#9 of 73 2007 Avalanche at Detroit Show in January ?!?
Dec 13, 2005 (2:50 pm)
Hi (if there is anyone out there?.....)
I fully expect GM to display a production version of the new Avalanche at the Detroit show in January.
I will be attending, so I will report.
I would imagine that many photos will appear on the net on this site as well as other vehicle-related sites.
The Chevrolet Avalance Owners Club site has posted some grainy shots that DO appear to be the new Avalanche.
#10 of 73 Length of 07 avalanche and caddy escalade ext

Is it generally believed that the 2007 ava and escalade ext will be longer than the current versions? I read that the suburban will be. If so, how much? I ask be/c we are looking at buying an ava or esc ext and they just fit in our garage now. I not to buy first model year of any new or major re-design vehicle due to inevitable bugs that they tend to have. This is especially true if GM is really 'rushing' these trucks to market.

These are the first pictures of the Chevrolet Avalanche that I've found.

That looks good, Chicago will also unveil the Tundra tomorrow. What a show!
#14 of 73 Looks more like the Honda

With the rounded edges and the missing body hardware, it looks more like the Ridgeline. I know that the Avalanche is bigger and tougher. I owned one for a few years but had to weigh education versus gasoline. The main thing that I don't like about the one pictured and those without the body hardware is that you give up the steps molded into the back bumper. Those came in real handy when trying to tie down bulky loads or just getting into the back of the truck when it was on a slope. I wonder how they are adding two inches to the bed and increasing the interior storage without making it longer?
#15 of 73 deisel for 07

Is there any chance that GM will put a deisel in the new Avalanche? Does anyone know why they didn't put a deisel in the first one?
#16 of 73 No longer making 2500s

for the 2007 model year. If there was going to be a model with a diesel engine I would've expected it to be in a 3/4 ton vehicle first. I don't believe GM currently has a diesel (Duramax?) engine and transmission sized appropriately for the lighter 1/2 ton or smaller vehicles.
#17 of 73 Edmunds' pricing information
Feb 16, 2006 (10:27 am)
Mods, do you have any idea when we can expect to see pricing information available on these vehicles here? I've already read of at least one person that claims to have placed an order. (Asking as someone extremely interested in ordering one myself, but who's interested in determining the financial feasibility first, or at least justifying it to my significant other ).

I read on another Avalanche enthusiast website that optioned out, the new Av. goes past $50k. That seems shockingly high to me. Although I suppose with $12k in rebates and discounts (Like I am seeing in the newspaper right now on 2006 GM trucks), the price could actually be in the high thirties for a well optioned one. For me, although many would consider it blasphemy, I'd rather have a Ridgeline rt AND a mini Cooper, than a $50k Avalanche. Maybe the new Silverado will be better priced.
