      Why it's on the list: Fuel Economy
      The Chevrolet Suburban 2500 kicks off our list. Surprisingly, it is one of two vehicles on the list to only have one category out of six that is potentially costly. Not only is fuel the most costly thing about this utility vehicle, it has one of the highest fuel costs of all the vehicles on the list. Although an exact cost has not been given, considering the way gas prices keep getting higher, it's no wonder this would take a small fortune to fill up. With a 39-gallon tank and EPA-estimated fuel economy of 12-mpg combined, this large utility vehicle just isn't worth it. You might as well get a 2013 model as it gets considerably better gas mileage, although it'll cost roughly $10,000 to $15,000 more depending on what model you choose.

    This article is biased as it does not list all other factors on comparable vehicles. If it wants you to avoid the suburban for purchase, they should  tell you if  a Sequoia or Armada are better. Do they provide all the same benefits at a better value and why? the same goes for the Durango and the explorer as opposed to the 4runner or Landcruiser. There has to be a direct comparison in order to make a value judgment here.
