2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS Rwd 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
We have a large family (7) already when we purchased this Suburban. Then, we became foster parents and we grew to 9! Ours has the optional bench seat in the front, which is a rarity we found out, but we all love it. For the large family, there's no other way to go. We can even go on weeks' vacation with most of the luggage in the back!
Seating capacity for 9, large cargo area, decent MPGs for a huge car.
