WASHINGTON — The redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 SUV earned a four-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2015 Suburban received four stars in the front crash test, five stars in the side crash test and three stars in the rollover crash test.

The rating applies to rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive versions of the Suburban.

Five stars is the highest rating. The 2015 Suburban is on sale now.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not rated the 2015 Suburban.

Standard safety equipment includes six airbags, electronic stability control and a rearview camera. The 2015 Suburban features the segment's only front center airbag, an optional feature on bucket-seat models. It deploys from the inboard side of the driver's seat and inflates between the driver and front passenger for more protection in side-impact crashes.

The Suburban also features the Safety Alert Seat. It is standard on LT and LTZ models and part of an optional Driver Alert package on the Suburban LS. The special seat pulses the left, right and both seat-cushion bolsters to alert the driver to danger.

Key competitors to the Suburban include the Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada and Toyota Land Cruiser.

Edmunds says: NHTSA is just beginning to post 2015 crash-test ratings. Ratings have not been posted on the aforementioned Suburban competitors.
