A cool $32.5K will get you the new Chevrolet Avalanche, according to numbers recently revealed by General Motors. The sport utility truck, famous for its rugged (if controversial) looks and utilitarian disposition (is it a truck, or an SUV?), starts off at $32,490 in LS trim, with mid-grade LT spec commanding $33,170 and the full-boat LTZ going for a heady $39,905. Need four-wheel drive? Then figure on the following: the Avalanche LS will run $35,490, the LT will net $36,170, and the top-shelf LTZ rings up at $42,905.

      The Avalanche competes against the Sport Trac and Ridgeline, right?

      "copy of the Honda Ridgeline" ... The first Avalanche came out several years before the Ridgeline!
      • 9 Years Ago
      These are very handy vehicles, though the same concept in a midsize truck would also be nice. Somehow Honda, king of innovation, failed to include a midgate in the Ridgeline.

      I looked at one back when rebates where high--price without much equipment was in the mid-20s. Lot of truck at that price. Only time will tell where rebates on this one will end up. Rebates are currently low across the entire Chevrolet line, so GM might finally be kicking that habit.

      Pricing looks about a grand lower than for the Tahoe. I'll have more precise numbers after I input Avalanche data at http://www.truedelta.com.

      Stop being such redneck bone heads. Everybody knows GM copied the ridgeline. Thats why they are in litigation right now you dumbasses. Fucking rednecks never get it.

      Hey genius, the ridgeline was the copy, a knee jerk reaction by honda to compete in the truck market by converting their minivan-based honda pilot into the ridgeline. Please bring the ridgeline to my job site so everyone can gather around and laugh at its v6 and independent front suspension on a truck. That truck would get torn to peices in one day on the job.

      $32.5K ain't "cool" for any truck, it's stupid!

      • 9 Years Ago
      Are all the honda freaks retards? They ride around in piece of shit loud ugly riced out civics and then when it comes to trucks they want to compare the pussy ridgeline to a V-8 chevy? and who ever said that it was twice as expensive as the ridgeline needs to be shot just for being a complete fucking idiot.

      Well Paul, I think it was the other way around, Chevy first Honda second.

      Yep, missed you at the Toyota recall posting.

      How are things at the drive-up window today?

      Saw you trying to explain that the new burgers from Japan are great, they've been Asian engineer approved. I just wanted my coffee, but couldn't help hearing you trying to tell the customer that the combo of fish and beef was much better than beef alone.

      Her comment, I like what I like.

      Hey straighten that hat the next car might be your new Asian boss, he thinks that you might have a future cleaning fish at his Sushi bar.

      One Paul, or two?

      Since the Avalanche was out a few years earlier, if anyone is copying it's Honda.

      I don't have pricing info on the 2007 Avalanche yet, but comparing the Tahoe with the Ridgeline at my site finds a $6,500 difference. If the Avalanche is $1,000 less, then the difference will be about $5,500. Hardly twice as expensive.

      For the extra money you get:
      1. A larger truck
      2. A midgate to expand the bed to twice the size of the Honda's
      3. A 320HP V8 instead of a 255HP V6
