Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Tim asks: Thank you for your quick and illuminating response to my earlier question. I am going back to measure my garage to verify the dimensions as the Suburban was cutting it close, but perhaps I can get it in. I have a few quick follow-up questions, if you don’t mind:
4. Regarding the Excursion, are there any particular years I should look for, or they’re all good (this is my current assumption).
My reply: The Suburban has the advantage of choice. You will find many more potential candidates because they never stopped making Suburbans whereas the Excursion was last made in 2005. That means it will be harder to find one with reasonable miles and in reasonable condition.
The Suburban, as you probably know, is just a longer Tahoe. Thus it has all of the merits described previously as regards its drivetrain, parts availability and so on. I’d look around for either, though – as regards Suburban vs. Excursion – and buy the best one you can find for the least amount of money.
