Chevy Suburban Alternative

The Chevy Suburban 2500 has been discontinued. This vehicle is a favorite for police and fire departments. It is used for chief vehicles and tactical response units among other things. Alternatives to the Suburban include Ford Transits, Dodge ProMasters, and GM Vans; however, these options can be costly and have a long delivery period.

The Durashell 140 by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies is a favorable alternative to the Chevy Suburban, especially for fire and police departments. Combined with a crew cab short-bed pickup truck such as the Ram crew cab, the Durashell creates a work vehicle that exceeds the Suburban. Durashell service bodies make work trucks of similar size as the Suburban, but they are durable and lightweight. The fiberglass composite material that makes up the Durashell weighs less than traditional steel utility bodies. Lightweight vehicles provide a better fuel economy and lower maintenance costs.

Durashell service bodies are completely transferable. Unlike the Suburban or other alternative vehicles, the Durashell can be removed from a pickup in minutes and placed on another when a truck is a rental, damaged, or in the shop for maintenance. The Durashell can easily be equipped with side doors and compartments, 100% extendable sliding trays, and organizable shelves for easy access to equipment. These features make the Durashell a more ergonomic option than the Suburban. It is also safer for crews because they are not reaching back for supplies while driving.
