It’s the last call for the Chevrolet Avalanche, a full-size, four-door pickup with sport utility vehicle attitude-after a 12-year run. On Friday, General Motors stated that the 2013 will be the last for the Avalanche. It goes out with a Black Diamond package, which integrates a unique badge and additional equipment. All 2013 Avalanche models will feature a Black Diamond treatment. The company also cut the base price by $820. The rear drive wheel 2013 Avalanche LS is available for the price of $ 36,975, including destination charges. For 2013, it gets foglamps, remote start, and rear parking sensors, adjustable pedals and rear camera as standard equipment. Opting for the LT trim level will get you a rear camera as standard.
Originally showcased as a concept at Detroit Motor Show in 2000 and marketed in 2001 as a 2002 model, it carried 2 distinctive features: Lockable storage bins in the side rails of truck bed and The midgate: the rear cab wall folded down for extending the length of truck bed from 5 feet, two inches, 3 inches to eight feet and a rear glass of crew cab could be removed. Other design elements included tailgate with wheel tread grips molded into the coating, a plastic coated truck bed, a 3-segment bed cover which created a water tight storage compartment and footsteps inserted into the edges of the rear bumper. The Avalanche is developed and designed on the large pickup truck frame of General Motors. It was redesigned for 2006 model year and its sales totaled 20,088 vehicles last year. General Motors says it has marketed over 580,000 copies of Avalanche since its launch.
