Pros
Two potent V8 engine choices

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.

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
