The legendary full-size SUV came completely redesigned a couple of months ago, with improvements in nearly every aspect. Therefore, no one expects more notable changes for the second production year, which will come in the form of the 2022 Chevy Suburban. Even though we can hear rumors about the hi-performance version, which would come with the legendary “SS” badge, chances to see something like that are actually pretty small.
All in all, you may count on familiar design characteristics, which have been introduced several months ago. The new generation offers even more space than before, but also looks way better and features a much nicer interior design. Also, there is a new diesel option, while the chassis has been revised and now utilizes a lot of lightweight materials, which have an important impact on the overall efficiency. Since we probably won’t see any particular change, the 2022 Chevy Suburban should hit the market sometime late in the year.
2022 Chevy Suburban Design
The recent redesign has brought a lot of novelties in this aspect, so we do not doubt that the 2022 Chevy Suburban will continue in the same way. First of all, there is a new T1 architecture, the same one that underprints the new Silverado, which made the new Suburban notably lighter. Also, you may count on a slightly longer wheelbase, while the biggest improvement made with this redesign is actually in terms of ride quality. The new chassis feels far more engaging, while the standard independent rear suspension has a great impact on both comfort and handling.
When it comes to the possible SS-badged model, we would expect to see upgrades in various aspects, starting from a new suspension setup. This version would be stiffer and closer to the ground. Upgraded brakes and further chassis reinforcement also sounds quite likely. Naturally, we would see several styling upgrades as well, which would emphasize the model’s performance-oriented character.
Interior changes definitely won’t happen. Not only that we are talking about a very fresh model, but the new Suburban also features one of the nicest cabins in the class. Materials are great, while the dashboard looks very attractive. A nice tablet-like touchscreen and other tech goodies make everything look even more upscale.
Still, drivers of this huge SUV rather appreciate the amount of space it offers. You may count on three very spacious rows of seats, where the first row offers 44.5 inches of legroom. The second row is good for about 42 inches, while the third row offers 36.7 inches of legroom, which is also very adult-friendly.
The cargo area is even more 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 with the second and third rows folded. Those are class-leading numbers!
Once again, it’s hard to expect more significant changes in terms of standard equipment for the second production year. Most of the things should remain as in the current model, which already features a pretty long list of standard features and lots of options. The list of standard features includes 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, tri-zone climate control, 120-V power outlet and many more. Additionally, you can get things like a navigation system, nine- and 10-speaker stereos, wireless device charging, and a rear-seat entertainment system with two 12.6-inch touch screens, power-retractable side steps and many more.
This list of safety features is also pretty generous. All models come standard with things like a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights etc.
2022 Chevy Suburban Engines
This aspect definitely won’t bring changes and the 2022 Chevy Suburban will continue with three familiar engine options. Base models will carry on with a 5.3-liter V8, which features a max output of 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. If you’re in need of more power, there is a 6.2-liter V8, which puts out around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Both engines use the same 10-speed automatic transmission, while mpg ratings are also quite similar. You may count on about 14 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.
There is also a recently-introduced diesel version of the SUV. It uses a familiar 3.0-liter V6, which is good for about 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. It also comes coupled with a 10-speed gearbox.
2022 Chevy Suburban Release Date and Price
We expect to see a 2022 Chevy Suburban sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a starting price of around 53.000 dollars. Key competitors are models like Ford Expedition Max, Toyota Sequoia etc.
