The new RST Performance Package will be the first Suburban that uses the 420hp 6.2-liter V8 engine. "Delivering on those requests with the Suburban RST Performance Package is another example of how Chevrolet has continually invested in the segment, developing models with combinations of capability, technology and performance to meet the needs of different customers". A 10-speed automatic is paired to the V8, allowing for reduced engine revs at cruising speeds.

We've seen Chevrolet's sporty RST trim level before, most recently with spy photos of the Silverado wearing the trim, and before that, on the Tahoe.

Chevy says the package also includes performance tuning for the RST's adaptive suspension system that increases body control and grip.

Recall, the Suburban and Tahoe RST made their debuts past year, but the Performance package has only been available for the Tahoe RST. It's an active suspension that can adjust damping stiffness in about 5 milliseconds, leading to a ride that's either smooth or taut as conditions require. The package also adds a body-colored grille surround, body-colored door handles, plus black paint on the grille, the mirror caps, the roof rails, the trim around the windows, and the badges.

It's still a Suburban at heart, though, with three rows of space, a boatload of cargo capacity and a towing capacity of 8,100 pounds. A set of 22-inch alloy wheels wrapped with 285/45 tires is standard fit.

The RST Performance Package will be available on the 2019 Suburban. Duralife™ rotors feature a hardened surface to reduce corrosion. Full performance metrics will be announced closer to launch. Today, Tahoe is the top selling vehicle in the segment, and Tahoe and Suburban account for almost one out of every two Full-Size SUV sales when combined.

The full-size SUV now pumps out 420 horsepower, and is even more refined with Magnetic Ride Control.


Note: Borla, and not GM is responsible for the safety, quality and warranty for the accessory brake and exhaust systems.
