Chevy Suburban 2500

The only engine offered in the light-duty Suburban 1500 is a 295-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8. A 335-hp, 6.0-liter V-8 is standard though in the Suburban 2500, and a powerful 320-hp, 8.1-liter V-8 that produces 440 pounds-feet of torque is also an optional equipment item. All of the engines are teamed with a four-speed-automatic transmission. Further, the Suburban comes with rear-wheel drive or Autotrac four-wheel drive, which engages automatically to maintain traction. Very impressively, the Suburban 2500 models with two-wheel drive can tow as much as 12,000 pounds. This is a premium auto to tow the boat up to the lake with the whole family comfortably inside the spacious cabin. The Chevrolet Suburban is a large sport utility vehicle and it is one of the longest-lived automobile nameplates in the United States. The name dates all the way back to 1935 and hopefully will remain in effect for many years to come. The Suburban has spent most of its legacy as a passenger wagon bodied version of the Chevrolet pickup truck. Particularly modeling the Chevrolet C/K series of truck-based vehicles. Over the years is has proven itself to be one of General Motors most profitable vehicles. The word "Suburban" has been previously and loosely used to indicate a windowed, station wagon type body on a commercial frame which has been done by Dodge, Plymouth, Studebaker, Chevrolet, and GMC. The Suburban of the future is really not all that different as the 1990s and 2000s models are full-size SUVs with three rows of seating on a full pickup truck frame with a V8 engine. Logically, the trucks are popular with large ‘suburbanite’ families on account of their "go anywhere, haul anything" nature. As with everything, there is a downside and this model has been criticized for being excessively bulky and having poor fuel economy. Nevertheless and to this day, the Suburban is one of the few station wagons available with all bench rows. It really doesn’t look like this model is going anywhere for a long time.
