Do you know what vehicle nameplate has been in production the longest? It is the tried and true Chevrolet Suburban. In 2019, the Suburban celebrated its 85th year of continuous production. It is the first vehicle to reach this monumental milestone.
The first Suburban model hit the market in 1935. That model was called the Suburban Carryall for its ability to carry so many passengers and their stuff. Today, the Suburban still has that carry-all ability with three spacious rows of seats and impressive cargo volume, when you need it.
“…The Chevrolet Suburban — the forerunner of the modern SUV — has stood the test of time,” said Leslie Kendall, curator at the Petersen Automotive Museum, “From family road-trips to dignitary protection, to TV and film and everywhere in-between, over the last 85 years the Suburban has become a fixture of Americana.”
Another nod to the continuing legacy of the Suburban is the fact that it recently earned its own Hollywood Star — the very first vehicle to be recognized with this honor. Since 1952, the Suburban has appeared in more than 1,750 films and television series, making the Suburban the most prolific actor in Hollywood.
When you choose the Suburban, you become part of one of the most beloved automotive legacies in the industry.
