Chevrolet Avalanche to Cease Production
Chevrolet will end production of the Avalanche pickup after the 2013 model-year, the company announced.
The truck, which features a crew-cab/short cargo box design, was introduced for the 2002 model-year. More than 580,000 have been sold during the truck’s production run, according to Avalanche marketing manager Mark Clawson.
For its final year, a rear camera, rear park assist, power adjustable pedals, fog lamps and remote start will be added as standard equipment on LS models, while LT models will get the standard rear camera.
Also, a special edition Black Diamond Avalanche will be available that features body-colored bed surrounds, unique badges and more additional features.
The base price for a two-wheel drive Avalanche LS is $ 35,980, Chevrolet said.
