2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 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.

2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have always loved the look of the Avalanche and now I love everything about it. The ride feels like you are not in a truck at all but a big luxury car. It has alot of power and is very fun to drive.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the midgate bed. No one else has anything like it!


Worst Features

Better gas mileage would be great, but when you purchase a truck you don't expect it to be the best for mileage.

2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have 8000 miles on the unit and am getting 19.6mpg driving 40 miles/day to and from work. it's very comfortable on long trips.


Best Features

Fold down rear seat when I need to carry 8 ft pieces of lumber home.


Worst Features

Need to have a locking compartment in the cabin, either center console or glove box. It would also be nice to have the second sun visors back as a feature like my '02 had. Also the second cargo box light like the '02.

Review

I have owned several trucks over the years, and this Chevy Avalanche is definitely #1. So, if you are deciding which truck to buy, don't hesitate. It's worth every dime spent. It even has the OnStar feature. I can't say enough. It's just the best!


Best Features

Take out window and easy storage of window. Fast fold down of seats for larger cargo area.


Worst Features

None

Review

A great vehicle for a mix of luxury and utility type environments. It accomodates and impresses passagers with comfort and style, while providing area to haul almost any type of cargo. The interior provides room, comfort and quietness to conduct business in person or on the phone. The cargo area can be changed and adapted with ease and on-the-fly to provide security with lockable closed- in space or one can change the setup to enable hauling of large long items. All of this with one vehicle, saves me money and a tremendous amount of time and effort.


Best Features

I especially enjoy the ability to convert the cargo space on-the-fly to accomodate my variety of needs.


Worst Features

Provide more variety of colors for leather interior. Lower the height of the vehicle from the ground to provide greater ease in entering and departing the passenger space or change the spacing of the GM step bars to be more equal.
