According to the various reports, company have in plant to bring back this truck, as 2018 Chevy Avalanche. As you may know, this is a full-size pickup truck, which company produced in two generations. Original model came in 2001, while second generation came in 2007. Finally, production ended in 2013. Company never announced official reason for discontinuation, but we believe that main reason were low sales. Suddenly, rumors about its comeback appeared. According to the various reports, this truck will come back, maybe even next year as 2018 Avalanche. When it is about technical details, we expect that new model will continue to be based on Suburban. However, you should take all these with big reserve.
2018 Chevy Avalanche redesign
As we already mentioned, it is rumored that 2018 Chevy Avalanche is coming back. Exact details are unknown and we must rely on our prediction and some speculations. It this comeback happen, we believe that new model will continue in the pretty much same way as previous. It will ride on the same platform as Suburban and share most of the parts. As you know, company already has a truck of this size in lineup. It is Chevy Silverado. However, these two models will be quite different. The 2018 Chevy Avalanche will probably be a little bit longer, and with a different configuration. It will come as 4-door truck, with two rows of seats.
It will have bigger cabin, but smaller bed on the other side. Its design should be similar to the legendary Suburban, but with exception that there won’t be a third row of seats. Instead, we will see a cargo bed, which will be much smaller, compared to Silverado.

When it is about engines, we believe that 2018 Chevy Avalanche will come with the same powertrain as Suburban, which is available with only one engine. It is a 5.3 liter EcoTec V8, which came updated recently, and now has better efficiency. Total output of this engine is around 355 horsepower, which max torque is 383 pound-feet. When it is about transmission, this engine comes in pair with 6-speed automatic. Despite plenty of power, it also has decent fuel economy, which goes somewhere around 18 mpg in combined drive.
