The 2010 Chevy Suburban 1500 can be decked out in LS, LT, and LTZ trims, with either rear- or four-wheel drive.
Standard equipment includes an AM/FM/XM/CD player with an auxiliary and a USB port; air conditioning; power windows, locks, and mirrors; tilt steering; steering-wheel audio controls; and 17-inch wheels.
The LT version adds features like 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 2010 Chevy Suburban models.
Options and option packages include Bluetooth connectivity; a DVD navigation system that's very easy to use and has a clear, large LCD screen; a rear-seat DVD entertainment system; real-time traffic; a third-row LCD screen; a rear air conditioner; leather upholstery; power-adjustable pedals; remote start; ventilated seats; heated second-row seats; up to 22-inch wheels; a towing package; luggage racks; and an Autoride electronic suspension. Car and Driver lists options such 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. Kelley Blue Book adds the Suburban offers retractable running boards for those who might otherwise have "trouble climbing aboard."
It's easy to tailor a Suburban to truly suburban family-hauling duties or for weekend horse trailering-but it can get quite expensive, as the $40,000 Suburban could easily pass $55,000 with the most luxurious options.
