Used Car Spotlight: 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche

November 28th, 2014 by

If you are searching for used cars in Cincinnati, Ohio, McCluskey Chevrolet offers you some of the best deals on some of the best models. From time to time, we like to highlight one of the models in our inventory to give you some more in-depth information about it and let you know what makes it special.

Today, we are spotlighting the 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche, a unique crew cab pickup truck that combines a full-size SUV body with a truck bed. The truck is built on the same platform at the Chevy Suburban and the GMC Yukon. The result is a comfortable yet powerful ride with enough space for passengers and cargo.

Engine Features

The 2011 Chevy Avalanche has a 5.3-liter, V8 engine, and it comes with both rear-wheel and four-wheel drive depending on the trim package you choose. The truck has Flex-Fuel capability and Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation to help you make the most of your fuel efficiency. Even with these features, the truck doesn’t get exceptional fuel economy. However, it more than makes up for it with its other features.

Towing Capacity

One of the best features about the 2011 Chevy Avalanche is its towing capacity. The bed can haul up to 8,100 pounds of cargo, including with a tow. The bed is a little shorter than other trucks, but the extended cab allows for more storage space. Inside the cab, the rear seats can be lowered, offering even more cargo space. With the seat backs raised, you can carry as many passengers in the Avalanche as you could in a sedan (as many as six).

Exterior and Interior Features

The exterior is monochromatic, and you have a choice of a large variety of colors. Exterior features include storage compartments by the cargo box, wide fenders, wider front and rear tracks for driving stability and smoother lines for a more sleek design. Inside, the instrument panel is lower and the windshield is deeper, which provides a little more room for passengers. A large console with big gauges makes it easy to see all instruments without taking your eyes off the road for too long.

Overall, the 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche provides a comfortable ride, good handling and large cargo capacity. McCluskey Chevrolet currently has a white 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 LTZ for sale for $35,452.
