For over seventy-five years the Chevrolet Suburban has gone through many changes from 1936 when it was a 2 Door panel truck to current day with a smoother body frame and 4 doors with all the upgrades of the 21st Century. The Chevy Suburban has come a long way from an inline six cylinder engine with 90 horsepower to the current day engine choices of a 5.3L V8 with 320 horsepower or 6.0L V8 with 325 horsepower both are coupled with a 6 speed automatic transmission. This makes hauling that boat to the lake for the weekend a piece of cake or even driving the family around town, a comfortable enjoyable ride. With an SUV that can work just as hard as any full size truck why would you look at anything else? With new changes to the 2012 Chevrolet Suburban isn’t it worth a look to see what it can offer you? Even if you purchase a new or used Suburban you will be making yourself a great investment in the long run.
The 2012 Chevy Suburban holds up to nine people, some full size vans don’t even hold that many or you can easily convert the cargo space to provide 137.4 cubic feet of room for whatever you need to haul. When it comes to fuel economy, space, and amenities, the 2012 Suburban has a leg up on the competition be it the Dodge Durango, Buick Enclave, Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia. The 2012 Suburban also offers over 8,100lbs. of towing power when properly equipped. Kelly Blue Book named the 2010 Suburban “Top 10 Family Car”. In 2011 the Chevy Suburban was “U.S. News and World Reports” top two pick as being an affordable large SUV. With the beginning of 2012 there is no doubt that the award winning Suburban will continue to top the “best of” charts. With a low MSRP of $41,335, the 2012 Chevy Suburban is a truck based SUV that offers supreme value to buyers.
In spite of the 2012 Chevy Suburban’s truck based platform and being a workhorse functional SUV it has a modern sophisticated interior that outshines the bland design of other utilitarian vehicles. The refined cabin is loaded with plush features giving the Suburban’s interior a contemporary look that sets it apart from its other large SUV competitors. With each of the different trims available each one has different features such as Bluetooth, full power accessories, satellite radio, rear seat audio controls, heated outside mirrors rear parking sensors, tri-zone manual climate and remote vehicle start just to name a few.
No matter the changes the Chevy Suburban has endured it has still managed to last through history as being one of the longest made SUV vehicles on the market. With the ability to haul anything from a boat the size of a small studio apartment to the kids Soccer team wouldn’t the 2012 Chevy Suburban be the ideal fit for you? If you can’t afford to purchase a new Suburban even a used model will be a good investment for your present and future.
