2017 Chevrolet Suburban
Current Base Price: $49,915
An all-new version of the Suburban was introduced for the 2015 model year —80 years after that first Suburban Carryall went on sale. One of the largest SUVs on the market, the 12th-gen Suburban can carry up to nine passengers with plenty of room for cargo. The current Suburban offers a bit more power than those 60 ponies in 1935 — the modern-day version has a 5.3-liter V8 rated at 355 horsepower. For 2017, the Premier replaces LTZ as the top trim level, featuring perforated, leather-trimmed heated and cooled driver and front passenger seats, and available 22-inch wheels. Front active aero shutters improve aerodynamics on the highway, and available options include a hands-free power liftgate, a rear-seat entertainment system and low-speed forward automatic braking.
