Moving on, its front fascia has a dual stacked layout of headlights and the radiator grille. What’s changed is the front bumper which is now bigger and gives an impression of almost touching the ground. Polished aluminum wheels come with 2 size options which include 18 and 20 inches.

Interior cabin is where this 2017 Chevy Suburban gets most of its attention. This is because the cabin space is more than what one could ask for. The seats are very comfortable with premium upholstery. Expect both heating and ventilation features to come as standard.

Moreover, this cabin is quiet as acoustic-laminated windshield along with triple-sealed doors has been used. The cargo storage boasts a 39.8 cubic feet measurement which can be expanded up to 121.7 cubic feet by folding the 2nd and 3rd-row seats.

The cockpit includes a driver information display which is fully customizable. Also, there’s an 8-inch diagonal touchscreen display which supports smartphone integration. Just like in the new Chevrolet Equinox for 2018.
