2014 SEMA Show: Chevrolet Suburban Premium Outdoors Concept

Article by Andrew Christian, on November 7, 2014

Chevrolet’s new Suburban Premium Outdoors Concept follows the same philosophy as the Tahoe Premium Outdoors Concept and takes the well-known SUV to a new level. What’s more interesting is that the concept gets the larger 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine rated at 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, replacing the standard EcoTec3 5.3-liter V8 rated at 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.

The sound of the new V8 engine is enhanced by the new Borla exhaust system fitted with come, side-exit exhaust tip from Chevrolet Accessories. Just like the Tahoe Premium Outdoors Concept, the new Suburban Premium Outdoors Concept gets new Brembo six-piston front brake calipers with high-performance brake pads and 16-inch slotted rotors.

The exterior design is enhanced by the 22-inch wheels from Chevrolet Accessories featuring body-color accents and by the Pepperdust color with Warm Tarnished accents.

Inside, we find a leather-trimmed Saddle and Cocoa-colored cabin with Mustard piping, complemented by Warm Tarnished trim accents and a suede-trimmed headliner and plush.

In the trunk, the SUV arrives with a concept tailgating package that includes a big-screen, smart HDTV as well as a handcrafted table and benches made of wood salvaged from deconstructed Detroit homes.

Chevrolet Suburban Premium Outdoors Concept

Like the Tahoe concept, the Suburban Premium Outdoors concept takes a more luxurious approach to capability and injects a dose of high performance into the mix, with the 6.2L V-8 engine offered in the Silverado lineup.

The production Suburban's standard engine is the EcoTec3 5.3L V-8, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, but the larger-displacement 6.2L, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft., gives the Premium Outdoors concept an 18-percent increase in horsepower and a 20-percent boost in torque. The Borla exhaust system and chrome, side-exit exhaust tip from Chevrolet Accessories announces the new engine with authority.

And like the Tahoe concept, the Suburban Premium Outdoors concepts wears concept Brembo six-piston front brake calipers with performance brake pads and 16-inch slotted rotors.

The bold exterior features a Pepperdust color with Warm Tarnished accents, along with body-colored door handles and front fascia in place of the standard chrome components. There's also a concept grille insert, retractable running boards and Chevrolet Accessories 22-inch wheels with body-color accents.

A leather-trimmed Saddle and Cocoa-colored cabin with Mustard piping gives the Suburban's interior a unique ambience that's complemented with Warm Tarnished trim accents, a suede-trimmed headliner and plush, contemporary loop-carpet floor mats. It also features Chevrolet Accessories illuminated sill plates.

And while the more powerful Suburban Premium Outdoors concept is designed to take its passengers just about anywhere, it's also well-equipped to stay put during big games, with a concept tailgating package in the cargo area that includes a big-screen, smart HDTV, along with a handcrafted table and benches made of wood salvaged from deconstructed Detroit homes. Hot dogs and potato salad sold separately.
