As is the case for most makes and models reviewed by TheCarConnection.com, the more you're willing to spend, the more features are available to you on the 2008 Chevrolet Suburban.

There are five 2008 Chevrolet Suburban trims from which to choose, reports Kelly Blue Book: the standard 1500 model comes in LS, LT, and LTZ, while the heavy-duty 2500 offers LS and LT only.

Car and Driver reports the following standard features for the 2008 Chevy Suburban base LS model: a luggage rack; power locks, windows, and mirrors; genuine wood-grain-trimmed interior; eight-speaker AM/FM/satellite radio stereo system with CD player auxiliary input and MP3 capability; and trailer-towing preparation and OnStar emergency services. The 4WD version adds recovery hooks up front.

According to ConsumerGuide, a "carefully optioned LT is the best choice" among the various 2008 Chevy Suburban models. This isn't a bad buy; whereas the base model has a sticker price of $38,985, a fully loaded rear-wheel-drive 3LT trim is not quite $5,000 more (about $7,500 more for the 4WD version). For this, one gets features such as rear-seat audio controls with headphone jacks, a floor console, turn-by-turn navigation services from OnStar, fog lights, and a nine-speaker Bose stereo system, among other extras.

By the time one gets to the "top-of-the-line LTZ trim level" of the 2008 Chevy Suburban, a buyer can enjoy such extras as "a nav system, rear-seat DVD player, rear-view camera, and a power sunroof," as well as "a more aggressive 4.10 rear axle ratio" and a block heater, reports Car and Driver. Optional equipment is similar for the 2008 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 and 2500; one notable exception pointed out by Car and Driver is a "snow-plow prep package for 4WD 2500 models."

An interesting feature offered on the Chevy Suburban is a small roof spoiler. A more useful feature is the power-extending running boards as reported by Kelley Blue Book for those who might otherwise have "trouble climbing aboard."

Conclusion

The 2008 Chevrolet Suburban has lots of standard equipment and some luxurious, untrucklike options.

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.
