Competition in every segment of the automotive industry is getting bigger and bigger, so it’s no wonder that even established manufacturers are compelled to constantly offer something new. Chevy is in the same positions and, in order to improve their already great sales results, plans to re-introduce another familiar nameplate. This time, it is about 2019 Chevy Avalanche.
According to the latest reports, there is a big chance to see this model back on the market soon. To remind you, this model was in production between 2001 and 2013. For those 12 years, we have seen two generations of it. Both versions were heavily based on the famous Suburban. So, we have no doubt that the new 2019 Avalanche will go in the same directions. This means a stretched wheelbase, with a focus on spacious interior and plenty of comforts.
2019 Chevy Avalanche Comeback
It looks like GM is about to bring back a familiar nameplate after a 5-year hiatus. This model was discontinued in 2013, due to slow sales. This time, the company want to take another try, but with the much better approach. So far, there is no official confirmation, nor reliable insider reports about the new model. So, we must rely on rumors at the moment. Of course, there is plenty of room for speculations. Still, one thing remains certain. The new 2019 Chevy Avalanche will be in a close relation with the upcoming next-generation Suburban.
2019 Chevy Avalanche Design
Speaking of the base design, the 2019 Chevy Avalanche will have a lot in common with models like Chevy Suburban and GMC Yukon XL. The two SUVs about to come pretty soon and will adopt the GM’s new T1 architecture, which brings benefits in many aspects, including significant weight savings. Of course, this will be a stretched version of the platform that debuted with the new-generation Silverado recently. The 2019 Chevy Avalanche will be a very large truck, larger than Silverado. Besides a wheelbase, other dimensions will be bigger as well. Unlike the Silverado, this truck will put more focus on comfort than on working capabilities. This primarily refers to the cabin design. This truck will come with a large cabin, but cargo bed also won’t be sacrificed, due to the extra-long wheelbase.
2019 Chevy Avalanche Styling
When it comes to the visual appearance, it is still early to talk about more specific details. For now, we can say that the new 2019 Chevy Avalanche will feature the brand’s newest design language, something that we’ve seen on the recently redesigned Silverado 1500. Still, we don’t have any doubt that the new truck will come with lots of distinctive details. However, we will have to wait to see how the new Suburban will look like first.
2019 Chevy Avalanche Interior
The cabin of the 2019 Chevy Avalanche largely depends on the new Suburban too. The two models will probably feature the same dashboard layout, which should be upgraded in many ways compared to the current generation of the legendary SUV. This means a completely new layout, with new styling, new materials and plenty of the latest tech features. In terms of base interior design characteristics, we’ve already mentioned that the cabin of the new truck will be very large. Expect seating capacity of up to six passengers, as well as plenty of leg and headroom in both rows of seating.
2019 Chevy Avalanche Engines
Although Chevy has introduced some brand-new engines, we are pretty sure that the new model will stick to proven, large-displacement units. In practice, this means that we probably won’t see a new 2.7-liter engine that is available in the new Silverado. The unit is pretty efficient. It delivers around 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, which probably won’t be enough for such large and heavy vehicle.
The base engine should be a familiar 5.3-liter V8 engine, which delivers around 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque.
A larger 6.2-liter V8 should be in the offer as well, though exact details are yet to come. Most likely, this engine will come with some slight power boost, so a max power will probably go around 450 horsepower.
When it comes to transmission, we expect to see a new 10-speed automatic as a standard feature.
2019 Chevy Avalanche Release Date and Price
First of all, you must consider that all these details about the new 2019 Chevy Avalanche are nothing more than rumors at the moment. We are still waiting for the official confirmation for this revival. You can find a lot of reports on the internet that suggest the model’s arrival already in the next year. We would recommend you to take these reports with a big reserve.
When it comes to the price, if 2019 Chevy Avalanche arrives, the base version will definitely cost much more compared to base Silverado 1500 models. Most likely, a starting price would be somewhere between 40.000 and 45.000 dollars, if not more.
