2021 Chevy Suburban DIESEL

The redesigned 2021 Chevrolet Suburban has arrived with some new engine choices. Initially, it was a pair of gas-drinking V8s, but now a diesel-sipping six has arrived. This is our first time behind the wheel of the 2021 Suburban packing Duramax heat. There’s a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbodiesel engine under the hood. And it’s a damn fine, smooth option.

The Duramax diesel mill makes 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Backing that up is a 10-speed automatic gearbox. You can have 2WD or 4WD, and the diesel engine is available on every trim minus the off-road-oriented Suburban Z71. It’s a $995 upcharge on the LS, LT, RST, and Premier trims. If you want a High Country diesel, it’s a decrease in the price of $1,500.
