Chevrolet Avalanche Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    SO Metallic is an available color. txyank must have seen a Northface Edition, available in Sage Green.

    I have saw Avs of every color available when I bought mine. They all pretty much match up to what they show at CHEVY web site for the AV.

    The Northface Sage Green color is nice but I did not need the NF package or want to pay for it either. Now the seats are really nice but I was afraid of the stitching coming loose over time of getting in and out.

    If I remember correctly all the colors have some metallic in the paint except the BLACK.

    The Sunset Orange IMO only looked good at dusk when the sun was setting. I just did not like it any other time and yes I went to a bunch of dealerships at all hours to look at the AV before I bought mine.

    BTW mine is the Light Metallic Pewter. Looks clean and I find the gray of the cladding blends in better.

    BLACK RED & WHITE are not metallic.

    Man go look at the Chevy web site! The Olympic Av is really nice looking! Very nice!
  • 'bout a bus ticket ;-) I've been searching a ticket from Springfield, MO...expensive to Austin. I agree with the Pewter logic....
    I've narrowed it down to Victory Red (named after Nebraska Red) & Pewter...for the ease of care and less contrast with the cladding. Blue met is the coolest but they all look dusty on the lots. Orange is...well orange, enough said...sorry Z28 but no self respecting college student should wear orange to play football. Now if I can just get down there...maybe Santa will load it up and leave it in the garage...
  • Ouch! I think we still own NU in the Big XII (3-1). :-) Just take care of business with Miami and keep the Sears trophy in the Big XII.

    So are you buying from Capitol?
  • I have the same truck at 3 dealers...Austin (Capital), Lufkin and Durant Ok...not sure if I can buy anything in Sooner country...might be cursed. Cap has the best price...26,891 (31,800 msrp). BTW did they add any fees to the sale price? I just can't figure out how to get down there to get it. Hope to have it in the garage by Christmas. BTW my brother-in-law is a big wig at our huge Chevy Dealer in town and the best he could get on this rig is 28,400...and he is 4th in command! GO BIG XII...See you next year UT.

    in Arlington TX, had an ad this past weekend for $7500 off a AV stickered at $37K!! I think I will try and call them to see if there is a catch.
  • I just got a call from a dealer in TX...$6000 off 2wd Z66. $31800 msrp ($25,889-$1000GMCard-$500 Talkitup = $24389) A total of $7411 off sticker. He said a new $1000 rebate to the customer came out. (atleast $500 dealer rebate). I am going to get mine before the end of the year.
  • Does anybody know if the 500.00 customer cash is usable with the 0% financing? And whether or not the advertising fees are negotiable.(I am in the New York area) Dealer says this is part of the dealers invoice.PLEASE HELP ME!!!I am going in this weekend. Thanks!!!
  • timfarntimfarn Posts: 289
    I did not pay the 1% the dealer was asking. The fee is also rebated by the mfr., similar to holdback. I pointed out how much advertising they had to do to get me into the showroom (no "change for a dollar" or any advertising at the time). This is a good opportunity to ask to see the invoice. If it appears on the mfr. invoice, ask when they receive the payback from the mfr.
  • The GM website states that there is 0% intrest PLUS and additional $1000 rebate to qualified buyers, so it seems to me that they can be used together, and if the dealer says you can't just tell them I said it was OK.

    I picked up my K1500 with Z71, convenience package and heat leather seats for $1600 below Kelly Blue Book invoice value. I did have to take what was on the lot: no transfers, no orders. Hence the leather heated seats in So CA!
  • Picked up my AV. two days ago. Black w/gray cloth,Z-71,conv. pkg.,WOL tires,3.73:1,
    MINUS-4,233.00 off msrp
    MINUS-1,000.00 rebate
    MINUS-2,385.00 gm card earnings
    TOTAL=27,960 plus tax and tags.
    PLUS I GOT THE 0.0% FINANCING (3 yrs.)
    By the way,I had some doubts about buying this vehicle(cladding,weight,gear ratios,radical looks,Z-71 susp.).
    But let me tell you this ride is AWESOME!!,the looks are growing on me very rapidly to the point where other trucks look way too plain and simple.
    3.73:1's are fine,5300-plenty of power,tranny is extremely smooth,the Z-71 susp. and agressive tires are unbelievably smooth and quiet.King of the road type feel.
    GOOD LUCK!!!
  • Got ours for $6.336.00 under sticker. Fully equipped Z-66 except luggage carrier. Also got the GM extended warranty for 72 months/75k miles for $1300. I think they got to us on the warranty, but didn't complain since I thought the discount on the AV was pretty good. First tank of gas was around 18.8 (half city/half highway), and yes, I took it very easy for the first 500. We also took advantage of the 0% financing. Its a cool unit.
  • The sticker was $38,571 for the 1500 4WD Z71, however I managed to get my Av at the actual dealer invoice amount. It helps to know people at the dealership. My Av has all the options and I added a molded bug deflector in summit white, black headlight covers, Z71 billet hitch plug, black aluminum billet grill and a K&N FIPK Generation II Kit.
  • Where did you pick up the billet grill?
  • At

    Item number 41263 Billet Grille -- Black $139.95
  • Delivery tomorrow...MSRP 32610 Z66 Red/Tan with Luggage rack and assist steps. Invoice (28485)-2002 Customer cash - 1000 GMCard = $25483 OTD Over $7000 off sticker with no bogus charges.(It helps to have a brother in charge dealers money). Actually had a better deal before Christmas but couldn't get to Austin to get it ;-[ I know the 0% is over but is going 5.44% 60 months. Hopefully I will have a trouble free unit as I tend to keep my vehicles a long time.
  • Congratulations. Took you long enough.

    Damn, you robbed me out of my $100 referral fee. :-)
