2012 Chevrolet Avalanche Review

FLEXABILITY working for you that’s the Avalanche. The 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche offers the passenger-comfort of an SUV with the cargo capacity of a truck. The Avalanche is a vehicle without peers. Offered in LS LT and LTZ models. A 5.3L V8 with a robust 320Horse Power That propels it. All models come standard with the revolutionary Active Fuel Management which seamlessly switches between eight and four-cylinder power to save fuel. And with the E-85 option the Avalanche is super efficient. And with the GM-exclusive Midgate the 2012 Avalanche can change from a six-passenger SUV to a full-size pickup with seating for three and an eight-foot protected cargo box. Avalanche offers a new USB port to connect your MP3 player. A rear seat DVD entertainment system and XM satellite radio to make your trips more enjoyable. And a rearview camera to make things a bit easier. Loaded with features and options - the 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche works for you.
