Which Is the best SUV and is there an SUV that stands out among those used for limousine services? We, at Chief Chicago Limo, will share our experience and data with you.
There are many full-size American SUVs and Chief Chicago Limo carries them all. Enjoy a luxury limo ride in a GMC Yukon, Chevrolet Suburban, Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator or Cadillac Escalade. They are all spacious and comfortable enough to meet your ground transportation needs.
By the way, USA is the only country in the world which makes an SUV of such size and space that can fix up to 7 passengers and their luggage. Many in our industry tried to introduce other SUVs in their limo fleets but it did not turn out successful. For example, Lexus LX and Infinity QX80 are great and luxury vehicles but space-wise, they can be used only for sedan orders. When their 3rd row is up, the trunk size is significantly smaller for the purposes of airport transportation.
Which Is The Best SUV For Passenger Transportation According To Chief Chicago Limo?
Meet the Biggest and Baddest SUV. The best SUV for passenger transportation, according to us, is the Chevrolet Suburban. Especially when it comes to Chicago airport limo services. Almost a decade in the limo industry, we closely monitored the behavior of each vehicle on our fleet. We analyzed maintenance costs and took into consideration chauffeurs’ and clients’ feedback. In addition to that, we follow the market trends, car forums and blogs. Last, but not least, we observe what vehicles the Federal Government prefers to use.
Based on all of the above, the last five years we increased the number of Chevrolet Suburbans in our garage. Below are some of the reasons that made us do that.
Why Chief Chicago Limo Bets On The Chevrolet Suburban?
Based on our experience and data gathered, we decided that the Suburban is the best luxury SUV for the limo industry. Please have in mind that we are looking at the vehicles from a commercial point of view where the car is used and abused for years, 24/7. Let’s see why we love that large SUV so much.
The Chevrolet Suburban is one extremely reliable SUV which makes it the preferred choice on our fleet. It has undergone minor repairs- mainly wear and tears. The biggest problem with the Suburban was the transmission failure at around 180,000 miles. But for these miles- that is not unexpected. Remember, we are talking about heavy use and abuse of these vehicle, sometimes even 24/7. That was the only time the car spent more time in the shop. Rest were like A/C problem, water pump, a couple of Suburbans had a problem with the break booster. We even sold one which was 350,000 miles and was running like a baby. Unfortunately, the city of Chicago does not allow us to use it as a limo after the 5th year.
