How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Car and Driver

The long, tall, and wide Chevy Suburban is styled about as you'd expect. After all, as Kelley Blue Book puts it, it's "clearly a truck-though fancier in appearance than many cargo haulers." According to Car and Driver, in 2007 the Suburban "underwent a major redesign...and emerged as a more modern, refined, handsome, and user-friendly truck." For a big box, it's tastefully rendered, with a nice balance between glass and sheetmetal, some subtle fender flares, and curves around the corners of its windows. Kelley Blue Book mentions "tighter body-gap tolerances," crediting those and "a more sleekly-angled windshield" for the Suburban's "improved aerodynamics...while a bulging power-dome hood adds to visceral appeal." The Chevy front-end treatment isn't quite the success that the GMC Yukon XL sports, but it's clean and not as imposing as it could be. In all, the Suburban is far less clunky-looking than it was in its last generation-and it's among the most attractive full-sized utes, particularly when compared to the ungainly Toyota Sequoia and the exaggerated Nissan Armada.

With slightly different interiors in five-passenger and six-passenger versions, the Suburban blends plastics and wood grain into a friendly, airy cabin with straightforward gauges and intuitive controls. The most expensive versions have a wood-grain-trimmed, chrome-detailed interior that could have been lifted from a premium sedan. Car and Driver calls it a "handsome design inside," while
Cars.com remarks, "the new look it got in GM's impressive 2007 redesign still holds up." Kelley Blue Book praises the latest Suburban's "greater overall refinement-including enclosing the 'close-outs' around seat bottoms for a cleaner appearance." The overall effect is quite sophisticated for a truck of its size and duty.

Conclusion

The 2010 Chevrolet Suburban is a truck, after all-but a well-designed one with a good-looking interior.
