Welcome to Generation Gap where we ask you about your favorite generation of a certain multi-generational car nameplate. Then, explain why your choice is right to the rest of us uneducated folks.


The Chevrolet Suburban. Perhaps the longest running nameplate in American automotive history, this people hauler has made it from its original form as a big, pretentious workhorse to its modern form as a big, pretentious icon. Whether it be a station wagon, a panel wagon, or a gigantic SUV, you have to admit the Suburban commands respect. Today, we begin with the first five generations, vehicles that definitely leaned towards the van/wagon side of the utility spectrum.
