Chevy’s Suburban SUV has got the RST version earlier together with the Tahoe, but the trim is nothing compared to the all-new and impressive 2019 Chevrolet Suburban RST Performance Package. In contrast to the Tahoe that has got a 6.2-liter V8 option, the car manufacturer’s largest SUV wasn’t available with it. Luckily, they fixed the mistake this year, so you will be able to get the amazing option for some extra money.
In contrast to the standard 5.3-liter V8 engine that was the topping option so far, the 2019 Suburban RST Performance Package hosts the aforementioned 6.2-liter V8 engine which delivers 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The power travels to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission that has been borrowed from the Chevy Camaro ZL1. The smooth-shifting gearbox is a pretty wide (7.39) gear ratio that keeps SUV’s highway fuel economy as low as it’s possible. That’s additionally fixed with the standard Active Fuel Management.
The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban RST Performance Package hosts some brake and exhaust upgrades as well. The brake upgrade includes six-piston Brembo brake calipers which are painted in red. The exhaust system is Borla. By using it, the full-size SUV improves airflow and adds sound. Though, there’s no any kind of benefit from additional power. The vehicle rides on 22-inch wheels with Bridgestone P285/45 22 tires. The exterior design has got some extras such as the gloss-black grille and black badges.
The vanilla option will have to cost some extra money of course. If the carmaker does the count as it did with the Tahoe, then the 2019 Chevy Suburban RST Performance Package is going to be priced $4,955 over the top Premier trim. The SUV will hit the dealerships this summer.
