An outstanding truck/SUV

2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LS 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
So far my Av has been a great performer. Looks terrific in Metallic Gray and 20" rims. Locker rear end handles snow, ice and mud very well even in 2WD. Nicest, roomiest rear seats this side of a Ram Megacab. Cargo versatility is ridiculous- stuffed it to the brim with drywall and even rolled out a sleeping bag and spent the night in it when no hotels could be found! The ultimate highway cruiser-like a Cadillac. The fuel consumption readout helps keep your driving style conservative. The blind spots are big but the mirrors provide very good vision and the parking sensors are very accurate, even on something like a skinny pole. I'm very pleased with my Av!
A great looker-people WILL notice you! The interior is first-rate. Cargo carrying versatility. Decent but not overwhelming power. Cadillac-smooth highway ride. Rear sensors really help backing up.
Yes, mileage is poor. It's a really big truck! Best I've gotten is 18 on highway in summer. A tip: Keep the tires at max pressure; makes a huge difference in this vehicle. Only issue has been the rearview mirror fell off. it's heavy, carrying all the OnStar stuff. Dealership fixed no questions.
