2005 Chevrolet Avalanche Crew Cab 2500 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD (8.1L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 3rd Avalanche. I have bought lots of vehicles and this is my favorite. The 2500 is not your average Avalanche. It weighs about 2000lb's more and has an 8.1 litre engine. However, the outside diminsions are all the same. I now know why they put a fuel limiter switch on it. Definitely a man's truck. I pull a 3 ton boat and have to be careful because you can forget it is back there. Get better gas mileage with it pulling the boat than the 5.3 litre. But, the 5.3 did get over 20 mpg not pulling. Unfortantly they don't make it anymore.


Best Features

Pulling capacity, luxuary, comfort, gps, heated seats, XM, 4x4, looks


Worst Features

Come back with a 2500 with the diesel and Allison tranny.

2005 Chevrolet Avalanche Crew Cab 2500 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD (8.1L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The real thing. A Chevy big block with even more cubes than it's ancestors. Needed more than a standard cab truck for new family addition, and couldn't stand the idea of not having an 8' bed for occasional use. This fits the bill just right. A very versatile truck with all the comfort and power of an old full size vehicle. We found the midgate to be a breeze to operate. A real cool truck on a nice day with the midgate down, 4 windows and sunroof open. Will add a performance program, synthetic oil, and performance air filter to wake up the 8.1. 12 to 13 mpg on a variety of driving. The 7 month pregnant wife loves it too.


Best Features

Big Block, Mid gate, cargo covers, storage boxes. Extra steps on bumper. Bed mat & trim package. Bose speakers. Low key, no 8.1 liter badges. Bold style is cool.


Worst Features

The tire & wheel package looks a bit small on it. Wish all the locks were power including the tailgate and boxes.

Review

This truck drives like a Lamborghini - plenty of power and excellent handling, far better than the 1500 series. After one year and over 10,000 miles, the truck runs better than new and is free of mechanical problems. I love it!


Best Features

4X4. Electronic compass. Removeble rear cabin window. Sunroof.


Worst Features

Larger wheels and tires

Review

This truck is an excellent vehicle. I enjoy it more every day I drive it. It is like no other truck as far as versitility goes. And it is as comfortable, and smooth as any truck can get. It rides like a car--very smooth. I have used it for numerous things- mostly comfortable trips back and forth to work, but also have picked up plenty of supplies, and it is soo easy to change from suv to p/up truck. The top panels come off, and go back on so easy it is great. anyone interested in this vehicle, do not pass it up it is an excellent vehicle. buy it and enjoy it, as much as i do.


Best Features

Top panels so easy to use side compartments on outside of truck-- storage areas. awesome interior-comfortable great design on outside-an excellent looking truck. heated leather seats-has been great for the winter.


Worst Features

Lighted glove compartment (like the Trailblazer has), and lockable as well.

Review

I've had it a year and it is a joy to drive. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting more versatility than an ordinary truck would offer. Very comfortable ride on long trips and a joy to drive to work daily. Good power and fun to look at and own.


Best Features

Size, not to big, not to small. Attractive exterior


Worst Features

Richer look on the inside that matches the quality of the truck.
