Chevrolet Suburban Receives Award of Excellence in Hollywood

The Chevrolet Suburban will celebrate its 85th birthday with a full redesign, alongside the Chevrolet Tahoe, the GMC Yukon and the Cadillac Escalade.


  • Chevrolet Suburban starred in at least one film a year since 1960
  • Suburban and Tahoe Starred in more than 1,750 movies and 700 TV shows
  • First vehicle ever to receive an Award of Excellence Star

The Chevrolet Suburban has been around for quite a while. In fact, it’s the longest-running nameplate in automotive history, having been introduced in 1935, and it’s been on sale ever since.

The Suburban has also had an illustrious career, both on the big screen and on the small one, and has just been handed an Award of Excellence Star at Hollywood & Highland. During a ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce recognized the full-size SUV’s acting career which spans six decades.

As a matter of fact, according to General Motors, the Chevrolet Suburban starting its acting career in 1952, and since 1960, it has appeared in at least one movie every year since. Together with the Chevrolet Tahoe, which has also enjoyed a significant acting career since its introduction in 1995, the two SUVs have appeared in more than 1,750 movies and 700 television shows.

They were also cast in 30 award-nominated films, and the last rather amusing statistic is that the Suburban and the Tahoe performed 100% of their own stunts.

This, ah, award comes just days before the fully redesigned, 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe will make their world debut on December 10th. And Tim Kozub, GM’s Exterior Design Manager for Full-Size Trucks, said their on-persona played a role in the styling of the next-generation SUVs.

“This is a great example of how life and art influence each other. The popularity of Suburban and Tahoe in film was first inspired by the real-life roles they played in the military, in law enforcement and family trips around the world,” explained Kozub in a press release. “Today, their role in Hollywood inspired the design of the all-new models, as we integrated the sense of capability, action, and importance associated with Suburban and Tahoe on screen.”

The new Suburban and Tahoe models will be based on the same platform as the recently redesigned Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500.
