When it was first introduced in 2001, some loved the idea of a half truck and half SUV style of the Chevy Avalanche, but other found it just unpleasing to the eye. At any rate, it found love to the many weekend warriors of the suburbia. Fast track that to 2012, and you got the era of rising fuel cost, General Motors has decided to put it back in the coffer. The company is bidding farewell to the last of its kind with the 2013 Black Diamond Avalanche.
“More than 580,000 Avalanches have been sold since its introduction in 2001, and Avalanche has won major awards and recognitions throughout its run,” said Mark Clawson, Avalanche marketing manager. “So it is only fitting that Avalanche retires on a high note.”
GM is going all out with the 2013 Black Diamond Avalanche, which will feature new body-color trim work, unique decals, and more high-tech equipment. For the LT trim, it now comes with a rear-view camera as standard, while the LS trim gets rear park assist, power adjustable pedals, fog lights, and a remote start system as standard equipment. Best of all, the price for the base model 2013 Black Diamond Avalanche will be cut down by $2,500 as a way of saying “thank you” to all of its fans. This means that the final MSRP will be $35,980, excluding the $995 destination fee.
Unlike Honda’s persistent to revitalize the futile Honda Ridgeline, GM has come to its senses by discontinuing the Chevy Avalanche with respect, the vehicle that once considered versatile in its era. With that, we bid farewell to the Chevy Avalanche too. Hopefully, one day it will rise out of the ashes into something monumental.
