Introduced in 1935, Chevrolet Suburban is the original SUV and the oldest continuous nameplate in automotive history. Seventy-eight years later, it continues with the same blend of spaciousness and capability that has distinguished it for generations.
For 2013, Suburban is offered in LS, LT and LTZ models – in 2WD and 4WD – as well as half-ton and heavy-duty ¾-ton series. (LTZ is available only on half-ton.) A Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed is standard on half-ton models, optimizing fuel economy on the highway via reduced engine speed. Also, the lower-rpm engine speed on the highway enhances interior quietness.
Three rows of seating are standardon all models. The second row is available as a three-passenger bench with a 60/40 split or two bucket seats. The third row features a 50/50-split design and is removable. A power-assisted second row seat release feature is standard on LTZ.
