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.

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.
