The 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche is the Ultimate Utility Vehicle. Part Truck, Part SUV, All Chevrolet. The Chevrolet Avalanche continues to offer consumers an alternative to the traditional Truck Experience. With the ride quailty and handling ability of a Full-Size SUV, but the hauling capability, and versatility of a Truck, the Avalanche offers consumers the option of both vehicle types in one package. The Avalanche is also the Consumers Reports Top Pickup for 2011.

What does the Automotive Press Have to Say About it? "A blend of full-size pickup and SUV, the Avalanche delivers exceptional
versatility. Unique to GM, the innovative Midgate feature provides a
pass-through between the rear cabin and the short cargo box, increasing
capacity. It drives like a Suburban, and it's not afraid of hard work." -Car & Driver
"Shopping for a pickup truck primarily for passenger use? Check out the
Avalanche. It offers a special blend of useful passenger accommodations,
expandable cargo room, big-truck muscle, and friendly road manners." -Consumer Guide
"On good roads the suspension absorbs most imperfections, delivering an almost
cushiony ride but not at the expense of control or security, and the Avalanche
takes curves with a high level of stability." -Kelley Blue Book
"The Avalanche doesn't mind flaunting its split personality. It's neither an SUV
nor a pickup -- it's both. It has the bold but familiar front-end styling found
on Chevy's truck-based products. Setting the Avalanche apart are distinctive
sails that connect the cab to the bed and emphasize the smooth roofline and
exterior length." -Cars.com "Avalanche's versatile cargo bed has locking storage compartments on its
outside, plus washable plastic walls and a rubber floormat. The hard tonneau and
locking tailgate make it essentially a deep, 40-cubic-foot trunk." -Consumer Guide
"Inside, however, the Avalanche is all Suburban with an upscale dashboard and
plenty of available luxury conveniences." -Left Lane News Chevrolet Avalanche Key Features
