2019 Suburban RST Performance Package Lands this Summer
Chevrolet has tossed a new full-size performance SUV onto the market that gives buyers a larger SUV option than the already available Tahoe RST. The 2019 Suburban RST will land this summer and brings with it no shiny chrome, and instead is decked out with lots of black trim, and a body-color grille surround.
Beyond the aesthetic changes, the big feature is the 6.2L V8 that makes 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Chevy has released no performance numbers for us but promises they will come closer to launch. Suburban RST buyers also get specially tuned Magnetic Ride Control suspension, which can dynamically adapt the vehicle’s ride characteristics in as little as 5 milliseconds.
The big SUV rolls on 22-inch wheels with P285/45R22 tires. A Borla performance dual-side exit exhaust is also included, and Chevy will also offer an optional Brembo brake package for the big SUV. Even with its sporty nature, the RST will still tow up to 8,100 pounds.
