About the Chevy Avalanche 1500

Vehicle Summary

The Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 is a unique entry into the full-size truck world. Based on the same chassis as the Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL, the extended wheelbase Avalanche was produced from the 2002 through 2013 model years. The first generation (2002–2006) pioneered the "midgate" feature, which was a pass-through between the pick-up bed and the interior of the truck. 

All first-generation Avalanche 1500 models come with a standard 5.3L V8 engine. Keep an eye out for the Z71 off-road package, which upgraded just about all of the 2002–2006 Avalanche's suspension elements for off-road duty. 

The redesigned second-generation Avalanche debuted in 2007 and continued until the vehicle went out of production in 2013. Built on an updated GM platform, it is easily distinguishable from the first generation with a new front end design and lack of body cladding on the side. It also featured a new 5.3L V8, with an optional 6.0L V8 offered between the 2007 and 2009 model years. 

Chevrolet offered a new Z71 off-road package for the second generation, featuring unique suspension tuning, new automatic locking rear differential, aluminum under-body skid plates, as well as larger wheel flares, and special badges, wheels, and tires!

Great car got a great deal

Lots of room. Sport vehicle.

- Frank ortega, 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500

Small Glitch but still a GreatCar

We are very happy with our Avalanche. It provides all the creature comforts we were looking for with the cargo space we wanted. It drives well and I am getting usedo the size. One problem has just poped up. The driver side power mirror has a problem. It will not power up or down. Just happened 2 days after the 30 day warranty expired. Not a major issue but an annoyance so soon after purchasing the car.
