The Suburban first came on the scene in 1935 and is still in production today. It has had a total of eleven different generations and seen many facelifts and upgrades over the years. The first generation had a station wagon body on the chassis of a small truck. It offered a lot of carrying space but still had the power of a truck.
The whole idea behind the first generation of the Suburban was literally to carry everything, the family, their stuff and anything else that they needed. You could seat up to eight occupants in some models and still get a decent amount of cargo in the trunk.
In 1941 the second generation was released but there was significantly less production during this time due to the War. But the Suburban now had a four-door model and it was popular with the military as it could carry a lot of people and cargo.
The third generation ran from 1947-1954 and it had an enlarged grille with a more horizontal design as well as upgraded horsepower options in the engine. Starting in 1953, the Hydra-Matic 4 speed automatic transmission engine was available. The third generation was also the end of the “Canopy express” series.
The fourth and fifth generations had minor upgrades throughout the years. The design slowly introduced flatter hoods, a flatter windshield, and larger door glass. In 1967 the sixth generation was released with a 3-door wagon with rear-wheel and four-wheel drive options. This generation became known as the ideal recreational vehicle.
The seventh generation had several changes including a four-door option, rounded body style, front and rear air-conditioning, a heater under the back seat and a baggage rack. This generation lasted from 1973 until 1991.
The Suburban continued to make improvements from generation to generation until 2015 when the eleventh and current generation was released. The design is much more modern and sleek but still focus on the ability to carry a lot of passengers and cargo which was the original purpose of the vehicle.
