The 2013 Chevrolet Suburban is a serious family-hauling machine. Its robust powertrain and truck-based structure provide enough burly muscle to tow sizable trailers. The cabin provides upwards of nine seats plus a large cargo area to carry those passengers' luggage. Whether you're going across town or across the country, no other type of vehicle can boast this jack-of-all-trades ability to simultaneously transport lots of people and their toys. Powertrain choices for the 2013 Chevy Suburban start with the 1500 model's 5.3-liter V8 that makes 320 horsepower and 335 pound-feet of torque.
