The 2023 Chevrolet Avalanche is a four-door, five- or six-seater pickup truck that shares GM’s long-wheelbase chassis used on the Chevrolet Suburban and Cadillac Escalade EXT. The Chevrolet breaking with a long-standing tradition, the Avalanche was not available as a GMC. The Chevrolet Avalanche 2023 is essentially a cross between two popular body styles, part four-door crew cab pickup, and part full-size SUV. The Chevrolet designers and engineers have placed a 1.7-meter pickup bed under the foundations of the brand’s venerable Suburban SUV, creating a unique truck that combines the best of both.
The Avalanche’s versatile design might make one want to check out the Honda Ridgeline as well, but it lacks the Avalanche’s cargo room and towing capacity. It offers an equally innovative SUV/pickup hybrid design in a more agile, cheaper, and more fuel-efficient package. The Chevrolet Avalanche is a full-size double cab pickup with a removable rear window and folding center door. Three trim levels are available: basic LS, midrange LT, and premium LTZ. The LS features 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, a roof rack, a composite cargo bed, heated mirrors, rear privacy glass, side auxiliary steps, and a removable three-piece bedspread.
