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


Review

This truck/suv has it all. You can lock items in the back with the rigid cover like an SUV. You can take it off and haul items in the bed. You can extend the bed into the cab of the truck. It is much more versatile than the standard truck.


Best Features

The exterior is sharp and unique. The versaility and features offered are also one of a kind.


Worst Features

The braking is soft and takes some getting used to.

Review

I have had it for 3 weeks now, and I drive 60 miles each way to work. Great ride. Gas mileage is not bad for the highway. I have been averaging 19-21 mpg. @ 80mph. We tow our camper with it, and it handles it with no problems. Very comfortable back seat areafor our 3 kids.


Best Features

Everything


Worst Features

None that I can think of.

Our new Chevy Avalanche is the best vehicle we have ever owned. The smooth ride and comfort of the interior are awesome. XM Radio is a surprisingly nice feature.


Best Features

Smooth ride and great interior, especially the seats.

Gas mileage needs to be 10-15% better.

Review

I love this vehicle. So smooth, and rides like you're on clouds. The Bose stereo system is excellent. I can't believe I'm doing 65 mph. It feels like it 25mph, that's how smooth it is. I love this vehicle. If I trade it in later on, it will be for another one.


Best Features

Ssteering controls and adjustable pedals. The up high feel. The smooth drive.


Worst Features

None

Review

I've used every inch of this vehicle and it can handle any type of cargo. One of the best options for self employed construction, plumbing, etc. Z66 impressed early but as time goes on it needs far too much dealer work. Comes with almost anything you could need for short, mid, or long drives. Comfortable seats both front and rear but leather is very cheap and wears quickly. Stereo is well below the quality that should be expected for the price of this vehicle. Eats oil like nothing I've ever driven. Gas mileage is horrible...and I was prepared for bad mpg, but not single digit bad. Tires become worn easily for some reason. Any truck is as good and 10K+ less with fewer overall hassle


Best Features

Cargo covers keep 12ft lumber dry, styling still new to the market, 5 adults easy, nice looking workhorse if you can afford it


Worst Features

Better quality leather, better quailty stero, rear a/c vent location is terrible, body armor pure style no true function (go steel), bed lockable w/other locks, cargo tray w/wheels, fix oil consumption/gas consumption, standard backup sensor, less plastic inside...it's only a very expensive truck
