My 1988 R20 Suburban — I have a R20 series with the heavy duty tow package and the Big Block 454 or 7.4L engine with a THM400 transmission. this vehicle has been in my family for about 15 years and we've had the engine rebuilt only once since we had it. very reliable, parts aren't too expensive, runs really hot though, especially when towing. gas mileage is usually around 6-7 when pulling and if cruising lightly you might see 9.

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

Pros: pulls just about anything, easy to drive, solid like no other

Cons: gas mileage is horrible and overheats
