1987 Chevy Suburban – Several automotive companies in the United States used the “Suburban” designation to indicate a windowed, station wagon type body on a commercial frame including DeSoto, Dodge, Plymouth, Studebaker, Nash, Chevrolet, and GMC. The (Westchester) Suburban name was in fact a trademark of U.S. Body and Forging Co. of Tell City, IN, which built wooden station wagon bodies for all of these automobile and light truck chassis and more.
Chevrolet began production of its all-steel “carryall-suburban” in 1935. GMC brought out its version in 1937. These vehicles were also known as the “Suburban Carryall” until GM cut the name to simply “Suburban”. GMC’s equivalent to the Chevrolet model was originally named “Suburban” as well, until re-branding it to “Yukon XL” for the 2000 model year.
With the 3rd generation Rounded-Line C/R & K/V models, the Suburban became a 4-door vehicle. The Rounded-Line 1970s body style remained largely unchanged for 19 model years – making this series the longest Suburban generation in production. Both 2WD (C/R) and 4WD models (K/V) were offered in 1/2 and 3/4 ton chassis.
