Suburban Restoration Parts
Reproduction Car Parts for Your Classic Suburban
The Suburban is a full-size SUV produced by Chevrolet, a division of GM. The Suburban name was first used in 1934 for the 1935 model year. This makes the Suburban the longest continuously used automobile model still in production today. The Chevy Suburban has been one of GM’s most profitable vehicles since its inception. The 1935 Carryall Suburban, the 1st generation, was one of the first production station wagons with an all metal body. The Suburban now comes with three engine options: the 5.3 liter V8, the 6.2 liter V8, or the 3.0 liter Inline-6 turbo diesel.
The Chevy Suburban was also produced under the GMC make until the GMC version was renamed as the Yukon XL. Here’s some trivia for you; the Suburban was also briefly sold as a Holden. For most of its history, the Suburban has been called a station wagon though most people call it an SUV, especially since it’s closed in version of the Chevrolet pickup truck, which has included the Chevrolet C/K and Silverado series of truck-based vehicles. Cadillac, not wanting to be left out, also has a version called the Escalade ESV.
The Chevy Suburban has a broad national market and is sold in the U.S., Canada, Central America, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Mexico, Peru, and the Middle East with the exception of Israel. While the Yukon XL is sold exclusively in North America including the U.S., Canada, and Mexico as of 2020 the Middle East territories, again except Israel.
A 2018 iSeeCars.com study identified the Chevrolet Suburban as the car that is driven the most each year and if you have ever tried to buy one used, you would believe it, as it’s not uncommon to find one with 300K plus miles. A 2019 iSeeCars.com study gave the Chevrolet Suburban the title of the second-ranked longest-lasting vehicle.
In December of 2019, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce unveiled a Hollywood Walk of Fame star for the Suburban. The Suburban has been in 1,750 films and TV shows since 1952 so we feel the honor is well deserved.
