The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban is a great full-sized SUV. It may tow like a truck, but it definitely gives you the control of a sports utility vehicle. But once you've settled on the Suburban, you still have to choose a trim. This comparison guide will help you to narrow down your choices.
Some things remain the same no matter which Suburban you ultimately choose. The fuel economy for the Suburban is 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, regardless of your trim. Another constant is the towing capacity of up to 6,300 pounds when properly equipped. Finally, all Suburbans are rear-wheel-drive unless you upgrade to all-wheel-drive. (This can affect your mileage, lowering it to 14 mpg city/21 mpg highway.)
The LS is the cheapest trim you can choose when picking out a 2019 Chevrolet Suburban. It has a starting MSRP of $51,895. The most interesting thing about the LS is that it has room for eight to nine passengers, which is more seating than the other two trims. This could be perfect for a large family.
The interior comes with a standard 8-inch color touchscreen infotainment system, including Bluetooth and USB capabilities. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also standard, as well as voice activation for the radio or phone. There are also four 12-volt power outlets and one 110-volt power outlet throughout the cabin. The cargo space allows for 39.3 cubic feet with the seats up and a maximum storage area of 121.7 cubic feet with the seats down.
The Suburban LS also has notable standard safety features to keep you and your family safe including rear-vision camera, rear park assist, and LED daytime running lights. There is also a remote vehicle starter system.
The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban LT increases the starting MSRP to $56,895 and comes with everything the LS has and more. As mentioned before, the LT has less passenger space than the LS and can only hold seven to eight total passengers—one less than the LS. That's because the LS trim has the option of a bench front seat. The LT trim forgoes that option.
The upgraded LT interior comes standard with leather-appointed seats. The front seats are also heated. Drivers will also appreciate the power-adjustable pedals that are now available. Audio enthusiasts will love the Bose premium 9-speaker sound system.
Along with an upgraded entertainment system, the rearview mirror allows for auto-dimming during the day and night. Another addition includes a power liftgate with programmable height. Safety also improves a little with the addition of forward collision alert.
As the name suggests, the Premier trim is the best, most luxurious option offered by Chevrolet for the Suburban—although it comes with a high price tag. The starting MSRP of the Premier trim is $66,595, which is a large jump from the LT option. With this price, you get everything the LT has, but with more luxurious additions.
Driver comfort is improved thanks to the magnetic ride control on top of the stylish and larger 20-inch aluminum wheels. The second-row seats, which only include the bucket seat option on this trim, are now power-release, and the third-row seats are now power-fold.
The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban Premier also comes with better safety features like blind-zone alerts, high-intensity discharge headlights, and lane change alerts. You can program your lift gate but also activate it hands-free. It also comes with keyless entry that includes a push-button start, plus 12-way power-adjustable heated and cooled front seats.
