2018 Chevy Avalanche is Coming Back

It was 2013 when we saw the last new Avalanche truck from Chevrolet. Back in the prime time, this pickup was one of the most popular vehicles in the class. Nevertheless, the company decides to cut its production and make a pause in 2013. Now, fans will be happy to hear that 2018 Chevy Avalanche is coming back.

Many of previous owners asked about the revival of the lineup. Bosses in Chevrolet listen to rumors and it was easy to make the decision to bring Avalanche back. Nevertheless, this truck must suffer complete redesign. It’s been a while since the last model, and innovations in the truck segment are evolving every day. New Chevy Avalanche could take some time to catch up with the competition. But, with an army of fans, it is not going to be too hard to make a breakthrough.

Will Chevy bring back the Avalanche?

We must take all rumors with reserve. However, gossip about the return of the 2018 Chevy Avalanche is true. Nevertheless, there is a catch – it will come under the name Silverado High Desert. We believe fans are not going to grunge about the titles and names. The most important is that their favorite truck is coming out with new interior and exterior.

2018 Chevy Avalanche Concept and Design

Avalanche pickup truck used to share the platform with Chevrolet Tahoe crossover. That made it very attractive and looking cool. Numerous add-ons and extra features are highlights of this vehicle. Nevertheless, after some while, fans had to choose between trucks and crossovers, and it is a battle where SUVs are favorites. Now, 2018 Chevy Avalanche is coming back, but it is going to use another approach. As its new name unveils, Silverado will borrow a platform to Avalanche.

Updates and Exterior

The new 2018 Chevy Avalanche pickup is going to be more functional. Weak performance is one of the reasons why it was cut from production for a while. Nevertheless, its styling was never doubtful. The highlight of 2018 Silverado High Desert is a unique bed. It is versatile and weatherproof. It comes with a cover in three parts for easier mount and unmounts. Extra space could be found on the side walls of the bed. Cargo divider is adjustable, and High Desert truck offers features for a secure lock of the load.

2018 Chevy Avalanche is using a new drivetrain

A 5.3-l V-8 engine is not all-new for Avalanche. It is the last mill that produced energy for this truck. The same drivetrain is very certain for new 2018 Chevy Silverado High Desert. But, it will suffer big returning before it returns. Nevertheless, there are other possibilities with bigger 6.2-l EcoTec V-8 and smaller 4.3-l V-6 units from current Silverado lineup. However, the 2018 Chevy Avalanche must produce enough power to satisfy all needs of its buyers and fans.

  1. I live in Amarillo, Texas….I owned 2 Chevrolet Avalanches, My son still has the used one I bought him in 2009(he has had to put new engine in it and other things things to keep it up and going, it is a 2003). I had a NEW 2009 Avalanche …the summer of 2016 I left town due to a funeral and I came back…
    someone broke into my garage and totaled out the whole electrical system and computer system (I can’t explain all the damage, there was so much). I had it towed to Chevy dealership where I bought it….long story short…the mechanics could NOT fix it , not one machanic, had the education to rewire the whole truck. it would be to dangerous for anyone to. My Insurance company totalled it, and I ask the salesman where the NEW AVALANCHES was they informed me CHEVROLET STOPPED MAKING AVALANCHES!!! I just started crying because mine was in mint condition….so I ended up buying a NEW 2016 Texas Edition Silverado…It is a nice truck but my Avalanche put it to shame. PLEASE TELL ME THE AVALANCHE IS REALLY COMING BACK AND IS STILL ON A SUBURBAN FRAME THAT GIVES IT THAT GREAT RIDE…..The Chevy dealerships here in Amarillo, Texas told me it was just a rumor…The AVALANCHE IS NEVER COMING BACK!!! PLEASE TELL IT IS COMING BACK AND WHEN THEY WILL BE FOR SALE IN AMARILLO ,TEXAS??? Thank You for reading my email.

    • We don’t understand why did Chevrolet cut Avalanche. Many other owners feel like you. We’ve been listening rumors and stories about plans to bring the Avalanche back, but it seems like it won’t happen this season.

      • Can I pre-order the “NEW SILVERADO HIGH DESERT ” ??? they are going to fly off the dealers lots!!! I do NOT want to miss buying one…Even if I have to pre-order and buy straight from chevy factory…

  2. Love our Avalanche but it is a 2013. WE WANT TO BUY ANOTHER ONE! Wake up, Chevrolet! They are in demand. Please start making them again soon.

    • The latest reports say this is not a rumor anymore. Chevrolet is bringing back Avalanche, but probably as 2019 year model.
      We are looking for more details, and as soon as we get verified data, we will write a new review about it. Stay tuned!

  3. I owned two brand new Chevrolet Avalanche’s back in 2003. I would not hesitate to buy a brand new 2018 or 2019. This was the very best SUV/TRUCK that Chevrolet put on the Assembly line. Even the Commercial’s were excellent when being broadcast on television. That caught my eye, and I went to the nearest Chevrolet dealership to buy my brand new 2003 Avalanche. The exterior color was Arrival Blue with dark grey interior.

  4. I owned two Avalanches and I now own a Toyota Tundra, it does not match to the ride and comfort of the Avalanche. Also the convenience of all the security features it had on the truck bed and side rear panels, I waiting for its return..

  5. Yes please bring Avalanche back. I have 554,000 miles on a 2007 and it is still in good condition. I saw the High County Silverado at the dealer and it is not an Avalanche!
