New Chevy Suburban 2016 changes
So, what does the new Chevy Suburban 2016 get over the 2015 car which is only one and a half years old now? Well, firstly GM is going to give it two new colors and remove two of the older ones. On top of that, the AM/FM with CD player audio system will be removed and replaced with a choice of two new units, either a SiriusXM satellite radio or a HD radio, both being better in terms of sound quality than the older unit. The usual SD card reader will also be removed which is a bit of a shame because it means the driver will have to get a line-in device in order to play music on the new infotainment system. Other upgrades also include a head up display which is probably the most interesting feature of the 2016 Chevy Suburban as well as a lane keep assist feature that will allow for “hands-free driving” with the help of the adaptive cruise control system.
2016 Chevy Suburban specs
The exterior will only see the two new colors, Siren Red and Iridescent Pearl and not much else. The engine of the new Chevy Suburban 2016 will also remain unchanged from the previous model, with the same naturally aspirated 5.3 liter V8 which is good for 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, enough to give it a 0 to 60 MPH time of just 7.1 seconds and a fuel consumption of around 18 MPG on average which is actually better than the average. The engine will likely get the same 8 speed automatic as the one found on the Yukon which would be a nice improvement for it, allowing for smoother and faster operation than before. The 2016 Chevy Suburban key competitor is Ford Expedition.
