The 2007 Chevrolet Suburban comes in five basic flavors: the half-ton LS ($37,760), the half-ton LT ($38,535), the half-ton LTZ ($47,035), the three-quarter ton LS ($38,945), and the three-quarter ton LT ($39,705.) Seating capacity in all models is 6 to 9.
The half-ton models are outfitted with a 31 gallon gas tank, the three-quarter tons with 39. Payload limits for the half-tons is 1,593 lbs. for the 2WD and 1,657 for the 4×4. The three-quarter ton 2WD can handle a payload of 2,561 while the 4×4 jumps to 2,657.
With a 5.3 liter V8 under the hood, the half-tons are estimated to get 15 miles per gallon in the city for the 2WD and 21 highway while the 4 x 4 returns 15/20. Jumping to a 6 liter V8, the half tons return 14/19 for 2WD and 14/18 for the 4 x 4. (The 5.3 liter is standard across all models with an E85 version of the same engine and the 6 liter V8 optional.) A four-speed transmission with overdrive is standard on the half-tons, while the three-quarter ton models carry the heavy-duty version of the same transmission. Both have a tow and haul mode.
The driver and occupants of the 2007 Chevrolet Suburban are protected by two-stage air bags with additional bags for the head position on the side as a standard feature in LT3 and LTZ (optional on other models.)
