America's original people mover has evolved over the years, and here's a look how.

Decades before SUVs became the ultimate family haulers, the Chevrolet Suburban – aka the "Carryall Suburban" – was introduced in 1935 when the National Guard and the Civilian Conservation Corps required larger passenger vehicles. Next year marks the 85th anniversary of the Suburban's original launch, and in that time, the Suburban name has become the longest-running nameplate in automotive history.

As part of the run up to the all-new, 2021 Chevrolet Suburban (shown below), Chevy offered a look back at its biggest people mover over 85 years and 12 generations of designs, and we've assembled them all in this slideshow. Scroll through to check out all 12 generations of the Chevrolet Suburban!
