2002 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN: AMERICA'S FAVORITE WORKHORSE

2002 Chevrolet Suburban
Chevrolet Suburban, the oldest vehicle nameplate in the industry, adds conveniences to its popular LS trim, makes its standard 5.3-liter V8 engine ethanol-compliant and offers other refinements in 2002.

New for 2002Suburban's standard LS trim now includes heated, outside rearview mirrors with self-dimming driver-side; comfortable six-way power driver and passenger seats; side-step assist steps; electric rear-window defogger; fog lamps; and HomeLink Úniversal transmitter. (HomeLink enables programming of three separate electronic home functions, such as garage doors, gates and exterior house lights.)

'Suburban continues to be America's premiere full-size SÚV, and the top customer choice among vehicles of its size,' said brand manager Steve Ramsey. 'We continue to refine it to maintain a customer loyalty rate that has exceeded 50 percent.'

Other model year changes include the availability of the Redfire Metallic exterior color with body-color components, including the front bumper, bodyside moldings and wheel flares. Electronic climate control with a sunroof is also available on LT models in 2002. Suburban 2WD and 4WD, half-ton and three-quarter-ton models come in two trim levels for 2002: LS and LT. The base trim has been discontinued.

Powertrains

2002 Chevrolet Suburban
Suburban's impressive powertrain lineup continues with the Vortec 5300 V8 as the standard engine on half-ton models. Ninety percent of Suburbans sold are 1500 series (half-ton models). The Vortec 6000 V8, however, is standard on the Suburban 2500 series (three-quarter-ton models), and the Vortec 8100 V8 is Optional.
Workhorse with smooth ride

2002 Chevrolet Suburban
Suburban's legendary workhorse reputation continues with enough space to fit a 4 x 8-foot sheet of plywood on the load floor with the doors closed (and rear seats removed). Pulling power can be as much as 12,000 pounds when Suburban is properly equipped. Yet Suburban maintains a smooth ride with the independent front torsion bar suspension that is more commonly found on high-end sport sedans.

Added traction

2002 Chevrolet Suburban
Suburban also offers its Autoride system, which automatically controls shock damping on a continuous, real-time basis to smooth bumps in the road. The Autotrac four-wheel-drive system offers four drive modes plus neutral to suit nearly any driving conditions. Suburban's Electronic Traction Assist system for two-wheel-drive models delivers more controlled acceleration and stability over most slippery surfaces.
Z71 Off-Road Package

Suburban off-roaders have another choice: the Z71 model. Its specially tuned off-road suspension uses specific shock absorbers and jounce jumpers with standard stabilizer bars. A locking rear differential, four-wheel drive and P265/70R-17 all-terrain tires increase traction. Skid plates protect vital underbody components, and OnStar provides added security. Completing the package are Z71 badging, a rocker treatment, a roof rack, specific wheels, fog lamps, body-color grille and bumpers and tubular assist steps.

With those impressive choices plus refinements for 2002, the Suburban legend continues – and grows.
