2010 Chevrolet Suburban Trims

LS 1500

Avg. Price: $24,507

The roomy and capable 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LS 1500 full-size SUV offers a boatload of standard safety, appearance, comfort, and convenience features to go along with a truckload of available options. Standard amenities include 17-inch alloy wheels, trailer hitch and wiring, roof rack, premium cloth upholstery, nine-passenger seating, power driver’s seat, tilt-wheel steering, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power accessories, cruise, dual-zone air conditioning, OnStar telecommunications capability, and a single-CD audio system with six speakers and satellite radio. Options include the Heavy-Duty Trailering Package, DVD navigation/rearview camera package, power sunroof, 20-inch aluminum wheels, rear-seat DVD entertainment, remote start, power-adjustable pedals, and Bose premium audio, while four-wheel ABS, traction and stability control, front side airbags, three-row head airbags, the OnStar post-collision safety system, and daytime running lights are among the standard safety features.

Packing a 5.3-liter, E85-capable Flex Fuel (FFV) V8 powerplant and six-speed automatic transmission, the rear-wheel-drive 2010 Suburban uses its 320 hp and 335 lb-ft of torque to haul up to 8,100 pounds of trailer. The 5.3-liter V8, though variable-valve-timed (VVT) and featuring cylinder deactivation at highway speeds, still gets EPA-estimated mileage of only 15/21 mpg.

LS 1500 4WD

Avg. Price: $25,775

Part-time, on-demand four-wheel drive (4WD) distinguishes the 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LS 1500 4WD from its rear-wheel-drive sibling. Otherwise, this weather-capable full-size SUV boasts all the same creature comforts, appearance features, safety items, and options as its brethren, while auto-locking hubs, electronic hi-lo gear selection, and an available locking rear differential as well as its optional Off-Road Package help carry passengers and cargo far from the madding crowds.

The 2010 Chevy Suburban LS 1500 4WD is equipped with the 320-hp, 335-lb-ft/torque 5.3-liter Flex Fuel V8 and six-speed automatic transmission and can haul some 7,900 pounds of trailer when properly equipped. EPA estimates are unavailable for the LS 1500 4WD, but be advised that 4WD vehicles can be counted on to lose a bit of fuel efficiency in comparison with their rear-wheel-drive compatriots.

LS 2500

The brawny, rear-wheel-drive 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LS 2500 full-size SUV packs a 6.0-liter V8 powerplant that, under the management of its standard six-speed auto-manual transmission, pounds out 352 hp and 382 lb-ft of torque. This potent V8 features heavy-duty engine and transmission cooling systems, as well as variable-valve timing (VVT) and Flex Fuel (FFV) capability, and cylinder deactivation at cruising speeds. Despite all this, while EPA fuel-economy figures are unavailable, rest assured that the 6.0-liter FFV V8 has a hefty appetite for gas, and even more so for E85 ethanol-based fuel.

Able to tow some 9,600 pounds when properly equipped, the nine-passenger 2010 Suburban LS 2500 coddles passengers with all the same standard and optional amenities as its 1500 sibling. Such amenities include power windows, door locks, and mirrors, cruise control, dual-zone air conditioning, and a single-CD player with six speakers and satellite radio reception, as well as the available DVD navigation/rearview camera package, power sunroof, and rear-seat DVD entertainment.

Pile the family or the crew and the camping gear or the heavy equipment into the four-wheel-drive (4WD) 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LS 2500 4WD, and head out overland to the campsite or a job site. All the creature comforts and safety features of the Suburban LS trim level, as well as on-demand 4WD with auto-locking hubs, electronic hi-low gear selection, and a center-mounted, mechanical locking differential ensure a safe and comfortable trek, no matter where the trail leads.

This trekking is made possible by the 2010 Chevy Suburban LS 2500 4WD’s 6.0-liter V8 and six-speed auto-manual transmission, which place 352 hp and 382 lb-ft of torque at the disposal of all four wheels when needed. Flex-Fuel capability (FFV), variable-valve-timing (VVT), and cylinder deactivation all conspire, with varying success, to keep the 6.0-lter V8 from becoming too demanding on the fuel budget while towing some 9,300 pounds of trailer.

LT 1500

Avg. Price: $27,127

Adding even more standard amenities to an already impressive list, the rear-wheel-drive 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 full-size SUV pampers eight passengers with such goodies as leather upholstery, front bucket seats, remote start, three-zone climate control, nine Bose premium speakers, and OnStar/Bluetooth communications, as well as available heated seats, universal remote garage door opener, and a ground effects package.

