    Great Vehicle — Loved this vehicle. Reliable and roomy. Also drove great as in it felt like you were driving on pillows when on the road or even when you drive over bumps in the road. Gas mileage was my only complaints as it only got around 15 in the City. It did OK on the Highway at around 19. It has a huge gas tank (32 gallons) so it was expensive to fill up when gas prices were high. Overall excellent vehicle and I recommend buying one if you have the chance.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Rides Great, roomy, safe.

    Cons: Gas Mileage

    All In One — I like the fact that I had an suv and pick up truck all in one. I'm from the south and everyone in the south needs a truck. With the Avalanche you have that and more. You can't go wrong

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The Chevy Avalanche is a nice car. It's a Chevy what more needs to be said?

    Cons: I'm a single man and that's just too much car.

    Sweet Ride — 2nd Avalanche we have owned. We liked our 2003 so much that we had to get another. We upgraded to one with most of the toys. The active fuel management system isn't all it's cracked up to be. The 20" wheel option really let's it handle the road a lot better than a normal 4X4. The covered cargo area is also nice when the using it to haul items in foul weather.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Wonderful Ride, Beautiful Interior

    Cons: Gas mileage could use a little help

    Perfect For Our Family — We bought the LTZ 4X4 with the help of GM incentives. Outstanding truck that rides silky smooth and aims to make long road trips a joy. It's sure footed on and off road, enough power to show off or keep in control, smooth shifting, solid brakes. Hauls and tows stuff while passengers ride in luxury up front. Takes flexfuel as well as regular gas. A truck for all seasons. We love our Avalanche.

    Pros: comfort, safety, handling, versatility

    Cons: mileage is comparable to Ridgeline

    Aside From Gas, This Is A Great Do All Auto — If you need a do it all truck/auto this is for you. At first I found the fuel mileage to be a bit bad, but that was brfore I took out the Honda Ridgeline, I got about 22MPG in this, but the Ridgeline (also known here as the Knock-off) avg 18MPG. This truck had a full 4x4 system, menaing unlike the ridgeline I can go int 4x4 low, The Avalanche also out tows/hauls the honda also, now some will say that this truck and the knock-off are in two different catagorys, but according the the Honda rep, it can compete with it!!! I don't understand that but he was the one to say it. Anyway, I found this to handle well for its size and the few hours That I had it, I was comfortable and it truck accerated great. If it needed a truck I can haul the family around as well as tow/haul a payload this would be the one for me. There are two downfalls of this truck for me, I cant tow a 5th wheel and Mileage, but with that being said the Avalanche still got better mileage than the Ridgeline (Honda Knock-off).

    Owner for 0 years, 0 months

    Miles Driven per Year:0

    Pros: This is a do-it-all truck.

    Cons: Not a good daily driver, (mileage but better than the Ridgeline)

    2008 Chevy Avalance — Alright so this is one of the biggest things I really want... but it'll never happen. Power, looks, handling, seating, and cargo are the best perks for this truck to have. I think the style is very different compared to the older Avalanche''s but overall its got that modern touch to it instead of the cubed look to it. Fuel is and will be your worse enemy, it'll cost you an easy $75 just to fill it up and mileage isn't that grand. Cargo, actually has alot of space for such a large SUV but considering the seats are able to fold, it actually gives you an extra 3 to 5 feet of room. Price is harsh... and I mean harsh.. a new one will run you an upwards 50 grand, depending on options.. the one I drove was $56,990 (with all options)

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great style, great cargo

    Cons: Poor gas mileage, Price is way to expensive for such a lower end model.

    Front Seats Ranked 2008 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew 4WD worse.
    "The bucket seats in the Avalanche compared to the F-150 are a world of a difference. The Avalanche definitely sits higher, and the padding is absolutely perfect for comfortability! The F-150 has a very weird feel for a lack of a better term, the seats are normally not as delicate as the Avalanche. I mean yeah, a truck is meant to be a more masculine feel but if Im driving something everyday it has to be good for sitting in you know?"
    Cargo Capacity Ranked 2008 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew 4WD worse.
    "The Avalanche has a Wide-Style Cabin that sits wider than an F-150. The cab in the F-150 is very BUSY, Ford tries to do too much with this. The Avalanche Seats in the Rear have a higher up stature like the front, and the rear cabin is further back than it is in the F-150s. We sold an LTZ Avalanche a little while back and the children of the family who bought it were all under the seats sprawled out like it was its own play area. The F-150 has a stubbier cabin and doesnt allow you to feel as spread out like the Avalanche does."
