For such a large truck, steering is surprisingly simple, responsive and direct. Despite its 18.5 foot length and 6.6 foot width, it is remarkably maneuverable. Most prefer the Chevrolet Suburban Three QTR-Ton SUV outside of city limits, as heavy traffic and parking present challenges. A U-turn can be completed on only 45.3 feet of road, which is close to the amount required by smaller sedans.
Many truck experts believe that for optimal towing, a solid rear axle is required optimized for strength. The Chevrolet Suburban Three QTR-Ton SUV evidently subscribes to this school of thought. Nonetheless, the ride is comparatively smooth and comfortable. Leaf springs make up the rear suspension, which is more effective with the additional 600 to 900 pounds of weight on this truck and adds notable fuel capacity. Drivers report stability when on the road in this SUV, which might turn less quickly than lighter models, but is certainly in an acceptable range.
The interior of the Chevrolet Suburban Three QTR-Ton SUV is made of cloth and includes power locks, windows, and mirrors, which are foldable and heated, as well as three-zone air conditioning, a roof rack with crossbars, a seven-wire trailer harness, and three power outlets. Sound is distributed through six speakers from an AM/FM/XM radio, a CD player, and an MP3 player. Cruise control and audio control are convenient, right from the leather steering wheel, or alternatively, the stereo can be controlled from the rear seats.
The front seats are usually bucket style, but they can be replaced by a three person bench. The second seat folds in a 60/40 split, while the third row folds down in a 50/50 configuration. Since it doesn't fold completely flat, many prefer to pull the seats out and store elsewhere when more space is needed.
The Chevrolet Suburban Three QTR-Ton SUV has many standard safety features, such as full-length head curtain airbags, dual frontal airbags, and front seat-mounted side-impact airbags. Anti-lock disc brakes are complete with electronic proportioning, and a tire-pressure monitor gives added security. The GM Stabilitrak system offers electronic stability, with traction control and anti-rollover mitigation. Optional safety features can be added as well, such as side Blind Zone Safety Alert, rear park assist, and a convenience package that provides remote start, adjustable pedals, and a rear camera display.
