Best vehicle I've ever owned. PERIOD! I've owned a lot of vehicles in my 65 years. It does everything well! Very comfortable 4 door vehicle, has towing package with a 320 HP engine, 4WD, AND, can carry 10 to 12' long material inside the vehicle and have everything enclosed within the vehicle. GM really screwed up by not making it anymore!


Best Truck Ever

The versatility is amazing. My father owns one with 145K and it never left him sitting. It rides better than a standard 1500 because it’s on a suburban frame. There has never been a job that is has not been able to handle. If you flip down the bed you will be stunned how much you can fit. I bought one and have had the same reliability and versatility.


The best reliable SUV that General Motors designed

The design on the Chevrolet Avalanche is the best that General Motors made. I owned two 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche's Z71 and now just bought a 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche LTZ. Love this Truck/SUV. This is the best used truck still, and I am giving the Avalanche 5 stars.


Very nice truck

This vehicle is quite nice and rides very well. Has a real good stereo system and is the LTZ so it is loaded. The mid gate is different.


Very reliable vehicle

This suv is best vehicle i ever purchased it good on gas fits my family's need great interior outside exterior is wonderful does. Great on the snow and ice


Best vehicle I’ve owned

I’ve towed some big loads with mine without any bit of trouble it’s got the torque I love it and it’s very dependable and I love the seat warmers


Why did they stop making these???

My 3rd. Had my last two for 6 and 11 years, respectively. Love 'em. Wish they never stopped making them. Just dont buy one from Hendrick of Duluth.


This is one of the nicest vehicles I?ve owned.

So far I love this vehicle. I have had no problems at all. The avalanche is a vehicle I have always favored. Out of the three I?ve owned this is by far the best.


Best vehicle i've ever owned!

I personally love the way my avalanche was styled, it drive so comfortable it was like floating on air, good amount of power, 4x4, spacious, awesome bed, super reliable and cheap to maintain, gas was only expense. This is the perfect vehicle for everything in life and you'll realize it when/if you own it.


Fits my needs perfectly.

Comfortable, safe, with lots of flexibility. I seldom carry extended cargo, but the midgate design allows a shorter profile for ease in parking and maneuvering with the capability to carry longer loads when required. Huge towing capacity allows me to pull large boat with ease. Lots of storage. It is the total package. Like an SUV, but can carry a refrigerator upright. Better gas mileage would be nice, but 15/21 is the price one pays for all this capability.
