Chevrolet Suburban – Star Of Film And TV

July 13th, 2021 by

The Chevrolet Suburban has been an icon for over 75 years. Over that time, it has proven to bring families together for adventure and through life. Football practices, trips to the Blue Ridge Mountains and down to the Outer Banks – no other vehicle has done more than its owners ask for it to do.

That is why a Suburban has the distinction of two milestones. One, it became the 12 millionth vehicle to roll off the Arlington, Texas assembly facility. Second, it received an Award of Excellence star from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce – the purveyors of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The second milestone is because the Chevrolet Suburban played a huge role in film and television. From fleets of Suburbans carrying the bad guys to take on the hero to becoming the preferred vehicle carrying the stars to the award ceremonies, this flagship of Chevrolet’s SUVs shines anywhere the spotlight is shone on it.

In fact, did you know the Chevrolet Suburban made more than 1,750 appearances on film and television? Its first appearance came in 1952 and has always played the supporting role since. Since 1960, you can spot a Suburban in at least one major motion picture. It has been so popular as a supporting performer that it made its appearance in 30 award-nominated films.

The Chevrolet Suburban is a veteran of the entertainment industry, working longer than any performer today. It is worthy of its star – now on display in the city of Arlington, Texas.

The Arlington, Texas Assembly plant is not only the home of the Suburban. It also produces the Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, and the Cadillac Escalade and ESV. Since 1999, the Suburban has made Arlington its home, part of the 1,200 vehicles that are produced daily at that facility.

Arlington also exports finished Suburbans and other large General Motors SUVs to 32 other countries around the world. That is why you should not be shocked when you see one in Dubai or Moscow. Not to mention, these big SUVs remain a popular family vehicle choice here in the Carolinas.
