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.
If you’re looking for a reliable, affordable used SUV in Fort Worth, Texas, our staff at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet agrees with KBB that the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe are excellent choices.

2021 Chevrolet Suburban
This full-size SUV offers up to 144.7 cubic feet of cargo space. But its ample room wasn’t the only thing attracting it to the judges at U.S. News. Soft-touch surfaces complete with metal accents give the SUV a modern yet comfortable atmosphere. Meanwhile, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and an available 4G LTE® Wi-Fi Hotspot help keep everyone entertained on long trips.
2021 Chevrolet Traverse
The 2021 Traverse is a mid-size SUV that impressed the judges with its spacious seats across all three rows and its best-in-class cargo space, which is up to 98.2 cubic feet. The Traverse can tow up to 5,000 pounds and still achieves 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, ensuring that you and your family won’t be making constant stops to refuel.* The hidden storage within the 2021 Traverse reduces clutter and adds convenience while the available hands-free power liftgate makes it easier than ever for busy parents to load and unload the cargo area.
Here at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe are two of our best-selling vehicles. What our customers may not realize is just how quickly the “RST” models of these vehicles are driven off the lot after arriving.
By comparison, the average time that a new vehicle spends on a dealership lot is about 60 days. The Tahoe RST and Suburban RST manage to sell out much faster than that.
So, what makes the RST trims of both vehicles so desirable? With exclusive features like a monochromatic Black grille with Black Ice accents and 22-inch bright machined high-gloss Black-painted aluminum wheels, these models give both the Suburban and Tahoe a sleek and streamlined look.
Others versions of the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe have also managed to sell very well. During the fourth quarter of last year, Chevrolet sold 28,698 units of the Tahoe, a sales increase of 36.1 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.
