Fun to Drive @ 20.1 MPG
By David R on


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


Owned a Ford F-150 for 10 years, still have it, still use it, still a great truck. I’ve owned the '05 Avalanche LT for one year now. I bought the truck because I liked the style and every Avalanche owner I spoke to was passionate about how much fun it was to drive. This vehicle is easy to handle with great control, power, and smooth ride. Every truck owners dream, including great gas mileage; city 19 hwy 24, I average 20.1mpg. Best investment I’ve made in a long time. Now all I need is to find an E85 fuel station.

Best Features

The ride! Sun roof, heated seats, and chrome running boards all come in handy.

Worst Features

Poor visibility. I added rear safety sensors. There is a good sized dead spot right behind the vehicle. Rear safety sensors and rear video camera should be required on this vehicle. Back seats are a bit stiff for adults, would recommend GM improve lumbar support in rear seat.
