The Chevrolet Avalanche is a four-door, five or six passenger sport utility truck. Similar in design to the GM’s long-wheelbase chassis used on the Chevrolet Suburban and Cadillac Escalade EXT. Unlike the typical pickup truck, the open bed of the Avalanche opens to the back seat area through a folding panel and a removable rear window.

2001–2006 First Generation

The Avalanche was launched in 2001 as a 2002 model on the GMT800 platform. 2003 models featured a darker cladding. Avalanche was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award and was Motor Trend magazine’s Truck of the Year for 2002.

There are two engine choices:

A Vortec 5.3 Liter V8 producing 290 hp (216 kW), for the half-ton 1500 series;

A Vortec 8.1 Liter V8 producing 340 hp (253 kW), for the three-quarter-ton 2500 series; drive train is rear-wheel drive or available with selectable high/low four-wheel drive. These are readily available to buy used Avalance engines.

The Avalanche was originally marketed as being able to “change from a pickup to an SUV”. This was made possible by a plastic cover and an exclusive “midgate” which could open and close. The midgate was a divider behind the second row of seats that could be folded down, with the seats, to create a longer bed area, or folded up to make a larger cab area. A similar midgate was found on the Cadillac Escalade EXT, Hummer H2 SUT and the GMC Envoy XUV.

2007–2013 Second Generation

The GMT900 Avalanche was introduced in March 2006. A special Z71 package was offered for the second generation Avalanche. Later models introduced another version of the Vortec 5.3-liter V8 as the engine is now capable of running on E85 ethanol. When the 5.3 is running on normal gasoline, it produces 320 horsepower (240 kW) and 335 pound-feet (454 N·m) of torque whereas its output rises to 326 horsepower (243 kW) and 348 pound-feet (472 N·m) of torque on E85, up from 310 horsepower (230 kW) and 335 pound-feet (454 N·m) in 2009. For the 2010 model year, the 6.0-liter was dropped from the Avalanche lineup which left the 5.3 V8 as the only engine available for the truck. In its final year, the 6.0-liter produced 366 horsepower (273 kW) and 376 pound-feet (510 N·m) of torque.
