2008 Chevrolet Suburban Review

This review was written when the 2008 Chevrolet Suburban was new.

The Suburban delivers excellent ride and handling for its size, improved fuel economy, and a comfortable, spacious interior. If you're in the market for an affordable large SUV, consider the GMC Yukon for more luxury.

The Chevrolet Suburban has been redesigned from the ground up in 2007 with what most reviewers agree are positive results. For 2008, little has changed and the Suburban stays near the top of its class despite plummeting sales as consumers more toward smaller, more fuel efficient SUVs. Those consumers who truly need the Suburban's gigantic interior and impressive towing capabilities will have to be willing to fill its 31 gallon fuel tank fairly often.  The Suburban is a fuel efficient SUV for its size, but gas costs can quickly add up.

  • "Like a nice new home in suburbia, we are pleasantly surprised with our Suburban's high level of refinement and the extra room inside that we've come to expect from a big SUV."AutoWeek
  • "More desirable and more formidable than ever," -- Motor Trend
  • "If you have a large family, haul lots of things and/or tow, Suburban is the vehicle of choice for its three rows of seats, spacious cargo hold and sufficiently muscular V-8." -- The Chicago Tribune
  • "The Chevy Suburban is a big ol' hunk, but it's the perfect vehicle for swallowing six adults and their carry-on bags for a long weekend." -- Kansas City Star
