For decades, the Chevy Suburban has stood out as being one of only a few SUVs that can manage towing trailers and hauling passengers. Though options have grown for handling this multi-tasking feat, the Chevy Suburban and the Chevy Tahoe have ranked among the best used SUVs for towing, according to Kelley Blue Book®.
The Chevy Suburban was engineered to handle itself well. KBB® applauded the SUV for its nine-passenger seating and 137 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded. The Suburban was also praised for its heavy-duty suspension and axles, 352-horsepower 6.0-liter V8 engine, and 9,600-pound trailering capability. Plus, KBB pointed out that with a payload of over a ton, the Suburban can easily handle towing a loaded trailer plus passengers and belongings.
KBB also recognized the Chevy Tahoe as one of the best thanks to its dependable and well-built rear axle, which improves the SUV’s off-road performance. With the 5.3-liter V8 engine, the Tahoe can haul a trailer ranging from 7,500-8,200 pounds. As a full-size, three-row SUV, the Tahoe remains a fan favorite among consumers.
