Editor's Overview

Now going on 83 years, the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban carries the industry’s longest-running nameplate. Still the go-to vehicle for big families with big needs, the Suburban is hard to beat. Its only real competition comes from the extended-length Ford Expedition Max, a vehicle that is both newer and able to tow 1,000 more pounds than the Chevy.

Great for large families!

Very reliable. Heavy duty and drives well on gravel. We have a very large family and appreciate the seats and comfort of the interior. We also like the cargo space for shopping trips and travel. We opted for three bench seats and lost the built in video player option. This is not ideal.

- Melissa K

It got some power. It's a big car some people struggle to park in tight spots.

I truly love my vehicle. Love the interior and also the space. We are a family of 7 and we all fit comfortably. I truly love the fact that it alerts you to check your backseat for any little passengers. Has rain sensor windshield wipers. Heated seats. Over all is a great family vehicle.

- Iris P
