2008 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Without a doubt, the best bang for the buck in todays market. I purchased a 4WD LTZ with all the options. This car looks good, is wel built and perform extremely well for the size. Build quality is fine and there are no issues I can find so far. For ski trip of hauling kids and stuff, there is very little competition.
Exterior look, engine power band, ecosystem of after-market parts and improvements. NAV and DVD system work fine. Low parts cost.
There is no excuse for no Bluetooth system in a 2008 vehicle with all options. The 6.2L engine and 6 speed gearbox from the Denali/Escalade would improve this car quite a bit.
