Is it true that the upcoming 2024 Chevrolet Suburban will have an electric version? There have been rumors about it, stating that the new Suburban will likely come with an electrification plan. However, whether it would be in a hybrid version or a fully electric model is unclear. Nevertheless, learning new things about the Suburban is always interesting because there is always further information about the line – and the possibility of the latest updates of the Suburban. So, what can you expect from it?
The Possibility of the 2024 Chevy Suburban EV?
As mentioned before, although there have been rumors about the Suburban EV, Chevy themselves haven’t confirmed anything. They are still in the hush-hush stage, where they won’t reveal much information regarding their upcoming production. However, it’s worth noting that the forthcoming 2024 Chevrolet Suburban will get a lot of upgrades and changes, which the transformations would be most visible on the rear and also front fascias.
In case you don’t know, the Suburban has been known as the biggest full-size SUV within its class. It’s even longer than Tahoe (15 inches longer), having a cavernous cargo area that should be big enough to accommodate all kinds of suitcases and bags. Even if there is no electric powertrain in the updates, several engine options might be available, which may cover different types (and sizes) of V6 and V8 units.
Exterior and Interior Design
It’s predicted that the new Suburban will have a more modern design and style – even better than before. The front fascia seems to have updated headlamps, which somewhat share similarities to the newest Silverado. On the back, it appears that the Suburban gets new taillights also with new graphics.
For the interior cabin, it should be newer, plusher, and more comfortable. It’s possible that Chevrolet would add more luxurious details and better materials to create a better ambiance in the cabin. The space would be much better, with a roomier third row. There seems to be a bigger screen on the dashboard, possibly designed to accommodate the newest infotainment system. It is rumored that Chevy is considering implementing its autonomous Super Cruise driving technology, but they haven’t confirmed it yet.
Powertrain and Performance
There would be more than one unit being offered. The first would be the V8 unit with a 5.3-liter capacity, generating 355 hp and 383 Nm of torque. This would be paired with an auto 6-speed transmission and rear-wheel driving system. All wheels would be available as an alternative option. The second powertrain would be the four-cylinder turbocharged unit with a 2.7-liter capacity, churning 310 hp and 348 Nm of torque. This would be paired up with an auto 8-speed transmission.
The third option would be the V8 unit with a 6.2-liter capacity, delivering 420 hp and 460 Nm of torque. You have the opportunity to go with an auto 8-speed or 10-speed transmission. This one would be offered in the RST trim level. So far, there hasn’t been any information about the electric variant, although many have been hopeful. A lot of people expect the new electricity will be disclosed soon enough.

Price and Release Date
Since the details for the upcoming 2024 Suburban are still somewhat shady, we can’t be sure about the price and release date. But due to the updated works done to the 2024 model, expect it to have increased price tags. The current price tag for the base LS trim starts at around $53,000, while the High Country (the highest trim and the most expensive one) is approximately $74,000. You can expect increased prices from those figures. The 2024 Chevrolet Suburban may take place in fall 2023, so stay tuned!
