"What a ride! I looked at a Caddy DTS, Caddy EST and the Avalanche. I knew whatever I chose would have to have everything, ride comfortably, and be good to look at in the driveway. The 2008 LTZ does it all! Mine is Ruby Red Metallic and is a classy-looking ride;a luxurious ride, great sound from the Sat radio and Bose sound system. Riding high over the traffic I can see up ahead for any hazards. I am getting 19mph average with both highway and a little city traffic. The LTZ seems to cry out "take me on a road trip" each time I get behind the wheel. Love it!"
"Really liked my 2003 Av, my 2007 is alot nicer but the 8 to 4 cyl cut is marketing BS. The 03 got abot 1-1.5 MPG better than the 07.
If you want comfort and versatility the Av is for you. I hauled an 8ft sofa and closed the tailgate.
Save your dough on the nav system- it has directed me to wrong locations, once the novelty wore off I seldom use."
"If this truck was advertised with all the options that you could do, haul 4x8 sheets of whatever, enclosed and locked up, bed is watertight, seating for six, tons of room, Ford would loose sails on their F-150"
