The Chevrolet Suburban became the first vehicle in history to be given the Award of Excellence star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. Recognizing the 67-year career of the Suburban as a star of film and television shows, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce showcased the iconic American SUV during an event in December 2019.
The Suburban first appeared on screen in 1952, and it’s starred in a whopping 1,750 films and television series. Since 1956, this SUV has been in at least one TV show per year, and at least one film since 1960. Thirty of those films have been nominated for awards. With a striking exterior, capable powertrain, and comfortable interior, the Suburban is an ideal SUV for on and off the silver screen.
“There’s really nothing else like the Chevrolet Suburban in this business, for two reasons,” said Dennis McCarthy, Hollywood picture car coordinator. “First, it’s one of the most versatile vehicles in the business, able to fit with any type of character. Second, it can help instantly give a scene added importance. When a convoy of black Suburbans appears on screen, you know that’s not the time to leave your seat to buy popcorn.”
The Suburban isn’t alone in its popularity on screen, either. The Tahoe, which was introduced in 1995, has appeared on screen in at least one film and television show since its inception. Together, the Suburban and the Tahoe have been in a whopping 2,500 films and TV series.
