I traded in my 2005 Avalanche and this is a much improved vehicle. The front suspension is much improved and no longer pops and shakes like the older body style. The inside is much nicer and quieter too. Rear back-up sensors are a must, as rear visibility is terrible.
Love the versatility. Can be a SUV or a pick-up.
Insulate rear coolers. Ice melts too fast. Improve gas mileage.
