2013 Chevrolet Avalanche Review
2013 Chevrolet Avalanche Review

The Chevrolet Avalanche has been around for the past 12 years on the market, and has always been a truck that people have developed a great fondness for. The 2013 version of the Avalanche is not going to disappoint in terms of what it is offering to the consumer market. The Black Diamond badge will be accenting all versions of the 2013 Avalanche to mark the ending of production, which is sure to make this a special vehicle to own, while it is still the same basic Avalanche, which is loved throughout the market.

New For 2013

For 2013, consumers will notice a few changes in the Avalanche. These changes include standard rear parking assistance technology, rearview camera capabilities, and remote start for all models. The brake and gas pedals now include power adjustments. There are new exterior colors and a cheaper price for the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche. Options now include heated seating, and now the bed of the truck is painted the same color as the rest of the truck.

Exterior

Exterior wise, the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche will remain the same box style truck that has been on the market for years. However, with the approach of the 2013 model, there will be a few slight differences. The truck bed will be colored to match the exterior paint color. While there is also a new color for this year called Fairway Metallic. There is also the option for having 20-inch chrome wheels installed to give a more luxurious look to the Avalanche. There is also more on-board storage with a toolbox built into the bed of the truck for safer transporting of tools and the like.

Interior & Cargo

The interior of the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche is everything to be expected of a truck with a luxury interior most notably compared to an SUV. Heated seats are an available option to the consumer for an additional price, which are installed by the dealer upon purchasing. With the LTZ model, a heating steering wheel is included in the package, along with the seats being power adjusted through a 12-point system.

In addition, with the LS model of the Avalanche there are manual dual climate controls. The other models (LT and LTZ) will have automatic climate control throughout the cabin. The remote start is also a newer option to the vehicle, which is standard on all Black Diamond badged Avalanche’s.

Power windows and door locks are also included with the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche, along with many technology applications, which make the interior more stylish and luxurious. These features include the option of having rear entertainment screens built into the headrests, an onboard touch screen navigation system which includes membership to MyChevrolet, and the ability to have on board internet for all internet-enabled devices. Standard technology features include Bluetooth synchronization and a Bose sound system.

The cargo space of the Avalanche is quite impressive with a total of 45.5 square feet of hauling space. The bed is coated with rubber meaning everything will stay in place and is safer for consumers who are hauling items. The tailgate is lockable to ensure anything being hauled is guarded against theft.

Safety

The safety of the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche is top notch when compared to other vehicles on the market. From the get go, the Avalanche is built to help the driver have more control over the truck. There is stability control in place, which helps to ensure the truck stays on the road even in the worst of conditions. This stability responds when the driver is unable to stay on the road through making slight corrections to the wheels.

There are crush zones throughout the steel body of the truck, along with it being made from a high-grade steel to ensure passenger protection in the event of a crash. Airbags are standard on the vehicle no matter which model is chosen. There are dual driver and passenger airbags, as well head curtain side impact airbags and side impact bags in the heads of the seats, for a total of six airbags deploying whenever the truck is involved in an accident.

Perhaps one of the better safety features of the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche is the OnStar system, which is triggered when a crash occurs. If there is a crash, emergency support is dispatched to the location of the Avalanche based on the GPS of the onboard OnStar system.

Driving Experience

Despite the fact that the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche is a rather large vehicle, it still drives with relative ease. Maneuvering on slick pavement is made even easier with the stability control system intact. It does drive as a V-8 engine should drive with enough power to make it up hills even when towing large items. The towing assist feature makes this even easier. The truck has approximately 322 horsepower and gets an estimated fuel mileage of 17/22 mpg city/highway.

Overall, the driving experience is great for towing and handling any job necessary. It does not take turns too tightly due to its wide turning radius, yet it is more than sufficient when compared to other trucks on the market.

STEERING:COLUMN LOCKING:ANTI-THEFT DEVICE
Summary
General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado HD, Silverado LD, Suburban, and Tahoe; and GMC Savana, Sierra HD, Sierra LD, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles, manufactured between November 7, 2012, through December 18, 2012, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect", and FMVSS No. 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention." The vehicles may have been built with a fractured park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly.
Consequences
As a result, the vehicle may shift from Park with the ignition key removed or the ignition key in the OFF position. The vehicle may also shift out of Park without application of the brake pedal while the key is off. Either of these scenarios may cause the vehicle to roll away after the driver has exited the vehicle, resulting in a possible vehicle crash and/or injury.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and replace the steering column as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on January 21, 2013. Chevrolet owners may call 1-800-630-2438. Cadillac owners may call 1-866-982-2339. GMC owners may call 1-866-996-9463.
