2020 Chevy Tahoe: Redesign, Changes, Engines, Debut

While Chevy presented the redesigned Chevy Silverado early this year the brand is also simultaneously working on the new-generation Silverado HD models and the truck-based SUVs. So, it’s not strange that the half-ton Silverado made the first to the public as this model will borrow the design, running gear, tech, etc. to the upcoming vehicles. The larger Suburban was spotted earlier while testing but the fast-selling Tahoe will also enter the new generation as the 2020 model.

The 2020 Chevy Tahoe, based on the spy photos and some sources, will finally switch to the independent rear suspension while coming also with the redesigned chassis and lighter. The model will get the modernized styling and interior adding also the newest teach features. The powertrain range should provide better performance and efficiency, with the possibility of the diesel engine introduction.

2020 Chevy Tahoe

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Design

The new, three-row 2020 Chevy Tahoe will share the same platform with the redesigned 2019 Silverado 1500 and come much lighter. With the extensive use of the high-tensile steel in the new underpinning and aluminum alloy for the swing-body elements, the new Tahoe should also reduce the weight significantly. The new-generation Tahoe could weigh as much 400 pounds less than the version it replaces. However, at the same time, the model could gain additional inches for the extended interior capacity.

Visually, the new version should come with the more modern styling but the heavily camouflaged prototype doesn’t reveal much. The model will sport the dual-port grille combined with the new headlights. The body lines and edges seem also to be softened but we will have a clear picture of model’s new look when the introduction takes place likely early next year.

Interior, Equipment:

The interior of the new Tahoe should increase the level of luxury, comfort and convenience. There should also be the increased interior capacity thanks to the additional inches and new cabin configuration.

The model will also get the newest tech features Chevy has on offer. The new infotainment system with the smartphone support and new center display will appear alongside the modern safety systems. The large SUV will rely on the systems like the adaptive cruise control, lane control, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, etc.

2020 Chevy Tahoe

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Powertrains

As for the engine choices, we should expect the 2020 Chevy Tahoe with the duo of familiar V-8 engines.

A 5.3-liter V-8 engine should appear with the improved fuel saving system and the new 8-speed automatic transmission. The power and torque ratings should stay around 355 hp and 383 lb-ft.

A 6.3-liter V-8 should be a more potent V-8 option in the combination with the new 10-speed automatic transmission.  The power with this engine should move to around 420 hp and torque to 460 lb-ft.

However, the next-generation Tahoe could also gain the diesel engine option. Again, related with the light-duty Silverado a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 would produce around 282 hp and torque of 450 lb-ft.

The new Tahoe will also switch to the rear independent suspension and will also provide the off-road upgrades.

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Release, Price

The redesigned 2020 Chevy Tahoe will likely debut at the Auto Show early next year. The price will likely move the starting point around $50, 000 but it will be known after the debut.

2020 Lincoln Aviator: Design, Specs, Equipment, Release

The wave of the new SUVs splashed the 2018 Los Angeles Show. Lincoln used the show to present the all-new 2020 Lincoln Aviator. The new model is the brand’s replacement for the MKT model and takes the position between the larger Navigator and smaller Nautilus in the brand’s lineup. With this launch, Lincoln has the three-row, mid-size SUV to go against the market giants like the BMW X5, Audi Q7, Volvo XC-90 and Mercedes GLE.

The Aviator gets the propulsion from the twin-turbo V-6 engine and the new plug-in hybrid powertrain is also available making the model the most powerful Lincoln ever.

2020 Lincoln Aviator

2020 Lincoln Aviator: Design

The all-new, three-row 2020 Lincoln Aviator shares the same architecture with the upcoming, sixth-generation Explorer. This is actually the second generation of the nameplate while the model effectively replaces the MKT SUV. The rear-wheel architecture allows multiple configuration setups including the four-wheel drive.

From the visual perspective, the Aviator uses the styling cues from the larger Navigator SUV and Continental sedan. The look of the model isn’t also the surprise because we saw the Lincoln Prototype model at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show.

The large Continental-sedan-like grille and angular headlights define the front-end style in combination with the nice front bomber. The chiseled lines on the hood and sharp charter line mixed with the smooth surfaces form the elegant and attractive look. The sloping roofline and full-width LEDs on tailgate add also to the visual impression.

