2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I love my Avalance. I didn't think I'd like it at first, but it rides smoother than any other truck I know and having a weather-proof bed is great. I've pulled trailers and boats across country with no problem and it hasn't failed me yet. I think it is the most practical truck available, mostly because of the water-proof bed. The four wheel drive works great too, I've done some serious off- roading and haven't been stuck in a place I couldn't get out of with a little work.


Best Features

As mentioned above, my favorite feature is the weather-proof bed and the ability to extend the bed into the back seat for extra long items. The smooth ride is incredible as well, better than any other four wheel drive pickup I've been in.


Worst Features

With any truck or SUV, the fuel economy could be better. I get a around 17 miles to the gallon on the highway and 15 in the city, but it's no worse than most trucks

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 4dr Crew Cab 2WD (8.1L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Owned since new. Awesome power and it manhandle's my 7,500 pound travel trailer. Smooth riding for a 3/4 ton truck and sticks to the road like glue. Smooth shifting tranny, not the clunky type in some of the other GM products. This BLOWS away Fords and Doge Ram . Toyota or the rest of Toy trucks need not apply for the job. Easily swallows and carries 30 sheets of half inch drywall 4x8. Then switchs back to a family carrier. Most dependable set of wheels ever. I would buy another in a heartbeat but not with the wimp like 5.3 liter engine. Even with the 4:10 rear it won't tow well on the long hills.


Best Features

Number one is the smooth shifting tranny. Number two is the 8.1 liter engine has more torque and gets better milage than the 6 liter. Number 3 is the changeover for your dollar.


Worst Features

Some times the way the plastic parts join in extreme cold temps (interior) they make noise. Stock Mud-flaps.

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Love the versatility of being able to use the bed for several differnt types of uses. I like to be able to lock the tailgate. Is very convenient for loading ski gear, golf clubs or whatever & know that it is secure in the bed.


Best Features

The locking tailgate & the side compartments that also lock. The versatility of being able to change the bed to carry different types of loads.


Worst Features

Living in the northen area of the u.s. sometimes the tailgate will get ice build up & the lock will not secure & the tailgate will come open.
