2008 Chevrolet Suburban: What's New
Six speeds for the heavy-duty version.
Chevrolet's longest sport-utility vehicle shares platforms and powertrains with the GMC Tahoe XL and Cadillac Escalade. It is offered in LS, LT, and LTZ models, with standard rear- or optional four-wheel drive.
The standard engine is a 5.3-liter, 320-horsepower V-8; a 6.0-liter, 366-horsepower V-8 with cylinder deactivation is available. All versions come standard with 17-inch wheels and stability control. New for 2008 are standard curtain airbags on all versions.
A heavy-duty Suburban is offered, and can tow up to 9700 pounds. This year, the Suburban 2500 heavy-duty edition gets a new six-speed automatic transmission and distinctive 17-inch wheels.
This year, LS models get a front 40/20/40 split bench seat and new woodgrain trim.
Available equipment includes power-release fold-and-tumble second-row seats, remote start, rear park assist, first- and second-row heated seats, a DVD rear-seat entertainment system, a DVD-based navigation system, a rearview back-up camera, and 20-inch wheels (standard on LTZ ).
