Suburban Z71 Package Specs

Save

A redesigned Chevrolet Suburban debuted in 2014 as a 2015 model. The Z-71 package adds additional or upgraded equipment to make the vehicle more viable for off-road use or travel. The Z-71 package mainly focuses on the suspension and chassis, but there are other unique features included as well.

Z71 = Chevrolet Off-Road

  • The Z71 package has always been Chevrolet's designation for off-road suspension packages on pickups and SUVs. On the 2015 Suburban, this means off-road enhancements designed to improve the SUV's off-road performance and appearance. The new Z71 package is offered on four-wheel drive Suburban LT models.

Special Features

  • From a functional standpoint, the Suburban Z71 features a coil-over-shock independent front suspension and a five-link coil spring rear end. The rear track is widened, with standard 18-inch wheels and available Magnetic Ride Control. Borrowed from Cadillac, Magnetic Ride Control is an active damping system that uses magneto-rheological fluid in the dampers to control body motions. Larger off-road tires, functional tow hooks, and a front skid plate are a part of the Z71 package.

Exterior Features

  • Additional appearance features include a unique grille, running boards and fog lights. A front parking assist is added to the Suburban's parking sensor array as well.

Powertrain and Functionality

  • The Z71 package does not affect the engine or drivetrain of the Suburban; it is powered by a 5.3 liter V-8 engine connected to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Suburban's V-8 is equipped with direct fuel injection and General Motors Corp.'s Active Fuel Management system. The Suburban produces 355 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 383 foot-pounds of torque at 4,100 rpm. The Suburban Z71 does offer availability of the options available on the Suburban LT or LTZ, including a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot, a hands-free tailgate and wireless phone charging.
