    The 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is the ultimate weekend road-trip vehicle ready to haul nine people, their luggage, and even an 8,300 pound trailer.

    Try that in a crossover.nWith its traditional truck-based construction, the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban is the anti-crossover.

    It’s a throwback SUV capable of hauling nine passengers and their gear in comfort, all while towing a boat.nnIf a crossover like Chevy’s own Traverse simply won’t do, the Suburban stands ready.

    Thanks to its excellent hauling ability and its surprisingly luxurious feel inside, we’ve rated the 2018 Chevy Suburban at 6.8 out of 10 points.

    (Read more about how we rate cars.)nnThis year, an RST appearance package available on Suburban LT and Premier trim levels provides a spicier look with blacked-out trim and 22-inch alloy wheels, but no power or suspension changes.nnThe 2018 Suburban is available in LS, LT, and Premier trim levels, with seating for up to nine and a choice of rear- or four-wheel drive.

    Standard on all trims is a 5.3-liter V-8 rated at 355 horsepower that shuttles power to the wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission.

    If the 220-inch-long Suburban is too big for your garage, Chevy lops off 16 inches to create the more nimble Tahoe.

    And if the gold bowtie badge festooned to this SUV’s nose isn’t to your liking, the GMC Yukon XL is essentially the same vehicle with lightly revised styling.nnInside, the Suburban’s car-like dashboard groups most controls in and around an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that runs the automaker’s MyLink infotainment system.

    Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, as they should be at a price tag that tops $51,000 for the LS trim level before any options are added.

    Pile on the options and you’ll eventually wind up spending more than $80,000—at which point the related Cadillac Escalade starts to look like a rational purchase.nnCloth upholstery and a three-position front bench seat are standard on the Suburban LS; other trims sub in heated and ventilated leather upholstery plus a pair of captain’s chairs separated by a center console up front.

    Row two can be ordered either as a three-piece bench or as a pair of individual seats with a pass-through to the standard three-person third row bench.

    Both the second and third rows fold to reveal an apartment-like 121.7 cubic-feet of cargo space.nnIf that’s not enough room, consider petitioning Penske to offer a rental truck subscription program.nnThe 2018 Chevrolet Suburban looks best painted in Secret Service-grade black paint.nThe 2018 Chevrolet Suburban wears its size well, with a crisply tailored look outside and a dashboard that could have come from one of the automaker’s sedans.nnWe’ve awarded it a point above average for its attractive interior but stop short of assigning one for a boxy exterior, which brings it to a 6 out of 10.

    (Read more about how we rate cars.)nnThat’s not to say that the Chevy Suburban doesn’t have a commanding presence, particularly when swathed in Secret Service-ready black paint.

    Its profile is distinctly two-box, with only quirky headlights and a chrome-heavy grille distinguishing it from Suburbans of yore.

    Its crisp details and hard edges give it a timeless appeal.nnThis year’s new RST package adds special 22-inch alloy wheels and a few other styling bits that help it stand out from more pedestrian models.nnInside, the Suburban’s symmetrical dash layout puts most controls below a high-mounted 8.0-inch touchscreen.

    Climate and audio switches are grouped separately, which makes them easy enough to sort through at a glance.nnWith the standard cloth-upholstered bench seat on the Suburban LS, the dash ends abruptly and cuts into the middle passenger’s leg space.

    Still, we applaud the Suburban for hanging onto the front bench seat—even if very few Chevy dealers will stock one without the front captain’s chairs.

    Dressier LT and Premier trims look the same inside, although the optional mahogany leather seems worth the $295 upcharge to us.nnRead More: goo.gl/chUHxn
