If I had to pick a car it would be the Bullitt Mustang or the James Bond Aston Martin.

The stats from the article are pretty cool: Suburban has appeared in 1,765 films over 67 years Suburban has appeared on television at least once every year since 1956 Suburban has appeared in at least one movie every year since 1960 I'm sure a lot of these, especially in recent times, are paid placement, but it's still kind of fun. As for the others, the nomination process excludes many of what we would call "iconic" cars. Nominees are required to be in the industry for a specific length of time, so that would exclude a car like the Bullitt Mustang, which was only in a single film. Nomination also requires agreement from the nominees' management team and there is an ongoing maintenance cost of having a star.

Or it could have been recognized because it is the longest lived name plate in automotive history having been in continuous production since 1935. Even through the WWII years. Pretty impressive.

According to Wikipedia, the Suburban debuted in 1933 as a mostly wooden bodied carryall available only to the National Guard and the CCC. It seems it became available to the public in 1935. Interesting stuff. A friend of mine has a 2013 1 ton version 3500.

Wow looks great. Nice! Have you ever got a police ticket for the illegal red lights on the front? You would around here, and KITT wouldn't be able to "talk" his way out of it.

Burb (and derivatives) = ultimate SUV. 20th century family truck that transitioned to a luxury vehicle with an FBI vibe in the 21st, largely unchanged. Eat your heart out Ford Explorer! Tony Soprano = GMT400 Burb. [censored] yeah!
