Comments Off on The Long History of the Chevy Suburban
The Chevy Suburban is one of the most iconic SUVs in the American marketplace. Since 1935 they have been manufactured, and always popular. A lot has changed though, over the last 86+ years of their production, and today in 2021, the Chevy Suburban is still the most popular full-size SUV. Let’s take a quick trip through time and see how the Suburban has changed.
In 1935 the first Suburban was produced. Actually, before that, a transport vehicle was made for less than $700 (over $12k today) that was the predecessor to the suburban. It was meant to be a carry-all vehicle, with 3 rows and set up to 8 passengers. This was produced until 1940.
From 1941 until just after the end of WW2 Suburbans were produced for both civilian and military uses. Both were large 8 seater transport vehicles, with a smaller V6 engine.
