A much bigger and better 2022 Chevy Suburban is coming. General Motors recently reveals some information about its best selling SUV. According to them, the redesigned version will be more attractive, and it will arrive next year. If you didn’t know, this model shares a lot with a recently redesigned Chevy Tahoe.
However, it’s much bigger than Tahoe, providing extra length and newly adopted independent rear suspension. In addition to its standard 5,3-liter V-8 engine, the Chevy Suburban also offers an optional diesel 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine and a more potent 6.2-liter V8.
2022 Chevy Suburban Redesign
The exterior of the 2022 Chevy Suburban exterior remains familiar yet fresh. Like the recently introduced new generation of Tahoe, the Suburban features similar styling. As such, it comes with attractive boomerang-like running lights and a massive revised grille. Overall, dimensionally, it’s a foot longer than the Tahoe. It stretches nearly 225.7 inches, making it one of the biggest SUVs on the market.
RST model is still a favorite option for invested money, and it includes 22-inch wheels and darkened aesthetics. The off-road-oriented Suburban Z71 is available as well, featuring hill-descent control, all-terrain tires, and a front skidplate. High Country model is the most expensive option that includes better suspension, a much more robust radiator, and all the trims’ features.
More Space and Features
The new 2022 Chevrolet Suburban is once more available in six trims: LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country. Like its sibling Tahoe, the Suburban offers the same layout inside. This SUV, thanks to its big proportions, offers three rows of seats and can seat up to nine people. Generally, it’s an ideal alternative if you are looking for a commercial-type van for large families.
In terms of technology, even the entry level model includes plenty of features inside. It comes standard with tri-zone automatic climate control, power front seats, premium cloth seats, a 10-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, and a 6-speaker audio system.

Under the hood, the new 2022 Chevy Suburban offers a choice of three engines. Standard on all models is GM’s familiar 5.3-liter V8 powertrain that delivers 355 horsepower. However, more power can be found choosing the optional and more powerful 6.2-liter V8. This unit is available with a top-line High Country model producing 420 horsepower.
