A long Time Honda Man tries a Chevy
By Rick on


2009 Chevrolet Avalanche LTZ 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


This is the first Chevy I have purchased in nearly 30 years as I am a die hard Honda fan. It was time to buy a new truck and it came down to the Ridgeline and the Avalanche and I stepped out on a limb and bought the Avalanche. My honest opinion is the Avalanche wins from an exterior appeal and available 'bells and whistles" standpoint but the Honda wins on the interior quality, cargo space and clearly thought through and efficient space utilization. It is like the Chevy folks focused on what the truck looks like going down the road and curb appeal and the Honda folks focused on the interior " living quarters" area. Avalanche is a great vehicle but needs a little interior help!

Best Features

All the "Bells and Whistles", smooth ride, mid-gate design, curb appeal and great balance between family vehicle and functional utility truck when needed.

Worst Features

Navigation stinks when compared to the Honda navigation system both in visual appeal as well as route guidance capability A front bumper audible alarm would make sense. Fuel economy could be better. A padded non plastic dashboard A larger glove box with more storage on the interior
