2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD (8.1L 8cyl 4A)
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.
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.
The tire & wheel package looks a bit small on it. Wish all the locks were power including the tailgate and boxes.
