Used Chevrolet Avalanche

Drive Home in a Used Chevy Avalanche From Cox Chevrolet

2012 Chevrolet Avalanche If you’re looking for a great new family or work vehicle, visit your Tampa-area Chevy dealer. At Cox Chevy in Bradenton, we have a wide variety of used cars, trucks, and SUVs, including used Chevy Avalanche models. Combining the hauling capabilities of a pickup with the cabin room of an SUV, the Avalanche walks the line as a perfect vehicle for the job site or the home.

There have been two Avalanche generations, and we thought we’d give you an overview of each so you can know what to expect if you go browsing for one.

The Second Generation Avalanche (2007 to 2013)

The sleek design of the latter Avalanche models combined with their level of interior refinement to give drivers access to luxury-level features on an affordable pickup truck. With a 310-hp 5.3L V8 under the hood, you had more than enough power to back up the Avalanche’s reputation as a pickup truck, but if you felt you needed more, don’t worry. Chevrolet made a 6.0L V8 with 366 hp available from 2007 to 2009.

Based on General Motors’ full-size SUV build, the Avalanche truly gives drivers the best of both worlds. Some amenities you could find on this generation include:

  • Bluetooth
  • OnStar telematics
  • Bose sound system
  • Rear parking sensors and a rearview camera
  • Adaptive suspension with automatic load leveling

The First Generation Chevy Avalanche (2002 to 2006)

In 2002, the idea of a truck mixed with an SUV was a new thing, yet Chevrolet knocked it out of the park with the early Avalanche models. Featuring a foldable mid-gate section, the Avalanche had room for expansion as you needed it, up to the length of a normal long bed pickup.

Multiple engine options were available from a 285 hp 5.3L V8 to a 340 hp 8.1L V8, each paired with a four-speed automatic transmission.  As far as technology is concerned, you’ll want to look toward the higher trim levels on the later model years if you are looking for anything like satellite radio or a DVD entertainment system for the rear passengers.
