The Chevrolet Suburban got a major refresh for the 2015 model year, so buyers cannot expect the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban full-size SUV with much modification, except with some innovative technology features. The new Suburban is expected to come with a more powerful engine and a fine tuned engine that the outgoing model to offer better performance and fuel economy.
2016 Chevrolet Suburban Redesign, Exterior
The external styling is extremely angular to offer it a wrinkled and hard-pressed look. The 2016 Chevrolet comes with a 220-inch longer body with a shorter wheelbase of 130 inches. Chevy offers its 2016 Suburban the required skill to deliver easy steering forces at any velocity. The new SUV comes equipped with a leaf-spring back suspension similar to that of the Silverado, although the LTZ model of the new vehicle can be ordered to equip with the Magnetic Ride Control, which is a highly-developed system that utilizes the magnetically charged liquid to modify the damping rates of its suspension.
The Magnetic Ride Control makes the suspension to combine a soft and supple travel quality on the ruined street with better body control during the turns. The base suspension is also extremely competent, but physics say that this big, weighty vehicle leans in bends, lacks overall nimbleness, and is burdensome to maneuver in taut spaces. The towing capacity is 8,300 lbs (approx 3773 kg).
