How much does it cost to fill the gas tank of a 2019 Chevrolet Suburban?

2019 Chevrolet SuburbanFor a large family, a king-size SUV like the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban might be the right vehicle for the job of taking that trip over the river and through the woods for some seasonal Thanksgiving eats. The Suburban seats up to nine in three rows and provides ample cargo space in the rear. Such king-size accommodations, though, don’t come cheaply, either in the purchase price or the cost of feeding this beast of burden. How much would it cost to fill one up for a trip to Grandma’s house this Thanksgiving?

Good news: It’d be a lot less than last week, per the national average for gas prices. The AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report said the average price of regular gas was $2.60 on Wednesday, down 8 cents from a week ago and 31 cents less than in early October, when pump prices began to drop.

So what does that look like coming out of your wallet? Here’s what it would cost to fill the Suburban’s 31-gallon tank based on prices posted early Wednesday by AAA:

  • At the national average for regular, filling the tank from empty would cost $80.60.
  • In California, where regular averaged $3.63, the bill would climb to $112.53. But if you think that’s a hike, try Hawaii: Regular averaged $3.82 a gallon there, making a Suburban fill-up more than $118.
  • In Texas, one of the biggest markets for the Suburban, regular was $2.30, and filling the tank would drop to $71.30.
  • Missouri, which led the nation as the cheapest average for regular fuel in the U.S. this week at $2.24 per gallon, would fill up your Suburban for just $69.44.

Gas prices have steadily declined for seven weeks in a row, lowering the cost of driving on the busy Thanksgiving weekend. Pump prices fell throughout the country the past week, and the biggest declines were in the Great Lakes and Great Plains areas. Regular fell 8 cents in Kansas, Missouri and Ohio, and 10 cents in Iowa. The average price of regular has dropped 29 cents over the past three weeks in Iowa.

The national average for premium gas was $3.19, down 6 cents from a week ago, and diesel fuel was $3.22, down 3 cents.

Even with the steady slide in pump prices, however, GasBuddy.com noted that they are still the highest since 2014 for Thanksgiving Day, a time when millions of Americans travel by car to visit family and friends. If you’re taking a Suburban along for the trip, you’ll have it comparatively easy for this year – but not as easy as the same time in years past.

2019 chevrolet suburban rst ron westphal chevroletThe 2019 Chevrolet Suburban RST with the Performance Package boasts a 6.2-liter V-8 with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Read more here.

After bringing the RST Performance Package to the Tahoe last spring, Chevrolet is now giving Suburban buyers the same option. Instead of the standard 5.3-liter V-8 that makes 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban RST with the Performance Package boasts a 6.2-liter V-8 with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The direct-injection engine features active fuel management and continuously variable valve timing.

These Suburbans also feature a 10-speed automatic transmission rather than the standard six-speed. Magnetic ride control, optional on the regular Suburban, features a performance calibration for improved body control on all Performance package models.

A performance dual side-exit exhaust system is available, designed by aftermarket exhaust company Borla. This feature improves exhaust flow by 28 percent, Chevrolet says. Buyers can also choose Brembo brakes with red six-piston, fixed aluminum calipers and larger 410 x 32mm Duralife rotors. The automaker says the performance brakes offer an 84-percent increase in brake pad area and a 42-percent increase in rotor area for improved system thermal capacity.

The Performance Package is based on the regular Suburban RST that came out last year. These models receive 22-inch wheels wrapped in Bridgestone P285/45R22 tires. Visual upgrades include black accents on the grille, mirror caps, roof rails, window trim, and Chevy bowties.

Chevrolet hasn’t announced how much the 6.2-liter Suburban will cost when it arrives this summer. But the same package on the Tahoe goes for $2,720. When we tested that model, it was able to hit 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds, ahead of a 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4WD Z71 we ran at 7.9 seconds.
