2012 Chevrolet Avalanche: 15/21 mpg
It comes in just one drivetrain configuration, and since that's one of GM's most efficient truck pieces, the Chevy Avalanche does better than most full-sizers on gas.
The EPA rates it at a relatively miserly 15/21 mpg rating. Of course the Avalanche isn't strictly a full-size truck, but against the most efficient, latest Ford F-150s, it almost keeps up--while it bests trucks like the Tundra, Titan and Ram 1500.
Chevrolet hasn't announced any plans to add diesel or hybrid technology to the Avalanche, though both drivetrain options exist within its truck lineup.
In the grander scheme not so green, the Avalanche is good on gas in a big-truck way.
