    Default Picked up new Chevy Suburban Friday. In love.

    As most of you know, I work for GM. I've been wanting to get the wife a 4wd for some time now. We looked at a Tahoe and I swear her current Buick SUV has more cargo space behind the 3rd row seat. We decided then that we would go with either a Surburban or Yukon XL. My main concern (other than 4x4) was it having the HD tow package which gets you 3:42 gears, oil and tranny cooler, and heavier rated coils. For the wife, heated leather seating, navigation, and backup camera topped the list also. She saw this one listed on my employee PEP program (it's a GM owned vehicle that is issued to an upper management employee for approx 6 months then goes up for sale). Bottom line is we got a Surburban with all the options we wanted and then some for a great price. It rides very smooth and has tons of room. Can't wait to see how well it pulls. OK. Enough typing... Here's the pics.

    Beautiful and congratulations!

    I LOVE the looks and style of these Burb's. I've been thinking of finding a 3/4 ton version to replace my 1/2 ton truck as I rarely use the bed (prefer trailers) and always have at least 4-5 people in it.

    I'm looking forward to your reviews on towing performance, my personal vehicle is solely used for towing.

    I wish GM would offer the 6.2L on the 3/4 ton Burbs instead of the 6.0L. It pulls well but is a gas hog. I'm the same way with a truck. I will take a knee to waist high trailer bed over a truck bed any day of the week.LOL!

    Exactly, although I'll have to bring a tote for the random gas can trip. No need for a trailer for that.

    I love those suburbans, I had a 84 3/4 ton, 94 1/2 ton, then a 2002. Had both in the garage for a while 94 & 02 , the gas bill was a killer
