Very comfortable. Great style. Good power. Roomy. Relatively economical fuel mileage for the size and weight. Tows well. Feel very safe when driving

Cons

I really don't have any negatives.

Inferno Orange Avalanche — Great all around suv. Go anywhere in style with the convenience of a small pickup truck bed. The DVDs keep the kids quiet and the navigational gps gets you to your destination with ease. I don't feel like I'm driving a large vehicle on the road.

The Avalanche — This has hands done been myfavorite truck that I have had. The ride and room in the truck are second to none. I would recommend this truck to anyone looking for a high end riding truck with great towing capacity.

The Truck Review — Ive done this review twice already so I'm not sure why it keeps asking for another. Bottomline, this truck is loads of fun. Forjust about any occasion. You have the comfort if a large cabin or truck bed if you need to do any work-and you can look good in it while doing the work!

Very Good — Factory rotors not enough for 22" wheels. Needs some technical upgrades, better navigation, iPhone integration, and more power. It is fun to drive. Gets a lot of attention.My second one, seats tend to wear, door armrests not comfortable. My 2006 had more small storage spaces than the 2009. 6.2L should be option. Friggin black plastic trim on bed fades. Hard to keep up.

Love This Thing.... — Build Quality: So far so good... Car Comparisons: The GMC Denali, Chevy Silverado, and the Dodge 2500. It kinda a little of the best from each... Performance: Definitely not a real strong handler but I figured that being it sits on 20's. No real complaints. More About My Car: It get crap for gas mileage...only real issue with it..

Awsome — The build of it is going to be kick ass! The colour will be a royal sparkling blue like the old avalanche we use to own. Its going to have On Star, Bush bar, Sun roof, Black leather seats, AC, a loud speaker system so i can crank my music, AND its going to smell SOOOOOO good just because im going to have coconut air freshners in it that smell so good.
