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.

  • Chevrolet C10 Suburban Problems 17 January 2013

    The Chevrolet C10 Suburban has conquered the market all over the world because of its reliable and high-performance features. The vehicle managed to attract consumers through its established image and durability that has been proven over the years. But just like any other vehicle in the market, the Chevy Suburban is not immune to problems and complaints from consumers. Quite a number of Suburban users have taken the time to point out their most common and pressing concerns on the model, and here are a few of them:


    Too much oil consumption

    In terms of practicality, the Chevrolet C10 Suburban definitely does not rank high on the list. A lot of people are complaining about the vehicle's excessive need to consume oil each time they take it out on the road. This makes it very high maintenance for owners because they have to keep refilling their Suburbans with oil just so they can make the most out of every trip. This is a huge challenge for people who are trying to keep their car expenses at a minimum because the Suburban's oil consumption is surely not helping their cause.


    Transmission

    Transmission is very crucial when driving a car, which is why a lot of consumers regard this so much and see to it that their vehicles have the best transmission possible. However, there are people who complain about the transmission failure on the Chevrolet C10 Suburban. Many of them are claiming that it is difficult to shift from one gar to another with the brand's 2005 model. After about 85,000 miles, they would often experience problems with the transmission even after they have taken the vehicle to a trusted mechanic. This is also a recurring problem with Chevrolet as other consumers report the same concerns with older generations of the C10 Suburban like the 1997 version.


    Interior

    Manufacturers of the Suburban have also gotten the ire of consumers who didn't like the interior setup of the vehicle. Some people find a few of the Chevrolet C10 Suburban parts unattractive and useless when it comes to letting them maximize the performance of the Suburban. There are also times when the liners get peeled off, the seat heaters are defective and tend to burn passengers, as well as water dripping from the headliner. These, however, are just minor problems and can be solved by simple repairs.
