The famous full-size SUV has just been redesigned and we are already getting reports about novelties for the second production year. Despite that the new model has brought significant improvements in various aspects, many speculate about the addition of a high-performance version. According to rumors, this model would carry the legendary badge and come as the 2022 Chevy Suburban SS. At this point, the officials are quiet, so take the following paragraphs with a big reserve.
If it arrives, we have no doubt that the focus would be on performance upgrades. This refers primarily to mechanics, but we presume such a version would also come with a lot of new styling details, which would accentuate its performance character. Finally, we could see more power under the hood, though it’s still early for details.
The 2022 Chevy Suburban SS could come already by the end of this year.
2022 Chevy Suburban SS Design
The Suburban has just come completely redesigned. This update has brought all kinds of novelties and the new model seems way better than before. It is lighter, more efficient, more practical and better to drive. Now, it looks like it’s time for a sportier variant if we can trust rumors.
If the 2022 Chevy Suburban SS happens, we presume it will come with all kinds of upgrades. One of the first things that come to mind is the suspension, which should include sports shocks and similar upgrades. We count on bigger disc brakes as well. Further chassis upgrades are also expected, while we count on exclusive styling details too. Some of the things that come to mind are sporty bumpers, bigger wheels, side skirts and similar things. Exclusive color options are also possible, as well as few more accessories, such as “SS” badges, graphics and similar things.
A couple of interior upgrades are possible too. We could see new color schemes and new materials. Also, seats and dashboard could come upgrades with stitching, as well as with “SS” badges on headrests and few more areas.
Still, we have no doubt that the overall cabin layout will remain the same. The new model looks really nice from the inside but once again, the interior space is its strongest point. There are three generous rows of seats, which can accommodate up to eight adult passengers. Even the third row is spacious and comfortable enough for longer journeys.
Finally, there is the cargo area, which is impressive. You may count on about 41.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third-row seats, 93.8 cubic feet with these seats folded, and 144.7 cubic feet in total. Those are class-leading numbers (along with GMC Yukon XL) and biggest rivals like Ford Expedition Max and Toyota Sequoia trail behind with a pretty big margin.
As we are talking about a sporty trim, which will probably be one of the most expensive versions of the SUV, there is no doubt that the list of standard equipment will certainly be long. Things like a 10.2-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, eight USB ports, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, HD Radio, satellite radio, keyless entry, remote start, tri-zone automatic climate control, two 120-volt household-style power outlets etc. will certainly be standard. The potential additions are goodies like 10-speaker stereos, wireless device charging, sunroof etc.
We presume this model will also come packed with all kinds of safety features, such as a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, front parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keeps assist, adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, a rearview.
2022 Chevy Suburban SS Engine
Of course, this will be one of the most interesting aspects of the vehicle. The current model is available with three engines and we presume that the 2022 Chevy Suburban SS would come with, at least, the most powerful of the three. That is a 6.2-liter V8, which puts out around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
Still, we would probably expect a little bit more from the high-performance version. Some sources speculate about the Supercharged version of the famous LT4 engine, which powers the Camaro. This one puts out around 650 horsepower, which is the amount of power that would certainly take the SUV’s performance to the next level.
2022 Chevy Suburban SS Release Date and Price
We believe that the 2022 Chevy Suburban SS could come already by the end of this year. However, the officials are still quiet, so take this with a big reserve. If it arrives, we presume that the price would go somewhere around 75.000 dollars, according to our rough estimation.