Packing the standard Flex Fuel 5.3-liter V8 and six-speed automatic transmission, the 2010 Suburban LT 1500 is capable of burning E85 fuel as well as regular unleaded, and throws down 320 hp and 335 lb-ft of torque. This all translates into 8,100 pounds of trailer-towing ability at an EPA-estimated 15/21 mpg.

LT 1500 4WD

Avg. Price: $28,770

Packing the identical standard and available goodies as its rear-wheel-drive sibling, the 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4WD, as its moniker implies, throws part-time four-wheel drive (4WD) into the mix. The on-demand 4WD system features electronic hi-lo gear selection, auto-locking hubs, and a mechanical, center-mounted locking differential.

The standard 320-hp, 335-lb-ft/torque 5.3-liter Flex Fuel V8 engine is managed by the usual six-speed automatic transmission to haul 7,900 pounds of trailer and tote 1,563 pounds of payload inside its no-rear-seat 137 cubic feet of cargo area. The EPA has no mileage figures for the 2010 Suburban LT 1500 4WD, but fuel economy for 4WD trims is always marginally less than that of a RWD equivalent.

LT 2500

Avg. Price: $28,758

The 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LT 2500 contributes an additional 32 hp and 47 lb-ft of torque to the lineup with its variable-valve-timed (VVT) 6.0-liter Flex Fuel (FFV) V8 engine and six-speed auto-manual transmission. All this power means that the hefty rear-wheel-drive full-size SUV will comfortably haul 9,600 pounds when properly equipped, and also means that it gulps either unleaded gasoline or E85 ethanol-based fuel in necessarily prodigious amounts.

Equipped similarly to its 3/4-ton 1500 sibling, the 2010 Suburban LT 2500 offers one of the roomiest cabins in the business - 137 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded - and impressive visibility as well as available 20-inch aluminum wheels, DVD navigation, a rear-view camera, power sunroof, and rear-seat DVD entertainment. Additional safety features for the LT 2500 include fog lights and available rain-sensing wipers.

With on-demand four-wheel-drive (4WD) capability, the 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LT 2500 4WD carries eight passengers and three-quarters of a ton of cargo up and down goat paths with alacrity and style. This beefy and roomy full-size SUV is equipped identically to its rear-wheel-drive sibling insofar as standard amenities, safety features, and options, including the Z71 Off-Road Package, are concerned, and like the entire Suburban lineup, it boasts 137 cubic feet of cargo area.

Sporting a Flex Fuel 6.0-liter V8 under the tutelage of a standard six-speed auto-manual transmission, the 2010 Suburban LT 2500 4WD pounds out 352 hp and 382 lb-ft of torque while gulping E85 ethanol fuel or regular unleaded at a prodigious clip. Trailer-towing capacity drops marginally with the 4WD configuration to some 9,300 pounds with the available Heavy-Duty Trailering Package installed.

LTZ 1500

Avg. Price: $33,639

The top-shelf 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ 1500 boasts such additional standard amenities as a power liftgate, 20-inch alloy wheels, heated, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, reclining second-row bucket seats, reverse-tilt, power-retracting exterior mirrors, remote garage door opener, rearview-camera-integrated DVD navigation system, memory for driver’s settings, and 10-speaker Bose premium audio. Power-retractable side-steps are among the additional options offered by this seven-passenger full-size SUV. There is no LTZ 2500 edition available.

The 2010 Suburban LTZ 1500 packs a standard 5.3-liter V8 that, when managed by its accompanying six-speed automatic transmission, puts out 320 hp and 335 lb-ft of torque. Despite variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation, the 5.3-liter V8 only manages some 15/21 mpg, but it can tow 8,100 pounds when properly equipped.

LTZ 1500 4WD

Avg. Price: $35,874

The half-ton-only 2010 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ 1500 4WD is the flagship of the Suburban fleet. With on-demand four-wheel drive piled on top of the various added amenities, options, and safety features also offered with the rear-wheel-drive LTZ 1500, this capable, roomy, go-anywhere full-size SUV teeters on luxury while retaining prodigious cargo capacity and rugged, truck-like attributes.

As with all its 1500 brethren, the 2010 Suburban LTZ 1500 4WD is powered by a 320-hp, 335-lb-ft/torque 5.3-liter Flex Fuel V8, managed by the standard six-speed automatic transmission. This combo can tow 7,900 pounds when properly equipped, but despite variable valve timing and cylinder-deactivation technology, gulps gas at a staggering rate and is even harder on E85 ethanol fuel.
