2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I find this truck to be reliable and fun to drive, but that changed when the transmission went out. Everyone one has no answer, and I hope that this is not the beginning of more problems.


Best Features

I do like the extra outlets and the storage.


Worst Features

A little more leg room in the back seat. Make the front a little more comfortable for long travels. Would like to lock the tailgate separate from the other locks.

2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my first Avalanche after buying 5 new Silverado pickups. It's a great versatile vehicle, has near luxury car like ride with great styling and comfort.


Best Features

Excellent seating comfort, ride and handling, very quiet ride and a great sounding Bose systems


Worst Features

Better fuel economy (it's worse than the Silverado) Make bright polished aluminum or chromed wheels option available.

2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LS 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Chevrolet has hit upon something pretty special with this truck. It is one great vehicle. It can cruise to formal events and can easily transform into a work truck. The mileage is pretty good considering it is a full size truck/Suburban. I was worried about the switching from 8cyl mode to 4cyl mode on the fly but that works superb and is inditinguisable to the driver.


Best Features

I love the versatility of the fold downs and fold outs and it is so easy to do. I bought the LTZ model and it looks great. All bells and whistles work wonderfully.


Worst Features

I have driven this vehicle 15k and have nothing negative to report, now dreaming ---if this thing could get 25 mpg now that would be something!

2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LS 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This truck is truly an awesome and versatile truck. A little soft in the suspension but that can be changed easily. Comfortable to ride in front seats or rear Easily fits 5 tall adults. Beefy and stout when compared to most other full-size trucks on the road. Easy to drive for my wife but yet still enough power for my lead foot.


Best Features

Mid-gate feature and removable tonneau cover. The tailgate lock is a definite plus. Ice chests/Tool boxes in sides.


Worst Features

Electric retractable rear window. Fully hinged tailgate that swings down to allow easier access to the back so you don't have to reach over the tailgate to get things out of the back.

Review

We ordered our 2007 Avalanche specifically to tow our Outback travel trailer. We equipped it with the optional 6.0L engine, 4.10 rear end, transmission oil cooler, heavy-duty 4L70E transmision and rear-view camera -- in other words, set up to tow. The Avalanche takes to the hills with confidence! 95% of the time, we use it as a comfortable family hauler. The redesigned interior matches our previous Sequoia in comfort and thoughtfulness of design. The drivetrain is not as smooth or refined as the Toyota's, but GM is getting closer. I can feel the 6.0L "burble" at idle, while the Toyota 4.7L was virtually silent. This is my first-ever GM vehicle -- and so far I have been pleased.


Best Features

The versatility is unbeatable. The Avalanche is perfect for our family with two boys in sports and all the running around that entails. The cargo box serves as a secure and weather-tight trunk for groceries, sports gear, etc. Or, you can pull off the covers, load up the dogs or bikes and just go!


Worst Features

This vehicle has lots of other positives -- the XM radio, navigation system, and rear camera are wonderful features. However, GM needs to modernize its engine and transmission options. A 5-speed transmission will available in 2008 or 2009; but who else still uses a 4-speed transmission?
