The massive Chevy Surburban has room for big families and their pets and other cargo, with seating for up to nine, and impressive 45.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row. When called into service for moving or family vacations, it can also tow up to 9,600 pounds. Another point in its favor, the 2011 Chevy Suburban fuel economy is 15 city and 21 highway miles per gallon. “Add to this people- and cargo-moving mix a pleasant ride and all manner of creature comforts, and it’s easy to see why the Suburban made our list again this year,” say the Kelley Blue Book editors.
