Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The appearance of the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, attracted attention during her visit to the 43rd Asean Summit which was held in Jakarta 5-7 September 2023. One thing that attracted attention was the car that Kamala Harris drove during the Asean Summit in Jakarta, namely the Chevrolet Suburban.
Known for having super tight security protocols, US security took the SUV directly from the US to Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Tangerang. This car has of course been modified for the security purposes of the American super VVIP.
Quoted from Detik Otomotif, the standard type Chevrolet Suburban is marketed with a number of engine choices. The first type is the Chevrolet Suburban with a 5,300 cc V8 engine with 355 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm with a maximum torque of 383 lb-ft @ 4,100 rpm.
There is also a larger engine option, namely a V8 with a capacity of 6,200 cc. The 6.2 liter V8 engine is capable of producing up to 420 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm with a maximum torque of 460 lb-ft @ 4,100 rpm. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission with 4WD drive. This car is marketed with prices starting from US$ 53,200 or the equivalent of Rp. 814 million (Rp. 15,310).
Brought directly from the US, this large SUV is usually transported using C-17 and C-5 aircraft. The Chevrolet Suburban that Kamala used while in Jakarta wore the number plate 800-002.
The same number plate was used by US President Joe Biden at the G20 Summit in Bali some time ago. The number allegedly refers to the White House Address in Washington DC.
The Chevrolet Suburban is more often used by the US Vice President. Meanwhile, the US President often uses the Cadillac One or what is usually nicknamed The Beast.
