Used Car: 2014 Chevrolet Suburban Review
The 2014 Chevrolet Suburban has a bigger cargo area than most of its rivals, but getting the most out of that space can be tricky, reviewers noted, and the handling feels clumsy.
The 2014 Chevy Suburban comes with a V8 engine. Most reviewers remarked that there is enough power for day-to-day driving, but some thought the engine feels less potent when the Suburban is towing a heavy trailer or is filled with people and cargo. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. Fuel economy is fairly close across the class, but the 2014 Suburban’s is good at an EPA-estimated 15/21 mpg city/highway. Reviewers said you can expect the Suburban to deliver a comfortable ride, but they noted that it isn't especially agile due to its large size.
According to some test drivers, the 2014 Chevrolet Suburban has a handsome interior, but others stated that the materials’ quality could be better. The Suburban's seats are comfortable and spacious in all three rows, reviewers said, and maximum cargo capacity is excellent for the class. Unlike in a number of rivals, however, you have to remove the third row in order to expand the cargo area, and reviewers found this process tedious. Standard features in the 2014 Suburban include a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth, a USB port and satellite radio. Available features include leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, blind spot monitoring, navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system.
Other SUVs to Consider
The 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe feels smaller from behind the wheel than it is, and it has composed handling, auto critics said. Reviewers remarked that the Tahoe has ample power in all situations, and it gets the same fuel economy as the Suburban.
Although it doesn't have quite as much cargo space as the Suburban, the 2014 Toyota Sequoia has a good amount of cargo capacity for the class. Reviewers were impressed with its powerful V8 engine, and most thought it has confident handling.
