The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The workhorse 2009 Chevrolet Suburban is far from glamorous, but it gets the job done, in comfort. 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.
