The 2019 Suburban RST Performance Package features a 420-hp, 6.2L V-8 engine, Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration, and a new Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed transmission.

If the standard equipment list offered as part of the RST performance package doesn't quite do the trick, additional performance accessories are also available.

Suburban RST will also feature a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

We've seen Chevrolet's sporty RST trim level before, most recently with spy photos of the Silverado wearing the trim, and before that, on the Tahoe.

Mr Flint said his primary aim was to "grow the businesses safely", adding: "We have increased investment to deliver that aim". Pre-tax profits from its Hong Kong operations hit a new record of $3.15bn, providing more than half the total for the group.


The Chevrolet Suburban RST Performance Package is an available upgrade for the Suburban RST.

The RST package made its debut on the Tahoe a year ago and apparently customers have asked Chevy to add the RST performance package to the Suburban as well.

Magnetic Ride Control is an active suspension that "reads" the road every millisecond, triggering damping changes in the electronically controlled shock absorbers in as few as 5 milliseconds. While the RST package was available on 2018 Suburban models, it wasn't much more than an appearance package that added wheels and gloss black exterior accents. "When you want to relax, it is very refined, with exceptional ride comfort and interior quietness". Chevrolet hasn't released performance specifications but it notes the RST boasts an 8,100-pound towing capacity when properly equipped. A custom-tuned Performance Dual-Side Exit exhaust system, for example, is the handiwork of Borla. The brake upgrade adds six-piston Brembo brake calipers up front, and the calipers are painted red.

The Performance Package is available as an upgrade to the Suburban RST, which was introduced a year ago. The package also adds a body-colored grille surround, body-colored door handles, plus black paint on the grille, the mirror caps, the roof rails, the trim around the windows, and the badges. Duralife™ rotors feature a hardened surface to reduce corrosion.
