Chevy Suburban RST Performance Package finally adds the big engine

  • 2019 Chevy Suburban RST Performance Package

But that's been fixed this year with the 2019 Chevy Suburban RST Performance Package. For the RST Performance Package, Chevrolet has given it a calibration revamp, for even more poise at speed. A 10-speed automatic is paired to the V8, allowing for reduced engine revs at cruising speeds.

When Chevrolet added its 6.2-liter V8 to the Tahoe to create the Tahoe RST, we took it for a spin and called it a full-size SUV hot rod.

Chevrolet is giving the 2019 Suburban RST a Performance Package to put some muscle behind the bad-boy looks of what has been largely a show-but-no-more-go appearance package.

"The RST Performance Package made its debut on the Tahoe RST last spring, and the response from our customers was overwhelmingly positive", said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevy Trucks Marketing and Advertising.

He also went to a ME hospital with a broken bone in his neck after falling at his home in Kennebunkport in 2015. They had been married for 73 years, making them the longest married presidential couple in USA history.

The Magnetic Ride Control suspension has a new performance tune for better body control and responsiveness.

Magnetic Ride Control is an active suspension that "reads" the road every millisecond, triggering damping changes in the electronically controlled shock absorbers in as few as 5 milliseconds. The Suburban RST has simply been all show. An exhaust system from Borla improves exhaust flow by 28%, while also adding performance and improved fuel consumption; and Brembo provides a brake upgrade featuring six-piston calipers, improved pads, and larger rotors. "When you want to relax, it is very refined, with exceptional ride comfort and interior quietness". The big V-8 puts out 460 pounds-feet of torque and the towing rating is expected to be 8,100 pounds.

The RST Performance Package will be available on the 2019 Suburban. In its place the package adds a body-color grille surround and door handles, gloss-black grille and mirror caps, and black roof rails, window trim, badging and Chevy bowties. A set of 22-inch alloy wheels wrapped with 285/45 tires is standard fit.
