I love this thing. Less showy than the 'slade while the sidewall allows for tons of curb jumping if you're hemmed in anywhere. Illegal level tinted so I can pretend I am a badass while two car seats are actually in back
Everyone I know bitched three years ago when I made this my fam vehicle choice: gas guzzler etc. Then oil fell off a cliff
Even wifey after much complaining about size, dtown parking blah blah has now come over to the dark side: insane height, visibility and storage. Sidenote: stand strong and force the woman into a fam vehicle you enjoy too. Even if you'll only use it 3 times/mos. Compromise on small shit but the foot comes down on vehicles. Just my two cents.
My only regret is for one year only in 2009 you could option the 'slade 6.2L motor in. 403hp/417 torque. This 5.3L 320hp/335 torque is fine if you mash the pedal but still a big difference considering a 5700lb vehicle.
The newest gen, particularly the Denali, has cool stylings but you lose considerable height and ground clearance. In fact, the new Suburbans in black to me look kinda like a hearse.
