The Complete Guide to the Suburban Car

The Complete Guide to the Suburban Car

GM’s answer to the ultimate in comfort and spaciousness for the American family, the Suburban car offers those in the market for a new vehicle a large variety in options in order to meet every need and preference.

The Suburban car’s body is based on the body styling of General Motor’s largest pickup trucks which ensures that they are equipped with the ability to haul more than just passengers. They can haul groceries, certainly, but they are also fully capable of hauling materials for DIY projects including heavy paver bricks or lumber.

Gas Mileage

With the ever-fluctuating cost of gasoline, the gas mileage on the Suburban car might prove to be somewhat of a concern for those who are researching the best vehicle for their needs.

The reality is that the Suburban is not going to get the good gas mileage that you might expect from a mid-sized family sedan; it is a large and heavy vehicle that is equipped to tow boats, horse trailers, and camper trailers. If you are in the market for a vehicle that will allow you the ability to tow then you are not going to find one that offers you great gas mileage so it is something that you need to think carefully about prior to purchasing your towing vehicle.

With an average of 14 miles per gallon for city driving and an average of 19 miles per gallon for highway driving, the Suburban car’s gas mileage is comparable with other large trucks or SUV’s.

The Power To Tow

If the ability to tow a boat is something that you are looking for then the Suburban car is going to be able to meet your towing needs. With the muscle that is needed for towing, there are also various powertrain and towing packages that can help you to customize your ability to tow varying sizes.

If you are purchasing a new vehicle then ask your sales person for available options that can help to meet your needs. If, however, you already have a Suburban car you should ask your mechanic if your current options on it will allow you to tow what you are looking to tow. Remember that trailers that require a gooseneck hitch cannot be towed by anything but a large pickup truck that has the appropriate gooseneck towing package installed.

Pros And Cons Of The Suburban Car

Just like every vehicle, there are several pros and cons to consider before buying a Suburban car. Before you sign on the dotted line and drive away in your new Suburban, you should carefully consider all aspects of owning your new vehicle.

  • Pros Of The Suburban Car - There is no doubt about it, the Suburban car is built on a chassis that is sturdy and will be able to withstand a fair amount of driving on dirt or gravel roads.-If you have a large family, there is ample interior space to comfortably fit all members of your family – and the family dog.
