Chevy has unveiled the new 2019 Suburban RST performance package. The sportier Suburban is powered by a 420-hp, 6.2L V-8 engine, Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration and a new Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission.
The RST package made its debut on the Tahoe last year and apparently customers have asked Chevy to add the RST performance package to the Suburban as well. It’s available with a range of performance accessories including a custom tuned Performance Dual-Side Exit exhaust system by Borla with sleek exhaust tips that improve exhaust flow by 28 percent. A Brembo performance brake package is also available with front red six-piston, fixed aluminum calipers with 16.1 inch x 1.3 inch Duralife rotors.
The Suburban RST performance package also looks sportier than the standard Suburban, since all the chrome has been removed. In its place the package adds a body-color grille surround and door handles, gloss-black grille and mirror caps, and black roof rails, window trim, badging and Chevy bowties.
