Our go anywhere do anything Suburban. The urban domesticated tank!!!

"I've owned this rig for several years and have loaded it down with 8 adults and tons of camping gear, thrown a 8,000 pound pontoon boat behind it and drove 3600 miles. What other truck can do that? None! Thanks GMC for 6 fun filled years!"

"I own a 1995 GMC Suburban with the 6.5 turbo diesel in it. It has approximately 270,000 miles now and has been a very reliable vehicle to me. I love the fuel mileage on this vehicle. I have averaged anywhere from 20 to 23 mpg every fill up since i've owned it. I have owned this vehicle for 2 years now. If GM ever was to make a new version of the suburban with the diesel engine, I definately would buy it and still drive this suburban as well."
