1978 Chevrolet Suburban Review
Cargo Capacity:
Family Car:
Fuel Economy:
Front Seats:
Maintenance Cost:

Tank — Paid $700 for it with a bad motor, swapped in a 305 and continued to be "big ballin". Very big and heavy truck. This was 2wd. Plenty of room, seats were comfy. Great year for these trucks. The 700r4 trans would be better than the 350 turbo for highway speeds.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)


Cons: mpg's
