Given N, what is a finite non-abelian (and preferably non-solvable) group G in whose subgroup lattice Sub[G] there is an interval that is a chain of length at least N?

Since N can be arbitrarily large (but fixed), perhaps there is no easy answer. In that case, can someone suggest which sorts of groups to look at to find intervals that are chains (say, on the order of 10 subgroups in the chain)?

Edit: Thanks to Carnahan's answer, I see that I should have ruled out direct products of cyclic groups with nonsolvable groups. What I'm interested in are intervals in the subgroup lattice of the form:

${ K : H \leq K \leq G }$

where $H$ is a corefree subgroup of $G$.
