2016 Chevrolet Suburban vs. Competition

 

VALUE AND TECHNOLOGY PUT THE 2016 CHEVY SUBURBAN OUT ON TOP IN A BATTLE WITH THE 2016 FORD EXPEDITION AND 2016 GMC YUKON XL

 

It’s only natural for families in the market for a full-size SUV to want to compare the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban with the 2016 Ford Expedition and 2016 GMC Yukon XL.  In such a matchup, however, the Chevy comes out ahead, as it offers technology that simply can’t be found on Ford products while offering greater value than the nearly identical Yukon XL.

 

IF DRIVERS ARE DECIDING BETWEEN THE 2016 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN AND 2016 GMC YUKON, WHY WOULD THEY PAY MORE FOR THE SAME SUV?

 

The 2016 Chevrolet Suburban models for sale in Fox Lake, IL at Ray Chevrolet are built on the exact same platform as the 2016 GMC Yukon XL.  They’re even powered by the same engine - a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 that generates 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque - that’s standard on the 2016 Yukon XL  SLE and SLT.  This means that, though there are some marginal differences in terms of dimensions due to variations in body styling, these two SUVs are more or less the exact same vehicle at a mechanical level.  MSRPs on the 2016 Suburban range from $49,700 to $67,440, however, while the starting price of the 2016 Yukon XL runs from $51,015 to $71,025.  The 2016 Suburban is even offered with most of the same advanced features as the 2016 Yukon XL, though still at a lower price per comparatively equipped trim.  A 4WD Suburban LTZ that starts at $67,440, for instance, comes standard with Magnetic Ride Control™, Forward Collision Alert, OnStar® 4G LTE® Wi-Fi®, Front and Rear Park Assist, and a Bose® Centerpoint® Surround Sound premium 10-speaker system, all of which are included on the $71,025 Yukon XL Denali.  Given that the max towing capability of 8,000 lbs. on the Suburban LTZ (8,300 lbs. on 2WD) is superior to the 7,900 lbs. capacity on the Yukon XL Denali (8,100 lbs. on 2WD) despite the GMC product having a larger 6.2L V8 that only gets 14 city MPG, the choice between the two models is clear.

 

THE 2016 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN IS OFFERED WITH TECHNOLOGY THAT SIMPLY CAN’T BE FOUND ON THE 2016 FORD EXPEDITION

 

Every 2016 Chevrolet Suburban for sale in Fox Lake at Ray Chevrolet features built-in 4G LTE® Internet Wi-Fi® hotspot capability.  This enables each passenger in the vehicle to access the Internet on their own using smartphones, tablets, and laptops that are equipped with Wi-Fi® technology.  The 2016 Suburbans at Ray Chevrolet also feature the full array of OnStar® services and total Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® compatibility.  While the 2016 Ford Expedition is equipped with a Sync® Enhanced Voice Recognition Communications and Entertainment System that enables hands-free calling and music play, this system does not feature built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot technology.  This means that passengers cannot access the Internet from their own personal devices.

 

THE 2016 SUBURBAN LTZ COMES STANDARD WITH MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL… A TECHNOLOGY FORD DOESN’T EVEN OFFER

 

One of the other technologies that separates the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban from the 2016 Ford Expedition is the Magnetic Ride Control™ Suspension Package that’s standard on the Suburban LTZ.  A next-generation real-time damping system that uses electro-magnets to change damping fluid properties thousands of times a second, Magnetic Ride Control™ provides traction, steering, and body-roll mitigation that is superior to conventional suspensions systems.  Because it has no moving valves, it’s also more resilient and easy to maintain than conventional suspension systems.  While Magnetic Ride Control™ is standard on the 2016 Suburban LTZ for sale in Fox Lake, IL at Ray Chevrolet; however, it’s not even available on any Ford product, including the 2016 Expedition.
