Suburban has a long-standing reputation as the go-to vehicle for active American families. Suburban has maintained its reputation for spacious room and legendary capability. So pack it up, load it in and get out there.
It was the world's first SUV and has continued to pave the way through its rich history into today's modern comforts. Suburban 1/2-Ton offers a long list of advanced safety and convenience features. To put it simply, Suburban does not compromise.
With its iconic rugged lines and solid bearing, Suburban 1/2–Ton has always been an unmistakable member of the Chevy family. And that strength isn't just for looks: This is a full–size vehicle that can handle what you throw its way.
Let Suburban Do the Work
Suburban 1/2–Ton works hard, but you don't have to. Loading and unloading are convenient and easy with the power liftgate standard on LTZ and available on LT3. Streamline the look on LTZ with the available power–retractable assist steps with chrome accent strips.
Z71 Off–Road Suspension Package
Adventure is waiting for you, and Suburban 1/2–Ton can get you there. Features of the available Z71 Off–Road Suspension Package include 18–inch aluminum wheels with on–/off–road blackwall tires, monotube shocks and wheel flares, Skid Plate Package, recovery hooks, tubular assist steps and chrome grille inserts.
Suburban 1/2–Ton's interior is large enough to accommodate up to eight passengers (nine in LS) or best–in–class 137 cu. ft. of maximum cargo†. Plus, enjoy convenience features like the standard Driver Information Center, which provides you with important readouts of vehicle functions like engine oil life, tire pressure†, fuel range and mileage, and comfort features like the heated steering wheel, standard on LTZ.
Convenience That Works
Convenient amenities like power–adjustable pedals, remote vehicle starter system and Rear Parking Assist already come standard on LT and LTZ. Or opt for the available Convenience Package on LS and still get it all.
Total Climate Control
Tri–zone manual (LS) or automatic (LT, LTZ) climate controls feature individual climate settings for driver, right–front passenger and rear passengers. Heated and cooled perforated leather–appointed 12–way power front bucket seats provide added comfort in LTZ and include two–position driver memory, and driver and passenger power recline and lumbar support. Don't overlook the heated steering wheel, standard on LTZ.
With 320 horsepower and 335 lb.-ft. of torque under the hood, the Vortec™ 5.3L V8 engine gives you up to 8,100 lbs. of towing muscle† to add to the 137.4 cu. ft. of maximum cargo space†.
Active Fuel ManagementTM Technology
This advanced technology delivers power when you need it and conserves it when you don't. When you're
driving on level roads, the system automatically deactivates four of the eight cylinders. It then reactivates all
cylinders when you accelerate or travel on inclines.
Variable Valve Timing
Fuel efficiency† is amped up to the next level by having the vehicle take control of the valves during intake and
exhaust. It allows you to consume even less fuel when your driving demands don't require it.

There's a lot riding in your Suburban. That's why it includes some of the latest safety technology to help keep you safe on the road. Advanced electronic systems, coupled with engineering characteristics like a safety cage, work together to help prevent collisions – and to help protect you if you're in one. It's comprehensive safety before, during and after a collision.
The StabiliTrak™ Electronic Stability Control System with Traction Control and four–wheel anti–lock brakes help you stay in control in slippery road conditions, and Proactive Roll Avoidance engages automatically to help reduce the risk of a rollover crash. Working in conjunction with StabiliTrak™ is Trailer Sway Control that helps reduce trailer sway when towing. The standard Tire Pressure Monitor† is designed to let you know when tire pressure levels are less than optimal.
Suburban is equipped with six standard air bags†for the driver, right front passenger and outboard rear occupants, and a steel safety cage to help preserve occupant space in the vehicle.
OnStar® Automatic Crash Response†, standard for the first six months on all Suburban models, includes built–in sensors that can automatically alert OnStar for help in an emergency. Even if you can't respond, an Advisor can request that emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location. It's peace of mind for you and your family.
