2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


I had a 2000 Frontier Crew Cab and thought it was a good truck, that was until I bought the Avalanche. We've driven it to NYC and it was as comfy as my wife's Acura. I've hauled loads and loaded my touring motorcycle in the bed. It pulls trailers with ease and has plenty of giddyup when you want to pass. I average about 20mpg highway and 16mpg in the city. The stereo is awesome and the a/c gets cold in a flash. I am angry I waited so long to upgrade from the Frontier. That little truck is nice if you're a suburban pretender, but if you're a do-it- yourselfer or a working man, the Avalanche is the truck for you.

Best Features

My favorite feature is the bed cover system. We drove to NYC and DC for our vacation. It rained like Vietnam in DC and our luggage, which included my wife's designer gown, stayed dry. I also like being able to lay down the backseat and haul long objects.

Worst Features

The dash is rather plain-Jane. They need to spice it up a little.
