What’s the best year for a used Chevrolet Suburban?

I want to buy a Chevy Suburban, but I’m not a big fan of buying a new one due to costs and depreciation. What’s the best year to buy a used Suburban?

Buying a used car is a great option to save money, but you have to do your due diligence where reliability is concerned! The best years for a used Chevrolet Suburban are 2010, 2014, and 2019.
Ultimately, the 2019 Chevy Suburban stands out with a 6.2L V8 engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission generating 420 horsepower. It also has the fewest complaints and received a 4-star NHTSA safety rating.
Although a vehicle’s longevity largely depends on factors like driving habits and maintenance, the Chevy Suburban receives an average reliability score of 3.0 out of 5.0 from RepairPal. While it may not be the most reliable vehicle on the market, it’s been around for over 90 years and continues to evolve.
However, these are some model years you’ll want to avoid: 2007 2009 2008 2004 2003 2005 2015 1999
