Largely unchanged for 2012 from the previous year, the Chevrolet Avalanche merges attributes of pickup truck and sport utility vehicle. Featuring an open truck bed measuring 45.5 cubic feet in capacity, the 2012 Avalanche offers a unique "Midgate” which allows cargo space to be shared with the rear passenger area. Up to 6 passenger seating is found inside the 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche when rear seats are not needed for cargo. Coming in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels in 2012; the Chevrolet Avalanche comes standard with cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and dual-zone climate control fleet-wide. Universal home remote, audio system with navigation, XM NavTraffic and rear seat entertainment system are available equipment when upgrading to the LT or LTZ models of the 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche. Offered in rear wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, the 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche is equipped with a 320 horsepower, 5.3 liter V-8 engine. Employing Active Fuel Management and FlexFuel capability for running E85 blended gasoline, fuel economy for the 2012 Avalanche averages at 17 miles per gallon. StabiliTrak with traction control, six airbags and tire pressure monitoring system is standard safety equipment found on the 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche.Read more Read less
For 2012, the Avalanche is pretty much the same as in 2011. Twenty-two-inch wheels are available on the LT and LTZ and a new optional stereo is optional on the LT--a satellite radio-capable one that also includes an 80GB hard drive.
Flexible and unique mid-gate arrangement; towing prowess; comfortable interior appointments; ride and handling relative to other trucks
The 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche's design is virtually unique in the market. It attempts to solve both passenger-hauling needs and cargo-hauling needs with a single truck. There's almost nothing else quite like the Avalanche's folding mid-gate in the market-- it allows the bed to be expanded only when needed and have more interior space the rest of the time. Overall, handling and ride quality are a step above what might be expected in a full-size pickup and the cabin has a refined feel with top-notch materials. Towing capacity is an impressive 8,100 pounds.
