They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and it doesn’t get much bigger than the Chevy Suburban. For 2015, Chevrolet is rolling out its newest Texas Edition-branded truck meant to pay homage to the state that buys the most Suburbans of all.

The special Texas Edition package is available on LT and LTZ trim levels and comes with a host of upgrades. The upgrades are often popular options in the Lone State, so the Texas Edition helps group them all together. So-equipped Suburbans come with the Max Trailering Package, which includes a 3.42 axle ratio and trailer-brake controller. That’s in addition to the standard two-inch receiver hitch and built-in wiring harness.

Polished 20-inch, aluminum wheels come with the LT package while the LTZ gets massive 22-inch rolling stock. Of course, Texas-sized badging is included to show off the ‘burban’s special package. LT trim levels get an additional nine-month extension of SiriusXM radio subscription as well as navigation while the LTZ trim levels come with those without the Texas Edition package.

Things under the hood are left stock, as the 5.3-liter, EcoTec3 V-8 still pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Active fuel management, variable valve timing, and direct fuel injection help the Chevy small-block achieve 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway. A six-speed automatic transmission keeps the V-8 spinning in its powerband.

Checking the Texas Edition option box does cost a Texas-sized penny. For LT trims, the Texas Edition costs an additional $2,195 and on the top-trim level LTZ models, the price runs $1,095. Of course, that’s on top of the Suburban’s regular price tag.

The Suburban LTZ’s massive 22-inch wheels have a unique matte and chrome double finish, offsetting nicely the large amounts of chrome elsewhere on the SUV . Several Texas Edition badges populate the exterior as to designate the option package. Power-folding steps are a trick feature and a sure conversation starter.

The Tahoe and Suburban are woven into the Texas economy. With combined retail sales in the state up 37 percent for the first eight months of 2014, they’ve not only kept dealers busy, but the workers at the Arlington Assembly plant, where they’re built. The plant marked its 60th anniversary earlier this year and started building the Suburban and Tahoe in 2000. More than 4,500 Arlington employees have been working on three shifts, seven days a week to keep up with the full-size SUV demand.

Since opening in 1954, Arlington Assembly has more than tripled in size and produced nearly 10 million vehicles.