Interior, equipment:

The premium exterior look comes in hand with the high-class interior design and top-notch tech features. The new Aviator lifted the luxury to the new heights.

The luxury SUV promises the high comfort for the passengers in all three rows and the room for their cargo. The rich textures and details leave also the strong impression while the high-tech features make the ride easier and funnier.

Lincoln offers its new, stunning SUV in the base, Reserve and Black Label trims. There the model will include the leather upholstery, aluminum and wood textures. The model will also offer the 30-way power adjustable front seats and highly configurable middle row. The equipment list will also include the large head-up display, Revel audio systems, 28-speaker Ultima 3D surround system, wireless charging, etc. The handy Lincoln Way app will also provide stop and start functions via the cellphone.

The Aviator will also rely on the Co-Pilot 360 Plus package of the advanced safety systems. The model will come with the sophisticated adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, Stop and Go function bundled in the Traffic Jam Assist system. The safety aspect will also include Active Park Assist, Reverse Brake Assist and Evasive Braking Assist.

2020 Lincoln Aviator

2020 Lincoln Aviator: Performance

The premium style and feel will also be backed up with the high-performance powertrains. The 2020 Lincoln Aviator will employ the 3.0-liter bi-turbo V-6 in two configurations, 10-speed automatic transmission, sophisticated suspension and systems to provide the high-class and high-performance ride.

A 3.0-liter V-6 with the twin turbocharges will provide the “base” performance of 400 hp and 450 pound-feet of torque. The Grand Touring version will use the same engine in the combination with the battery-powered electric motor. The motor provides instant torque and the combined output with the V-6 engine of 450 hp and 600 lb-ft. The system includes also the 10-speed automatic transmission with the electric motor placed in transmissions housing while the battery takes the place under the floor below the passengers’ area.

The ride comfort will also be the strong side of this premium model and Lincoln uses the adaptive air suspension with the camera system monitoring the road ahead and adjusting the settings in the real time. The multiple driving modes will also tailor the ride to the conditions. The base model will switch between the Normal, Conserve, Excite, Slippery, and off-road Deep Conditions mode. The plug-in hybrid version will add the Pure EV and Preserve EV modes with one prioritizing the performance while another efficiency.

2020 Lincoln Aviator: Release, Price

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator will have the release date next summer. The price and other details, like the fuel economy will be revealed closer to the launch. The starting point should be near $50, 000.

2020 Toyota Highlander: Redesign, Changes, Arrival

Toyota’s reliable, mid-size, three-row Highlander crossover
SUV is faced now with many updated, redesigned or newly-introduced models. Ford
revealed recently the heavily-improved Explorer and the Highlander has also the
updated Honda Pilot and Buick Encore in the sight but also the newcomers such
as the Kia Telluride, Subaru Ascent and Hyundai Palisade. The all-new
Highlander arrived for 2014 and received the mid-update for the 2017 version.
Toyota has, however, been caught testing the new-generation 2020 Toyota
Highlander recently.

Details about the fifth-generation Highlander are still scarce but the three-row family hauler should grow in size and move on the new platform. The styling should also see the revisions in accordance to brand’s latest design language while model should also come with the heavily reworked interior and newest tech, comfort and safety features. The powertrain range should again include the gasoline and electrified versions.

2020 Toyota Highlander

2020 Toyota Highlander: Design, Platform

Toyota is prepping the new 2020 Toyota Highlander and like
many of its recent models, the version will be based on the stretched version
of the TNGA modular platform which forms also the base of the models like the
CH-R, Avalon, Camry, RAV4, etc. With the Toyota Global New architecture, the
Highlander should provide better performance and flexibility plus weigh less
while the prototype versions suggest also the enlarged dimensions.

Form the visual point of view, it seems that the test
version hides the styling similar to what we can see on recently all-new RAV4.
The styling cues we saw initially on the FT-AC concept model should be applied
to the new Highlander as well. That should mean hexagonal grille design
combined with swept-back headlights and dynamic front bumper style. 

