You can find some pretty cool rides listed for sale on online auctions these days. This 1996 GMC Suburban 2500 SLE 4×4 is a prime example of that.
Recently hitting the virtual block at cars&bids, this 1996 GMC Suburban 2500 is a rare heavy-duty model, but more importantly, it was modified by JB-RES-Q for service as a Fire and Rescue vehicle. The exterior is covered in a genuine white-and-red Fire and Rescue livery, and the vehicle still includes the service vehicle lights and sirens, plus strobe lights in the grille, turn signals and taillights.
Unfortunately, the emergency goodies were disconnected after the vehicle left service, but the seller states that the wiring is still present and ready to go. In the corners, this GMC Suburban rolls on 16-inch wheels, while reflective decals were added to enhance the aesthetic even further.
Providing motivation is a 6.5L turbodiesel V8 engine, rated at 190 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque when new. The go is sent through the 4L80 four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive system. The odometer reads 76,400 miles.
There are several other cool bits worth pointing out here, like the 42-gallon fuel tank, or the heavy-duty springs and trailering equipment, or the off-roading skid plates. This vehicle also includes the Marketing Option package, which adds tinted windows, a roof rack, power locks, power windows, and leather-wrapped steering wheel. Also check out that nifty center-mounted control panel filled with switches. Gray upholstery covers the seats and various surfaces.
Unfortunately, this 1996 GMC Suburban 2500 SLE 4×4 has already sold, trading hands with a high bid of $9,310. A total of 16 bids were placed. But hey – you never know. Maybe it, or another vehicle just like it, will pop up for sale again some time in the future.
