Default 2021 Suburban Prototype Appears To Feature Independent Rear Suspension

Chevy’s all-new 2020 Suburban is on its way, and the latest spy shots of prototype models show some very interesting changes not outside, but rather underneath the full-size SUV.

The photos show that the new Suburban will have an independent rear suspension (IRS) design, which is a notable departure from the current model’s solid rear axle setup. GM made the effort to disguise the rear suspension setup on the prototype by hanging some bristle-like camouflage, but the photos still show clear evidence of independent rear suspenders.

An independent rear suspension configuration is known to deliver more nimble handling while also providing higher levels of comfort for vehicle occupants, since each wheel will be able to react to imperfections in a road surface independently of the other.

Expect to see the 2020 Suburban to make its global debut in the first half of 2019, and go on sale later that year as a 2020 model. An all-new, future Chevy Tahoe will also be derived from the new Suburban as a shorter variant for the 2020 model year (more on the 2020 Tahoe).

The Chevrolet Suburban is a full-size Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). It is currently Chevrolet’s biggest SUV, slotting above the regular-length and also full-size Chevrolet Tahoe. Essentially, the Suburban is the extended-length Tahoe.

The current model was introduced for the 2015 model year and represents the 11th generation of the Suburban nameplate. The model rides on the GMT-K2 platform shared with the Chevrolet Silverado, Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Sierra, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL as well as the Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV.

The 2018 Chevy Suburban represents the fourth model year of the eleventh-generation Suburban. The vehicle remains highly competitive in its segment and the 2018 model year brings various improvements, most notably the Suburban RST (Rally Sport Truck) appearance package.

The 2019 Chevy Suburban represents the 11th generation Suburban, and offers up a new exterior color, a new Premier badge on the tailgate, and new color availability for the Suburban RST as well as the introduction of the Suburban RST Performance Package.

The Chevrolet Suburban is built at the GM Arlington factory in Texas operated by GM USA.
