    If they are gonna take a K5 and make it something totally different, why don't they call it something else?

    <font color=blue>I saw it in person at the New York Auto Show this spring. I thought it was cool, but its still a 4 door. It would be cool if they made it with the 8.1 but I doubt that'll happen

    I would buy it if it were available. It's the size of our K5's and thats a good size for the Lady and I. The extra doors should would settle a lot of the problems we have with 2 kids. Most of the smaller ute's are just to small for our OVERALL needs. 90% of the time they would be ok but I want something that can pull a trailer without getting a hernia. I have honestly thought about buy and Avalanch because of the shear versitality it offers and the 4 doors. I like everything about the that but all the freaking plastic down the sides. If the trimed it out more like a Burb or Tahoe I might seriously buy one.

    Ah hell, put a solid axle under it and you would be good to go. No more worries about IFS. And I would buy it in a heartbeat!

    don't even think about gettin one of the avalanches... i read in i think it was car and driver.... when they took it offroad they had to stop on the way back off the coarse and pick up all the plastic that had fell off it

    BAD LUCK is better than no luck at all!!!!
    Is it bad that my truck is older than my wife?<P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by BAD LUCK 79' on 12/10/01 11:16 PM.</FONT></P>

    it looks like the avalanche with a squeased rear and back seat. I think that if someone really wants an avalanche, then wait two years or so. By then chevy will change the amount of plastic that is on the thing, and make it more metal, and less plastic. If the plastic on the truck was paint, then it would be awesome.

    16, 88 jimmy, give me advise if i ask for it, please!!!!!!!!!!!

    Although its not comparible to the "original" K5's that we all love, if put out on the market, it would probably be one of the best trucks in that class. I would consider getting one.

    Know any GOOD Wheelin' in Northwest Jersey, let me know?

    Speaking of Avalanches, has anyone seen the Caddy version of it? I saw one on the street yesterday and nearly laughed myself to death - Imagine the Avalanche with even more plastic, and even funkier grillework.

    ......And knowing is half the battle

    I guess almost all new trucks are crap then since there are about 3 trucks on the market with a solid front anymore.

    The Avalanche is longer than the Suburban. What do you expect to happen to the plastic when you take it off-road?
