2011 Chevrolet Avalanche: 15/21 mpg
For its size and capabilities, the 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche is one of the more miserly big pickup trucks.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the latest 'Lanche earns a competitive 15/21 mpg rating. The latest F-150s can score a bit better on the highway side, when outfitted with roughly competitive powertrains, but the Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra both lag behind the Avalanche, even in short-bed versions.Chevrolet hasn't announced any plans to add diesel or hybrid technology to the Avalanche, though both drivetrain options exist within its truck lineup.
A lighter appetite for fuel makes the 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche a little greener than its competition.
