2020 Chevy Suburban: Redesign, News, Options, Release

After the redesigned light-duty Silverado 1500 appeared for the 2019 model year, Chevy was caught working on the new-generation, heavy-duty trucks. But following the new generation Silverado 1500 will also be GM’s truck-based SUVs and the all-new, full-size 2020 Chevy Suburban will be one of them. The redesigned Tahoe and GMC Yukon will also join the game mirroring the upgrades of the Chevy and GMC light-duty trucks.

The new-generation 2020 Suburban will switch to the new platform and shed some pounds in the process. The styling will also follow the pattern of the all-new Silverado 1500 and the engine range will be similar as well. The news for the upcoming Suburban is also the change to the independent rear suspension.

2020 Chevy Suburban: Platform, Design

GM is working on its full-size fleet and like the all-new Silverado 1500, the redesigned 2020 Chevy Suburban will be based on the version of the T1XX chassis. The design of the platform is the evolution of the K2XX underpinning and with the use of lightweight materials, the new model should lose hundreds of pounds in the process.

The newest Silverado 1500 is up to 450 pounds lighter than before and the next Suburban should move around 300 pounds from the shoulders.

With the version of the chassis, the new Suburban will also borrow the styling cues from the successful, half-ton truck. The prototype of the model despite heavily disguised seems to have the similar treatment of the headlights as the Silverado 1500. The same case will be with the design of the taillights but the grille and body lines should also follow the pattern.

Interior, equipment:

The full-size, three-row SUV will also come with the redesigned interior and increased comfort and luxury. The new suspension setup will boost the ride comfort and model will get new materials and tech features.

The next Suburban will also mimic the dash design and equipment offer of the new-gen, half-ton Silverado. The model will get the newest infotainment system with the center screen probably sized at 7 and 8 inches. The premium quality materials and luxury trim will be available with the heated and ventilated seats. The autonomous driving technology will also be the part of the equipment list.

As for the engine lineup, the new model should again follow the path of the new Silverado 1500. The 5.3-liter V-8 should appear with the new fuel management measures and power around 355 hp. The 6.2-liter V-8 and new 10-speed automatic transmission should make around 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.
