    2009 Chevrolet Avalanche Review
    says:

    My only complaint with this truck is trying to park it in the DC Metro Area. Anything bigger than a Pilot, X5, Explorer, etc. feels huge in these parking spots. Power is a big improvement over my last v6 SUV, but a Dodge Ram felt like it had more power from a drivers perspective. Decent gas mileage for a family vehicle with plenty of room for hauling mulch, plywood, 2x4s and other DIY project material for around the house.
    Front Seats Ranked 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 worse.
    "I have a surgically repaired lower spine. The front seat of my Chevy Avalanche is one of the more comfortable seats I have driven in since my surgery. Ride height is good. Seat is power-adjustable, so I can fine-tune it depending on how my back, hips & left leg feel that day / trip."
    Would Buy Ranked 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 worse.
    "The Rams size, ride height and power were all tremendous. There was a major blind-spot on the Rams driver side: I saw a Lexus RX350 (SUV) in my rear mirror, then he passed me on my left. Somewhere between the rear wheel and my shoulder, the RX350 disappeared in my rear & side mirrors. Granted, Ive lost sight of small sedans / cars in the Avalanche, too. Between the Chevys front seat, IFS and solid body, I could not feel the vibrations from the road. In other trucks, including Tundra, F-150 and Ram, the vibrations made me feel nauseous (by no means criticizing those other trucks; this is due to an issue with my surgically repaired lower back)."

    Great Luxury Suv — a lot of lockable storage, great in the winter driving on the snow terrible fuel economy even with the variable valve timing 5.3 engine very nice comfortable ride, great for taking trips on highway and could never do without the factory navigation

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: a lot of lockable storage, great in the winter driving on the snow

    Cons: terrible fuel economy even with the variable valve timing 5.3 engine

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 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.

    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.

    Pros: Love the ride for a truck.

    Cons: The only drawback in the gas milage in city can be challenging.

    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!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The hybrid truck bed.

    Cons: None.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Ride, looks, utility

    Cons: Needs more power

    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..
