Introduction of Large SUVs to Baby Boomers


If you are not already familiar with the term Baby Boomer, they are those born in towards the mid-20th century somewhere in the 1940s up to mid-1960’s up to 64. This the immediate period just after the second world war where the United States saw a surge in the birth rate – known as the baby boom. This was also the period which was a golden era of sorts for the automobile industry which saw a major boost in demand for all kinds of automobiles from cars to minivans to buses and trucks. This period was also the start of the advent of modernization and saw revolutionary changes to the design of automobiles that gained lots of popularity among youngsters of those days – the baby boomers. Things have come a long way now and most baby boomers are now in their 50’s and some even septuagenarians. They deserve some respect as they have driven most predecessors of our current day cars, SUVs and trucks and it remains to be seen whether some of the big SUVs are still suitable for this segment of customers. We called on Chevrolet dealer Arab to know which of the large SUVs can be introduced for baby boomers.

The Chevrolet Suburban

The Suburban is one of the most popular or widely sold full size SUV with an eye on the family segment with its space to seat up to 9 on its LS models, up to 14 charging points scattered across the length and breadth of the vehicle, Built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot availability and an available 6.2L V8 engine that delivers 420 horsepower for those desiring enormous power. Normally too, you get a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine that will make your adrenalin surge. The 2019 Suburban apart from being family-friendly is also quite suited for the baby boomers with its spacious interiors and comfortable and secure seating arrangement our seniors will love. Not limited to the passenger side, the Suburban has some nimble technologies on board that will make handling this huge SUV a breeze for the senior drivers. This is achieved using adaptive safety and driver assistance features such as the Forward Collision Alert, Lane Change Alert, Blind Zone Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and a Safety Seat Alert that vibrates the driver seat in addition to audible and flashing alerts. The IntelliBeam headlamps will eliminate the need to fidget around the levers to dip the lights or adjust them as per need.

2019 Tahoe Large SUV

This is another great offering from Chevy that baby boomers will love. It comes with a 5.3L EcoTec 3 V8 engine that offers a best in class EPA estimated mileage of 22 MPG on the 2WD models and 21 MPG on the 4WD models. On the outside is one big sculpted profile with all the necessary amenities you will require for an off-road adventure as well as refined sophisticated styling to go with your urban look. The side-step lines the two sides of the vehicle for assisted entry. Traditional odometer and gauges line the information cluster, steering is leather-wrapped and premium stitching lines the upholstery. The Tahoe is replete with all the required safety features as in the Suburban and Chevrolet Arab shared that the Tahoe is one of the favorite choice of baby boomers frequenting the premises.
