Chevrolet Suburban Review | Emmaus PA Chevrolet Dealer

One of the Oldest Nameplates in Automotive History, the Chevrolet Suburban


Used Chevrolet Suburban

We all know that Chevrolet is one of the oldest American automotive manufacturers in Allentown and Bethlehem, right behind Ford. However, what you may not know is that Chevrolet wasn't really the big player in the game back when it first started operations. In fact, it was a fledgling company that desperately needed to step up in order to compete with other manufacturers. Enter the Suburban, which can be credited as being the game changer that turned Chevrolet's luck. For more than 70 years, the Suburban has been serving as the average American's workhorse, winning the hearts of Allentown and Bethlehem residents.

Today, it is seen as the first choice for families looking for a large SUV that could fit all. With a tough to the nails exterior, powerful engines and a comfortable interior, the Suburban can fit up to an astounding ten people at once. If you want luxury and fancy bells and whistles, you would be better off looking elsewhere. But for a practical SUV that gives you the best bang for the buck, a used Chevrolet Suburban comes as a recommended choice from us at Kelly CDJR.


Beastly V8 engines are common among all newer models of a used Chevrolet Suburban with varying capacities. The smallest engine offered is a 5.3 liter V8 that can go around to making 320horses along with 335 pounds of torque per feet. Upgrading to the 6 liter V8, dubbed the 2500, you'll be overwhelmed with 352hp along with 382pounds of torque. Both come with a six speed automatic that's as comfortable as SUVs can get, with a towing capacity of more than 9500 pounds with either a 2WD or 4WD system.


Describing a used Chevrolet Suburban as large is an understatement; it's magnificently huge, reaching Godzilla-esque levels in terms of size. While this may look appealing, we do warn our prospective buyers that parking a Suburban in compact spots across Allentown or Bethlehem isn't an easy task. Thankfully, most of the used Chevrolet Suburban models that come for sale at Kelly Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM are equipped with a parking camera that makes the job much easier.

If you are interested in having a closer look at a used Suburban, we invite you to see some of the offerings we have at Kelly CDJR.
