The 2009 Chevrolet Suburban comes standard with a pretty impressive list of features. If you're willing to shell out additional dough, TheCarConnection.com reports that some nifty options can be yours.

There are five 2009 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.

The 2009 Chevrolet Suburban offers plenty of standard features: an eight-speaker AM/FM/satellite radio stereo system with CD player auxiliary input and MP3 capability; a luggage rack; power locks, windows, and mirrors; a genuine wood-grain-trimmed interior; and trailer-towing preparation and OnStar emergency services. The 4WD version adds recovery hooks up front, according to Car and Driver. For 2009, a Bluetooth hands-free interface and XM NavTraffic are available.

A fully loaded rear-wheel-drive 3LT trim is not quite $5,000 more than the base model (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. According to ConsumerGuide, a "carefully optioned LT is the best choice" among the various 2009 Chevy Suburban models.

Car and Driver reports that by the time one gets to the "top-of-the-line LTZ trim level" of the 2009 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. For 2009, expect a more complete standard list of features for the LTZ model.

Optional equipment is similar for the 2009 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 and 2500, though Car and Driver points out one notable exception: a "snow-plow prep package for 4WD 2500 models." A top-notch Luxury Package joins your list of options for 2009. One other 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 2009 Chevrolet Suburban offers a good list of standard equipment—as well as some surprisingly luxurious 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.
