Not as fun to drive as most competitors
Too many controls tied to frustrating touchscreen interface
Ride is a little busier than you might expect from a luxury crossover

By:

The XC60 receives several new standard features for 2021, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, LED headlights, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and front parking sensors, as well as a new 19-inch wheel design and power-folding exterior mirrors with an auto-dimming function. Volvo has eliminated AM radio on the XC60, but fans of the format will still be able to listen via a provided app, TuneIn, through the infotainment system.

Pros
Handsomely designed inside and out,
good fuel economy from all three powertrains,
plenty of standard safety tech.

Cons
Infotainment system response lags at startup,
hybrid powertrain needs refinement,
dinky interior storage bins.

The 2019 Volvo XC60 is the full picture: advanced powertrains, gorgeous interior, subtle exterior.

Pros

Gorgeous interior
Competent powertrains
Standard advanced safety features
Logical and sharp touchscreen

Cons
Can get pricey quickly
Not especially fuel efficient without a plug
Requires premium fuel
It’s not in our driveway now
