2012 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Overview

With the versatility of an SUV and the capability of a truck, the stylish and rugged 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche is for those who want it all.

Available in three trims: LS, LT and LTZ, the Chevy Avalanche receives some impressive updates for the 2012 model year. The LT trim now has heated seats, while the LTZ features a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel and blind spot warning system. A 30 GB hard drive, navigation system, seven-inch touch-screen and USB port is available. Those who tow boats and other big items will like that electronic trailer-sway control and hill start assist are part of the standard electronic stability control system. The Avalanche competes with the Dodge Ram, Ford-F150, Honda Ridgeline and Toyota Tundra.

A 320-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 produces 335 pounds-feet of torque for heavy-duty-esque towing. The 2012 Avalanche has a standard six-speed automatic transmission and power is sent through the rear wheels. Four-wheel-drive adds extra traction and handling, and the Avalanche can tow up to 8,100 pounds when properly equipped. The Avalanche gets an EPA-estimated 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, and has a 650-mile range on a single tank of gas. The ZR1 Off-Road Package includes monotube shock absorbers and a high-capacity air cleaner for better handling and performance.

You will immediately notice that the Chevy Avalanche is different than most trucks because of its half-SUV, half-truck appearance and a segment-exclusive midgate. You can transform the Avalanche from a five or six-passenger SUV to a full-size pickup truck depending on your needs. Basically, the midgate separates the cargo bed from the interior. When configured as a truck, the Avalanche’s cargo box has a lockable tailgate, rigid tonneau cover and top storage box. You can fit 4’ x 8’ objects and 45.5 cubic feet of overall space.

Automatic headlights, a roof rack, 17-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, Bluetooth connectivity, six-way power front seats, an auxiliary input jack and a iPod/USB interface are all standard. If you need more bells and whistles, remote ignition, power adjustable pedals, heated front seats, a seven-speaker Bose sound system, a navigation system, eight-way power seats, leather upholstery and retractable side steps are just some of the options.

Safety features in the 2012 Chevy Avalanche include side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags, all-disc antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors.

If you’re looking for a vehicle with the ultimate in flexibility, look no farther than the 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche.
