    Chevrolet is an automotive pioneer that’s helped shape the American landscape since the 1900s when racecar driver Louis Chevrolet teamed up with savvy businessman and GM founder William C. Durant to build affordable, high-performance vehicles. While the partnership eventually fizzled, Chevrolet flourished as a brand and gave us many firsts, including the Suburban Carryall in 1935. As the industry's unofficial first SUV, the Suburban kickstarted an incredible legacy that continues today.

    That legacy is readily apparent when comparing the 2025 Chevy Suburban vs 2024 Chevy Suburban. This best-selling SUV is in its twelfth generation, which debuted in 2021 and is the longest-running nameplate in the industry. Its success is attributed to the Suburban’s versatility, value-oriented packaging, and frequent updates that keep it relevant. We see this firsthand for 2025, as Chevrolet gave its largest SUV a mid-cycle refresh to bolster its appeal and value.

    The 2025 Suburban’s glam-up makes it more appealing and better equipped in every regard, from its technology and design to its powertrain and features. It is tech-savvy and ready to tackle whatever the road has in store—a trait it shares with its predecessor as a work- and adventure-ready road warrior. But what does the latest update mean for potential Suburban buyers?

    While you can’t go wrong with the 2024 or 2025 model, there are a few key updates worth mentioning. These updates give the 2025 Suburban a distinct advantage and appeal as a tech-savvy powerhouse that offers more for your money. Here’s a closer look at those updates and how the 2025 Suburban compares to the 2024 Suburban in the award-winning Chevy lineup.

  • Trim Levels

    Six Different Outfits

    The 2025 Suburban and 2024 Suburban share the same six-trim lineup that offers distinct personalities, capabilities, and a progressive lineup of features. The Suburban family starts with the well-equipped LS and LT and moves to the sportier RST, the adventurous Z71, the bold Premier, and the luxurious High Country. However, Chevrolet differentiates the trims in 2025 by adding unique design cues that usher the Suburban into a new era of modernity and sophistication.

    The 2024 Suburban boasts the classic Chevrolet design that mimics the best-selling Silverado 1500. With that pickup’s recent upgrades, the 2025 Suburban follows suit as Chevrolet finetunes the design to reflect its truck sibling. The result is exceptional, with the 2025 Suburban featuring integrated daytime running lights that give it a sleek aesthetic. New lighting animations on top-tier trims like the Premier and High Country add refinement and showcase Chevrolet’s keen attention to detail while maintaining signature elements like the dual C-shaped lights.

    The 2025 Suburban also differentiates itself with more tire options, including 24-inch tires that give the SUV a higher, more confident, and athletic stance. To complement this, you’ll find a few new exterior colors that give you the freedom to showcase your personality. Chevrolet adds Cypress Gray and Lakeshore Blue Metallic to the Suburban’s color palette, with the 2024 Suburban featuring hues like Silver Sage Metallic, Sterling Gray Metallic, and Radiant Red Tintcoat.

    In addition to exterior updates, the 2025 Suburban also introduces an updated interior that makes it feel more spacious than the 2024 Suburban. Chevrolet accomplishes this without altering the SUV’s wheelbase by lowering the instrument panel and softening the interior lines to make the space feel visibly larger. The 2024 Suburban’s center console and steering wheel are also updated in the 2025 model, with Chevrolet repositioning the console to heighten accessibility and redesigning the steering wheel to reflect the streamlined interior aesthetic. Top-tier trims like the High Country also enjoy a few firsts, including authentic wood accents and wingtip perforated leather seating that add another layer of opulence to this SUV.

  • Performance

    Powerful Engines

    The Suburban is no slouch when it comes to performance, with the 2025 and 2024 models proving full-size SUVs can be agile and engaging to drive. Chevrolet accomplishes this feat with the Suburban’s three-engine lineup that features two V8 engines and a potent diesel powerhouse that blends performance and efficiency. So, what’s the biggest difference between the 2025 and 2024 Suburbans in terms of performance?

    The Suburban’s V8 engines are the same for 2025 and 2024, with the SUV rolling off Chevrolet’s production line with a standard 5.3L V8 engine and ten-speed automatic transmission. The combination produces 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, which is impressive for a base powerplant and yields the Suburban’s highest trailering capacity of 8,400 lbs on the 2024 model. Drivers looking for more power can turn to the 6.2L V8 engine, which produces 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

    For 2025, Chevrolet used everything in its wheelhouse to improve the Duramax Turbo-Diesel. The result is impressive, with the 3.0L inline-six Turbo-Diesel seeing a 10% increase in horsepower and a 7.6% increase in torque over its 2024 predecessor. The numbers tell the full story, with the Duramax delivering 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque in the 2024 Suburban and 305 hp and 495 lb-ft of torque in the 2025 model. Chevrolet achieves this higher output by refining the Duramax’s turbo compressor, adding higher-flow fuel injectors, revising the piston-cooling oil jets, and improving the temperature control features that work with the Active Thermal Management seat to keep the engine at the optimal temperature.

    Apart from the significant increase in power from the Duramax, the 2025 and 2024 Suburbans continue to offer exceptional handling and responsiveness because of first-in-class features. For example, both year models offer Magnetic Ride Control and a four-corner air ride adaptive suspension. The latter automatically adjusts the Suburban’s height to improve efficiency while also giving the driver control over the height to make ingress and egress easier and improve ground clearance when venturing off the pavement.

  • Technology

    Cabin and Safety Tech

    Technology is another key area that differentiates the 2025 Suburban from the 2024 model. While these SUVs are both well-equipped and tech-savvy, the 2025 iteration introduces newer technologies that showcase Chevy’s promise to improve the driver’s experience. These updates stretch from new trailering, connectivity, safety, and driver assistance tech that build on the features found in the 2024 Suburban. How so?

    The 2024 Suburban turned heads when it debuted with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an expansive 10.2-inch color touchscreen with the Chevrolet infotainment system, Google Built-In, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and seamless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Those features are a staple on the 2025 model, but the newer Suburban further benefits from a larger display setup: Chevrolet slightly decreases the driver information center to 11.0 inches to make room for the best-in-class 17.7-inch freeform infotainment screen. With the display canted toward the driver, it’s easy to access and intuitive to use without interfering with your focus or creating discord with the Suburban’s refined interior aesthetic.

    Apart from the larger displays, the 2025 Suburban builds on the 2024 Suburban’s suite of towing, safety, and driver assistance technologies. For example, the 2024 Suburban features the Chevrolet Trailing App, but the 2025 Suburban adds new tools like Trailer Tire Health, Forward Path Indication, Boat Ramp Assist, Trailer Navigation, and Load Rating Info via the app. These tools complement other components and features, like the integrated trailer brake controller, Hill Descent Control, Blind Zone Steering Assist with Trailering, and Hitch View.

    The 2025 Suburban also introduces more enhanced safety technologies that improve the 2024 Suburban’s suite of features, which includes the hands-free driving tool Super Cruise, a thirteen-view camera system, Adaptive Cruise Control, a 15.0-inch head-up display, a rear camera mirror, an HD Surround Vision camera, Rear Pedestrian Alert, and the Chevy Safety Assist suite.

    Most notably, Chevrolet introduces a new integrated sensor and camera system that instills confidence and peace of mind. The Connected Cameras feature is a network of integrated cameras that offer 360-degree views around the Suburban and provides automatic Crash Recording, Live View, and Security Recording stored in the industry’s first cloud storage system. This feature gives the 2025 Suburban a notable advantage over the 2024 model, particularly with drivers looking for another layer of digital protection in the event of theft or a collision.
