What You'll Like
The 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche's design is virtually unique in the market. It attempts to solve both passenger-hauling needs and cargo-hauling needs with a single truck. There's almost nothing else quite like the Avalanche's folding mid-gate in the market-- it allows the bed to be expanded only when needed and have more interior space the rest of the time. Overall, handling and ride quality are a step above what might be expected in a full-size pickup and the cabin has a refined feel with top-notch materials. Towing capacity is an impressive 8,100 pounds.

What's New for 2013
2013 marks the final year for the Chevrolet Avalanche. Chevrolet is commemorating the truck by designating the 2013 models "Black Diamond" editions. This means that they will have attractive body colored bed surrounds and additional features on the LS and LT models. The LS and LT now come standard with a rear camera, while the LS also includes parking assist, a remote starter, power adjustable pedals and fog lamps. Prices have also been lowered across the board.

A vehicle’s warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer’s lot, and it’s important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission.
