Fuel: 12 mpg city / 16 mpg hwy
The Chevy Suburban enters 2007 completely redesigned. It is offered in three trims: LS, LT, and LTZ in either 1500 or HD 2500 series with 2WD or 4WD configurations. Engines choices for the 1500 series include two versions of the Vortec 5.3L V8 with Active Fuel Management (one is an all aluminum engine while the other is produced with an iron block), which produces 320 horsepower and 340 lbs-ft of torque and a 6.0L V8 with VVT and Active Fuel Management. The Active Fuel Management system switches between eight and four cylinders in order to conserve fuel. An iron block version of the 6.0L V8 with VVT is offered on the 2500 series. All engines are mated to a Hydra-Matic four-speed automatic transmission. Other new features include a remote vehicle starting system, rear view camera system, and power running boards.
