2012 Chevrolet Suburban Review

Everything we've learned since building the first sport “ute goes into making the 2012 Chevrolet Suburban the most capable in its history. That begins with power. The 310 hp Vortec 5.3L V8 that's standard on 1500 models features Active Fuel Management for significant fuel efficiency gains. The 352 hp Vortec 6.0L V8 is standard on 2500 models and features variable valve timing to optimize both power and fuel efficiency. And with prodigious power comes class-leading cargo capacity of over 137 cubic feet and trailering capacities that top out at a massive 9600 pounds. Suburban continues to set the pace with its innovative safety technology. 1500 models offer an available side blind zone alert that uses radar technology to detect a vehicle entering a blind spot. And all Suburbans are equipped with the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system that helps counter the causes of understeer and oversteer. Suburban also earned the highest possible U.S. government frontal and side-impact crash test ratings – five stars Go With The SUV That Really Pulls Its Weight with the 2012 Chevrolet Suburban.
