Chevrolet Suburban Comes To Life With Retro Styling

Design / Comments

This is something unique.

The Chevrolet Suburban is a firm favorite for government officials at national security agencies - or at least that's what Hollywood says. But it started out life as a family car and although it has swelled immensely since its inception, it is still just that. However, along with an increase in size, each new decade has brought a change in styling too. So what if today's Suburban mixed styling cues of the 70s with those of today's model? Wonder no more, as Oscar V, a concept artist on Instagram, has the answer to this and many other car questions that you never thought to ask.

Applying retro styling to modern cars is a hobby of the man, as he's previously done similar things with a Ford F-150 and other vehicles too. On this particular project, Oscar has reimagined today's Suburban with old-school bumpers, steel wheels, and a two-tone paint job that could only have come from five decades ago. It also gets a reimagined set of headlights that borrows from yesteryear while integrating the LED accents of today's model. There's no denying that the design is eye-catching, but this isn't one of those renders that makes us wish we could turn the digital into reality.

Although some of the artist's previous work is pretty appealing, with truck versions of the Volkswagen Touareg and Land Rover Defender, as well as a modern interpretation of the iconic Ferrari F40, this particular Suburban render is one that we can't say is on our Top 10 list. While many cars benefit from some retro styling, like the upcoming Nissan 400Z, for example, the Suburban of the 1970s has little in the way of appealing aesthetics that work with the design of today's model. Of course, this is just one opinion, and you may think differently, but either way, it's nice to imagine what could be.
