1998 Chevrolet Suburban


What a stunning red on this fourbie. The listing doesn’t say that it’s been repainted, but it’s hard to imagine this is nearly a quarter of a century old paint that has seen 260,000 hard-earned miles. Sure, that’s a lot of miles for this 1998 Chevy Suburban 2500 HD, but rest easy because it was mechanically refurbished less than 40,000 miles ago, including a brand new 454 Jasper V8 and fresh new transmission. Add that to the fact that a 2019 study named the Chevrolet Suburban the second longest-lasting vehicle and you’ve got a truck that might just run forever. Plus, that red...

The Model.

The Chevrolet Suburban is a series of automobiles built by General Motors starting way back in the 1935 model year, making it the longest continuously used automobile nameplate in production. It has traditionally been one of General Motors' most profitable vehicles, which is a great way to ensure that the Suburban will continue to live on for many more generations; however, sales are declining, with total 2020 U.S. sales only representing 20% of the sales 20 years earlier.

The Suburban of today is a full-size SUV with three rows of seating, a full pickup truck frame, and a powerful V8 engine. It is one of the few station wagons available with all bench rows. The Suburban is the same height and width as the smaller-but-still-large Chevrolet Tahoe, although the Suburban is nearly 2 feet longer. The extra length provides a full-sized cargo area behind the 9 (NINE!) passenger seating area.

This particular model is the eighth generation of 12 total generations. The base engine for all variants was the small-block 5.7 liter (350 cubic inch) V8. The big-block 7.4 L (454 cubic inch) V8 was optional for the 2500 series, an option this vehicle has, courtesy of a Jasper replacement. The optional 6.5 L Turbo diesel was available on all models, although rare on the 1500 series.

The Specs.

This Suburban has 266,000 miles on the odometer, but there have been less than 40,000 miles put on it since it was thoroughly refurbished, inside, outside and mechanically too. And, like we said, THAT PAINT. Just look at it. It looks so good against all of the blacked out accents. Here’s a better look, including a cold start and some videos of this thing in motion.
