The 2021 Suburban introduces an all-new generation that features significant improvements. The most notable update is the SUV's first-ever independent rear suspension. This allows much better interior packaging that frees up room in the cargo area and third row. The Suburban is also longer than before and outfitted with more technology than ever. This includes first-time equipment such as an air suspension and a downsized Duramax diesel engine.
