For those with multiple needs, there is no need to buy multiple vehicles. The Chevrolet Avalanche Truck offers space for six passengers to ride comfortably with the unique midgate up, or an eight-foot pickup truck style bed with the midgate down.
Suspension is better than average for the size of the truck, meaning an even, smooth ride with good responsiveness.
The 5.3 liter V8 engine provides solid power for fast acceleration.
Steering could be better, and tighter control would be welcome.
Large size makes for tough maneuvering in city traffic, and parallel parking is a tight squeeze.
Side and rear blind spots are quite large, requiring extreme care and attention.
For those that primarily need a basic pickup, the cost of the Chevrolet Avalanche Truck is comparatively high.
