2017 Chevrolet Avalanche model history

In all, there were about 580,000 Avalanche’s produced to date, the reason that the model is so popular is because Chevrolet got the combination of utility, performance and luxury just right; the truck can be used for everyday use or loaded up by a tradesman for work – it just fits in so many different categories.

No doubt that Chevy have something lined up to replace the Avalanche – something this popular will be missed.
