Chevrolet Avalanche for Sale in Nigeria
The Chevrolet Avalanche is a pickup truck which was manufactured by American automobile company General Motors, between 2002 and 2012, and in 2013, it was the Chevrolet Black Diamond Avalanche. The Chevrolet Avalanche was built based on the Chevrolet’s full-size trucks and SUVs, hence shared many features with them, the most being underpinnings and powertrains. “The Mid gate” feature makes the Chevrolet Avalanche a “Jack of all trades” in the pick-up truck league, and offers a wide range of facilities. In Nigeria, the Chevrolet Avalanche would be seen once in a while, as it is not exactly a practical vehicle for the common Nigerian family. Also, some people just buy the vehicle because it’s different from what you see on the Nigerian road. I suppose the people who purchase this vehicle also utilise the pick-up facilities, and it’s not a bad looking SUV also. In the market for a pre-owned Chevrolet Avalanche? We at Carmudi offer a generous listing of some of the cheapest and best conditioned Chevrolet Avalanche available for sale in Nigeria.
What to know when buying Chevrolet Avalanche
Performance and Specifications of Chevrolet Avalanche
All models of the Chevrolet Avalanche were initially fitted with a 5.3-liter V8 engine which produced 320 horsepower and 340 pound-feet of torque and were in four wheel drive trains. A little while afterwards, a 6.0-liter V8 with 366 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque became an optional trim between 2007-2009. As much as the power changed over the years, it really did not affect real life driving experience. With regards to transmission, a four – speed automatic was standard, and the introduction of the six-speed transmission in 2009 became standard also. This new transmission assisted in achieving a fuel economy of 23 mpg, as to the previous 18 mpg on the four speed transmission. The Chevrolet Avalanche has an impressive towing capacity of 8,000 pounds, and this outclasses many of the pick-up trucks in its class.
How is the design of Chevrolet Avalanche
The cabin of the Chevrolet Avalanche has the capacity to sit a total of six passengers, and when more cargo space is required, the back seat of the Chevrolet Avalanche could be collapsed to accommodate more cargo. The upholstery for this pick-up truck usually came in cloth, while leather was offered in the higher trim levels. Other facilities offered were rear seat entertainment, a Bose audio system and wireless mobile connection. The 2007 – 2013 year of production of the Chevrolet Avalanche offers a sleek exterior with detailed and sharp styling unlike the older first generation build. This does not suggest that the first generation build was not also a brilliant design. It actually appeals to some other users to have the first generation build with the second generation improvements. In general, the exterior design of the Chevrolet Avalanche is mature, rugged and stylish. What a combination.
What are the standout features of the Chevrolet Avalanche?
Unlike regular pick-up trucks, the Chevrolet Avalanche has an open bed feature, which allows it open up to the back seat, allowing more rear cargo space. It does this with a folding back seat panel (which is officially known as a mid-gate), and removable rear windows. This makes the buyer of the pickup not have to make the difficult choice of choosing between a two seater or five seater pick-up.
Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Chevrolet Avalanche in Nigeria
Although no longer in production, a wide range of tokunbo (foreign used) and Nigerian used Chevrolet Avalanche for sale are available in the Nigerian automobile market, at very attractive prices.

The Best Chevrolet Avalanche year to Buy
Between the only two generations produced, we would suggest that due to technological improvements, the second generation build of the Chevrolet Avalanche would be the best year(s) to buy. Preferably, the 2013 Chevrolet Black Diamond Avalanche would be the perfect version, as the people at General Motors made it a farewell version, offering impressive tweaks and advanced technology. This does not however suggest that the other years of manufacture are not also brilliant builds as the 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche is definitely another year model to check out.

Overall impression of Chevrolet Avalanche
Only two generations saw the light of day, but both generations are still in use till this day. Some vehicles come and go, but the Chevrolet Avalanche came, and is staying a while longer than expected. Rivalled by the Honda Ridgeline, it has shown unrivalled tenacity, power and efficiency, as well as multiple functionality.
