Avalanche is a perfect blend of flexibility and functionality for people who want to be ready for anything at a moment's notice. That's because Avalanche can keep up with your pace of life by changing from an SUV to a pickup truck in less than a minute. Step inside and you'll enjoy the comfort, look and feel of an upscale SUV. And whenever you need it, you'll also have the capability and power of a full-size pickup.
Avalanche’s interior delivers a high level of refinement, comfort, quality and convenience. The front seats are comfortable and allow easy entry/egress. The rear seat is unique to the Avalanche and enables easy access to the Midgate system. The seat folds flat, allowing longer items to be carried between the cargo bed and into the rear passenger compartment.
Comfort features include an efficient HVAC system, and generous storage capability – with the segment’s largest center console storage bin, a large glove box and numerous storage compartments. Avalanche also offers a host of available convenience features, including:
* Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist
* Remote vehicle starting
* Driver information center
* Tri-zone automatic HVAC
* Rearview camera system
* Touch-screen navigation system
* DVD rear-seat entertainment system with eight-inch screen that can play videos stored on iPods.
Avalanche’s flexibility enables it to function as an SUV, truck or both, thanks to the exclusive Midgate. Pioneered on the first-generation Avalanche, the Midgate opens to extend the cargo-carrying capability from the cargo bed’s 5-foot-3-inch-long (1.6 m) length to 8 feet 2 inches (2.5 m). The rear seat must be folded to achieve maximum storage capability; with the rear seat up and the Midgate closed, Avalanche has room for up to six passengers.
Avalanche may look like fun, but it's built to work hard too. It offers up to 8,100 lbs.(8) of towing capacity to haul big items such as a boat. Avalanche doesn't sacrifice ride quality when it's loaded up either, thanks to its coil-spring suspension. There are also plenty of available accessories to help make your towing and packing easier.
When the Midgate is open and the rear seat is folded flat, Avalanche can carry 4-foot by 8-foot (1.2 m by 2.4 m) sheets of plywood with the tailgate closed. Storage compartments alongside the cargo box provide ample and lockable storage. The storage compartments also have drains, so they can be filled with ice and used as coolers. A three-piece rigid cargo cover with interlocking panels also is available.
of course this car will be ready to compete in world markets. article figure than among the public.