The profile seems also to be coming with the trapezoidal
shaped fender flares and cleaner lines. The rear will also receive the new
taillights and resculpted tailgate and rear bumper.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, we should expect more passenger and cargo
space as the prototype version seem to have stretched wheelbase and length. The
current Highlander provides max cargo capacity of 84 cubes and just 14 cubic
feet with the all seats functional.

The new Highlander will also arrive with the new interior
design and upgraded materials and textures. The model should use similar dash
elements placement as the RAV4 with the center screen sitting atop the middle
of the dash and new air vents.

The new generation version will also adopt the latest Entune infotainment platform with Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The safety will also be updated to the latest Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite with the sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, etc.

2020 Toyota Highlander

2020 Toyota Highlander: Powertrain

No details have leaked yet about the powertrain Toyota will
use in the new generation 2020 Toyota Highlander.   

The range should include the four-cylinder and V-6 gasoline
units like in the current version and the electrified option as well. The
possible candidates should be the units from the mid-size Camry sedan. A
2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with power around 200 hp and the V-6 unit with
the potential around 300 hp. Both engines should come in the combination with
the 8-speed automatic transmission. 

The hybrid could combine updated 3.5-liter V-6 engine with
the battery-powered electric motor for a slightly improved total output.

2020 Toyota Highlander: Arrival, Price

The new 2020 Toyota Highlander should debut in the second
half of 2019. The price will likely see a modest increase across the range.

2020 Cadillac XT4: Changes, Equipment, Specs, Price

But being larger and more expensive than these models the elegant, turbocharged, efficient and well-equipped XT4 can also be an alternative to the BMW X, Audi Q5, Mercedes GLC, etc.

The XT4 is a smaller brand’s SUV than the XT5 and with the distinctive styling but Cadillac is also testing the new flagship, three-row model which should debut early next year and comes as the Cadillac XT6.

On the other hand, the 2020 Cadillac XT4 will come with the several new color options and more standard equipment. The model might also offer another trim option.

2020 Cadillac XT4

2020 Cadillac XT4: Design

With the new, sharp styling inspired by the Escala Concept, the XT4 is more effective than the larger XT5 and the new XT6 SUV should also have similar front and rear end design as the smallest Cadillac SUV.

The XT4 comes with the signature LED daytime running lights and also wears more defined lines and shapes than larger XT5. The mesh grille is also sleeker and sportier than on the brand’s next in hierarchy SUV. The sharp character and roof lines also contribute to the look while the rear has brand’s attractive, vertical taillights and a bit of the sports flair thanks to the rear spoiler and the sharply sculpted tailgate.

The 2020 Cadillac XT4 version will just bring new color options and possibly new trim level.

2020 Ford Explorer: Redesign, Engines, Arrival

Ford is in the process of readying the new-generation version of the popular, mid-size Explorer crossover. The heavily camouflaged prototype models have already been spotted on the roads and Ford also teased the audience with the police interceptor version with the hybrid bits.

We still missing precise details and full picture about the new version Explorer but many details have already found the way to the public. The new 2020 Ford Explorer will change the platform and offer several powertrain options including the hybrid version and the sporty ST variant.

2020 Ford Explorer

2020 Ford Explorer: Platform, Design

It’s not the secret that the next 2020 Ford Explorer will switch to the new platform as the part of the full redesign. The Explorer moved from the body-on-frame structure to the unibody design with the traverse engine setup in 2011. The next version will, however, make the new transition to the rear-wheel-drive-based, longitudinal-engine-layout, unibody platform which is shared with the Lincoln Aviator.

The new platform will come with the sleek body style but the shape will stay familiar as well as the profile silhouette. The model will have a strong character line on the side panels and adopt the new front-end design. The civilian version will have the same LED headlights as the Police Interceptor and the front fascia will introduce the new trapezoidal grille version. The front bumper area will have defined edges and style similar to the Land Rover family SUVs.

2020 BMW X5 M: News, Design, Engine, Price

The all-new BMW X5 is here for the 2019 model year and the model entered the new generation with the larger body and more interior room and comfort. The popular SUV packs also the advanced technology and top-notch convenience features but has also the high-performance gear.

