Virtual Ride in the GMC Suburban
I had some work related errands to run (and a stop at BK) so I took the company's super high-mileage 1993 GMC Suburban. Now I know why no one ever wants to drive it. The steering at highway speeds is frightening, you can see at the end how much futzing it takes to keep it straight. The trans is a little wonky, but it's still accelerates real nice- that 350 is smooth and while it may not have a lot of horsepower, it's got a shitload of torque! You can also hear the bang and clunk it makes at 3:41; Whenever you make a sharp left it does that, and you can feel it too, feels like you ran something over.

2018 Ford Expedition Vs Chevy Suburban
Most capable Expedition ever Powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine with standard Auto Start-Stop plus a class-exclusive new 10-speed automatic transmission, the all-new Expedition is the most powerful Expedition ever. A newly available electronic limited-slip differential on models with Intelligent 4WD enables improved off-road capability by sending power where it’s needed. More than 50 percent of Expedition customers value towing, and 15 percent tow weekly or monthly. That’s why the all-new Expedition offers Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which makes backing up a trailer as easy as turning a knob. Plus, an available hands-free liftgate makes loading cargo easy. Most adaptable Expedition ever The all-new Expedition has a roomy, flexible interior. With seating for up to eight people and their gear, this full-size SUV makes modern family adventures more comfortable during short and long trips alike. The all-new Expedition is the first full-size utility to feature a sliding second-row seat with tip-and-slide functionality, providing easy access to the third row without the need to first remove a child safety seat. Once in the third row, even adults will appreciate more legroom and reclining seats. Expedition’s second- and third-row seats can be quickly folded flat with the push of a button to open up a cargo area wide enough to handle 4x8-foot sheets of plywood and other gear, depending on cargo weight and load distribution, even with the liftgate closed. Even the drive is more adaptable, with Expedition’s all-new Terrain Management System that lets customers choose between drive modes for optimal vehicle handling in different conditions. This includes normal for around-town driving, sport for more spirited trips, tow/haul for improved towing and hauling performance, eco for enhanced fuel economy, grass/gravel/snow for loose terrain, sand for low traction situations, and mud/rut for uneven surfaces. In addition, an all-new high-strength, aluminum-alloy body and redesigned high-strength steel frame form the foundation for Expedition’s rugged off-road and strong towing capabilities. Thanks to the use of advanced materials, the all-new Expedition saves up to 300 pounds, and the team reinvested that weight savings everywhere it counts to give customers more technology and convenience features than ever before. More than 40 features and driver-assist technologies new to Expedition help make the journey as enjoyable as the destination. These include class-exclusive enhanced active park assist to easily pull in and out of parking spots, as well as available 360-degree camera technology to help customers see more around their Expedition for easier parking. Chevrolet Suburban The 2016 Suburban is offered in LS, LT and LTZ models, with many impressive functionality and technology features, such as: A 5.3L V-8 engine with direct injection and other technology that support nearly 10-percent greater highway efficiency compared to previous models Fold-flat second- and third-row seats that enhance cargo convenience - including an available power-folding feature Standard eight-inch color touch screen radio with next-generation MyLink connectivity OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in WiFi hotspot (includes 3GB/three-month data trial) Up to six USB ports and six power outlets - including a 110-volt three-prong outlet - to support electronic devices of all kinds Available rear-seat entertainment system with dual screens and Blu-ray DVD player Conversation mirror in the overhead console that provides a panoramic view of the rear seats Keyless entry and push-button start Up to 121.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded Maximum trailering capacity of 8,300 pounds (2WD). Exterior highlights Refined and precisely sculpted, Suburban’s exterior design showcases inlaid doors that fit into the body side openings instead of over the top of the body, significantly improving the quietness of the interior cabin and contributing to improved aerodynamics. This helps the vehicle slip through the air on the highway with less drag, for greater efficiency. Lightweight aluminum hood and liftgate panels also enhance efficiency through reduced overall mass. Projector-beam headlamps flank the Chevrolet-signature dual-port grille - chrome on all models - and sweep into the front fenders. High-intensity discharge headlamps and light-emitting diode daytime running lamps are included on LTZ, along with an exclusive chrome grille surround. The LTZ model features more bright trim on the fascias, grille, body sides, mirror caps and more. It also offers power-retractable and illuminated side steps. Aside from the two new colors, Siren Red Tintcoat and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, other options for 2016 are: Sable Metallic, Silver Ice, Black, Summit White, Champagne Silver Metallic, Tungsten Metallic and Brownstone.
