    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x2

    Pros: Side compartments

    Cons: No running boards.

    Advice: Drive it, you will love it, then buy it.

    Drives very solid. More like a Tahoe than a Silverado. Enough power to get you where you need to go, and extremly comfortable.

    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x4

    Pros: Flexibility - it is a truck , it is an SUV, it drives on the highway like a Suburban

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Just be interested in a big vehicle - same size as a Suburban

    I bought one. GM is kicking Ford's b----. If you are serious about off roading, camping and driving in snow - this is the truck for you.

    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x4

    Pros: Conversion from a SUV to a truck in a flash!

    Cons: Parking the vehicle.

    Advice: Drive it and you will love it!

    It drives like a luxury car. The steering has a little play in it, but manageable. The get up and go of the vehicle is not that great. Pf course, I like speed! When driving the Avalanche, you do get alot of head turns! What is that??? This is the look you get on the road! Great SUV! I will not call it a truck!

    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x4

    Pros: Panels, compartments, windows, compartments, pickup bed, compartments

    Cons: feels heavy

    Advice: if you want the creature comforts of a suburban, buy one --

    Hello from Fairfax Virginia, home to more SUVs per capita than anywhere in the nation (although terrain is relatively flat, and no snow to speak of). I've owned Suburbans, Expeditions, and one Isuzu diesel PU, and the Avalanche is the 'Reanimator' version (remember the movie?) of all three. Although only 3100 GVW, the Avalanche feels exceedingly heavy, in that it is based on the Suburban platform. However, it is very comfortable, and doesn't have that F250 feel that the Expedition has. Cool features, although I am concerned about the seal between the PU bed and the passenger compartment -- a great idea, but I think I'll wait a year before I spring for one - as a yuppie with a big yard, the Suburban/PU combination is intriguing, and, there aren't many on the road.