However, the BMW X5 is still unfinished business as more versions are set to come. BMW will deliver the plug-in hybrid version with about 40 miles of electric range for the 2021 model year. But, for the higher adrenaline drive buyers will also get the M division-branded model. The high-performance model should arrive as the 2020 BMW X5 M and was already spotted several times while testing. BMW hides, however, the most important details. The engine is known but we don’t have official details about the performance. The same engine will also power the coupe-like X6 M version and more M-branded BMW s will appear in near future including the X3 and X4 high-riding models.

2020 BMW X5 M

2020 BMW X5 M: Powertrain

The recently redesigned X5 can already be had with the mighty twin-turbo V-8 engine which takes the place under the hood of the xDrive50i version. The 4.4-liter bi-turbo engine makes 456 hp and torque of 479 pound-feet which is enough to launch this model to 60 mph in 4,6 seconds.

The 2020 BMW X5 M will also pack the 4.4-liter bi-turbo V8 under the hood but the heavily revised version of this engine will add more ponies to the count. The M division X5 version should produce around 600 hp and torque around 533 pound-feet. The Competition version could add additional power hitting around 625 hp.

The model will use an 8-speed automatic transmission routing the power to the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system. The sophisticated system debuted in the new M5 and we will see how it performs in the X5. The X5 M will also get the special-tuned suspension and unique wheel and exhaust system combined with the powerful braking system.

2020 BMW X5 M

2020 BMW X5 M: Design

Like the 2019 BMW X5, the M division version will benefit from the use of the modular, lightweight CLAR platform and apply the same design language as the conventional X5 but with additional performance-oriented touches.

The 2020 BMW X5 M will get more attention thanks to the beefier front bumper with larger air openings from the front side and the rear will also get special treatment. The rear bumper and quad exhaust setup will add sportier appearance to the rear side and unique 21-inch alloy wheels and M division mirrors will also distinguish this version from the rest of the range.

2020 Audi Q3: News, RS Q3, Specs, Release

Audi’s subcompact Q3 crossover SUV gets attention with the
upmarket styling, extreme practicality and comfort, advanced technology and
punchy performance. A recently redesigned model goes against the big brands and
popular models including the BMW X1, Mercedes GLA, Jaguar E-Pace and Volvo
XC40.

The second-generation Q3 arrived on the new platform and
larger with the standard Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The engine range in
the US makes a 2.0L turbo available in two states of tune while in other markets
buyers can also have the TDI options and more TFSI versions.

The 2020 Audi Q3 won’t come with many new details but the big news is the new high-performance RS Q3 version. The new model will boost the style and performance of the model to the new levels and will be an alternative for the high-spec rivals.

2020 Audi Q3

2020 Audi Q3: Design

Audi redesigned the subcompact Q3 around the ubiquitous MQB
platform and made it larger as well. The new platform provides higher
powertrain flexibility, technology upgrades and performance while longer
wheelbase, length and wider track mean more space and comfort for the
passengers and cargo.

The styling of the model is modern and balanced with the new
signature elements. The octagonal grille borrows the inspiration from the
range-topping Q8 model and modern-design headlights get also the attention. A
defined charter line and subtly sculpted fenders also contribute to the look of
the model. The rear has also defined lines and shapers with the nicely fitted
bumper and attractive headlights.

The 2020 Audi Q3 will keep the things same regarding the
styling but the brand will add sportier and more aggressively styled RS Q3
version. The high-performance Q3 will boost the aerodynamics with the new
diffuser and much larger air intakes will also impact the styling and
performance. The wider track and lower ride height will also serve to better
performance and stability and form more aggressive appearance. The model will
also use unique wheels with the upgraded brakes peeking behind the spokes. The
rear spoiler and oval exhaust tips will also define the RS Q3.

Interior, equipment:

With the 3.0 inch longer wheelbase and 4.0 inches more in
overall lengths the new-generation Q3 provides more comfort and cargo room. The
cargo volume grew to 54 cubes with the rear seats stowed and to 16.7 cubes with
the functional rear row. The model provides also high-comfort and top-notch
tech features.

The subcompact crossover will offer leather and non-lather
upholstery, dual zone climate control, heated steering wheel, a sunroof and
many other luxury extras. The latest infotainment system with the smartphone
support and large 10.1-inch center screen will also be in the offer as well and
digitalized 10.3-inch instrument cluster.

The safety aspect will also employ the latest technologies including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking with the pedestrian and cyclist detection, surround vision and parking assist.

