But the most important part of each vehicle is in fact what is under the hood and the same goes for the 2017 Chevrolet Avalanche model. The car is getting updated with a great engine setup that will support the basic needs that the needs. The titled engine that is given here is the  5.3-liter flex-fuel V8 which can make up to 355 horsepower and will have a torque of about 494 Nm. The engine setup is going to combine with a 6-speed Hydra-Matric transmission and there is going to be a front-wheel drive available as a standard option but for those of you who need it you can order the car with an optional all-wheel drive system as well. The acceleration of the car is pretty impressive as it holds pretty nice specs now as the upgraded performance allow it to reach 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds. The added lightweight materials that the vehicle incorporates now also enable better fuel economy which is now measured at  15 mpg while on the highway this truck will consume about 22 mpg.

Interior design

The interior of the truck is supposed to be attractive and elegant. As most of the rivals are going this way the 2017 Chevrolet Avalanche takes the same road and adds the appearance of a car that everyone else is getting. The elegant and attractive features are bolstered with a new and refreshed dashboard design which is further bolstered with new and comfy materials. The inside will add wood trims and leather materials for a more premier look that you are perhaps no used to seeing inside a pickup truck. But the better and high quality materials are now a standard in this kind of models so gong with the time is going to be important.

The model also gets a lot of technical additions and upgrades. With the added infotainment system you will be able to enjoy your ride even more particularly when you do some utility work or hauling with your truck.

Finally, the lightweight materials make a lot of difference for this sort of a car as it does a great job for its fuel efficiency and consumption. The available trims this time are going to be the LS, LT, LTZ and Black Diamond.

There are not enough information to help us determine when exactly the vehicle is going to be released but many indications actually place it at somewhere of the end of this year. We are leaning towards the beginning of the next and we see that the car is going to get its release date in early 2017. The price is still not determined as well but it is going to be somewhere between $ 32,000 and $ 40,000.

    If they wanted to create something ugly enough that it would not sell I do believe they have succeeded. I was one of those who was anticipating the purchase of the new Avalanche. Read it again ….was waiting. Looks like I will find something else.

    I bought a 2013 Avalanche (black diamond)with very few miles and it is a classic, AND it DOES NOT have that “Comerro” look. If GM wanted to resurrect the Comerro,, they should have done so and called it anything but Avalanche. (Calling it ugly would work)

    My reaction is that of everyone else’s…. if I wanted a Honda, I would have bought one. This “thang” is ugly! Someone needs to be fired for this crap they call modern/contemporary (whatever you want to call it). I like the interior thus far….. but exterior….. really?! I was also looking forward to upgrading to the newer model but I guess I’ll keep my 2010. She is still going strong. I’m so disappointed.

    It is clear they didn’t listen to their customers. It ugly and has only two doors. It seems they have designed to remove all the reasons people bought the previous one. If that is what it really is going to be when they bring it out, I am going to keep my 2013 Avalanche.

    This is totally alien to anything I have known as an Avalance. . Ava has had such a tremendous reputation for being a sport ,recreational, tow capability, family size,and reliable.
    It will be interesting ,the base model if as described . Not even s choice. The engine sounds good . Transmission also. The looks . Alien to what an Ava should be

    I really hope this a joke. FWD / AWD Avalanche …. why bother ?

    Darn! It looks a lot like a Honda Ridgeline!!!! I’ll keep my 2011.

    Enjoying my second Avalanche because of the roominess and stylish design. Whatever marketing genius thought this “club cab” should pass as the Avalanche is out of their mind. Maybe a rename for this Chevrolet model should be Snow Flurry and we shall await the full sized Avalanche in the future.
