The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
By offering the best of both worlds, the 2009 Chevrolet Avalanche makes choosing between a truck and an SUV a heck of a lot easier. The 2009 Cadillac Escalade stands out in any crowd; it's the only transforming luxury truck/SUV out there.
