The Chevrolet Suburban is a large sport utility vehicle from Chevrolet. It is
the longest continuous use automobile nameplate in production in the world,
starting from 1934 for the 1935 U.S. model year, and has traditionally been one
of General Motors' most profitable vehicles. The Suburban is also the world's
first SUV (body on frame)1 The Suburban has been produced under the Chevrolet,
Holden, and GMC marques until the GMC version was rebranded as the GMC Yukon XL.
For most of its recent history, the Suburban has been a station wagon-bodied
version of the Chevrolet pickup truck, including the Chevrolet C/K and Silverado
series of truck-based vehicles. Cadillac offers a version called the Escalade
The Suburban is sold in The United States (including the insular territories), Canada, Mexico, The Philippines, and the Middle East as a Left-hand drive vehicle, while The Yukon XL is sold only in North America and The Middle East territories.
Several automotive companies in the United States used the "suburban" designation to indicate a windowed, station wagon type body on a commercial frame including Dodge, Plymouth, Studebaker, Nash, Chevrolet, and GMC. Chevrolet began production of its all-steel "carryall-suburban" in 1935. GMC brought out its version in 1937. These vehicles were also known as the "Suburban Carryall" until GM cut the name to simply "Suburban."
GMC's equivalent to the Chevrolet model was originally named "Suburban" as well, until re-branding it to "Yukon XL" for the 2000 model year.
With the end of production of the Dodge Town Wagon in 1966 and the Plymouth Suburban station wagon in 1978, only General Motors continued to manufacture a vehicle branded as a "Suburban", and GM was awarded an exclusive trademark on the name in 1988. The Chevrolet Suburban is one of the largest SUVs on the market today. It has outlasted competitive vehicles such as the International Harvester Travelall, Jeep Wagoneer, and the Ford Excursion. The latest competitor is the extended Ford Expedition EL, which replaced the Excursion.
The Suburban of today is a full-size SUV with three rows of seating, a full pickup truck frame, and V8 engine. It is one of the few station wagons available with all bench rows. The Suburban is the same height and width as the Chevrolet Tahoe, although the Suburban is 20 inches (510 mm) longer. The extra length provides a full-sized cargo area behind the 9 passenger seating area. From 1973 to 2013 it had been available in half-ton and 3/4-ton versions, the latter discontinued after the 2013 model year.
In recent years, the Suburban has been used as a police car, fire chief's vehicle, or EMS fly-car. Suburbans are also used as limousine. The United States Secret Service uses black Suburbans, and operates fully armored versions for the President of the United States when he attends less formal engagements.
The 2007 model year Suburban and Yukon XL were unveiled at the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show in January. Production of the redesigned GMT900 Suburban and Yukon XL began at Janesville Assembly and Silao Assembly in March 2006, with the vehicles arriving at dealerships in April.
The new models were redesigned with more modern, less boxy styling,28 already seen on the previously released 2007 Tahoes and Yukons. The exterior features a more aerodynamic shape, made partly by a steeply raked windshield angle. The new design is more aerodynamic.
