It’s the SUV of pickups. Or the pickup of SUVs. Whichever way you look at it, Avalanche is the two-in-one Chevy truck that combines the attributes of a very capable full-size pickup with that of a well-appointed SUV – all in one Ultimate Utility Vehicle. Its credentials are impeccable: with a dependable 320 horsepower VortecTM V8 engine that features fuel-saving iActive Fuel Management® technology, and a pickup box that can extend to more than 8 feet (2,438 mm) in length with the tailgate up, while supporting a substantial 634 kg (1,397 lb) maximum payload capacity. The key to its ability to play dual roles is its innovative MidgateTM. It forms the rear wall of the SUV cabin, and then folds down to extend the pickup box – all in a matter of seconds. Double up – with the 2013 Chevy Avalanche.
