I have owned several GMC crew and extended cabs and a Yukon but this Avalanche really does have it all. I have the Z71 package which I think gives it a little better look. The side locked storage is great as well as the looked tailgate with a water tight cargo area. Smooth as a nice car yet tough as a truck. Truly has it all. The more I learned about it after I bought it, the more I liked it. This Avalanche is like home to me, so comfortable.
I like the look, like the comfotable interior, and love the versatility.
I know this seems trivial (which shows how much I like everything else about it) but I do miss my built in coin holder (handy at drive thrus) and I wish the console opened from the driver side for easier driver access rather than from the front.
