Chevrolet Avalanche was a success when it was launched for the first time. The 4-door pickup was launched back in September 2001 and only one year later, it was awarded as the 2002 Model Year. However, in 2013, Chevrolet decided to discontinue the pickup because the sales were too low. However, we are now seeing a new increase on the demand for new pickups and this might bring the Chevrolet Avalanche back in the upcoming year.
The new 2018 Chevrolet Avalanche should be smaller than the last version. However, this won’t mean they are sacrificing the interior of the pickup.
