Test drive Sabotan video (Sabotan 2021 test drive)
Thanks to the recent makeover, the suburban Chevrolet in 2021 will grow in the right way. Although this is always a medium-sized SUV, recent adjustments have made Chevrolet's long-running model a more comfortable model. It can also help the legs in the suburbs. More specifically, it has enough leg space to match its nearest competitor, Ford Adventure Max.
Of course, the adventure max is not the only model that confronts the suburbs. Other full-scale competitors include Toyota Sequoia, Nissan Fleet and even Chevrolet's smaller and cheaper Tahoe. What helps the latest suburbs is that the cabin now has higher quality materials, more seating space, and it is unlikely to be a substantial reflection of the back pain of the words in the cargo area.
We tested the suburban decoration in the high suburbs to find out the fare of this full-size sport utility vehicle, especially compared with the highly respected adventure maximum. You can find our complete comments through the relevant links above. Or, if you want to briefly review this large-scale sports tool, please continue reading.
What we like.
1. More passenger space
Despite its large area, the third row seats in the suburbs have never been a particularly pleasant place for adults. In the updated model, this negligence has been improved: the leg space has increased by more than 2 inches, and the seat no longer makes you feel like sitting on the floor. The space in the second row has also been improved: now there is 2.3 inches of legroom, and like the third row, the seats are positioned higher to increase comfort.
2. Improve the freight area
In the freight area in the suburbs, the availability has been significantly improved. Now, the height of the cargo floor has been reduced by more than 5 inches, which is very helpful when loading heavy objects and bulky items. According to Chevrolet, there is a total of 144.7 cubic feet of spongy cargo space in the suburbs, and the second and third rows of seats are folded.
3. Smooth riding and long-distance comfort
In long-distance travel, passenger space and freight volume are crucial, and suburbs are an excellent choice. However, it doesn't matter if everyone on the trip is teetering. Our test car is equipped with optional "flight attendant adaptive suspension" and "magnetic suspension control", which has performed well in eliminating most bumps on the road.
4. Optional diesel engine
There is an optional diesel engine in the suburbs. It has 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, the same as the optional 6.2-liter V-8 torque, and should be significantly better in fuel economy. We haven't directly tested this kind of diesel, but it adds an interesting aspect to the suburban area.
5. Wave box
Sometimes, even the best engine may be eliminated because it refuses to move on. Fortunately, this is not the case in the suburbs of Chevrolet in 2021. The 10-speed automatic gearbox has quick response and can run seamlessly with the 5.3-liter or 6.2-liter V-8 engine.
6. Increased safety technology
Owning a car of this size sounds like a disaster in the city center or a comfortable parking lot. Thanks to options such as enhanced display and alarm package, the suburb is now a smarter and safer full-size off-road vehicle, which includes a 360-degree camera system, a rearview camera mirror, a pedestrian detection system and an oversized head-up display.
Things we don't like.
1. The feeling of the brake pedal
Technically, it's better, but you still need to get used to it. This is how we describe the brake-by-wire system used in the suburbs. This technology means that it is faster and more efficient than the ordinary vacuum assisted braking system, but the pedal feeling seems to be false and numb. In our review, we suggest that any potential buyers in the suburbs should take notes to see if they are comfortable with the brakes during the test drive.
2.6.2 L V-8 has limited availability.
In terms of absolute horsepower, the 6.2-liter V-8 engine is the leader of 420 ponies in suburban families. Good, but only available at the highest range of "high country" pruning levels. How much is this decoration? The starting price of rear-wheel drive is $73,595, while the price of the suburban highland 4×4 equipment we tested is over $84,000.
