Bought this 2007 Chevy Suburban after doing lengthy research and going to see a few on various local lots. I had formerly owned a 1992 GMC version,now labeled the Yukon XL and initially was only interested in a more recent model of those. However, many on the market now are the Denali version, which much like its cousin the Escalade ESV, does not offer all the 4 wheel drive options e.g. low range, which is essential for off-roading conditions like sand. The models that did were few and far between.
When I turned my search to Suburbans, they almost all were equipped this way, with comparable or even somewhat lower prices and much better availability.
I purchased an LT version with the standard leather seats, 3rd row seating, and all the normal comfort features. Since this is a 2007 model, it does not have all the new techno bells and whistles like blue tooth, back up camera, or built in GPS. It is, however, a very comfortable ride, glides down the road at highway speeds with its V-8, long wheelbase and big tires, and handles much better than one might expect of a vehicle of this size with responsive power steering and solid SUV suspension. Of course, it does not have the pick up or nimbleness of a European sports coupe, and one should not attempt to drive it that way, but if you want a reliable, comfortable, safe ride to get from point A to point B with all your gear in whatever weather, this might be the vehicle for you, especially if your day to day driving is not a long commute.This vintage also has very nice lines, stance and visibility, better than the latest version at least to my eye, and in darker colors especially, again to my eye, will get you favorable notice around town and wherever you go.
I purchased this vehicle from Sports and Imports in Pasadena MD. They are locally owned, have been around a good long time, and made my buying experience as pleasant as possible. I got very fair market value on my trade, and the price of the vehicle was also very fair. I would recommend anyone in the area in the market for a newer pickup or SUV to give their inventory a good look .
