2010 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Overview

Based on the full-size Chevrolet Suburban SUV platform, the versatile 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche is essentially a full-size SUV with a truck bed, thereby combining the comfort and utility of an SUV with the cargo and towing capability of a pickup truck.

Nine years after its 2002 debut, the 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche is available in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels, two- and four-wheel-drive configurations, and is powered by a respectable 320-horsepower, 5.3-liter flex-fuel V-8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 6.0-liter V-8 has been discontinued for 2010. EPA estimated fuel economy ratings are 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. With a maximum capacity of 8,100 pounds, the Avalanche can certainly tow like a full-size pickup.

Facing competition from Nissan Titan, Honda Ridgeline, Toyota Tundra, Ford F-150 and Dodge Ram, the Chevrolet Avalanche offers a midgate that folds the second-row seat and opens up an eight-foot cargo floor. The midgate can also be removed so you can get some fresh air while you cruise down the highway. Lockable side-mounted storage in the cargo bed, a locking tailgate and cargo cover provide additional secured storage options. A standard 3.08:1 rear axle reduces engine speed during cruising to improve fuel economy and a new USB port allows MP3 compatibility.

The 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche sits on standard 17-inch wheels with available massive, 22-inch chrome wheels and features power running boards on LTZ models. Inside, the Avalanche offers dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable pedals, remote vehicle start and a heavy-duty rear-locking differential. Additional convenience and luxury features include a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, touch-screen navigation and titanium or cashmere interiors (select models only).

The 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche is loaded with standard safety technologies, including roof-mounted side curtain airbags with rollover protection, front seat belt pretensioners, an electronic stability system with rollover mitigation technology, seat-mounted side airbags for front occupants and OnStar with GM Advanced Crash Response. A handful of options include ultrasonic rear parking assist and a rearview camera to minimize blind spots while you’re backing up.

Combining the best attributes of a full-size SUV and a pickup, the 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche offers cargo-carrying versatility, a powerful standard V-8 engine and tons of class-leading safety technologies.

Sorry... the 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 is no longer being sold as new.