2020 Audi Q3

2020 Audi Q3: Performance

Audi limited the range of the engine options in the US to
the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine but it comes in two states of
tune. The base 2020 Audi Q3 will make 184 hp and torque of 236 lb-ft. An
upgrade of the engine will provide 228 hp and torque of 258 lb-ft.

The models will use an 8-speed automatic transmission and
Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Audi has no plans to offer a front-wheel drive
version as sad earlier.

The high-performance RS Q3 version will upgrade the
suspension and braking system while the engine should come from the RS 3. In
that application, a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-5 unit makes 400 hp and
torque of 354 pound-feet. With that, the RS Q3 should put the 60-mph run under
5 seconds.

2020 Audi Q3: Release, Price

The 2020 Audi Q3 will hit the market late in the year with
the RS Q3 launch in 2020. The price should again start around $36, 000. 

2021 BMW X3 eDrive: News, Expectations, Release

The handsome and responsive-to-drive, mid-size, BMW X3 entered the third generation in late 2017 but BMW also defined the next step for this model. The electrification is among the priorities for the brands and BMW is working on the electric-powered X3 version. The new version of the popular X3 was previewed by the iX3 concept at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show and the launch date is expected sometime in 2020. The electric X3 will likely arrive as the part 2021 model year and unlike some expected to be marketed as the 2021 BMW X3 eDrive the model will go to the production under the i sub-brand and use the iX3 nomenclature.

The prototype of the future electric iX3 is already performing the out-door testing and it looks almost identical to the newest version of the conventionally-powered X3. The models will also share the most of the in-car technologies and interior design. The model will be sold globally and the production will take the place in China.

2021 BMW X3 eDrive

2021 BMW X3 eDrive: Design

The 2021 BMW iX3 will use the new-generation eDrive platform that actually debuted on its Concept version but won’t go on sale as the 2021 BMW X3 eDrive as some expected. This platform will also be the base of many future vehicles from the brand and BMW is also working on the new-generation solid batteries for the electric models. However, these batteries won’t be here in time for this model but we should expect very good driving range despite that.

On the other hand, the styling of the model won’t be the large departure from the conventional version form. The prototype version spotted recently is almost identical to the current X3 and just a few details make the difference. The model has a conventional kidney grille but for the production version, we should expect enclosed variant like on the Concept vehicle.

BMW will also use slightly different bumpers and what will also define this model are the side charging port and the model will also lack the exhaust tips.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside, the iX3 will also use the same layout as the recently all-new, conventionally-powered X3 but BMW will add a few unique details.

The model will come with the high-end materials and in-car technologies. It will use the new-design instrument panel and the latest connectivity tech. BMW is also working on the self-driving technologies and in the time of coming this model will also integrate the achievements in that area.

2021 BMW X3 eDrive

2021 BMW X3 eDrive: Powertrain

As for the powertrain of the 2021 BMW X3 eDrive, it is too early to have precise details but the model won’t depart far from what BMW presented on the concept model.

The model will integrate the fifth-generation eDrive system but remains to see what performance it will be capable of. The newest eDrive version has separate components as will use the high-capacity batteries. BMW promise, its new-gen solid-state batteries would do more than 400 miles per charge but the iX3 should hit the roads before the arrival of these batteries.  The mileage would likely be in 200-range.

The Concept version had a 270-horsepower electric motor in the combination with the 70-kWh battery. BMW claimed the range of this setup to 250 miles and fast charging to 80 percent in about 30 minutes. The production version should be close to these numbers as well.

2021 BMW X3 eDrive: Arrival, Price

The 2021 BMW X3 eDrive should make the premiere in late 2020. The price estimation is between $50 and $60k.

2020 Kia Soul: Design, Specs, Options, Release

Kia used the 2018 Los Angeles Show to pull the wraps off the all-new Soul model. The redesigned compact hatchback starts the third generation as the 2020 Kia Soul. Kia still hides some specs like the mileage but revealed also some of the most important facts about the new Soul.

The new version ditches some trim options but will still offer the six levels of customization. The model again comes in EV version but remains with the front-wheel drive only. The better performance and handling will also arrive with the new-gen Soul but Kia improved also the passenger and cargo space.

