Chevrolet Avalanche history started back in 2001 and since then the company has sold a total of 580,000 units, while the model has received numerous major awards and recognitions. However, Chevrolet decided to take the model out while its still in its glory. And, as a thank you to all its customers, the company will be offering for the 2013 model year the special edition Black Diamond Avalanche.
For the 2013 model year all the LS models will get a rear camera, rear park assist, power adjustable pedals, fog lamps and remote start, while the LT models will add a standard rear camera. The Black Diamond Avalanches will further add body-colored bed surrounds, a unique badge on the sail panel.
After the equipment adjustments the car’s base price has been reduced by $2,500, so that now the 2WD Avalanche LS starts at $35,980, plus $995 dealer freight charge.
"Although Avalanche sales have tapered off in recent years, as crew cabs have grown to dominate Silverado sales, we know there are many Avalanche enthusiasts among Chevy customers," said Mark Clawson. "The Black Diamond Avalanche is our way of saying ‘Thank you’ and making it just a little more attractive to own one more Avalanche."
Chevy Avalanche is the industry’s most flexible utility vehicle, combining the passenger-comfort attributes of an SUV with the cargo capability of a truck. It is based on GM’s full-size SUV platform, which features segment-leading fuel economy and flex-fuel capability; a sharp, precise driving feel, interior refinement and notable quietness.
The all-new 2007 Chevy Avalanche is one of the industry’s most unique and capable SUVs, combining full-size utility interior room and truck-like cargo capability. GM engineers developed the Avalanche Z71 Plus to project the ultimate off-road image, equipping it with accessories that make the Z71 Plus a go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle.
The Chevy Avalanche was the first to combine the passenger-comfort attributes of an SUV with the cargo capability of a truck. The 2007 model is based on GM’s brand-new, full-size SUV platform, which features more power with improved, segment-leading fuel economy and flex-fuel capability on some models; a sharper, more precise driving feel; increased interior refinement and improved quietness; and world-class safety. From its SUV comfort and ingenious Midgate to its new family of flex-fuel-capable engines, Avalanche delivers a unique combination of cargo and passenger options.
