The 2018 Chevy Suburban is the latest edition in what has long been a fan-favorite vehicle, starting from its inception in 1935 - in fact, it has the distinction of being the longest continually-used nameplate among all manufactured vehicles. That means the 2018 model had big "tires to fill" - a task it took very seriously. Praised by critics for its best-in-class fuel economy and "outstanding cargo space
," this vehicle is large and in charge when it comes to the full size SUV class of 2018. If you're looking to haul a heavy load of building materials around New Braunfels or want to trek out to Seguin to pick up a must-have piece of furniture, you'll want to be behind the wheel of the Chevy Suburban.
Big Impressions: Sizing the 2018 Chevy Suburban
At 224″ Long, 81" Wide and 74" high, there's no way anyone is going to mistake your new ride for a sedan. The square profile is softened with smartly-rounded edges and streamlining along the body, elegantly unveiling spacious room for 7 behind its doors. The 40 square feet of cargo space expands into a whopping 122 square feet once the third row of seating is folded down, giving owners ample space to tote anything their to-do list demands. If you can't wait to take your new vehicle into the great outdoors, you're in luck: everything from camping equipment to a kayak - yes, a full kayak - slides into the cavernous cargo area effortlessly. (After all, who wants to struggle with tiedowns and awkward roof rack-balancing when the great outdoors is calling?)
There's a reason that Suburbans are so popular with SUV owners: they don't balk at cargo when carrying capacity is important. It doesn't mean that utility eclipses comfort, however: the 2018 Chevy Suburban has plenty of plush features and modern conveniences to delight driver and passengers alike, long after the triple-sealed, ultra-quiet doors have closed.
Tuned In: Tech in the 2018 Chevy Suburban
The Suburban's handling and safety features keep you connected to the road while smart interior tech keeps you connected to everything else. Tempting tech options like a Rear-Seat Entertainment System with Blu-ray® puts screens in both the second and third rows.

Need to charge up your favorite device? You'll have your pick of up to 14 charge locations placed conveniently around the interior, as well as a hidden, locking compartment with a USB port for safe and easy charging. You won't need to worry about losing cell signal en route to Schertz, either: the built-in OnStar system gives you optional access to 4G LTE wireless internet, allowing your passengers to browse the web, answer emails, and more: no pit stop required.
Your favorite songs, podcasts, and other audio delights are easy to enjoy in the 2018 Chevy Suburban too. Triple-sealed doors, and an acoustic-laminated windshield make the most of the 6-speak surround system, upgradable to a Bose speaker system in the higher trim levels. So go ahead - turn the volume up on your favorite album while you're cruising through Selma - this stylish tried-and-tested SUV will deliver the same quality experience in sound as it does on the road: smooth, comfortable, and always worth repeating.
