In 1935 GM introduced the first generation Chevrolet Suburban as a heavy-duty, steel-bodied wagon built on top of a half-ton truck chassis. Also known as the Suburban Carryall, the model came equipped with a two-door body style, a feature that would last until the late ‘60s, as well as an inline six-cylinder “Stovebolt” engine producing 60 horsepower.
The eighth generation Suburban debuted for the 1992 model year replacing the seventh generation which had lasted 18 years. It featured more modern styling and an independent front suspension for a somewhat more comfortable on-road ride. Added as an option in 1997 to the 3/4 ton version of the Suburban was Vortech 7400 L29 454 which produced 290 hp @ 4,000 rpm with 410 lb/ft of torque @ 3,200 rpm.
