2019 Chevy Avalanche Comeback Rumors

10

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.

  1. Ive been waiting for the Avalanche come on GM

  2. Bring it back, love these vehicles!

  3. Being it back. Been waiting for many years to bring back the best truck ever needed and wanted. There really is no other truck needed when you have it all in one.

    1. true…i have been waiting also.

  4. I just bought a 2007 Avalanche, and I love him way better than the 2010 Chevy HHR that I traded in for him. I just wish that I could have afforded a newer model. This is no doubt the BEST truck I have ever owned. I wish that I could have been the original owner. So I could have cherished him from day one. There have been a few modifications done to him that I am working on putting back to factory specs. His name is Beau, the HHR’s name was Harley. I am a VERY HAPPY owner. Marilyn Z.

  5. I hope the rumors of the Chevy Avalanche comeback are true ! The Avalanche is one of the best looking trucks on the market but it is a vehicles that you can take to any venue, be to meet the Queen /President , or wedding , to work or just for fun like camping and if you were to fall on hardtimes , god forbid you could actually live in it ! And its a beautiful truck/ SUV/ Car all in one and the best vehicle on the market ever!!! And whomever drives it looks good doing it LoL. I love the Chevy Avalanche and hope to own one one day, it is one of my dream cars as is the Chevy Cameron . they are the best things you ever put on the market ! Thank you for those two rides Chevrolet! Sincerely Carolyn M. Pugh

  6. What a truck, hope it’s on the way

  7. The best thing about my avalanche is it is the best truck/car/SUV I have ever owned. I have owned new chevy trucks since early 1980’s – including two avalanche’s.
    The avalanche I own now has 160,000 miles on it and still runs like a champ. It is time for me to buy a new avalanche. Please build one for me and all my friends.
    I have lots of people that have asked me to priomise not to sell my avalanche without letting them have first-right-of-refusal. This happens about 3 times a week.

  8. My ’03 model is getting up there. Hurry up! I don’t want to settle for a Sierra Denali

  9. I wanted an Avalanche in ’02 but I was ‘persuaded’ to buy a 2002 Silverado because, at the time, my opinion was considered irrelavent by my narcissistic alcoholic ‘EX’. The Silverado was and still is a good truck. It had around 45000 miles on it when I left that ‘gulf coast life’ in ’07; I had to have the transmission rebuilt in 2011 at 100,075 miles and it’s still running strong today with 240K miles!! I never planned on driving that truck for SIXTEEN+ YEARS, but I’m so fortunate and grateful that Chevy builds quality products!! When fate afforded me the opportunity last year to acquire a different ride, the ‘discontinued’ Avalanche was still my first choice. To me, a 5-year-old Avalanche trumps a NEW car ANY day. After months of searching, I bought a beautiful, 2-owner 2013 Black Diamond LTZ Avalanche from a retired couple in northern Arkansas. It’s in perfect condition, with only 57K miles!!. It was the personal vehicle of the owner of the local dealership before they bought it. I plan to drive my Avalanche for the rest of my life!! Thank you, Chevy!! BTW, my hubby loves his 2007 Avalanche as well but was very excited to learn that Avalanche is back in production!
