2010 Chevrolet Suburban vs. Its Competition

2010 Chevrolet Suburban
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

When facing off against the two full-size SUV imports, a properly equipped 2010 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 can tow four tons, equal to GM's own GMC Yukon XL and besting the Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada in this important category.

Other options include the Ford Expedition and, in particular, the Ford Expedition EL (extended length).

It offers some useful features and trim styles the Chevy Suburban doesn't, as well as an arguably better ride with just a light passenger load.

Quick Specs
8.0
The 2010 Chevrolet Suburban is a workhorse in the best sense; it's capable and handsome, too.
7.8
Competitors to the 2009 Nissan Armada offer roomier interiors and better options, but the Armada should be commended for its handsome looks and powerful V-8 engine.
8.2
The 2008 Ford Expedition is a big, capable SUV with a truly useful and convenient third row.
8.2
The 2008 Toyota Sequoia is a capable example of the full-size SUV--in a day where the full-size SUV makes less and less sense.
