Chevrolet Avalanche Summary

Versatile 4x4 trucks that also have spacious interiors are hard to find, but Chevrolet manages to achieve this with the Avalanche. The last model was produced in 2013, but many are still on the road today. With an all-wheel drive option and standard 5.3 L V8 engine, the Avalanche’s fuel consumption is relatively high, but the vehicle is powerful. A 6 L V8 is also available for 2009+ models for those needing their truck to go further. Despite its power, the Avalanche is easy to handle and great for both on- and off-road driving.
