In the full-sized-SUV arena, the 2024 Chevrolet Suburban stands alone, leading the way where most customers care the most. With robust performance, cavernous interior space, state-of-the-art technology, and remarkable capability, the Suburban offers its customers a second-to-none ownership experience that places it miles ahead of the competition. Let’s see how two other “comparable” full-sized SUVs, The Jeep Grand Wagoneer, and the Ford Expedition Max stack up to the original.

Power and Performance No Other SUV Can Match

Under the hood, the Suburban flexes its muscles with a 6.2-liter V8 producing a great 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. Paired with a smooth shifting 10-speed automatic transmission, which propels this Suburban around with an air of confidence, handling heavy towing or hauling tasks with complete control.

In comparison, the best the Ford Expedition Max can offer is a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that musters only 440 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. While certainly able, that’s much less power than what the Suburban packs. Meanwhile, the Jeep Wagoneer relies on a 5.7-liter V8 that manages only 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque, which places it far behind the Suburban’s extreme firepower.

Luxury Level Interior Space and Versatility

No other full-sized SUV rivals the Suburban regarding interior space and versatility. Cargo volume is a class-leading 144.7 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded. It can swallow an astonishing amount of gear—making it your ultimate road-trip companion or moving-day hero.

Fun Fact – With 2nd and 3rd row seating lying flat, the Suburban has more interior space than an entire Mini Cooper from front to back!

With all three rows of seating up, there’s still an impressive 41.5 cubic feet of cargo space in the Suburban—more than the Expedition Max’s 36 cubic feet and the Wagoneer’s 27.4 cubic feet. Passenger accommodations echo this, with what feels like acres of legroom and headroom across all three rows. Combine that with ample row adjustment and you get a comfortable ride for as many as nine occupants.

While no slouch in terms of space itself, the Expedition Max can’t quite match the cavernous interior of the Suburban, with a bit less cargo room and more diminutive third-row seating. With luxury as a top consideration in its design, the Wagoneer surrenders a little volume to that slick sheetmetal, making for a far more confining cabin than that found in full-size SUV rivals.

Cutting-Edge Technology and Infotainment

The Suburban excels in terms of space and power and features premium technology and an infotainment experience. Sitting front-and-center on the center console of the Suburban lies a giant 10.2-inch touchscreen display. Another area in which Chevrolet blows its competition away is in its user-friendly infotainment system. Chevy’s top-notch infotainment system is well-integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to provide fast, easy, and, smooth connectivity with your smartphone so you can access thousands of apps and services.

What about advanced driver-assistance features? The Suburban comes armed to the teeth to keep its occupants safe. Inside the Suburban you’ll find many of today’s top safety features, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and the all-important safety aspect of Rear Cross-Traffic Alert for enhanced safety and reduced driving stress.

While the Expedition Max and Wagoneer have their respective infotainment and safety technologies for the buyers, they struggle to truly match this one in inclusiveness and user-friendliness on the Suburban. It’s quite capable, but the SYNC 4 system has nothing on the intuitive simplicity that Chevrolet’s does. The Wagoneer’s Uconnect system is strong in its own right but lags behind in overall screen size and responsiveness.

Incomparable Capability and Durability

One of the biggest suits to its name, this vehicle spells exceptional capability and bearability. The Chevrolet Suburban can haul a max load of 8,300 pounds when properly equipped, making it much more capable than most for towing heavy trailers, boats, or recreational vehicles—any serious hauler’s must-have.

While no slouch in this department, the Expedition Max tops out at a more respectable but lower 9,300-pound towing capacity than the Wagoneer’s maximum 10,000 pounds for towing.

The Suburban’s prowess is not limited to towing performance. It’s advanced chassis has been refined over the decades. It features a robust body-on-frame construction. But thanks to a suspension setup that has been perfected over 100 years now, you and your passengers get a refined, composed ride, whether full-bore from a standstill, fully loaded, or on rough roads. This rock-solid durability and reliability weave into a tapestry of excellence that the Suburban has woven over decades.

Verdict: The unconquerable Suburban

Nothing beats the 2024 Chevrolet Suburban regarding power, interior space, tech, competency, and durability. It packs a V8 powerplant, spacious interior accommodations, user-friendly infotainment and safety features, and incredible capability to make it the ultimate choice for families, adventurers, and any other consumer demanding the very best full-size SUV.

While these include respectable contenders in their own right, neither the Ford Expedition Max nor the Jeep Wagoneer seems to feast on the well-rounded greatness this Suburban serves up. Whether taking an epic cross-country road trip, hauling a seriously heavy trailer, or just looking for a full-size SUV that delivers a spacious yet comfortable daily driver, the Suburban whips up an ownership experience few rivals can aspire to, much less match.

In a combination of its commanding presence, unshakable reliability, and storied heritage, the contention against the 2024 Chevrolet Suburban for the title of king within the full-size SUV category does not exist—amassing an extremely compelling mix of power, space, and capability to place the competition squarely in the rearview.
