Like the Tahoe concept, the Suburban Premium Outdoors concept takes a more luxurious approach to capability and injects a dose of high performance into the mix, with the 6.2L V-8 engine offered in the Silverado lineup.
The production Suburban's standard engine is the EcoTec3 5.3L V-8, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, but the larger-displacement 6.2L, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft., gives the Premium Outdoors concept an 18-percent increase in horsepower and a 20-percent boost in torque. The Borla exhaust system and chrome, side-exit exhaust tip from Chevrolet Accessories announces the new engine with authority.
And like the Tahoe concept, the Suburban Premium Outdoors concepts wears concept Brembo six-piston front brake calipers with performance brake pads and 16-inch slotted rotors.
The bold exterior features a Pepperdust color with Warm Tarnished accents, along with body-colored door handles and front fascia in place of the standard chrome components. There's also a concept grille insert, retractable running boards and Chevrolet Accessories 22-inch wheels with body-color accents.
A leather-trimmed Saddle and Cocoa-colored cabin with Mustard piping gives the Suburban's interior a unique ambience that's complemented with Warm Tarnished trim accents, a suede-trimmed headliner and plush, contemporary loop-carpet floor mats. It also features Chevrolet Accessories illuminated sill plates.
And while the more powerful Suburban Premium Outdoors concept is designed to take its passengers just about anywhere, it's also well-equipped to stay put during big games, with a concept tailgating package in the cargo area that includes a big-screen, smart HDTV, along with a handcrafted table and benches made of wood salvaged from deconstructed Detroit homes. Hot dogs and potato salad sold separately.
