GMC’s Stylish Cousin
This stylish 2009 Suburban LTZ soldiers on with a host of technological, safety, and comfort upgrades over previous years. The Suburban hauls more passengers and cargo than anything in its segment, a fact not overlooked by those who need such convenience or capability.
Cousin to the GMC Yukon XL, Cadillac Escalade ESV, and Chevrolet’s own Avalanche SUV/pickup, the Suburban is also related to the shorter full-size Tahoe and Yukon sport-utility. This 2009 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ has four-wheel drive. 5.3-liter 310 H.P. Flex-Fuel V8 provides plenty of power in front of a six-speed Autotrac 4WD transmission that will get you up the Rocky Mountains smooth and easily.
Autotrac 4WD Transmission
Autotrac 4WD active transfer case remains in 2WD mode until the system detects wheel slippage then automatically engages 4WD until traction is regained. This allows driver shift-on-the-fly capability from 2WD to 4WD at any speed using a control switch to the left of the steering wheel on the dashboard.
Active Fuel Management Technology
Chevrolet is one of several automakers offering V8 engines that can automatically switch to four-cylinder operation as a fuel-saving measure, and it’s a welcome feature. Considering the propensity of big SUVs to guzzle gasoline, every little bit of technology that reduces consumption is a bonus.
The LTZ has automatic air conditioning, leather seats, and a six-disc CD/MP3 changer, Autoride suspension, heated and cooled front-row, and heated second-row seats, power-release folding second-row seats, a power liftgate, limited-slip differential, Bose Surround Sound speakers, and 20-inch wheels.
17 cu.ft. roof-mounted cargo box will fit 6-8 sets of skis and 3-4 snowboards. Can be added or removed to fit your needs.
