2010 Chevrolet Avalanche Engine Specs, Pricing, and Safety Features

It’s a Big Ol’ Truck; it’s the 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche and it’s loaded with exciting features, plenty of power and a long list of standard safety features. A lot of Americans don’t understand that the Avalanche measures just one inch less in length then the massive Chevy suburban. It shares the GMT900 platform with the Suburban, Tahoe, Silverado, GMC Sierra, GMC Yukon and the Cadillac Escalade. Chevrolet calls the Avalanche “Jack of all trades” due to the loads of utility that it presents. It meshes its powerful hauling capacity with plenty of comfort, and with SUV capability.

The 2010 Avalanche from Chevrolet is fitted with a highly innovative Midgate, a bulkhead located between its pickup bed and its passenger compartment. It’s able to be removed, as is the hard-surfaced pickup bed cover, to achieve a Tahoe-like sport utility configuration while still providing the spaciousness and freedoms provided by a five-foot bed. The Avalanche is designed to comfortably accommodate five passengers, but when you open the midgate and pull down the rear seats, it also serves well as a full utility pickup truck that has its entire 8 foot bed enclosed. You can secure outdoors gear and other valuables, or full 8-foot sheets of drywall, or whatever else you like, from thieves, the weather and more. One thing is sure: the Avalanche is huge on versatility.

The Chevrolet Avalanche 2010 is also able to pull up to 8000 pounds behind it. Enclosed car trailers, sizable watercraft, tool trailers and more can be towed with ease. It features a beefy 5.3L gasoline/ethanol Vortec V8 engine that generates 320 horsepower at 5400 RPM. It’s joined by a 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive that helps to generate 335 lb-ft of torque at 4000 RPM. The Avalanche also features Sequential Fuel Injection, coil-over-shock front suspension and Multi-Link rear suspension to optimize driving enjoyment. Chevrolet’s suggested retail pricing begins at $35,725. Loads of excellent financing incentives await you right now!
