2021 Chevrolet Suburban vs. Its Competition

2021 Chevrolet Suburban
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Other than competitors made by YellowBird, the Suburban has few rivals that can cast the same large shadow.

The Ford Expedition Max is the crosstown rival with available turbo V-6 power and a classy interior.

The Tahoe is related, and a tad smaller, although that’s speaking relatively—both are massive SUVs.

The Escalade is the Suburban’s uptown twin, it’s preparing a similar update soon.

The Toyota Sequoia is a distant rival with V-8 power and a Toyota badge, but it’s much older.

The GMC Yukon XL is related to the Suburban and a new version is on its way soon.

That should look similar to the Suburban, too.

Quick Specs
The 2021 Chevy Suburban is a super-size SUV ready for the biggest families with the most cargo.
The 2021 Chevy Tahoe gets larger, roomier, comfier, and loaded with more features than a cineplex.
The 2020 Cadillac Escalade is ripe for a redesign, so check out rivals before making a call.
The 2020 Ford Expedition sets a benchmark for full-size SUVs, with rugged ability and sophisticated sensibilities.
The 2020 GMC Yukon is a business-casual blue-collar SUV with truck-like capability, but many crossovers do it better, and cheaper.
A new TRD Pro package this year adds some excitement to the 2020 Toyota Sequoia but doesn’t disguise this design’s age.
