2002 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
This is everything you would expect it to be. Gas mileage for this much weight and this much torque is the best in its class. We typically do 19 to 20 mpg on a road trip and have 4x4. Our son is 5 hours away at college and I would not drive anything else to see him outside of a luxury sedan. This is a traveling machine and will tow when needed.
Power, towing capability, hauling capability, visibility for a 5'2" woman driver, comfort equal to a cadillac, passenger comfort. No problems at 84K miles.
It would be interesting to have more 'hide away' seating in the cargo area. An 11 or 12 passenger vehicle is sometimes desirable and no van can match this road king.
