The 2022 Chevrolet Suburban makes me want a bigger garage.

Because it’s a bigger than full-size SUV.  Great for large families and one of the largest non-commercial vehicles on the road.

it’s huge inside, versatile, and available with almost every conceivable option.  Either from the factory or aftermarket.

For example, it’s hard to imagine a motorcade that doesn’t include at least one Suburban.

And Chevy Suburban is the original sport utility vehicle.  With the first one rolling out of the factory in 1935.
