Anyone own or have experience with 2019 Chevy Suburban Premier?

We are considering looking to replace our 2013 Cadillac Escalade ESV with a 2019 Suburban Premier. We absolutely love our Escalade. Its been/is a great car but is approaching 100K and we are thinking maybe its time. The motor in the Escalade (6.2L) is one of my favorite parts of the SUV. Now the Premier has the same motor. A new Escalade approaches the $100K price tag where as the the new Premier is $80K but with the current savings we can get it down to around $65K. Big difference in savings but has all the same bells and whistles. We are looking at used 2018 Caddies with mileage between 9K-18K......Just wondering if anyone on here has had experience with the new Suburban Premier either 2018 or '19. Maybe we'll just keep our Escalade and run it till we can't.... Thanks! PT

We have a 2018 Tahoe Premier as far as extras they are about the same. We have the 5.3L engine and it is more than fine for what we do but we don't tow the XT23 with it we use my 2500HD.

It has everything trying to think of what it doesn't have. Maybe the side view camera that is it but I am sure the 2019 has them bc we had a loaner traverse that had it. We love it we have had 2 tahoes, 3 suburbans and a traverse this 18 is the best so far.

I am sure that the Caddy has a few aesthetics features that the Sub doesn't have.

I bought a new-to-me 2017 Yukon XL SLT three months ago, which is nearly identical to the 'Burb Premier. I think it's great, can't think of anything major to change. I specifically did NOT want the Denali package, it adds a lot of expense but not much value. I'm perfectly happy with the 5.3 engine. The 6.2 has more power, but gets worse mileage and takes premium fuel. I did NOT want 22" wheels. Some say that the bigger wheels improve handling, but really, how sporty can handling be in a 6000 lb vehicle? Maybe the 22's have a nicer look, but no else in the world is going to notice when I'm going down the road. I bought this vehicle for trips, towing, and people hauling, and it's great for that. My mileage on trips so far has been 18-20 mpg. It drives very smoothly, I've been across Wyoming a couple of times dealing with hellacious headwinds and side winds and barely noticed.

Good luck!

Keep in mind that the new SUVs will be released later on this year as a complete refresh and biggest confirmed changed is the switch to independent rear suspension. If you're not needing one right away I would wait and see what the new one looks like first. Gives you the option to get the latest and greatest now or work a deal on the previous year models if you're not a fan of the new one.

The order cutoff for the current body large GM SUV's for the 2020 model year is September 30th. The "New 2021" will be early summer 2020 at the earliest.

Owned an 18 premier since Christmas....new to me. Traded in a 2007 with 190k miles.

Owned 1 Tahoe and 2 burbs previous to the premier. Tahoe #1 370k miles when I sold, burb #1 270k miles, burb 2 above

100k miles is nothing.....i would run it at least another 50k

Premier is nicest burb we have owned yet....build/fit and finish is great
