Have you ever marveled at the convenience of an SUV, while at the same time wanting the capabilities of a pickup truck? Many people do, which is why Chevrolet created the groundbreaking Chevrolet Avalanche, a vehicle that offers the best of both worlds. Keep reading to find out more about what you can expect from the brand new Chevrolet Avalanche.
Innovative Midgate Design
The biggest feature that makes the Chevrolet Avalanche stand out from both SUVs and trucks is its midgate setup that allows the vehicle to effortlessly convert between the two body styles. All you have to do is fold the rear seats forward and open the two-piece midgate to turn it from an SUV into a pickup with an impressive eight-foot load floor.
Tons of Cargo Room
With the lockable three-piece removable hard cargo cover, you’ll have the flexibility of choosing whether to keep things safe and secure just like in an SUV, or fitting large items in the back like ATVs or motorcycles. In terms of sheer volume, the cargo area fits up to 45.5 cubic feet, making it the largest trunk on the market.
Able to fit up to six passengers with the optional front bench seat, or five passengers with the front bucket seats that come standard, the Chevrolet Avalanche offers passenger capacity you simply can’t get from a typical pickup. But it also offers the kind of ride quality and handling that you would expect from an SUV. The Avalanche also boasts a particularly tight turning radius, which allows you to swing into parking spaces and make U-turns with ease.
If you are looking to bring a boat or a trailer with you on your next family vacation, the 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche is a solid investment. With its standard 5.3L 320-horsepower/335 pound-feet of torque V8, a Chevy Avalanche can tow up to 8,100 pounds.
