Expert Quotes:

LT is generally more desirable

cargo cover is 'difficult to remove'

With virtually no changes for the 2012 model year, the Chevy Avalanche continues to cover a pretty wide set of driving needs with its standard and available features.

With three basic trim levels and some option packages, the Avalanche can venture off-road as easily as it can absorb long-distance trips, with features like standard keyless entry; a power driver seat; power mirrors, locks, and windows; and an AM/FM/CD player with a USB port, steering-wheel audio controls, and MP3 playback. That's for the basic LS model: LT and LTZ trims can be fitted with features like Bluetooth; Bose audio; power-adjustable pedals; ventilated front seats; a navigation system; and remote start.

There's also a Z71 package of recovery hooks, fog lamps, and distinctive trim, which give the Avalanche very good off-road capability.

All Avalanches get the Midgate that expands the pickup bed into the cabin, and all get a three-piece locking cargo cover, nonslip bed mats, and a locking compartment in each rear fender.


Like GM's other big trucks, the Avalanche has a wide range of features, some for off-roading, some for pure luxury.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
