Chevrolet makes two of the best full-size SUVs in the game. Its full-size SUVs are arguably its most competitive SUV models. The better model between the Chevy Suburban and Chevy Tahoe is up for debate. The largest Chevrolet SUV, however, is as clear as day.

What is the largest SUV from Chevrolet?

Chevy’s Suburban full-size SUV is much larger than the Tahoe (15 inches longer). Additionally, it’s larger than most SUVs in its segment. The 2023 Chevy Suburban’s huge advantage over many competitors in the same price range is its cabin and cargo space. It’s easily one of the roomiest SUVs that money can buy.

The 2023 Chevrolet Suburban has 144.7 cubic feet of space with its rear seats folded down. Furthermore, it has 93.8 cubic feet of space with its third row of seats folded down. It’s practically a mobile fortress. Subsequently, it’s the ideal vehicle for transporting a large number of passengers comfortably and carrying plenty of cargo. That being said, do its specs justify its purchase price?

Chevy’s Suburban nameplate is slightly more expensive than some of its competitors. It has a decent power output. Furthermore, alternative engine options are even more impressive. For a full-size SUV, the Suburban’s fuel efficiency isn’t horrible (but it isn’t great, either).

The Chevy Suburban large family SUV comes with plenty of excellent standard safety and driver assistance features that contribute to a positive ownership experience. Its base model prioritizes convenience and ease of use.

Ultimately, the best creature comforts and tech features are reserved for upper-trim-level models. Its High Country fully loaded configuration is the best-equipped Suburban. The 2023 Chevrolet High Country comes with advanced standard features, including a Bose 10-speaker audio system, a Head-up display, and HD surround vision. It also includes heated and ventilated driver/front passenger seats, a heated steering wheel, and perforated leather-appointed seat trim. Learn more about the High Country trim in the video below:

If you’re in the market for a massive new family SUV, the Suburban is a great option. If you don’t need as much cabin and cargo space, the more affordable 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe ($54,200) is the way to go. Is the Suburban the most iconic of all Chevy SUVs, or do better-selling models like the Chevrolet Equinox have it beaten?
