Pricing announced for 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche, the industry’s most flexible utility vehicle
The 2007 four-wheel drive version of the Avalanche LS has a base price of $35,490, the starting price for the 4WD Avalanche LT is $36,170 and the 4WD Avalanche LTZ starts at $42,905. Vehicle prices include $875 destination freight charge.
Delivering on Chevrolet’s promise to be the number one value leader in the marketplace, the all-new 2WD and 4WD 2007 Avalanche LS and LT models are priced more than $2,000 below comparably equipped 2006 Avalanche models. The LTZ trim-level was not offered in 2006. Avalanche is the third all-new Chevrolet utility launched during the past three months that is $2,000 less expensive than its predecessor. The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban were also priced more than $2,000 less than the previous model-year.
"The Chevrolet Avalanche enjoys one of the highest customer retention ratings in the industry," said Ed Peper, Chevrolet General Manager, "We wanted to reward and grow that customer loyalty by exceeding expectations for unparalleled capability and value. Avalanche buyers are practical adventure seekers who are looking for a vehicle to support their active lifestyles with the comfort of an SUV coupled with industry-leading, lockable cargo space they’ve come to expect from a pick-up truck. "
The unique Midgate technology enables the Avalanche to function as an SUV, truck or both. When the Midgate is closed, the lockable cargo bed is 5 ft. 3 in. (1.6 m) long and the passenger compartment can seat up to six passengers comfortably. When the Midgate is open and the rear seat is folded flat, the lockable cargo bed extends to 8 ft. 2in. (2.5 m) - 2 inches (51 mm) longer than previous models.
In addition to unparalleled flexibility in its design, the Chevrolet Avalanche’s efficient 5.3L V8 engine with Active Fuel Management Technology seamlessly switches from eight-cylinder to four-cylinder operation to save fuel. Several available engines will allow Avalanche to run on E 85, a renewable fuel source.
