Originally introduced for the 1935 model year, the Chevrolet Suburban is the longest-running nameplate in U.S. vehicle production. The latest Suburban 1500—now in its eleventh generation—was introduced for the 2007 model year and is available in three trim levels. Chevrolet's largest full-size SUV is offered with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. All Suburban models offer three rows of seating.
A twelfth-generation Suburban is currently in the works at GM and set to debut for the 2014 model year. Chevrolet has hinted the next Suburban will be considerably lighter than the current model and equipped with a smaller, more efficient engine.
