2014 Chevrolet Suburban Overview

Is the 2014 Chevrolet Suburban a Good Used SUV?

The 2014 Chevrolet Suburban is a good large SUV for families who need maximum space but can tolerate minimum luxury. Unlike many competing SUVs that carry up to eight passengers, the Suburban can accommodate up to nine. Still, if you're looking for style and quality, its plastic-heavy cabin will disappointment. Adding to its antiquated interior is the Suburban's lack of a power-folding third row to access additional cargo space.

Used 2014 Chevrolet Suburban Performance and Interior

The 2014 Chevy Suburban's 320-horsepower V8 engine produces sufficient power for everyday local and highway driving. When towing, trailering, or carrying a full load of passengers or cargo, however, the engine feels taxed. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. Fuel economy estimates are average for the class, at 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. Ride comfort is good, but like most large SUVs, the Suburban feels clumsy around corners.

The 2014 Chevrolet Suburban's cabin looks pleasing enough, but its rivals have a less pedestrian look and use higher-quality materials. The Chevy Suburban comes standard with seating for eight. The base model is available with seating for nine, while the two upper trims have available seating for seven. Adults will have plenty of space in any row. There are complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors in the second-row outboard seats and upper tether anchors in each of the three third-row seats. The Suburban has one of the largest cargo capacities in the class – a maximum 137.4 cubic feet. However, most competitors offer a power-folding third row to make accessing the extra cargo space easy. The Suburban forces you through the laborious process of manually removing the third row to increase cargo space.

The Suburban comes standard with Bluetooth, a USB port, tri-zone climate control, and remote start. The Suburban's dashboard and audio controls are straightforward, as is its available touch-screen navigation system.

Should I Consider Another Used Suburban?

The 2014 Suburban was the final model year in the SUV’s tenth generation, which began with the 2007 model year. Some earlier 10th-generation model years – like 2012 and 2013 – are less expensive and nearly identical to the 2014 Suburban in features and design. However, the 2014 model's addition of a standard rearview camera and rear parking sensors may make it the best choice within the generation.

Which Used Chevrolet Suburban Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Chevy Suburban is available in three trims: LS, LT, and LTZ. The base Suburban LS comes with a six-speaker stereo, remote start, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a USB port, tri-zone climate control, and OnStar connected services. If you need seating for nine, choose the Suburban LS, which offers an available front-row bench seat. The two upper trims offer either seven or eight seats. The Suburban LT adds leather upholstery, heated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a nine-speaker Bose stereo. The top Suburban LTZ trim includes heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, a power-remote liftgate, touch-screen navigation, a 10-speaker Bose surround-sound stereo, a heated steering wheel, side blind zone alert, and perforated leather seating in the first two rows.

Because of the Suburban's low reliability score, a certified pre-owned model might give you some peace of mind. For all of its certified pre-owned vehicles, Chevy extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to six years or 100,000 miles and provides a one-year/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. Chevrolet CPO vehicles must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Chevy’s warranty page carefully.

2014 Chevrolet Suburban and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Chevrolet Suburban or 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe?

The Chevy Tahoe has a few advantages over the Suburban, including its higher reliability rating and more composed handling around corners. The Tahoe's cabin is also better looking than the Suburban's, and it comes with more standard features. Unfortunately, both SUVs' interiors are made with some cheap plastics, and their third rows must be removed for maximum cargo space. For 2014, the Tahoe was named our Best Large SUV for the Money and Best Large SUV for Families.

Which Is Better: 2014 Chevrolet Suburban or 2014 Ford Expedition?

The Ford Expedition and Chevy Suburban are alike in both good and disappointing ways. Both have cheap cabin materials and engines that struggle to tow. Both also have an adult-friendly third row and a smooth ride. The Expedition has the benefit of an available power-folding third row and a few more standard features. However, the Suburban is the way to go if you need maximum seating and cargo space.
