Actually......

Ford and Generic Motors entered into an agreement that Ford would engineer and design the 10 speed rear wheel drive trans and GM would would do likewise but with the front wheel drive trans.

Ford looked at the 9 speed trans GM designed and scrapped it, going instead with their own 8 speed modified from the 9 speed.

Just an FYI.

GM be GM

If you need a suburban, you need one. There really isn't much else available in that niche market. The Excursions (which are worth a small fortune now) just didn't go over good with the public. Maybe because they were butt-ugly.
