2008 Chevrolet Avalanche vs. Its Competition

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.

Quick Specs
The 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche is the truck for those who can't decide whether they need a pickup or an SUV.
The Ford F-150 is a solid truck that is due for its 2009 model makeover, but it’s good enough that it may be all the truck you need or want.
The 2008 Nissan Titan is a solid choice for guys who don't want to drive Ford, Chevy, Dodge or Toyota.
