Do you want to know how much the Suburban can tow? The Suburban is a real body-on-frame SUV and one of the last ones remaining. As such, you can expect it to handle some serious trailer weight. The 2019 Chevy Suburban towing capability is impressive, and we will give you a rundown of all the towing configurations.

There are two engine options for the 2019 Suburban, and surprisingly, the smaller 5.3-liter engine can tow a little more.

When fitted with two-wheel drive, the Max Trailering Package and the 5.3-liter engine, the Suburban can tow up to 8,300 pounds.

The Max Trailering Package is available on every Suburban trim but what it adds is slightly different depending on the trim you are starting with. For all the trims though, the Max Trailering Package adds a 3.42 rear axle ratio along with an integrated trailer brake controller.

The LS and LT trims also get a rear air leveling suspension. This feature is not added to the Premier trim because it comes with a magnetic ride suspension. Four-wheel-drive models also get a 2-speed active transfer case with the Max Trailering Package.
