Nothing says, "Go anywhere, do anything," quite as well as this bright red 1989 Chevrolet Suburban SLE. This 'Burb offers V8 power, so it moves effortlessly regardless of the terrain, and with a long list of features, it's the ultimate machine for taking everyone you know to some pretty remote places.

Incredibly, this Suburban shows just 45,209 original miles and it's quite likely that it's wearing original paint that's in fantastic condition. Despite the off-road-ready looks, it appears that this one has spent most of its life protected and carefully driven and the shiny finish is a testament to the care it has received. These trucks are still handsome and functional-looking, one of the best designs if you're a fan of big SUVs, and with details such as the running boards, chrome bumpers, and tinted glass, it takes on a very serious look. We don't see any evidence of paint work or repairs and having lived in the Pacific Northwest all its life, obviously rust is not an issue you need to worry about. It sports the desirable dual "barn door" configuration instead of a conventional tailgate, which makes loading it up in close quarters a lot easier. It's also set up to tow with a Class III hitch and oversized mirrors, so don't be afraid to put it to work!

The sumptuous gray cloth interior was one of GM's best, rivaling anything from Cadillac and making the Suburban the most luxurious GM vehicle you could buy in 1989. The seats, even the driver's chair, are in excellent condition with minimal wear and no damage or discoloration. Heavy-duty mats have been protecting the carpets since Day One and the second and third rows are almost like new. Unquestionably someone loved this truck and treated it like something special. Just about everything was standard, including cold front and rear A/C, a powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo, cruise control, power windows and locks, a tilt steering column, and the list goes on. The instrument panel has been dressed up with a walnut veneer and there are a myriad of storage cubbies, cup holders, and other useful touches. There's also massive storage in the rear area, even with the third seat in place, making this this ultimate road trip warrior.

As I mentioned, this Suburban came standard with a 5.7 liter V8 and it still offers plenty of power to get this big rig moving. It's the original engine and with so few miles there's never been any reason to take it apart, so it runs like the factory intended. It looks quite stock under the hood with signs of careful maintenance and care over the years and as with most GM trucks of the period, parts are plentiful and service is easy. New parts include a fresh radiator, water pump, heater core, battery, shocks, and brakes. The 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission offers easy highway cruising and the 4-wheel-drive transfer case and axles are fully operational. The suspension wears a two-inch lift kit and all the factory skid plates are still in place, although it doesn't really look as if this truck has spent any time off road. A newer dual exhaust system is a bit throatier than the original, but it also adds power you can feel. Shiny Mickey Thompson "bullet hole" alloy wheels are part of the package and wear big 285/75/16 all-terrain rubber.

With lots of receipts for all the recent work, this immaculately kept Suburban is a rare find. So many of these trucks were abused and used up, it's remarkable to discover one that's been loved. Call today!
