I've owned my 2009 Chevy Avalanche for ~6 months and have thoroughly enjoyed driving this truck. The ride height is great and the ride is very smooth. The four-wheel drive has worked well in the limited snow / slush we've had, didn't slide around at all. Good acceleration and power. A bit thirsty, but not much more so than was my Montero Sport.
Bought my 2011 Denali 1500 used,I have had it more than 1 1/2 years its great,had over 150K miles when I purchased, I have put about 11K miles everything still works, drives good, ride great for a pickup plenty of power love the 6.2 better than the 5.3 lots of bells and whistle,14mpg have been on a few 1200 mile round trips with wife and 2 dogs got 18 mpg. I have had a ton dodge dully, 92 Silverado with the great 350, 2006 Silverado 5.3 SLT both 4wd z71. This is my favorite
I bought it used in 2016. Leather interior is nice, sun roof, AC seats. Ride is quiet and smooth and 5.3 has power to spare only issue is the brakes that do not stop during an idle roll at 74,000 miles and GMC sent letter that they would fix if miles were less than 74000. They will not recall it
it is one of the most fun trucks anyone can ever want to own it gets 35 mpg and alot of get up and go and pulls like a champ
Very good truck. Wish I could keep her forever
Best truck overall. Basic maintenance is all required (all fluids, battery,tires, etc) nothing major and still runs great.
