The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche flexes its midsection to show off a versatile Midgate, but you'll notice its luxe features and nicely trimmed cabin, too. The 2011 Ram 1500 vies with the latest Ford F-150 as the most desirable full-size pickup truck you can buy.
