#2010 of 2035 2004 Avalanche changes?
Jul 05, 2003 (9:50 pm)
Besides the new color, silverstone metallic, does anyone know what changes GM will make for the 2004?

Are the 2004's getting the new style 17" wheels that are on the Tahoes?
Looks like the vast majority of Avalanches being ordered are WBH's now.

I am going to buy an Avalanche and one told me the 4.10 gears are better...... 2 MPG better doesn't shift down against wind, going up hills. Has anyone had a good comparison on the different gear ratios???? You can really tell the diference driving around town in power, wondring about gas mileage also...

I would only say get the 4.10 gears if you are towing....
MPG shoudl favor the 3.73 since at highway speed the engine is at lower RPM....and should be using less fuel.,....also you will notice the sticker for both gears give the same MPG...and 2mpg gain is well a lot...over 10% on highway...Which can be due to anything.....
I have also heard the 4.10 gears are weaker since less material is available to transmit the tooth load due to having more teeth in the same diamter.....

...... Unless you have a big boat (21ft+) or camper and your going to tow with it every weekend, unless you live in an area with lot's of steep hills and valleys, unless your living waaay north of the Mason/Dixon line, then you should stay with the 3.73 .... what size motor are you lookin' at, you might only need a 3.50 ...

Dealer claims new motors perform better with higher rpm's looking at 5300 motor... probably trying to sell what he has in stock 4.10. I don't tow much at all .

the torque peak in the GM motors does occur at a relatively high rpm.
