Chevy Wants the Suburban to be the Official Car of Texas

Pushing the petition
We’re all familiar with Change.org petitions — they run the gamut from video game gripes to calls to action regarding the most pressing social and political issues of our time. The petition platform can give anyone a chance to rally for change, and even auto industry giants like Chevrolet turn to the platform for support. The bowtie brand puts forth a few reasons to consider crowning the Suburban as the official ride of the Lone Star State.
Back in 1986, Texas Monthly referred to the Chevy Suburban as the “National Car of Texas.” That’s right — the Suburban is so big, it’s not some dinky state car. It’s national, baby.
Nowadays, you’ll find over 200,000 Suburbans gracing Texan roadways. The model is so popular that there’s a Suburban sold in Texas every 90 minutes, and five of the top 10 Chevy Suburban dealers are located in the Lone Star State. Texans love the Suburban so much, they bought more of the models than the smallest 25 states put together.
Of course, it’s only natural that the all-new Suburban, set to launch on December 10, is being built right in Arlington, Texas.
Currently, 1,051 people have signed the petition. If you’d like to add your name, click here to check out the campaign.
