Chevrolet Suburban

The Chevrolet Suburban is an iconic large sport utility vehicle from General Motors. It has one of the longest-running nameplates in the United States, starting from as far back as 1935. During that time, many automotive companies utilized the "Suburban" label to designate a station wagon style body on a commercial frame. After the 1966 Dodge Town Wagon ceased production, only GM continued to market the Suburban, and it was later granted an exclusive trademark for the brand in 1988. This class of SUV is the largest available, featuring three rows of seating and a sizable cargo area behind them. The very first all steel "carryall-suburban" originated from Chevrolet in 1935. GMC shortly followed suit a year later and began producing its model. In 1980, the term was rebranded and was then used to market this type of car. For the next few decades, GM released Suburbans for both its Chevrolet and GMC lineup. However, in 2000, GMC's Suburban equivalent was altered and resumes as the Yukon XL. Consequently, the Suburban would only be available under the Chevrolet brand. In 1999, Cadillac developed its version of the vehicle, called the Escalade ESV. While it can host a maximum of eight passengers, the Chevrolet and GMC editions can accommodate up to nine. Shorter versions of these are sold as the Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade. Additionally, there are also pickup bed versions offered as the Chevrolet Avalanche and Cadillac Escalade EXT. The 1990s and 2000s brought us the current Suburban with its V8 engine, full-size frame, and three rows of seating. These have become popular for suburban families with active lifestyles, yet they have been criticized due their bulkiness and lack of efficiency with fuel. On the positive side, the Suburban has been very successful when modified for use as a police car, fire chief's vehicle, EMS fly-car, or even a limousine. GM now offers two types of Suburbans: the 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton. Going with the 1/2 ton, customers can pick from five different models: base, LS, LT, Z71, and LTZ. All four firsts come with a Vortec 5300 V8 with 295 HP, while the LTZ has the Vortec 6000 V8 at 335 HP. With the 3/4 ton, there are only two options: the LS, or the LT equipped with a standard Vortec 6000 V8 or an optional Vortec 8100 V8. All of the Chevrolet Suburbans come in either 2WD or 4WD, except for the LTZ which is AWD. In 2006, the GMT900 Suburban was released. It featured a more modern design akin to the Tahoe and Yukon, as well as improved interiors and larger DVD/Navigation screens. The length of the Suburban was increased by 2 inches, and leather seating became a standard for the LT2, LT3, and LTZ models.
