1997 Chevrolet Suburban K2500 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

After 20 months and 24,000 miles, my wife loves this truck for its overall capability and family friendliness. Gets 18mpg @ 75 mph cruising, and 15mpg in strictly around-town driving. The 6.5L turbodiesel is a remarkable powerplant for a full-size SUV, and the 4L-80E transmission is simply outstanding in every way. Surprisingly good handler for such a huge rig, although it will never fool a driver into thinking that it's a sports car!

Favorite Features

People / cargo capacity. Comfort in long-distance cruising. All-weather transport (with proper tires). Crash safety (hope we never need this).

Suggested Improvements

Better cargo net for area behind rear seat. Duramax diesel engine / Allison transmission.
