PickupTrucks.com Chevy Avalanche Road Trip

How well does the Chevrolet Avalanche handle a college coed and all her stuff on a cross-country trip? Day one of the journey started in Washington, D.C., and covered five states. Follow PickupTrucks.com Editor Mark Williams on a road trip with his daughter. There are lots more miles and states to come.

I love the avalanche, it's the best of both worlds.


@ Skinner, I second that, I purchased the original 2002 Z71 4x4 and have never regretted it. It's the ultimate camping truck. Everything has it's place, lockable, and unlike the Ridgeline, you wouldn't have to unload the bed to get to your spare tire or use that 'well' Honda owners brag about. Great power, and compared to other trucks with the same abilities is actually not as thirsty for fuel considering the weight and towing ability. For all the haters, yes I have the 'tupperware' cladding, but thats what appealed to me, I can bomb through low brush and flying stones on Utah's 4x4 roads and still have lower body paint left. But now that GM has decided to end this vehicle, they will probably lose my next purchase.
