2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LS 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I love the look of the car, and the fact that I can go out to dinner with fricends, and the next day toss lumber in the back. That is what I liked most about this SUV. But I have had issues with the Nav. system and a loud popping noise that shoots through the speakers, and you never know when but then the nav and dash systems blinks off and then comes back on (for now).
I like the look of the car, and the way that it drives.
The light gray interior is just to light, it shows the dirt.
I had not planned on getting one at the time, but I am sure glad that I did. LTZ package is awesome (wish I had the Navigation\Backup Camera\DVD package, but no complaints). I've towed a utility trailer, pop-up camper and full- size camper in the Colorado mountains with no problems. Sound system is great, interior is comfortable, engine is powerful, utility aspect is wonderful and, of course, it looks great. Yeah, it uses some gas, but you have to consider that before you buy it. I'm at 19,000 miles right now and I'd buy it all over again.
Body style, sound system, mid-gate, sunroof, 20-inch wheels, great power, standard rubber bed mat to keep things from sliding around in back, light in bed, comfortable seats, all the safety features, the low rumble of the exhaust
The interior material (orange peel texture) used on the dashboard, etc. is hard to clean\keep clean; the light in the bed should be triggered by the tailgate, not the passenger doors; gas mileage
Bought my 2007 Z71 Avalanche 1 year ago. Have 18,000 + miles with not a single problem. Truck has great, smooth power and excellent fit and finish. Rides extremely smooth even with Z71 package. In construction and usually get a new truck every 6 months, but plan to keep this one. Very comfortable with well placed and logical controls. Gas mileage averaging 14.8 over 18k of driving all in city. Best all around vehicle out today.
Ride and power. Rock solid reliability.
Like everyone, better gas mileage. Why can't GM build cars as stylish and class leading as these trucks?
I was pleasantly surprised at the quiet ride, and the seats provide good support and comfort. I have the rear end lock up on my 2wd. Every so often I'll go off road when fishing, but stick to trails. Glad The OnStar is a great feature and I really like the XM radio
Seat memory, on steering wheel radio controls, back up sensors. Z71 option for the off road yet 2wd!
Huge blind spot right behind the tailgate. I wouldn't even think of buying this vehicle without at least the back up sensors. The camera is the best way to go
Bought the Avi in California, drove it in desert with great comfort. Moved to Colorado mountains; with ABS, Stabili- trak, and 4WD on 20" wheels you simply cannot get this vehicle stuck in the Colorado winter! Much better comfort and feeling of safety and security than in my previous 2006 Avi. Fuel economy is very acceptable for the size of the Avi; E-85 delivers almost same mpg as gasoline; plenty of E-85 in Colorado and at about a dollar a gallon less cost that gasoline the cost factor is impressive, even with a slightly lower mpg. Much better in winter in the Rockies than my neighbors Escalade with 2WD.
Ride and handling are excellent; interior is great design fit and finish is also impeccable.
Provide the step slot again in the rear bumper. I am 6 ft. 5', but shorties cannot get into the bed.