2020 Kia Soul

2020 Kia Soul: Design

The new 2020 Kia Soul made the transition to the third generation on the new strengthened platform and with the redefined dimensions. The new Soul has 165.2 inches from bumper to bumper which is 2.5 inches more than on the previous generation. With the longer body goes also the 1.2-inch longer wheelbase which opens more interior comfort and cargo space.

From the visual perspective, the new Soul remains similarly shaped and instantly recognizable. However, the new styling elements and several tricks make it more appealing to the eye. The model sports the new, slim headlights and upper grille while also comes with the redesigned front bumper area. The front bumper has a bit of the sports flair while the EV version has fewer openings in that area and also comes on the unique five-spoke wheels.

The roof also adds to the appearance with the floating style and the rear has also the new, tall taillights design.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the new Soul boosts the cargo space for addition 5 cubes which now measures 23.8 cubic feet with the all seats up. The model keeps other interior dimensions largely unchanged.

2020 Kia Soul

2020 Kia Soul: Performance

On the performance front, the new 2020 Kia Soul promises better driving characteristics thanks to the new, more rigid platform and improved suspension system. The model now relies on the fully independent rear suspension.

The propulsion for the non-electric version will provide inline-4 and turbocharged four-cylinder engines. The base power unit is a 2.0-liter inline-4 with the power and torque ratings at 147 hp and 132 pound-feet. This engine Kia will offer either 6-speed manual transmission or CVT. The turbo version also returns with the new-gen Soul. A 1.6-liter turbo-4 unit boosts the performance to 201 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. The GT-Line version will combine this engine with the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. No all-wheel drive for the redesigned Soul as some reports claimed earlier.

The electric Soul version comes with the 64-kWh lithium-ion battery pack which provides also the power for the Hyundai Kona EV and Kia Niro EV. The battery feeds the electric motor mounted on the front axle. The system makes 201 hp and torque of 291 pound-feet.

Kia says that battery needs 75 minutes for the 80 percent recharge with the fast-charging unit. The range of 100 miles should take 30 minutes of recharging. Kia hasn’t, however, revealed the mileage of the new EV version. The same battery provides 239 miles in the Niro EV.

2020 Chevy Suburban: Platform, Design

GM is working on its full-size fleet and like the all-new Silverado 1500, the redesigned 2020 Chevy Suburban will be based on the version of the T1XX chassis. The design of the platform is the evolution of the K2XX underpinning and with the use of lightweight materials, the new model should lose hundreds of pounds in the process.

The newest Silverado 1500 is up to 450 pounds lighter than before and the next Suburban should move around 300 pounds from the shoulders.

With the version of the chassis, the new Suburban will also borrow the styling cues from the successful, half-ton truck. The prototype of the model despite heavily disguised seems to have the similar treatment of the headlights as the Silverado 1500. The same case will be with the design of the taillights but the grille and body lines should also follow the pattern.

Interior, equipment:

The full-size, three-row SUV will also come with the redesigned interior and increased comfort and luxury. The new suspension setup will boost the ride comfort and model will get new materials and tech features.

The next Suburban will also mimic the dash design and equipment offer of the new-gen, half-ton Silverado. The model will get the newest infotainment system with the center screen probably sized at 7 and 8 inches. The premium quality materials and luxury trim will be available with the heated and ventilated seats. The autonomous driving technology will also be the part of the equipment list.

2020 Chevy Suburban: Powertrains

Chevy hasn’t revealed the changes in the powertrain range and hides other detail about mechanics as well.

However, the 2020 Chevy Suburban will surely bring the new rear suspension setup changing from the solid rear to the independent rear suspension at least as an option if not as the standard solution. This move should improve the ride comfort significantly.

As for the engine lineup, the new model should again follow the path of the new Silverado 1500. The 5.3-liter V-8 should appear with the new fuel management measures and power around 355 hp. The 6.2-liter V-8 and new 10-speed automatic transmission should make around 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The new Suburban could also follow the redesigned Silverado 1500 with the 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit and 3.0-liter Duramax I6 engine.

2020 Chevy Suburban: Arrival, Price

The new 2020 Chevy Suburban will debut sometime in 2019 and go on sale late in the year. Expect a more premium price with the new generation version arrival.
