Pros: Mid Gate
Advice: Order a Z66 & Get the seat warmer options. Great for the cold mornings.Fell in love with The Avalanche from day one. Rides better and quieter than any vehicle I have owned. Handles great - fits in the same area of the garage that the old Silverado did. Chevy did its homework on this one. Great vehicle!
Advice: get one of each colorLove at first sight....(drive)
Pros: size of the interior and the 6 way power seats
Cons: My truck is perfect and sound
Advice: Go with the 4 door crew cab it's worth the small price for the extra roomI test drove this truck up and down the highway with good take off speed for a truck of its size and weight. This truck is solid and quiet. The captain seats are must on the crew cab. They are firm but comfortable. There is alot of storage space inside the cab with a good size space behind the rear seat. Ford did a great job combining the look and feel of a big truck while still making it a comfortable ride on long trips.
Pros: the look of the vehicle
Cons: The seats
Advice: get true bucket seatsThis vehicle is uncomfortable to sit in. The seats, unless they are truly bucket seats are uncomfortable.
Advice: Get oneBought one the same day. The 4.7 Magnum V8 is plenty in the Regular Cab.
Pros: Electronic Shift On the Fly
Cons: Difficult to wash the windshield if you are height challenged. Vehicle is taller than most pick-ups in its class.
Advice: Take a test drive and order one to your needs.I received my ordered 2002 just before Christmas and what a dream come true this vehicle is! The 1500 SLT Plus rides and handles like a car. I ordered the towing package, chrome step rails, solid tunnel cover, chrome exhaust tip, wind deflectors for the windows and hood along with mud flaps. This vehicle looks just as sharp as it handles. My FIRST PICKUP and I am not sorry in the least. One minor feature I wish was available and that is the ability to control the direction of the heat for both driver and passenger. At the moment, you can control only the heat, but not the direction of the flow.
Pros: 3rd door
Advice: run as fast as you can for the exit - do not uymy gmc sonoma with 4 cylinder engine which is the corporate twin to the s-10 was horrible. in less than 70,000 miles it had blew 2 head gaskets, the transmission went out, it went thru 3 u-joints, the alternator died, the 5-year extended coolant was rusty and need of a change in less than 2 years, and it broke a timing chain that incurred over $1200 in damage
