Fun Facts about the Chevrolet C10 Suburban
- Officially introduced in 1934, the Suburban is known as the longest automobile nameplate that has continuously been used in production until today. It was initially offered to consumers under the Chevrolet, GMC, and Holden brands. A few years later, though, the people behind GMC opted to rename their version of the Suburban as Yukon XL. From then on, the Suburban model became exclusive to Chevrolet.
- The Chevrolet C10 Suburban was considered as a twin model of the GMC. The two car models come from the same manufacturer, and only have slight differences like the body trim, grille inserts, and the engines.
- In 1955, Chevrolet released a series of Suburban models that are almost exactly the same as the 1954 units. This was mainly due to the conflicts brought about by the Korean War, and because Chevrolet developers wanted to come up with more changes and improvements for the following model year. The units offered during this year were called the "first series".
- For a time, the C10 Suburban was also manufactured by Sevel Argentina S.A. From 1985 to 1991, the production of Chevrolet C10 units was not exclusive to General Motors because the company also had partnerships with other manufacturers from various countries. Sevel Argentina was an automobile company that was the reason behind the introduction of brands like Chevrolet, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Peugeot, and Citroen to the Argentinian automobile market.
- The C10 Suburban was among the most popular models of Chevrolet's C/K series. It was the most common purchase of consumers all over the world because of its power and efficiency. The C10 Suburban was also known as the half-ton truck because of its load capacity and size. It was also popular because new Chevrolet C10 Suburban parts were introduced and it had better weight distribution features as compared to the earlier truck models from the brand.
- In the 1980s, Chevrolet suffered from a drop in total sales because of the fuel crisis that affected the automotive industry in the '70s. The C10 Suburban became less popular and the brand fell behind Ford Motors in terms of sales. It was during this time that Chevrolet developers decided to come up with a C10 model that consumed lesser amount of fuel without an adverse effect on its performance.
