  1. Roger T Says:

    Rented a suburban the other day it averaged 12mpg on city, terrible. Driving carefully in highway it turned 20, on other hand. Very spacious but does feel antiquated. Not surprised they turn a pretty penny in profit to GM, these are expensive beasts to buy.

  2. pedro fernandez Says:

    The government seems to be buying a lot of these Suburbans for law enforcement use and other depts as well.

  3. Kit Gerhart Says:

    A Suburban makes little sense, unless you tow. A “minivan” is a better people mover. Suburbans are a good “cash cow” for GM, though.

  4. veh Says:

    #3, totally agree with what you are saying. I can’t imagine wanting such a big vehicle unless I needed both towing AND 8-9 passenger capability.

    And is anyone ever going to figure out how to overcome the “I’d rather be dead than drive a minivan” stigma? Pacifica is trying, but I’d say with only middling success
