This is one great truck.

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


This is Avalanche #2 (and I am about to buy #3). There is no comparing this car to a Ford, Dodge etc. They are not as flexible, nor have the fuel economy that the Avalanche has. 19.9 MPG Hwy, 13.5 city; avg 16.5 MPG. The midgate is terrific. The vehicle is as comfortable as the Escalade yet costs $1,000's less and uses less gas. It is a truck, SUV, SUT, and luxury car all at once (I know, I also drive a BMW 528it). Never had anyone say anything negative about my Avalanche. No major problems, some minor ones, all covered by warranty. Dealer has been great. Mine is Z71 LT w/o cladding; pretty loaded. Z71 is not necessary. Side rails are a must. Don't hesitate to buy, you will love yours too

Best Features

Midgate: if you do not own one, you cannot comprehend the versatility of this vehicle. Bose stereo is awesome. Comfort behind the wheel, seating position, the seats are comfortable & steering wheel controls are terrific. Go for a drive, I dare you. This car swallows my kids stuff for college.

Worst Features

Standard back up sensors, better brakes, 100% vehicle locking at push of FOB, higher quality on fiberglass covers & optional colors (black only now). Diesel option would be terrific (increased towing capacity w/o sacrificing fuel mileage).
