2013 Chevrolet Suburban Exterior

If you’re looking for a serious truck-based SUV with the capability to haul nine passengers and still have enough cargo room to bring along all their luggage, equipment, or toys – then the Suburban is right up your alley. One particular feature that makes this SUV more appealing to some customers than a van or a competing SUV is the Suburban’s towing capability. The Suburban offers every luxury amenity you can think of, and with the heavy-duty towing package, you really can have it all.
