Handling Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition 4WD worse.
"Even though the EXT is AWD it doesn’t feel like it when you drive it. The magnetic ride control makes the EXT a great handling and very responsive vehicle."
Back Seats Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition 4WD worse.
"The back seats are very similar but the Cadillac Escalade Ext quality is better."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition 4WD worse.
"I believe that the cargo capacity is the same for both vehicles. The survey did not offer the option to choose that."
Value Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition 4WD better.
"From the research that I have done, I bought a 2013 Escalade Ext because I wanted it not for its resale value. The Ext does give you great value for its quality but it has terrible resale value."
Would Buy Ranked 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche LT Black Diamond Edition 4WD worse.
"I bought a 2013 Cadillac Escalade Ext for its quality, styling, performance and its comfortable ride although it doesn’t feel like a normal Cadillac it is an SUV."
