I'm not sure, so I won't post, but over the internet I saw some pictures of the 2006 Tahoe and Avalanche. Both rears look the same, and the front looks very good. If any of the hosts would give me permission to post a 2006 Tahoe picture found in Popular Mechanics magazine. It was scanned by a person and I have the web address.

    The Popular Mechanics one is a CGI. There is another pic of the profile of the new Tahoe, which is legit. See the "2005 Silverado Facelift" thread for more info.

    I will not post the Avalanche, because that was a 'spied' picture that might be strictly illegal.

    I don't know how to make it a link...but I'm sure copying & pasting is very easy:

    i like the picture of the Suburban, if that is really it.
  • Hi (if there is anyone out there?.....)

    I fully expect GM to display a production version of the new Avalanche at the Detroit show in January.

    I will be attending, so I will report.

    I would imagine that many photos will appear on the net on this site as well as other vehicle-related sites.

    The Chevrolet Avalance Owners Club site has posted some grainy shots that DO appear to be the new Avalanche. :blush:

    Is it generally believed that the 2007 ava and escalade ext will be longer than the current versions? I read that the suburban will be. If so, how much? I ask be/c we are looking at buying an ava or esc ext and they just fit in our garage now. I not to buy first model year of any new or major re-design vehicle due to inevitable bugs that they tend to have. This is especially true if GM is really 'rushing' these trucks to market.

    These are the first pictures of the Chevrolet Avalanche that I've found.

    That looks good, Chicago will also unveil the Tundra tomorrow. What a show!
  • With the rounded edges and the missing body hardware, it looks more like the Ridgeline. I know that the Avalanche is bigger and tougher. I owned one for a few years but had to weigh education versus gasoline. The main thing that I don't like about the one pictured and those without the body hardware is that you give up the steps molded into the back bumper. Those came in real handy when trying to tie down bulky loads or just getting into the back of the truck when it was on a slope. I wonder how they are adding two inches to the bed and increasing the interior storage without making it longer?
  • Is there any chance that GM will put a deisel in the new Avalanche? Does anyone know why they didn't put a deisel in the first one?
  • for the 2007 model year. If there was going to be a model with a diesel engine I would've expected it to be in a 3/4 ton vehicle first. I don't believe GM currently has a diesel (Duramax?) engine and transmission sized appropriately for the lighter 1/2 ton or smaller vehicles.
  • Mods, do you have any idea when we can expect to see pricing information available on these vehicles here? I've already read of at least one person that claims to have placed an order. (Asking as someone extremely interested in ordering one myself, but who's interested in determining the financial feasibility first, or at least justifying it to my significant other :P ).
  • I read on another Avalanche enthusiast website that optioned out, the new Av. goes past $50k. That seems shockingly high to me. Although I suppose with $12k in rebates and discounts (Like I am seeing in the newspaper right now on 2006 GM trucks), the price could actually be in the high thirties for a well optioned one. For me, although many would consider it blasphemy, I'd rather have a Ridgeline rt AND a mini Cooper, than a $50k Avalanche. Maybe the new Silverado will be better priced.

    Hey, I read that the new ava is 2 in. longer. It's not much and I don't see the need...I have an '05 and it does everything I ask it to do. I LOVE IT!!

    I am considering purchase. Have heard rear hatch is not airtight and water and snow leak inside.
  • "Pricing Announced for 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche, the Industry's Most Flexible Utility Vehicle

    Dallas, Texas -- Chevrolet, America's number one brand, announced pricing today at the Dallas Auto Show for the all-new 2007 Avalanche, the next generation of the industry's most flexible utility vehicle.

    I was looking around at my local Chevrolet dealer and I saw a new Avalanche 2x4 LT, it was nicely equiped and it was under 40 thousand. It had a sunroof, leather interior, wood console/dash trim, and it seemed a lot taller than the 06 Ave as well as being longer.

    AWESOME!! That's the only way I can describe my new '07 LTZ in Sunburst Orange (just like the ads!). I was debating between the '07 and '06 and there really is no comparison. Everything is upgraded, from the interior to the new DispacementOnDemand 5.3. We got every option but the Nav system and the rear-view camera. Still trying to learn everything! Put about 100 miles on it the first day, and it drives like a dream!

    Price Reduction is questionable.. If you make a comparison of 2006 and 2007 Avalanche prices you will find that the MSRP or sticker price is indeed lowered about $2000. Problem is.. the invoice amount or price the factory charges dealers for the vehicle is UNCHANGED. This just limits the amount the dealer can give away in negotiations with the customer with this lower mark-up.. GM still got the same price. They mislead in saying price reduced.
  • Just announced this PM. A $2K trade in incentive along with a $1K dealer rebate on the 07' Avalanche.
  • Anyone know if the 2007 Avalanche comes with a transmission cooler. I looked under the hood of one and it looks like it has the connections from the radiator to the tranny area, but did not get a close look. It comes with a hitch and most vehicle sold with a towing package do have the cooler. Anyone know for sure or do you have to have one installed. Also, what about a break controller?
  • The 4.10 rear end option comes with the transmission cooler. The 3.73 requires the transmission cooler to be checked on the options list if you want it.
