Chevrolet offers the new Suburban RST Performance Package for 2019. Featuring a 420-hp, 6.2L V-8 engine, Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration and a new Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission, the Suburban RST Performance Package brings a seamless blend of style and performance to Chevy's portfolio of full-size SUVs.
This is the first time Suburban offers the 6.2L V-8, which boasts 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The engine delivers three state-of-the-art technologies: direct injection, Active Fuel Management and continuously variable valve timing, to make the most of power, torque and efficiency across a broad range of operating conditions.
Suburban RST also features a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Smaller steps between each ratio maximize engine power under acceleration. With a wide 7.39 overall gear ratio spread and lower numerical top gear ratio, the transmission also reduces engine revolutions at highway speeds.
Magnetic Ride Control is an active suspension that "reads" the road every millisecond, triggering damping changes in the electronically controlled shock absorbers in as few as 5 milliseconds. As a result, the suspension delivers both improved body-motion control during cornering and a more comfortable ride while cruising. The new performance calibration included in the Suburban RST Performance Package increases body control for even higher levels of responsiveness and comfort.
Styling is based largely on trends in the aftermarket space -- virtually all chrome trim has been eliminated for a sporty, street appearance. Changes include body-color grille surround and door handles; gloss-black grille and mirror caps; and black roof rails, window trim, badging and Chevy bowties.
RST package also includes 22-inch wheels wrapped in Bridgestone tires. The Suburban RST boasts a towing capacity of 8,100 pounds.
