Chevrolet Suburban Review
Debuting in 1936, the Chevrolet Suburban is one of the longest-running models sold in the car world. Chevrolet now offers two different versions of Suburban, the 1500 and the 2500.
In the standard 1500 model, it is powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine and has GM's fuel-conserving cylinder deactivation system. The 1500 and 2500 come in both half-ton and 3/4 ton models, the half-ton has a 6 speed manual transmission and the 3/4 ton has a 6 speed automatic.
The 5.3-liter engine can make 310 horsepower and has the ability to gain up to 340 lb-ft of torque. There is another option to the 1500 model, which is considered an upgrade. The optional 6.0-liter V8 can get to 376 lb-ft of torque and has a horsepower of 366. There are more upgrades available for the 1500 model of the Chevrolet Suburban but they are considered to be by request and custom.
The 2500 model Suburban comes standard with a different variant than the 1500. This variant is tuned for more horsepower and more torque than the standard 1500 model. The standard 2500 can get to 382 lb-ft and 352 horsepower, which is plenty capable of towing a large load. Both models of the Suburban come in three different trim models for drivers to choose from.
The base trim model is known as the base LS and is the most basic and widely available package. All three are equipped with rear-wheel or all wheel drive. There is also an LT model that is well equipped along with Luxurious LTZ model, which is the classiest model of the three.
The differences between the models can be seen in the interior of the car and the amount of new and upgraded technology that is in the vehicle. he 1500 and 2500 come in both half-ton and 3/4 ton models, the half-ton has a 6 speed manual transmission and the 3/4 ton has a 6 speed automatic
The Chevrolet Suburban is one of the bigger SUVs on the market but despite it's size, it still has the ability to get to 60 MPH in under 9 seconds. It can seat anywhere from 6-9 people and with seats folded down can have over 100 cubic feet of storage space.
