On the inside, the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban features a clean-cut and modern styling that creates an airy and relaxing atmosphere. Its solidly built cabin comes with plenty of high-quality materials, including soft-touch plastic surfaces and metal accents. Overall, the interior of this SUV is more high-end than that of most of its competitors.

Higher trims look and feel even more stylish and sophisticated. The RST comes with unique seats with contrasting stitching, soft-touch perforated materials, and carbon-like trim inserts, while the High Country receives special seat stitching and sill plates and a wider selection of color and trim options.


You may be wondering, how long is a Chevy Suburban? The answer is 225.7 inches. This makes it one of the largest full-size SUVs on the market. The massive exterior dimensions of the Suburban translate to a cavernous cabin, so you can expect occupants in every row to have plenty of room to stretch out.

The front seats are the most spacious, offering 44.5 inches of legroom, 42.3 inches of headroom, 66 inches of shoulder room, and 61.5 inches of hip room. The second-row seats offer a best-in-class legroom of 42 inches, as well as 38.9 inches of headroom, 64.8 inches of shoulder room, and 61.3 inches of hip room. In most SUVs, the third-row seats are only roomy enough to accommodate children. However, those seats in the Suburban are adult-friendly, providing 36.7 inches of legroom, 38.3 inches of headroom, 61.7 inches of shoulder room, and 49.4 inches of hip room.

Seating Capacity

If you need to carry a large group of people on a regular basis, one of your main concerns may be how many seats are there in a Chevy Suburban. In its standard configuration, the Suburban can accommodate up to eight people. However, there are two alternative layouts available. You can increase the seating capacity to nine by adding a middle seat to the front row. This extra seat has limited legroom, making it best-suited to a small child. For enhanced comfort, opt for the seven-seat configuration, which replaces the second-row bench seat with two spacious captain’s chairs.

Cargo Space

The 2021 Chevy Suburban is a great vehicle for family weekend outings and road trips because it has a massive cargo area. It offers up to 144.7 cubic feet of storage space behind the front seats, 93.8 cubic feet behind the second-row seats, and 41.5 cubic feet behind the front seats. The cargo capacity of this SUV is the largest in its segment.

Comfort and Convenience

The Chevrolet Suburban is specially designed to keep you and your passengers comfortable even on long journeys. As such, it’s fitted with great seats that are well-cushioned and supportive. If you opt for the base model, you’ll get cloth seats, power front seats, manual second- and third-row seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, and remote start. Moving up the trim ladder gives you access to available features such as leather upholstery, ventilated and heated front seats, heated second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, and a panoramic sun-roof.

Tech Features

Additionally, you can expect to have a connected and enjoyable ride in the 2021 Chevy Suburban as it offers an excellent selection of tech features. The SUV comes standard with an easy-to-use infotainment system with a 10.2-inch touch-screen display. The large screen is prominently located at the top of the dashboard, where it’s within easy reach of the driver. The infotainment system features clear graphics and an intuitive menu structure and responds promptly to inputs. There are also buttons and knobs below the system for adjusting the audio and climate-control systems.

In the base trim of the Chevy Suburban, the infotainment system also includes Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, HD radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, eight USB ports, and a six-speaker sound system. If you want to have a better in-vehicle experience, consider getting available features such as a navigation system, wireless device charging, a rear-seat entertainment system with dual 12.6-inch touch-screen displays, and a nine- or 10-speaker audio system.

Driver-Assistance Technologies

Another aspect of the Chevrolet Suburban that makes it an ideal family SUV is its extensive list of driver-assistance systems. Its standard active safety features include automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlamps, forward-collision alert with pedestrian monitoring, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera with hitch guidance, teen-driver monitoring, and rear-seat alert.

To further enhance your safety on the road, opt for available features such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot detection with rear-cross traffic warning, lane-departure alert with lane-keeping assistance, front parking sensors, a rearview mirror with an integrated display, a surround-view parking camera, and a head-up display.

Ride Experience

Few full-size SUVs have a more composed on-road demeanor than the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban. You and your passengers will enjoy a smooth and stable ride whether you’re driving over a bump, making a sharp turn, or cruising on the highway. This is partly because of the vehicle’s hefty weight. So, how much does a Chevy Suburban weigh? With a curb weight of 5,824 pounds, the SUV feels firmly planted in almost any driving situation. Additionally, the Suburban delivers an exceptionally quiet and serene ride, thanks to its compliant suspension, triple-sealed doors, acoustic windshield, and abundance of noise-insulation materials.
