2015 Chevrolet Suburban: Car Seat Check

15Suburban_main

The Chevrolet Suburban gets a more aggressive look for the 2015 model year. This family hauler has three rows of seats and can seat up to nine people when equipped with a three-seat bench in both the first and second rows. For our test, we had a Suburban LTZ that could seat seven, thanks to second-row captain's chairs and standard bucket seats in the front row.

How many car seats fit in the second row? Two

No Joke: We Drove a $73,000 Chevrolet Suburban

2015ChevroletSuburban

What do you call a $73,000 Suburban? An Escalade.

That joke would've killed around here just a couple of weeks ago, before we got the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ into our test fleet here at Cars.com's Chicago home base and noticed the full-size SUV's extravagant sticker price: $72,835, including a $995 destination charge. The discovery was met with unanimous disbelief and a chorus of incredulous voices demanding to know, "Whaaaat?" Yes, it would seem that this non-luxury nameplate can now be purchased at a decidedly luxury price.

We'll get to how you can run up such a high bill in a minute. But first let's consider what else you could buy for roughly that price (without regard for specific body style, features or options) using the Cars.com search feature:

GM's Big SUVs Lead Segment in Mileage

2015ChevroletTahoe

GM has released new EPA fuel economy numbers for its newly refreshed and upgraded Chevrolet and GMC full-size SUVs, and they're leading the segment. The 2015 Chevy Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon/Yukon XL will come standard with the EcoTec3 all-aluminum 5.3-liter V-8 that debuted in the all-new 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra half-ton pickup trucks last year. The new engine produces more power and offers better city and highway fuel economy than either of the previous 5.3-liter V-8 engines (LC9 or LMG) it replaces.

More Fuel Efficiency News

According to the press release, the new EPA-rated numbers for the Chevy Suburban (and GMC Yukon XL) are 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway for two-wheel-drive models, improving the previous engine's numbers by 7 and 9 percent, respectively. Four-wheel-drive models for both the 2015 Yukon XL and Suburban are 15/22. Shorter wheelbase Tahoe and Yukon models with two-wheel drive have an EPA rating of 16/23, with four-wheel-drive models rated at 16/22.

2015 Chevrolet Suburban: More Photos

2015ChevroletTahoe
After nearly 80 consecutive years in production and 12 generations, the longest-running nameplate in the auto industry has gone about a half dozen years without a substantial update. But all that's about to change with the redesigned-for-2015 Chevrolet Suburban, which we got an early peek at last week during the State Fair of Texas in Dallas. The full-size SUV boasts sporty new exterior styling, a host of tech upgrades and safety equipment, and a towing capacity of 8,300 pounds.

The new Suburban is expected to hit dealerships in early 2014; until then, you can tide yourself over by checking out Cars.com photographer Evan Sears' photos from Texas in the gallery below.

2015 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe Video

"The stars at night are big and bright deep in the heart of Texas," and two big stars — the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban — shone particularly bright last week, debuting at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas. Cars.com Editor-in-Chief Patrick Olsen got a look at the sleeker-styled full-size SUVs, slated to hit dealerships early next year, and checked out new goodies like the Suburban's cargo-expanding feature that drops both the second- and third-row seats at the push of a button. Check out the video for more.
