This week, Chevrolet announced a brand new RST Performance Package for the 2019 Suburban. This package adds even more power to the Suburban with a 6.2 V8 engine offering 420 horsepower as well as a new Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. Let’s take a look at everything this new Performance Package has to offer.
“The RST Performance Package made its debut on the Tahoe RST last spring, and the response from our customers was overwhelmingly positive. In fact, Tahoe RST with the Performance Package is the fastest-turning Tahoe model, and we’ve received customer requests to offer the same performance and power to Suburban RST. Delivering on those requests with the Suburban RST Performance Package is another example of how Chevrolet has continually invested in the segment, developing models with combinations of capability, technology and performance to meet the needs of different customers.” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevy Trucks Marketing and Advertising.
This new package will be available as an upgrade starting this summer for the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban RST. The RST’s new V8 engine delivers three new technologies including direct injection, Active Fuel Management, and continuously variable valve timing to make it the Suburban’s most efficient engine to date.
A new 10-speed automatic transmission is also included in the package that will help maximize engine power under acceleration by providing smaller steps between each ratio. This new transmission has a wide 7.39 overall gear ratio spread and reduces engine revolutions at highway speeds.
“When you want to hustle, the Suburban RST with the Performance Package offers high levels of acceleration, braking and road-holding grip. When you want to relax, it is very refined, with exceptional ride comfort and interior quietness.” said Eric Stanczak, chief engineer for Chevrolet full-size trucks.
There are also a whole slew of available performance accessories available for the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban RST including a Performance Dual-Side Exit exhaust system and a Performance front brake upgrade package. The RST package includes 22-inch wheels with Bridgestone tires. It’s expected to have a beastly towing capacity of 8,100 pounds.
