Overall:

The back seat folds down to create a 10 long by 50 wide when needed and still have 4 full sized doors. Overall design is far better that any pick-up configuration.

2012 Chevrolet Avalanche LT 4WD Review
ej504 says:
Not much difference in body style, looks and comfort between the 2012 and the 2013. The 4WD vehicle was a bit harder to steer and turn. If I lived in an area where 4WD would really be a necessity, I probably would have chosen a 2012 or 2013 4WD vehicle. Where I live, not usually a need for 4WD. LTZ model for both years have added comfort benefits but not necessarily worth the additional cost for a voice activated navigation system if one has a smartphone with this capability or rear seat DVD video if you already own a portable DVD player. Since I dont plan on traveling in rough terrain, off-road package was not important to me and I did not particularly like the higher frame required for off-road driving. I primarily looked at Chevy Dealerships that had Avalanches for sale that were Certified Pre-Owned by Chevrolet. Believe these vehicles have been thoroughly checked out and service records are available. Love my 2013 Avalanche 2013 LT; but, Ive only owned for a few days. Have had it checked out by 2 exceptional mechanics who both tell me it is an excellent vehicle that should retain value since its no longer manufactured.

  • Power
  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats
  • Back Seats
  • Cargo Capacity
  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Power Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition RWD better.
"Did not notice a difference in power. Each vehicle accelerated smoothly and quickly when needed on the Interstate."
Handling Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition RWD better.
"I dont know if it was the fact the 2012 was a 4WD vehicle, an alignment problem or what; but the 2013 without 4WD was definitely a smoother handling vehicle."
Looks/Style Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition RWD better.
"Vehicles are almost identical in style and looks. The 4WD vehicle sits a bit higher on its frame; but, both had 20 wheel base; but the 4WD drive is higher on its base to account for 4WD and off-road driving. This was not an important factor for me and I did not particularly like the higher frame."
Front Seats Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition RWD better.
"Cant say that there was any difference in the front seats since I only looked at vehicles that had heated and/or cooled front seats. Both were quite comfortable. I only looked at vehicles with leather seats. Both had manual control for seat adjustment and lumbar adjustments. Both were quite comfortable."
Back Seats Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition RWD better.
"Never been in the back seats but did not observe any obvious difference between the two models."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition RWD better.
"Dont think there is any difference in cargo capacity. Both seem to have the same towing capacity in normal driving mode, and each has the same passenger capacity."
Family Car Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition RWD better.
"The 4WD vehicle was a bit more difficult to steer, particularly when turning corners. The 2013 LT model was a smoother drive. Safety features seem to be equal in both vehicles. If I had a serious need for 4WD, I probably would have selected the 2012 4WD vehicle."
Value Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition RWD better.
"The extremely low mileage on the vehicle I purchased. Vehicle seems to have been very well cared for. Little use of truck bed, no accidents reported, exterior only has a few minor scratches."
Would Buy Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition RWD better.
"2013 is the last year Chevrolet manufactured the Avalanche. The vehicle I purchased has had a single owner before me. The vehicle is in excellent condition with below average mileage. This vehicle drives like an SUV but has a truck bed that looks almost unused. The 2012 models Ive viewed are also excellent vehicles but its hard to find either a 2012 or 2013 model with less than 35,000 miles. If I really needed 4WD I probably would have purchased the 2012 model; but, 4WD was not critical to me and the cost and low mileage of the 2013 model along with its excellent condition sold me."

Overall:

Exceptional — This is my 2nd Avalanche. Always a pleasure to drive. Ride, Braking, Handling are much better than older models. Drives like a car giving all passengers plenty of leg and head room. I made a 3 trips to Cincinnati and back in the same day never felt run down after driving 12 hours. The hard covers on the bed make a secure cargo area when the vehicel is locked.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very quiet and comfortable to drive.  The stereo is awsome.  Driving the Avalanche makes you feel very safe.  Eye catching looks.

Cons: None.

Clear; No Liens — It looks good, runs good, comfortable ride. Grandkids were comfortable and had cup holders they can reach for their drinks. Stops well and straight. Power seats have many positions; Sound system is great. Large storage between front seats. Power mirrors with the signals and curb tilt are nice to have.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth, handles well, roomy, love the versatility of open bed or closed bed to lockup valuables where no one can see them;  Pretty truck; dual power seats are comfortable for both driver and passenger.  Nice vehicle

Cons: Fuel economy
