2011 Chevy Suburban 1500 LTZ SUV

2011 Chevrolet Suburban Review

(3 Stars)  The big oil shock survivor

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Chevrolet has been known for its high performing, rugged line of trucks for many years. The Suburban has been around for quite some time and it has been though many changes along the way. The Suburban was actually introduced around 1935 and has been going strong since. The original pickup had more of a station wagon style body. The Suburban is one of the largest vehicles on the road and it is a fully capable truck that can be used to move up to 8 passengers at once or to tow a huge payload. This truck is also one of the most expensive truck models from Chevy, but there is no question that you get what you pay for when you buy one of these beasts.

The standard Chevrolet Suburban start out at $40,925 and that is before you even look at any extra options packages. The standard engine and transmission can town up to 8,100 pounds and if you need a stronger towing package, then you can upgrade to the LTZ model that brings a bigger V-8, a 6 speed automatic transmission and some other off-road necessities to the table. This is the vehicle that pretty much defined what an SUV was and should be.
