Welcome to day three of the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche Black Diamond Interactive Review. When I had last updated, I gave some brief information on the Avalanche and the price. Since then, I've been putting on the mileage on the truck and can offer some brief impressions.
I'm really impressed with the Avalanche's ride. It doesn't feel like a pickup where it seems to transmit most road imperfections and very bouncy. Instead the Avalanche rides like a luxury vehicle, driving over the bumps with you not really noticing it all.
Disappointments are coming from the interior as the cheap wood trim and the old headunit. They are really aging the Avalanche really quick.
Fuel economy has been hovering around 15.5 MPG so far in mostly suburban driving. I did take the Avalanche on a freeway trip and saw fuel economy rise to about 19.3 MPG.
I will have another update or two on Avalanche during the week, including how it fared during a donation run to the Salivation Army. In the mean time, leave your questions in the comments.
