2012 Chevrolet Suburban

If you want a classic, full-size, smooth driving SUV with immense passenger and cargo space, then the 2012 Suburban is calling your name. Your Chevy dealership near Oak Forest can get you set up for a test drive in this established SUV, which has paved the way for all SUVs for the past 75 years. This mammoth vehicle fits up to nine passengers, offers a comfortable driving experience and a smooth ride, and has a powerful V8. The many standard and optional features make this SUV a winner!

Powerful Yet Gentle

Chevy’s traditional full-size SUV has towing capabilities that are strong enough to pull a house…or a houseboat, for sure. With its two V8 options—a 5.3L with 320 hp or a 6.0L with 352 hp—this vehicle can accelerate quickly yet tow almost 10,000 pounds. But even with its huge size and brawny force, this model offers an enjoyable and smooth driving experience.

Styles and Options

This vehicle comes in two models: the 1500 and the heavyweight 2500. Both of these models come in the base trim (LS) and the LT version. The 1500 is also offered in the top trim LTZ.

These first-rate SUVs come with a lot of standard features that are not usually included on other models. The base version (LS) has standard:

  • Power bucket seats in front

  • 50/50 split third row seating
  • Power accessories

Upgrading to the LT trim will get you foglights, heated mirrors, rear parking sensors, leather interior, heated front seats, remote start, and a premium sound system.

The top tier LTZ model offers nice 20-inch polished wheels, a rear air suspension, blind-spot cautioning technology, upscale leather, a heated steering wheel, memorized settings for the driver’s seat, upgraded seating materials, a navigation system, and a super-premium audio system with digital music storage capability.
