With 78 years of experience behind it, the 2013 Chevy Suburban continues its reign as the king of SUVs. The first vehicle to be described as a Sports Utility Vehicle, the Suburban continues to find new ways to earn the long-held title. The 2013 stands apart from former model years with even more space for all your friends and equipment as well as greater comfort without compromising the rugged capabilities for which the chief of SUVs is well known.
For those who want the power and ruggedness of a truck with the passenger space of an SUV or minivan, the Suburban provides the ideal win-win situation. This large SUV now offers convenient loading and unloading via the power liftgate that is available on the LT and comes standard on the LTZ, which also has power-retractable assist steps available. The Z71 Off-Road Suspension Package includes the following must-have accessories:
• 18-inch aluminum wheels with on/off-road tires
• Recovery hooks
• SkidPlate Package
• Monotube shocks and wheel flares
• Chrome grille inserts.
The 2013 Suburban boasts 320 horsepower under the hood, along with 335 lb.-ft. of torque. Its Vortec™ 5.3L V8 engine offers an amazing 8,100 lbs. of towing ability, in addition to the 137.4 cu. Ft. of interior cargo space. With the Active Fuel Management™ technology to provide the power when you need it most, greater fuel efficiency is achieved. All eight cylinders are activated only during acceleration or inclines, while four cylinders provide plenty of power for coasting on level roads.
With an interior that easily accommodates 9 passengers (in the LS) and provides an amazing 137 cu. Ft. of cargo space, both driver and passengers are treated to creature comforts that rival those of smaller SUVs and even luxury sedans. The Driver Information Center that comes standard in the 2013 Suburban provides necessary information like engine oil life and mileage. The Convenience Package comes standard on the LT and LTZ and is available as an option on the LS; with it, drivers are treated to the following perks:
• Power-adjustable pedals

• Heated steering wheel
• Remote vehicle starter system.
Additional tech toys include Bluetooth® wireless technology, a 3-month free trial of SiriusXM Satellite Radio, the MyChevrolet app, a USB port, and OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation. Additional entertainment options are also available on the LT and LTZ, with rear DVD entertainment systems that include two overhead screens, a remote control, and four sets of wireless headphones, input jacks. The Bose Centerpoint® ten-speaker Surround Sound system includes a subwoofer and comes standard on the LTZ.
Total climate control features allow the driver, right-front passenger, and rear passengers to separately control their temperature zone. The 12-way power front bucket seats in the LTZ come with two-position driver memory as well as power recline and lumbar support. From the perspective of anyone in the heated and cooled leather-appointed seats, the reality of the ruggedness and power of the Suburban may be completely lost!
