The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevy Suburban hasn't forgotten it's an SUV--but the new interior and infotainment features are welcome crossover cues, while the powertrain gets some welcome modernization. It hasn't been brought up to date like the company's pickup trucks, but the Ford Expedition has one of the best cabins and designs among the biggest SUVs.
