The Chevrolet Avalanche is a full-sized crew-cab pickup with an innovative folding partition GM calls a "midgate". This allows the extension the truck's bed into its cab. With an available full-time four-wheel drive system, the Avalanche did very well in our testing. It's quiet, rides comfortably and the Chevy's optional rearview camera system greatly improves outward visibility to the rear.

"This vehicle still looks and drives like near new.. Some friends are surprised to learn that it is a 2007."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?".
