Chevy Linked Up With Luke Bryan To Design A Suburban Concept for Huntin’, Fishin’, Lovin’ Every Day
Chevy has been absolutely killing it with their custom truck built outs over the last few weeks. A couple weeks ago we told you about the “all-black everything” 2018 Colorado ZR2 Midnight and Dusk Editions. This follows on the heels of the 2018 Chevy Tahoe Custom, an SUV that promises to be the ultimate outdoor-enthusiast vehicle. Chevy removed the third row in the Tahoe Custom, giving plenty of room for fishing rods, tackle boxes, and camping gear. It also boasts 6,600 pounds of towing capacity to haul your boat, ATV, or camper. It’s the ultimate get out there SUV.
At SEMA, Chevy cranked it up a couple notches in collaboration with country star Luke Bryan. They created a Chevy Suburban concept that “speaks to Luke’s ‘Huntin, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day’ outlook.”
The Luke Bryan Suburban is basically built to go wherever the road ends. It has a lifted suspension and 22-inch Chevrolet Accessories wheels mounted on 35-inch-tall off-road tires. In the official release from Chevy:
“If you live in that hunting, fishing, loving every day mentality, you’re going to be a little more stress-free,” says Bryan. “And your quality of life will be a little better.”
Like other regular-production 2018 Suburban models, Bryan’s concept is powered by a direct-injected 5.3L V-8, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, that’s backed by a six-speed automatic transmission. The 5.3L engine is part of the classic Chevrolet Small Block family that’s delivered proven power and dependability for more than 60 years.
The Suburban also features a locking rear differential for sure-footed traction in the outdoors and an 8,000-pound trailering rating (4WD with NHT Max Trailering Package).
Imagine rollin’ into hunting camp in this beast? You’d be the envy of your buddies forever.
