2016 Chevrolet Avalanche Release Date, Price, Specs, Engine – The new vehicle is now set to debut with a couple of wonderful changes and a perfect design that are designed to make it one of the auto industry best. A point of view are the common engines which have now been ceased by the Avalanche automaker, despite the fact that the new vehicle is among the most comfort-prioritised vehicle.
This vehicle is undoubtedly a pick-up that has eagerly been waited and everyone including its skeptics. It is a four door SUV that will have enough capacity to handle up to 6-passengers. The last generation of the 2016 Chevrolet Avalanche ended back in 2003, when its automaker decided to withdraw the Chevy Avalanche entirely from the market henceforth.
In its entire production life, the model has only been in the market in two generations and the upcoming new vehicle will be expected to start the third generation. It is interesting to mention that the sales pegged on the Avalanche were a mere 2%, which is downright disappointing.
Therefore, the task ahead of the new 2016 Chevrolet Avalanche will be quite laborious since it will require many redesigns and modifications in order to overcome the dwindling sales rolling over to the next vehicle. In light of this, the upcoming Avalanche has to stand out in terms of attractiveness, fuel efficiency and driving dynamics.
Competition for the Avalanche Concept
The design engineers have targeted some well-known brands which should be set to compete against the Avalanche. In mind are the Ford F-150, Nissan Titan and Dodge RAM 1500. The Ford F-150 for instance comes in three cab styles which include the Regular Cab, SuperCab and SuperCrew.
Its most fascinating feature is the incredible 12,200lbs. Towing capacity. The Avalanche will have to be smart in order enough to shift attention to itself, and this includes providing several engines with improved performance that will outperform many of its target rivals.
Price & Release date – 2016 Chevrolet Avalanche
The release date of the new 2016 Chevrolet Avalanche is expected to be somewhere in the spring of next year (2016). Also the price details are shrouded in obliqueness, but will not differ with a larger margin to the current one which goes for around 26,000 USD.

After posting such embarrassing sales figures, the new vehicle will most assuredly come with better interior and exterior specs. No one really knows how the Avalanche will look since there has been no official announcement from the company so far. However, this review will exhaust all the possibilities of what we should be expecting.
Years have gone by, and the progress of the auto engineering world has improved. The new 2016 Chevrolet Avalanche will have to include very important updates on its performance specs in order to meet contemporary market demands.
The construction of the vehicle should make use of lightweight materials which will boost its fuel economy ratings and stability especially at top speeds.
Up front, the new Avalanche is expected to feature redesigned grille and headlights. The headlights must infuse LED technology, chrome details should also be forthcoming due to the fact that the details have become a defining factor that differentiate new trucks from old ones.
The rear end will also feature some futuristic designs especially on the taillights, bumper and tailgate. The overall body should be modern and aerodynamically aligned.
Its interior, on the other hand, will come with updated upholstery features. Almost every segment of the Avalanche will need a revamp and this includes the safety, convenience and control features. The trim levels are not expected to alter much and will be the same LS, LT and LTS versions similar to the first generation model.
2016 Chevrolet Avalanche – Engine specs
The new vehicle, according to well-placed sources, will come with the same Vortec engine that is also found on the current version in the market. It is a 5.3L V8 engine which will be able to generate up to 355 hp, which is considerably higher than in the previous model.
The highest trim model of this vehicle will come fitted with a Vortec Max engine which is able to generate a maximum power output of around 366 horsepower and 376 pounds of torque.
The said engines will most probably be powered by a six-speed Hydra-Matic transmission system, and will either come with a 2WD or a 4WD system. The expected EPA fuel ratings according to some sources, will be unbelievably sickening, but we hope they will remain as rumours only.
The alleged ratings are 15/22 mpg in the city/highway.
