Chevy Avalanche Vs Ford F-150
A full-size pickup truck that can be converted into a roomy SUV in minutes? That’s the incredibly versatile new Avalanche from Chevy. The split personality of this vehicle opens up a wide range of possibilities, for work and for play. With two vehicles for the price of one, it’s hard to find a better deal. Stop by Cox Chevrolet in Bradenton, FL to learn more about all that this has to offer. There’s really nothing else like it on the road today.
Flexible, Functional, and Tough
There are few vehicles in our new inventory that stand out like the Avalanche, and thus, we get a lot of questions about how it stands up to the competition, namely against the Ford F-150. Here’s what we found.
The LS 5.3L V8 engine run on ethanol or gasoline and provides 320 hp and 335 lb-ft of torque; power the comparable F-150 XLT just can’t match.
With its bold styling, the Chevy presents a profile that is both rugged and elegant, but its attention to detail comes in the standard features: daytime running lights, steel wheels, trailer hitch receiver, and a luggage rack, outshining the Ford.
The spacious interior boasts comfort levels you’d expect to find on a luxury vehicle. A full array of advanced safety and technology applications are included, along with specific features that the F-150 doesn’t carry, such as:
- Passenger Air Bag Sensor
- Dual Zone Climate Control and Rear Climate Control
- Power Passenger Seat
- Rear Seat Audio Controls
Chevrolet backs it all up with a 5 year/100,000 mile Powertrain Warranty, to Ford’s 5 year/60,000 miles. The confidence that comes with coverage like that, along with the remarkable versatility of the Avalanche, easily make it the better deal all-around.
