Chevrolet Suburban next generation will receive a multi-link suspensionMay 28, 2018
The American concern General Motors is working on a new generation of fullsize Suburban. The novelty was lighted in the lenses of photo spies, which made some successful shots, where you can see something interesting.
Despite the fact that under the thick layer of camouflage can not see the body panels, in connection with which to draw any conclusions about the design of the crossover is meaningless, you can see that the car is tested with aprons that cover the rear suspension.
According to colleagues from the portal Autoevolution, with the change of generation the crossover will receive a new rear independent suspension, while the crossovers produced now are equipped with a classic beam, which does not have the best effect on the car’s handling at high speeds. However, the old Suburbans were generally satisfied with the spring suspension, but times are changing, and the new Ford Expedition with a change of generation received a multi-link independent rear suspension, and such a move from GM looks like a response.
The novelty will be based on the chassis T1YC, which is derived from the new platform GMT T1XX, which is designed for large crossovers and pickups of General Motors.
The current, eleventh generation of Subarban generation, is built on the basis of the GMT K2XX platform, a feature of which is a traditional beam, to which shock absorbers and springs are attached.
Considering that the new Chevrolet Silverado pickup got a compact (by class standards) four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a capacity of 2.7 liters, the feature of which is an amazingly long stroke of pistons (102 millimeters). This engine develops 314 horsepower and 473 Nm of torque, so it may well appear on the base versions of the full-size crossover, naturally, with a change of generation.
Last year, US dealers sold just over 56,500 copies of this model. The competitor in the face of Ford Expedition sold in the amount of just under 52,000 copies, so while nothing says that Ford innovation in this aspect caused damage to the culprit of this news.
