Chevy Avalanche - Chevys SUV-Truck

Chevrolet First introduced the Avalanche Sport pickup for the 2002 Model years. The truck came as a 4 wheel drive but the 2500 also was available with a 2 wheel drive option. Two V8 engines were offered a Vortec 5.3 liter with 290 hp and a 8.1 liter with 340 hp.

Chevrolet markets this vehicle as a SUV/Truck. There is a "MidGate" that can be lowered that increases the size of the truck bed into a full sized pickup truck. This allows the vehicle to be used as either a 5-6 passenger SUV or a Full sized truck taking just a few minutes to change it over.

The 2002 Avalanche came in two trims the 1500 and the 2500. The 2500 also had a "North Face Addition".

For 2007 - 2009 Chevy dropped the 1500 and 2500 designation and offered the following models.

The newer Vortec 5.3 liter engines are designed to also run on E85 ethanol giving a 6 horsepower increase compared to when it is run on gasoline. There was also a transmission change in 2009. The 4 speed automatic transmission of the pre 2009 model years was changed to a 6 speed automatic transmission. 2009 was also the last model year where the 6.0 liter engine (which replaced the earlier 8.1 liter engine) was offered; from 2010 onward there was only the 5.3 liter engine. The LT model is also available with a Z71 Off-Road Suspension Package
