We are great fans of the nimble Chevy Trailblazer and the full-size luxurious Tahoe High Country, but this Suburban RST model with its imposing street style and optional Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel is a handsome standout on any worksite.
With its unique black ice finish on the grille, RST-specific seats with stitching in a contrasting color inside to the black and black-chrome exterior trim, and the screaming 22-inch wheels this Suburban bring unparalleled authority to the forefront.
The show starts under the hood, with the Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel. This engine was developed for full-size trucks and SUVs – here torque means everything for confident, on-demand power and trailering capability. The Duramax is rated at 277 horsepower (207 kW) and a strong 460 lb-ft (623 Nm) of torque. With no full-size SUV competitor offering a diesel engine our Suburban 4WD RST Diesel is even more impressive.
While on the road we couldn’t believe how quiet our Duramax powered SUV was thanks to highly durable materials that make up the 3.0L Duramax’s critical components, including iron cylinder liners within the aluminum engine block, a forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods, and blended silicon/aluminum pistons for greater heat resistance and reduced expansion.
With six trim levels for Tahoe and Suburban, more than any SUV competitor, it is easy to create a truck that matches both your style and driving needs, be they purposeful, managerial, or badass. Chevy Suburban.
