2011 Chevy Avalanche LS Crew Cab Truck

2011 Chevrolet Avalanche Review

(2 Stars)  Fashion SUV out of fashion

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The newest model of Chevrolet Avalanche claims the title for "#1 Sports Utility Trucks" out of 12 competing models. This is a very bold statement and the Avalanche can definitely stand up to its name as the best in class. The history of building very rugged heavy duty trucks runs very deep with Chevy and they are still bringing a huge selection of durable utility vehicles to the public after all these years.

The Avalanche has been available for 5 years now and its unique design and high level of flexibility has made it a customer favorite when it comes to the full line of trucks from Chevrolet. One feature that makes this utility vehicle stand out from standard trucks is the mid-gate that allows its owner to fold down the wall between the passenger area and the bed of the truck. This instantly opens up a huge area to store extra long or large objects that would not otherwise fit. The bed of this pickup also offers some lockable storage compartments that are built in. This is another way that Chevrolet has built upon the concept of a standard truck.
