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.
