2020 BMW M5 vs. 2021 Chevy Suburban


2020 BMW M5 unleashes 600 plus horsepower from its twin turbo V8, making it a beast with an irresistible charm. It maintains BMW’s luxury pedigree with a scintillating cabin complete with cutting edge technology and upscale materials. It stands out from its M5 predecessors with an engine that accelerates with unbridled ferocity, capable of hitting the 60mph mark in just 2.8 seconds. Think of the 2020 BMW model as a big luxury sedan with a maniacal touch that has lately been missing in the M family.

Then there is the 2021 Chevy Suburban, an alleged competitor to the aforementioned 2020 BMW M5. It offers great tow capacity as well as a muscular yet optional V-8 engine to make it a somewhat comfortable beast of burden. Its design alone means you’ll find it hard to fit it into your garage. You can also tell from the design that it is not made for tight parking lots. The design doesn’t inspire much. The same can be said of its speed, agility and interior.

Design & Style

BMW 2020 M5 comes complete with an elegant leather interior with supportive and supple sport seats as the icing on the cake. You’ll also quickly notice how the driver’s seating position is optimized for performance style driving.  There’s also a slew of amazing features that include a heated steering wheel, customizable ambient interior lighting, a power adjustable steering column and heated front seats.  Further options worth mentioning include front seats with massage functions, a four-zone automatic climate control system and heated rear seats. Space is not an issue with the M5’s trunk comfortably fitting up to six carry-on suitcases.

2021 Suburban Chevy will have you drool over its exterior design. Get in though and the first thing you notice is its high floor which easily disrupts comfort. There’s no doubt though that its high seating height provides a commanding perch. Its main highlight is perhaps its vast dashboard with well-placed controls. Desirable upgrades like heated steering wheel, head up display and ventilated front seats are limited to top of the line model.

Technology & Safety

Each 2020 BMW M5 model comes along with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, wireless device charging and real time traffic info. It does not end there though. 2020 M5 also runs BMW’s latest iDrive Software via a large infotainment display on top of the dashboard to the driver’s right. Safety features include standard forward collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane keeping assist, automated emergency braking and adaptive cruise control complete with stop and go technology.

Again, 2021 Chevy Suburban tries to play catch up with its tech and safety features which do not include much. The most notable features in that regard include an 8.0-inch touchscreen, wireless charging, USB ports and 4G LTE mobile hotspot. Safetywise, the 2021 Chevy Suburban boasts of automated emergency braking and collision warning.


BMW models, particularly the ones from the M5 series are known to perform when it matters. 2020 M5 is not an exception. It sports a one of a mind twin turbo 4.4 V8 engine capable of churning up to 600 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. It is also super-fast, launching to 60mph in just 2.8 seconds. Its high-tech drivetrain can send 100% power to rear wheels for an out of this world read drive experience. Speed and engine specs aside, you won’t fail to notice 2020 M5’s heroic cornering grip and its whisper quiet comfort mode even when accelerating.

Chevy stands out once again as far as performance is concerned. There isn’t much it has to offer though. A standard 355 hp 5.3 V8 engine and an optional 420 hp 6.2 liter engine can easily be described as the 2021 Chevy Suburban main highlights. The smaller engine pairs with a fickle six speed automatic transmission while the bigger one uses a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Bottom Line

2020 BMW M5 bags the medal for pretty obvious reasons. Its agility is second to none. It guarantees safety, it is fast, and it is also comfortable. Even with all these perks, it is still fuel efficient just as it is pleasant to drive.
