2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I have truly enjoyed this truck. I have owned Chevy 1500's and 2500's for years. I like the road feel of a Chevy. I think the interior is well conceived. I wasn't a fan of the plastic exterior in the beginning, but the look grew on me. Then GM offered the "Without Body Hardware" option. This removes the lower plastic panels. That did the trick for me.
I think this design is the perfect SUV / truck for those in the suburbs. This truck seats 4 easily, and 6 if you're close friends. It also allows you to have lockable dry storage for the cargo I always needed a truck for.
