Almost there...but still just a Chevy
By SlashDG91 on


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


I've used every inch of this vehicle and it can handle any type of cargo. One of the best options for self employed construction, plumbing, etc. Z66 impressed early but as time goes on it needs far too much dealer work. Comes with almost anything you could need for short, mid, or long drives. Comfortable seats both front and rear but leather is very cheap and wears quickly. Stereo is well below the quality that should be expected for the price of this vehicle. Eats oil like nothing I've ever driven. Gas mileage is horrible...and I was prepared for bad mpg, but not single digit bad. Tires become worn easily for some reason. Any truck is as good and 10K+ less with fewer overall hassle

Best Features

Cargo covers keep 12ft lumber dry, styling still new to the market, 5 adults easy, nice looking workhorse if you can afford it

Worst Features

Better quality leather, better quailty stero, rear a/c vent location is terrible, body armor pure style no true function (go steel), bed lockable w/other locks, cargo tray w/wheels, fix oil consumption/gas consumption, standard backup sensor, less plastic inside...it's only a very expensive truck
