The Chevy Avalanche is known for its first class SUV comfort mixed with a high amount of cargo space. When you mix those two things together, you can easily see why people buy them and turn them into a good looking, pimped out car. The 2013 model is no different; in fact, it is the last of its kind as Chevrolet is ending this particular line of utility vehicles.
2013 Avalanche Cargo Space
As the Avalanche is known for its space, we are going to talk a little about the differences in the cargo area of the Avalanche. The design of the cargo area is an exclusive Midgate named design. The Midgate extends the bed of the truck into the cab for extra space when needed. This extra space is used when you fold down the back seats.
That was the truck side of the Avalanche. Now lets see about the SUV side of it. When the seats arenít folded down, it can hold up to six passengers. The Avalanche can also be turned into the perfect vehicle for a truck bed cookout. This is completed by the fact that it has storage spaces especially for ice and drinks. This compartment has drainage holes to make sure of easy cleaning and a good place to keep things cool.
Avalanche Comfort and Safety
With any of the new SUVs there are quite a few different features that make it not just a safe car to drive, but also a fashionable vehicle. One of these things is the fact that Avalanche has an Active Fuel Management system. The AFM system will take into account different times when you need a higher amount of power or a lower amount of power and switch of parts of the engine to conserve gas. Because the Avalanche is a V8, the AFM will switch off 4 of the cylinders to conserve over 6% of the fuel you might has used.
When you buy a SUV, you have two different things that you might use it for, transporting family and friends, and transporting cargo. Either way you want to make sure that you can a safe ride that you can use. The Avalanche offers a plethora of safety features that are constantly active for the maximum amount of safety possible. This starts with the frame of the Avalanche. The frame is especially made for protection, making a sort of safety cage around the cab.
The features continue with StabiliTrak, a system that will speed up, slow down, or a combination of both to make sure your car doesnít flip over. It also has a constant tire pressure monitoring system, rearview camera, and rear assist parking. To top it all off, you will get am OnStar system. OnStar is a program that is built into your car so that if you do get into an accident, OnStar will call your car and make sure you are okay, if you arenít they can even send a ambulance to your current location.
Make sure that you buy an Avalanche before they are all completely gone.
