Chevrolet’s full-size SUV has a long and storied history. Starting with its production in 1935, the Chevrolet Suburban has long been a pick-up style vehicle with a station wagon backside. That type of description doesn’t do it any justice as it is more luxurious than your average truck and more spacious than your average station wagon. The Chevrolet Suburban fits up to nine people, plus all their baggage and is attractive to boot. Chevrolet’s wraparound fascia and steeply raked windshield provide a modern look and its vast interior space makes road trips as comfortable as can be.
The Suburban is powered by either a 5.3L V8 engine producing 310/320hp and 335/340 lb-ft of torque or a 6.0L V8 producing 352/366hp and 382/376 lb-ft of torque. These engine options are mated to a six-speed automatic. The 5.3L V8 also comes equipped with Active Fuel Management which switches off half of the cylinders for increased fuel efficiency.
It was back in 1935 when Chevrolet launched the first vehicle to carry the "Suburban" nameplate. In celebration of the full size utility vehicle’s diamond anniversary, General Motors has unveiled the special edition Suburban 75th Anniversary to mark the occasion at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. This special edition Suburban will go on sale early this summer and is limited to just 2,570 units, including 350 destined for our neighbors to the north in Canada as well as other export markets.
The celebratory ’burban is distinguished by a very fitting White Diamond Tricoat exterior finish and an upscale Cashmere interior complete with "Diamond Edition" embroidered headrests and matching etching on the kick plates. Other unique upgrades to celebrate the Suburban’s landmark birthday are a set of bespoke chrome clad 20 inch wheels with matching door pulls and roof rack; but it’s the 75th Anniversary gold and black Suburban Diamond Edition badges both inside and out that will give the celebratory Chevy away to unfamiliar eyes.
Redesigned for 2007, Chevrolet Suburban holds a unique place in the industry, proving to be an indispensable partner for those with varied and demanding lifestyles. Despite challenging market conditions, the redesigned Suburban has continued to draw new customers, with sales up more than 10 percent during the first quarter of 2007.
