The truck market is getting more and more popular and despite Chevy already has a pretty solid lineup, there is always space for something more. Allegedly, the 2020 Chevy Avalanche is about to come back. I wonder why Chevy needs two models in the same size. Unlike the Silverado, which is primarily a working machine, this one will rather come oriented to comfort. As you probably know, the Silverado’s twin, GMC Siera comes with a pretty luxurious Denali trim in the offer.
Chevy doesn’t have such a vehicle. This is where we see the new 2020 Chevy Avalanche. Latest reports are suggesting its comeback, though we are still waiting to hear something from the officials. Therefore, the upcoming paragraphs are nothing more than speculations and rumors, so take them with a reserve.
How Would 2020 Chevy Avalanche Look Like?
The Avalanche has been gone for almost six years. Last time we saw it, it was a pretty big truck, with 221 inches in wheelbase. Therefore, we may presume that the new one will also be enormous in terms of size. Still, we don’t expect so tight relationship with the Silverado as you would presume. The new 2020 Chevy Avalanche would be more luxurious, more comfort-oriented.
Therefore, we presume it will share more parts with the upcoming Suburban. This could include a new rear suspension design as well. Allegedly, we will see an independent rear suspension, which would definitely have a highly positive impact on driving characteristics, comfort and much more.
Of course, there is no doubt that the new model will adopt Chevy’s latest design solutions. That means it will ride on the company’s T1 platform. Benefits from it are numerous, especially if we consider that a whole production cycle passed since the discontinuation. Compared to the previous model, the new one will be significantly lighter and efficient. Also, it could easily become even bigger and feature full 225 inches in wheelbase, if we can rely on rumors.
In terms of the styling, one thing is for sure – we definitely won’t see single cab layouts and other features that are typical for working machines. We will rather see a spacious, crew-cab cabin, with a lot of comforts, notably more compared to the Silverado. As you may presume, the cargo bed would suffer in this case but after all, that’s the catch with the Avalanche. Styling-wise, we have no doubt that the new 2020 Chevy Avalanche will be fitted to the brand’s newest design language.
We count on the same front face as on the upcoming Suburban, though with a plethora of distinctive details. Some reports even suggest that the new Avalanche could borrow the front end from Silverado’s HD models.
2020 Chevy Avalanche Engines
Since it will ride on a new T1 platform, we can easily conclude which engines would be in consideration for the new 2020 Chevy Avalanche. We are pretty sure that the company will stick to eight cylinders. Therefore, count on two familiar units. Base versions should come with a 5.3-liter V8, which delivers around 355 horsepower. On the other side, higher trims will probably come with a familiar 6.2-liter unit, which currently delivers around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
Another important thing to mention is the transmission. Both engines should come with a new 10-speed automatic gearbox.
2020 Chevy Avalanche Release Date and Price
Keep in mind that this comeback is just a rumor at the moment, so we won’t speculate about some more precise 2020 Chevy Avalanche release date, as it is still uncertain will the new model even come.
Same goes for the 2020 Chevy Avalanche price.
