The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The showpiece of the 2012 Chevy Avalanche is the clever midgate, but it's also easy to drive, and has lots of useful storage hidden inside and out. Efficient and burly, the 2012 Ford F-150 shares the lead in full-size trucks thanks to extreme capability and extreme high-tech features.
