This 4-door pickup was firstly introduced back in 20012 and it was the 2002 Model Year. At the time, the Avalanche shared the same platform with the Cadillac Escalade EXT and with the Chevrolet Suburban. However, in 2013, Chevrolet decided to discontinue the Avalanche because it was having poor sales.
At the moment, the family-centric pickup market seems to be coming back and there are already many manufacturers targeting it. So, we will have a new 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche.
So far, we know that the new 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche will be smaller than the old model. However, this won’t affect the cabin which means the truck bed at the back may be suffering all the consequences.
2018 Chevrolet Avalanche Release Date
By now, we should have already seen some spy-shots and leaks. However, since we haven’t seen anything like that about the 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche, we are only expecting it to be launched next year.
Make sure that you’re on to of the new car releases.
2018 Chevrolet Avalanche Price
The truth is that even though the market is quite hot, the competition is already there as well. So, the 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche needs to have a pretty competitive price. The truth is that Chevrolet won’t be offering it too cheap. We are counting with a starting price for the new 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche at about $40,000.
2018 Chevrolet Avalanche Redesign and Changes
The truth is that we can really see the new 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche as a completely new pickup. After all, the model was discontinued back in 2013 as we already mentioned. So, we just can’t compare both.
In our opinion, the new 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche should be a lot lighter than the older one because it will be using some composite materials, high-strength steel, and aluminum. We are expecting to see a reduction of about 200 pounds.
In what relates with the exterior design, we are expecting to see a boxy, big, and square pickup, with a reasonable aerodynamic design. It should be pretty similar to the Honda Ridgeline which should be the Avalanche main competitor.

2018 Chevrolet Avalanche Specs
According to some rumors that we have been hearing, it seems that Chevrolet has been working on two different engines – a V8 and a V6. So, under the hood, we are expecting to see a smaller V6 turbocharged engine. Even though there is no official data, we are expecting to see either a 3.5 or a 3.0-liter V6 engine that should be able to produce between 280 and 340 of horsepower and 400 pound of torque.
The standard version of the new 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche should come as rear-wheels. However, you should have the option to get the all-wheel drive on a higher trim level.
In what concerns with the transmission, we are expecting to see a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
2018 Chevrolet Avalanche Interior
The truth is that there are absolutely no news regarding the different trims that you should have with the 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche. However, we are thinking that there should be 4 different trim levels and, according to the one that you get, you get different technology.
In terms of security features and technology, the 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche should come with an 8” touchscreen infotainment system, voice-activated navigation, rear-view camera, an LCD instrument display, pedestrian detection with automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alerts, blind-spot monitoring, lane guidance with lane keep assist, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, adaptive cruise-control, USB ports, and and dual-zone climate control.
