The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The clever, useful Chevy Avalanche takes a final bow largely unchanged; we like the idea, but not enough truck buyers were into its short bed or its fold-down midgate. The 2013 Ram 1500 leads full-size trucks in interior quality, gas mileage, and handling; it adds infotainment to the list this year, but we're mixed on its new air suspension, and towing capacity is down.
