No, the LTZ doesn't stand for Lots and Lots of standard features, but it could. The top end of its full-size pickup lineup, Chevrolet's 2008 Avalanche LTZ adds performance enhancements, including an automatic adaptive suspension, rear locking differential, and automatic rear load-leveling, to accommodate different driving situations. The flex-fuel 5.3-liter, 320-hp V8 and 4-speed automatic transmission are standard, with the option to add a 6.0-liter, 366-hp V8. Towing capacity is 8,200 pounds with the standard tow hitch, and fuel economy averages around 14/20 mpg.
The 2008 Avalanche LTZ holds 45 cubic feet in its 5-foot bed. Tiedowns, a power outlet, lockbox, and hard cover are standard, as is a roof rack to supplement storage. The midgate wall and window can be removed and the rear seats folded down to produce an 8-foot bed, but this exposes front passengers to the elements. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, stability control, rollover sensors, and dual front and side impact airbags are standard. Other safety features include folding mirrors, a rearview camera and backup sensors, a tire monitor for the standard 20-inch wheels with all-season tires, a first aid kit, OnStar, automatic headlights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rain-sensing wipers, and foglights.
As for luxury, 10-way power front seats with power lumbar and memory settings, heated seats, leather upholstery, full power features, remote start, remote entry, a garage opener, dual-zone climate control, front and rear audio controls for the 6-CD changer/MP3 player, and satellite radio should do the trick. Also included are cruise control, intermittent wipers, a security system, a trip computer, eight cupholders, several storage consoles, power outlets in the cabin and bed, and leather and wood trim. A DVD player, navigation system, and tilt sunroof are available options.
