2005 Chevrolet Suburban Overview

Aside from new side assist steps, enhanced stereo system, and optional touchscreen navigation system, the Chevy Suburban didn't change much for 2005. This extended SUV has 13 trims and has 5.3 L and 6.0 L V8 powertrains. All trims have 4 doors and seat 9.

Maximum towing capacity ranges anywhere from 8-12000 lbs. depending on the trim. Cargo capacity comes out to a roomy 132 cubic feet. Finally, the Chevy Suburban gives you your choice of 4WD or RWD drivetrain configurations.

Overall, the Suburban gets props for its roomy interior and capable powertrain choices. On the other hand, the lengthy body makes it tough to navigate tight areas and the build materials could use some improvement. If you've got a small sports team or sizable group to transport to and fro, the 2005 Chevy Suburban does the job just as well as any other domestic SUV.
