2018 Chevrolet Suburban vs. Its Competition

2018 Chevrolet Suburban
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Three-row, full-size SUVs don’t change very often, so it’s big news when they do.

This year, the Ford Expedition is all-new and looks poised to lure buyers with its classy interior and smooth-riding fully independent suspension.

The Nissan Armada follows the same recipe, although it’s sized more like Chevy’s smaller Tahoe.

Toyota’s Sequoia is showing its age, but it remains reliable and durable.

And if you’re going to look at a Suburban, you owe it to yourself to test out the nearly identical GMC Yukon.
