The approaching 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche is a four-door pickup truck that was first introduced back in 2001 and it gained instant success. However, Chevrolet discounted Avalanche in 2013 because of low sales. Now, the new Avalanche is ready to hit the markets again, as the demand for new pickups is bigger than ever.
We could see that Ford is returning some of its models back on the market, the same stands with Jeep’s Wrangler and Chevy are doing the same with the Avalanche model. The 2019 Chevy Avalanche will come is smaller dimensions than its predecessor and we expect a more modern pickup and better in all of the aspects.
2019 Chevrolet Avalanche is lighter than predecessor
A heavy use of an aluminum material and high-strength steel is a certain thing to happen. The new model will come not only lighter than its predecessor but smaller as well. The upcoming 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche is around 200 pounds lighter. However, no interior space is sacrificed. The overall look is not boxy as the latest version.
The stylings are aerodynamic and front part comes with some innovations like new headlights and new front bumper. The front fascia looks muscular and some nice lines are running through the whole body.
2019 Chevrolet Avalanche Changes
The 2019 Chevrolet Avalanche will be available in four trim levels. Each trim brings unique features and there are plenty of interior options. The standard model will include dual-zone climate control, USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Furthermore, an 8-inch touchscreen and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot are included as well. The changes are evident and the cabin will also get some new colors. In higher trims, the leather seats will be offered with heated and ventilated function.
Modern and Comfortable Cabin
The cabin looks modern and comfortable with plenty of new details. However, the new upholstery option is a speculation for now, but it is a possibility and even the dash and center console could gain new colors too.
The front seats are power-adjustable with heating and cooling features. Furthermore, the telescoping steering wheel is added as well and it includes an infotainment control. Even that the exterior dimensions are slightly decreased, new Avalanche still can fit adults with no problem and the legroom is generous.
The safety is better thanks to electronic stability control, adaptive cruise control, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear-view camera and children safety lock. This is a small list of the features that will new model bring. We also expect some additional features and packages that will bring this pickup truck in a higher level.

Even the diesel variant is a possibility in the near future. A 6-speed automatic transmission is available and all-wheel-drive configuration is optional.
Towing Capacity and Fuel Economy
Chevrolet didn’t produce any official towing specs, but we expect that the new Avalanche could tow around 8,200 pounds. However, as for fuel economy of this pickup, there is also no official info at this moment but we expect good efficient of all engines.
