Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevrolet Avalanche.

Billed by Chevrolet as the "Ultimate Utility Vehicle" the new 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche is both a full size SUV and pickup truck. The 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche transforms from a 4 door 5/6 passenger SUV with a small pickup bed to a 2/3 passenger truck with a full-sized 8'1" bed. This transformation is possible by the "midgate" which acts as a tailgate separating the rear seats from the cargo bed - to go from SUV to pickup - simply fold down the rear seats and lower the midgate onto the folded down seats, the rear window can also be removed and stowed onboard.

Available Models
The 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche is available in two series - the Avalanche 1500 series and the Avalanche 2500 series. The most notable difference between the two lines are the engines. The 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 series uses a 5.3-litre V8 that supplies 285 horsepower while the 2500 series comes equiped with an 8.1L V8 capable of delivering 340 horsepower.

For outdoor enthusiasts Chevrolet has added The North Face Edition Avalanche to the 1500 series. It comes with an exclusive green/black leather interior, white instrument cluster and is available with a Sage Green exterior.
