The C20 Suburban is a utility vehicle by the American automaker Chevrolet, which is built on a full-size truck frame. They have been made by Chevy in one form or another since 1935. In 1960, Chevrolet redid the naming schemes for vehicles, giving them a number and either a “C” or “K” designation. “C” stood for “Conventional” and was used for 2-wheel drive vehicles and “K” was for 4-wheel drive. The numbers 10, 20 and 30, stood for half-ton, ¾ ton and full ton vehicles, respectively. Therefore, a C20 was a 2-wheel drive ¾ vehicle.
The Suburban name was used since 1935 when Chevy introduced the “Suburban Carryall.” The name is used by several manufacturers to designate a windowed station wagon type body. Chevy used this name until 2000, when the C20 was rebranded as the Yukon XL.
The Suburban was the first SUV. Its utilitarian design made it a vehicle good for families, as a daily commuter, as an off-road vehicle or as a work truck. Its 3 rows of bench seating can accommodate a large family or a crew of workers.
Early editions were so utilitarian that they were usually used until they were completely worn out and scrapped. Survivors can fetch decent prices with collectors and those looking for a good candidate for a restomod project.
