One great SUT. Nothing better anywhere.
By ReelLove on


2009 Chevrolet Avalanche LT2 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


2009 is my 3rd Avalanche (LT2-Z71). Ride is stiffer than the '05 Z71. If you do not go off road think 2x @ Z71 pkg. Much quieter than '05. Lots of leg room everywhere. This vehicle feels bigger than the 05. Improved gas mileage & performance from '05. Interior redesign is luxurious but I miss being able to put my hat on the dashboard and it staying put. Handling is very good, with little to no body roll. This is still the greatest, most versatile vehicle on the road today. I have 5 cars, & the Avalanche is always my 1st choice to drive. Quality is first class, cabin is A-#1, durability is never an issue. If you are looking for a large vehicle, put this one on the top of your list.

Best Features

Back up camera, remote start, Bose stereo, large side mirrors, extremely quiet cabin, luxury appointments & air bags everywhere, mid-gate, flexibility, auto-everything, great appearance. This is one solid SUT. Fun to drive. The Avalanche does everything & do it very well. Wipers can now remain up.

Worst Features

Different logic for steering wheel stereo remote control buttons. Bring back: ash tray cup (coin storage), temp & direction display on rear view mirror, power lumbar support, separate switch for bed lights, cruise control buttons on turn stalk. Step on rear bumper. Better logic on navigation system.
