2008 Chevrolet Avalanche vs. Its Competition

2008 Chevrolet Avalanche 2WD Crew Cab 130" LTZ Rear Exterior View
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

When you look at this list of competitors, they are the usual suspects one would find when comparing only pickups.

The 2008 Chevy Avalanche functions well as a pickup and offers towing capabilities that are more than competitive with any of these rivals.

What the Avalanche offers over its challengers is a combination of utility and comfort thanks to its 8-foot bed and comfortable seating for five.

All the others are similar full-size trucks with no midgate, but a choice of engines, transmissions, box lengths, and drivetrains.
