Chevy used the Cleveland International Auto Show as the venue to announce how much drain a 2007 Chevy Suburban will put on the family budget, and from our seats, it ain’t all that bad. Here’s how the '07 'Burb breaks down in price.

LS 5.3L: $36,990 (Note: $2,550 less than 2006 LS)
LT 5.3L: $37,740
LTZ 5.3L: $45,655

LS 4WD: $39,790
LT 4WD: $40,540
LTZ 4WD: $48,455

LS 6.0L ¾-ton: $38,165
LT 6.0L ¾-ton: $38,915

LS 6.0L ¾-ton 4WD:     $40,695

      "15. I'm waiting for GM to come up with the ultimate FREE GAS CARD for those who purchase a Tahoe, Trailblazer or Escalade.

      How else are they going move these guzzlers off the dealer lots before fall?

      Uh well the new GMT 900s are the most fuel effiecent SUVs on the road in their class-and there are hybrids coming soon.

      I guess that's why the Tahoes and Yukons are down to a limited supply already.

      "DETROIT -- Initial indicators show that General Motors' high-stakes gamble to pull forward the launch of its new full-sized SUVs amid unstable gasoline prices might pay off.

      January sales of the first SUVs on the GMT900 architecture -- the 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade -- were strong. Dealers say the redesigned SUVs are selling at or near sticker price."

      I have to agree - as a car buyer with no need for a truck or minivan, I'm always floored when I see how much these things cost. The idea that anyone would spend $41,000 on a chevy truck is just insane, especially given that we all know that most SUV drivers never take them off-road, tow anything, or use all the cargo space very often.

      For $41,000 you could put yourself in a fully-loaded G35, a loaded BMW 3-series, or a low-mileage used W12 Phaeton. I know that those vehicles are not capable of doing the same things that a Suburban does, but to think that they're all in the same price-bracket is a severe case of "One of these things is not like the others, one of these things does not belong..."

      I'm pretty sure that GM has a six speed auto coming out before long. They already get better gas milage than there cometition( which is probably going to thin out).

      I agree with #9. In Georgia people drive trucks and SUVs. No, not just rednecks, but people with million dollar homes and ten cars. They have sports cars for fun and well over half of them will have a Z71 Tahoe or Surburban that they drive daily. These seem to be the "cars" of choice. GM is smart to update right now. The market isn't going to grow anymore for a while and they might can sqeeze a few competitors out of the SUV market.

      TJ => are you smoking something? I wrote in defense of GM's using a 4 speed automatic, just like many other fine manufacturers. I was addressing the lame argument by #7 that "still having 4-speed automatics" is an unusual or bad thing. Add another to my list: the 2006 Mitsubishi Endeavor comes with 4-speed auto.
      Mike W => your argument is so absurd it's almost not worth addressing. this is one of the highest output engine lines, with the most available low end torque, in the auto/truck world. GM has stuck with pushrod design for that low end torque delivery. you have to rev up a "modern" OHC V8 by thousands of revolutions to get the low end delivery from a GM pushrod. an 18 wheeler example is fine for commercial truckers, but not for Suburban drivers, what are you thinking?

      ...Or you could say "screw the family" and buy a Lotus Elise for the same price.
      • 8 Years Ago
      This thing still has a 4 speed automatic?
      and they charge how much? what is the invoice?
      • 8 Years Ago
      Well..."HOPE" SPRINGS ETERNAL?
      • 8 Years Ago
      Yay, only $75 per fill up! I love seeing the SWFs driving these things all by themselves.

      This is why Detroit is loosing the market share. Prices go up and quality goes down. What are they going to do when the Chinese show up next year? They'll loose even more share. The American public is expecting quality when they are charged a price like this. Yet, Detroit seems to be loosing the quality and raising the price. Like I said, the American public will not stand for this much longer. They will continue to loose market share. It's a shame because the automotive industry is the largets supplier of jobs in the US. Detroit is throwing them out left and right. Trouble is on it's way.

      Around here, suburbans are driven by middle and upper-class, most of whom can afford much nicer vehicles but just dont bother cuz the suburban "just works". Your average buyer, atleast where I live, Dallas, TX, doesnt struggle I'd assume.

      I know it is expensive, and I know people complain but my 2001 chevy surburban is the greatest truck/car I have ever owned. with 4 kids and three dogs it can take all of us comfortably and reliably to any destination. In seven years we have only had to replace the tires and do oil changes. Previous owners had a windshield crack fixed (yes that was all)
      That alone makes it a practical vehicle and makes up for the price. My fords and buicks cost us up to 3000 a year in repairs.
      this is my first chevy and I will never go back to another ford again. I was always sitting on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck. In the surburban We get 18 mpg in the city. I don't think that is terrible. My ford minivan got 16 in the city. I would recommend a surburban to anyone. We purchased ours used as a lease return for 21k in 2003 it is a bargain for the savings in maintenance and repairs. Totally worth the extra moola.

      I've commented on SUV's before, but one thing that surprises me is how much people spend on these.

      If these base price at 37k, with options, tax etc this is 45k out the door. I guess I am too cheap and too old (I remember paying 8K for first new car), I don't like paying 25k out the door for a minivan.

      Gas prices will slow this market down, but the big-SUV will still sell in huge numbers. Americans love the "big iron". Driving anything less than 5,500 lb is just not an option.
