    CHEVROLET SUBURBAN HD Z71

    The Chevy Suburban HD Z71 is the culmination of a "what if" exercise that melds the popular Suburban 2500HD with the popular Z71 off-road package – a combination not currently offered by the factory – and partners it with a new, fuel-saving smaller-displacement diesel engine. The concept uses many production parts, including the front-end assembly from Chevy's HD trucks, along with some unique custom touches – including rear wheel flares that pick up the styling cues of the front end. Power is generated by a new 4.5L diesel engine that gives this off-road-ready Suburban power, poise and efficiency.

    Vehicle highlights:

    * Suburban 2500HD Z71
    * Silverado HD front-end assembly
    * Z71 running boards
    * Custom rear wheel flares
    * New 4.5L diesel engine
    * New rear axle
    * Chrome tow hooks
    * Custom interior touches

    GM Accessories features (production and concept):

    * Twenty-inch wheels (concept)
    * Chrome hood louvers
    * Fuel door (concept)
    * Roof rack (concept)
    * Trailer hitch close-out
    * Two-way remote start

    :bowdown: what kind of output from the small diesel. That's a lot of weight to push around.

    GM should produce this as shown. Truck afficiandos have been dying for a factory diesel Suburban for a long time and people with diesel Excursions will now have something to trade for.

    Oh thank God. I was starting to worry they'd run out of ways to bulk up the Suburban.

    God i wish this stupid ass fad of putting big rims with offroad tires on trucks would go away. Take that thing anywhere near a decent amount of mud and they will get scratched all to hell. Pointless.

    the rims look fucking terrible anyway

    I like the truck front end on it better than the tahoe front.

    Tahoe front for 1500 Sub
    Truck front for 2500

    Odds are that the 4.5 duramax will put out the same power as the 01-04.5 6.6 duramax motors did.

    And now you have it. Can't you hear the rejoicing?

    I'm serious, more than a few people thought they'd have to dualie the rear axle or add vertical exhaust stacks or...or...god knows what.
