2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I owned a 2002 Avalanche for 3 years and just bought a 2005 Avalanche this month. I found the 2WD fuel usage to be very good considering the size of the vehicle. Except for the tailgate support recall and routine maintenance, I did not have one problem with the vehicle. It has been fun and useful to drive.
The gate feature makes it great for hauling longer items. The ability to transport four adults comfortably and still have the cargo room of a pickup makes this vehicle very versatile. Being a camper, I have the flexibility of dropping the gate and sleeping in the back during storms.
The 2005 interior gray color is lighter than the 2002 so stains will show easier.
