Avalanche...An Ace!

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


The Avalanche is a sharp looking multi-
purpose vehicle combining the plush
ride of a Suburban with the utility
features of an off-road pickup. The
ride and handling is excellent and
extremely quiet. It is loaded with neat
features, several of which I have yet
to figure out. Although it pulls a 12
foot box trailer full of antique
motorcycles quite well, it seems to
shift quite a lot, even in the trailer
mode. This is my second new Chevy
truck, the first was less than
desireable. Quite honestly I bought the
Avalanche because I could not get a
decent price from a competitor. I am
very pleased with the Avalanche and
will probably purchase another.

Best Features

The ability to change from short to long bed capacity, the covered bed, the Onstar system and the many neat little electronic features. This is a great vehicle.

Worst Features

Improve the fuel mileage, the best I can get is 16.5. Lose the "non-skid" mat in the bed, it is so non-skid you can only use the first few feet of the bed, you absolutely cannot push anything toward the front.
