In celebration of the Suburban's 75th year of service to the typical American family, Chevrolet is releasing the 75th Anniversary Diamond Edition Suburban. Chevrolet revealed plans for this model last February however, the pricing information has yet to be announced.
The anniversary model will be launched this summer and will feature a White Diamond Tricoat exterior color and Cashmere interior, as well as unique 20-inch chrome-clad wheels and new roof rack rails.
The model, which is based on the LTZ trim, will be fitted with integrated navigation radio, Bluetooth phone connectivity, rearview camera system, rear parking assist, remote starting and adjustable pedals. It was in 1935 that Chevrolet introduced the Suburban as an eight-seater that had a $675 price tag. Back then, it was an all-steel wagon body mounted on a commercial chassis named Carryall.
The Suburban is GM's longest running nameplate and what makes it more impressive is that it had been in production since then with absolutely no breaks. Chevrolet's persistence eventually paid off, especially when you consider that the model had only become truly successful starting in the 1990s.
According to Leslie Kendall, curator of Petersen Automotive Museum, Los Angeles, CA, the Chevrolet Suburban represents the traits that define a genuine American SUV, given its presence of more than 70 years in the automotive industry.
Being one of the vehicles that have been in the market the longest, the Chevrolet Suburban demonstrates not only the resourcefulness of the original production team but also the reliable judgment of General Motors (GM) Company that worked “on a great idea."
As Chevrolet General Manager Jim Campbell puts it, the Chevrolet Suburban "remains a fixture in the industry" for all kinds of clients as it continues to withstand the test of time by providing great driving experience with maximum passenger space. Moreover, its engine has consistently been delivering outstanding performance and capability, making generations of people a witness to its power.
