We don’t know how much your Suburban weighs because we don’t know what model year it is or whether it has four-wheel drive or other features that add weight. We can tell you that the base curb weight of a 2012 Suburban with two-wheel drive is 5,672 pounds, and with four-wheel drive it is 5,824 pounds. Curb weight includes all vital fluids but no passengers or cargo.


Some manufacturers list curb weights in their owner’s manuals, but that is not the case for the 2012 Suburban. However, if you have a late-model Suburban, the numbers listed above should be close to your vehicle’s weight because there haven’t been major changes in recent years. Besides four-wheel drive, other options that can add weight are features include larger wheels and tires and a sunroof.
