2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4WDReview

I Would Not Drive Anything Else! — All of you Prius driving tree hugging hippies...the only thing your car does better than mine is sip on gas. I'd love to see your car tow a 4000 lb trailer 1500 miles non-stop, go off-roading, haul a 1500 lb load in your trunk, have your engine last as long as 300,000 miles like mine is capable of doing, and just overall be as badass as an Avalanche. The Avalanche can do all of these things with ease. For the amount of cargo I can haul, it'll take at least 4 trips in a Prius...and then guess who's burning more gas!

Pros: The ability to do just about anything and do it well and with ease.  It can do anything a car can do and more...except trips to the store will cost more than in a car.

Cons: Uh the obvious...the gas mileage.  But I can get 20 mpg highway with a light foot.  Also a shorter turning radius and better approach and departure angles for off-roading would be nice.

Seems To Be A Good Truck, But I Haven't Tried It Offroad Yet. — It is a pretty comfortable truck even with the lift. I have never had a truck with wide tires like this and they are nice but hyrdoplane in rain and snow.

Pros: Comfortable

Cons: I have had some problems with the 4x4.

The Most Versatile And Reliable Vehicle — The Chevy Avalanche has to be one of the best vehicles that GM has rolled off the assembly line. This truck has very comfortable seating of up to 5. The Avalanche also has a nice bed to haul your quad, dirtbikes, or even mulch. Hauling is important, but the vehicle is a BEAST hauling. The Chevy Avalanche will tow pretty much anything to hook up to it. Off road, this truck is a pure bread BEAST. Not only is it a performer, but it has awesome looks, and tons of accessories you can add to make it meet your standards.

Owner for 4 years, 10 months

Miles Driven per Year:16,000

Pros: Pretty much everything

Cons: I can't think of one thing i hate about this vehicle

Very Nice Truck — We bought this truck with 5000 miles on it. It has been extremely versatile and dependable. We like it so much we bought a 2010 four wheel drive with the ltz package. This will be an excellent car for someone who does not want to pay new car prices.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: clean low mileage

Cons: couple of minor scratches

I saved my avalanche at a savlage auction, brought it home and repaired it. I used to think it was an impractical vehicle compaired to the F150 i used to drive, but i couldnt be any more wrong. Its an awesome family car that has great pickup and has helped so many friends move with one trip. The removable back window and midgate allows me to carry an unbelievable amount of cargo and when im done i can carry 6 people. The Z66 package gives an impeccably smooth ride and the 5.3L gives me 20mpg with my light foot. 9/10 would recommend.

"The agressive styling of the avalanche ages well from the soft box design of the previous generations"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2001 Ford F-150 XLT Crew Cab 4WD SB worse.
"The midgate and removable rear window gives the avalanche clear dominance in the cargo category"
Value Ranked 2001 Ford F-150 XLT Crew Cab 4WD SB worse.
"The avalanche is easy to maintain yourself and there are heap quality aftermarket parts"
Would Buy Ranked 2001 Ford F-150 XLT Crew Cab 4WD SB worse.
"The avalanche has more power, better fuel economy, and is far more useful for towing/hauling while having better style "
