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.
