It looks like another familiar nameplate is coming back. This time, we are talking about 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche. If we can trust rumors that circulate on the network, the company plans to revive the model that has been produced between 2001 and 2013. Spread through two generations, this truck was characterized by a long wheelbase that provides both roomy interior and plenty of bed volume. Initial models were quite popular, thanks to obvious advantages. However, sales started to decline, which resulted in discontinuation in 2013. Since then, internet forums are full of speculations that suggest the comeback of this interesting truck.
What are the main characteristics that characterize Chevrolet Avalanche models from previous years?
Despite the fact that Chevy already has one of the most popular full-size trucks around, the Avalanche supposed to make the offer wider. Compared to Silverado, it comes with a longer wheelbase. It’s not hard to make a conclusion that this extension is highly beneficial in terms of interior space. So, this truck offers more interior space, while not sacrificing bed dimensions. Previous generations featured the same chassis as Suburban SUV and we can presume that the new 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche will go in the same way.
2019 Chevrolet Avalanche Platform
The 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche should come as a completely new model, after six years of break. At the moment, it is hard to tell more precise details about the platform. The new Silverado is on its way. On the other side, it looks like the new Suburban won’t be ready for the next year and that the redesigned version will debut as the 2020 year model. Some sources suggest that 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche specs would be similar to the new Silverado, with the addition of extended wheelbase. This means that the new long-wheelbase would come on the same new platform that utilizes new lightweight materials. Also, this would mean that we are about to see this truck before the new Suburban, though two models should share the chassis once again.
2019 Chevrolet Avalanche Styling
When it comes to the visual appearance, we can expect a lot of share parts with the new Silverado. This would mean completely same design language, which will later be implied on other SUVs and trucks from Chevy. Of course, the most notable is the front end, which comes with new headlights design, as well as with the new grille, bumpers etc. On the inside, the 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche interior will probably mirror the new Silverado. We should see the same cabin, though more spacious, with more leg and head room for passengers. Naturally, this one won’t be available in Single Cab version.
2019 Chevrolet Avalanche Engines
Once again, expect the same specs as for the new light duty truck. Base models should feature a brand-new 2.7-liter turbo engine with 310 horsepower. Also, expect to see two familiar V8 units in the offer. The first one is a 5.3-liter unit with around 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. The other one is a 6.2-liter unit, which is good for about 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Of course, both units should come with some output increase for this occasion.
Expect to see a diesel version as well. That should be a familiar 3.0-liter engine, which is in current version good for about 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque
When it comes to transmission, expect to see new 8- and 10-speed units in the offer.
When will 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche arrive?
We expect 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche release date to be scheduled for the end of 2018.
2019 Chevrolet Avalanche Price
It is still early to speculate about 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche price, though some sources suggest that base models could go around 40.000 dollars.
