2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I have the LTZ model. The build quality of this SUV is amazing, dead quite inside, no rattles or squeaks. Interior materials are outstanding, too. Steering is precise and direct and the brakes bite. The overall driving experience is that of an expensive German sedan. The engine sounds great when you floor the pedal and power is impressive at higher RPMs. Lower in the power band, though, torque is not overwhelming. A six speed transmission (apparently in the works) will certainly help. I don't know where they get those fantasy fuel economy numbers from! So far, suburban driving has yielded 11 and a trip to Maine with a loaded car 17.5 miles/gallon. Overall not bad for such a big SUV, though!
Looks, space, build quality, great interior, excellent fit and finish. Comfortable and effortless long distance cruiser. First rate sound and navigation system. This is a SUV that runs with the best of them in every respect and GM should be proud of it!
I would gladly trade some of those 310 horses for more torque at lower RPMs.
