new Avalanche

wtf is it? I can't decide if i like it or not. What do yall think? I did stop by a dealer just to get a closer look and saw it had a locking diff. When did they start that again, or did they stop, or have they ever in a 1/2 tone?

Re: new Avalanche

I don't like them myself. I also stopped by a dealership to check one out..didn't like it, and a guy a few houses down just bought one..didn't like it either. One of the biggest reasons why I don't like 'em are because all of the plastic they put on it. But if you like em and can afford it, more power to ya. But thats just my opinion.

Re: new Avalanche

I think that although they are ugly they are inovateive with things like the wall between the bed and the box that folds down out of the way.Also thet're a little on the expensive side.

Take care of the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.

Re: new Avalanche

when i first saw one at the auto show, i liked it, but now that they removed the lights from over the cab, and added twice as much plastic... they screwed it up. (im talking about looks alone, i never looked "under the hood")

Will work for mods

Re: new Avalanche

The locking dif should be a Gov-loc. And since these are available as a 3/4 ton, you can get a 14SF and a 6.0L.

Re: new Avalanche

I hope all the "more plastice than sheet metal" fad dies down. I also think its ugly like sin. I hope this isn't the direction that things keep going, because I drove around in a plasic car when I was 5, and I don't wanna drive around in one when I'm 30. If I have kids I certainly don't want them to grow up never knowing sheetmetal. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] See where I'm coming from?

Re: new Avalanche

Can someone please tell me what Chevrolet was thinking??? Is there really a market for that plastic crap? What are people like us going to do if they ever go exclusively to making the "plastic vehicles". I guess its all the more reason to hold onto what I have...

Re: new Avalanche

I pretty much put that truck on the same level as the Aztek(ugly as sin).G.M puts out some nice stuff but needs to get a little more customer influence before they release a design.As far as a locking diff. that has been on 1/2 tons as an option for a long time.
