2005 Chevrolet Avalanche Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 16 reviews
The Chevy Avalanche pickup-SUV got touch screen navigation, some minor exterior enhancements, and radio controls in the steering wheel for the 2005 model year. The Avalanche now comes in 8 trims divided into two groups: LS and LT. Of the 8, 3 have RWD and 5 have AWD. You'll have your pick between a 5.3 L, 295 hp V8 or an 8.1 L, 325 hp V8 powertrain.
All trims have 4 doors and seat 6. On average, expect 15 mpg in the city and 20 on the highway. Max towing capacity ranges from around 8,000 lbs. to 12,000 lbs. Passenger capacity reaches 120.2 cubic feet.
Overall, the powerful V8 engines, towing capacity, and solid handling get props from reviewers. However, compared to other pickups, the Avalanche could use more engine choices and better steering. In any event, the popular crossover gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to mixing an SUV and a pickup truck.
