The Avalanche truck could be back. At least, we can hear it in rumors. According to trusted sources, the carmaker is considering to give another chance to this pickup. The 2019 Chevy Avalanche could bring more excitement to this segment of the automotive industry. It used to offer something we couldn’t see elsewhere. Extended body and strong engines made this unit eye-catching. However, world economic crisis hit strong, and discontinuation of Avalanche was imminent.
But now, we wish these rumors to come true. The 2019 Chevy Avalanche would be one of the surprises of the next season. If it brings back its huge engine lineup, truckers could go crazy about it. Well, we can’t expect to see an 8.1-liter powertrain the first generation used. But, who knows. Chevy might deliver something no one is expecting.
When Is The New Chevy Avalanche Coming Out?
Information about the release date of the 2019 Chevy Avalanche is confidential. The company is developing the new truck in silence. However, when engineers enter final phases of development, then we can expect first official news. By then, we can only guess when it is about to happen.
For the next season, Chevrolet already launched new Silverado 1500. Also its heavy-duty sibling Silverado 1500 Kodiak is almost ready. Since other rumors are much quieter, the 2019 Chevy Avalanche could be the next one to be confirmed by the company.
Why Was Chevy Avalanche Discontinued?
World economy crisis was the main reason for discontinuation of many vehicles, not only Avalanche truck. Some cars managed to go through fatal years between 2007 and 2011. Unfortunately, our pickup couldn’t. Its sales dropped to only 20,000 units sold in 2010 and 2011. Next year revival boosted the sales to 26,000. But, it was not enough to keep it alive.
2019 Chevy Avalanche Specs
The 2019 Chevy Avalanche will go strong with engines, as always. Older truckers remember the 8.1-liter V-8 unit for the first-gen trucks. However, the second generation had a big gun as well. So, the new 2019 Avalanche will probably use the biggest displacement Chevrolet is offering. For now, it is a 7.0-liter unit, which is rarely used. With some tuning, it could supply Avalanche with 500+ horses and 470 lb-ft of torque.
Nevertheless, it is more likely that 2019 Chevy Avalanche is getting a 6.2-liter V-8 we can find in Silverado 1500 and GMC Yukon. This drivetrain is good for 420 hp and 460 lb-ft. For extra power, Chevrolet could use a 5.7-liter supercharged V-8 that can make 650 hp Corvette and Camaro.
How Much Can Chevy Avalanche Tow?
Towing capacity of the 2019 Chevy Avalanche will depend on the engine choice. Since the diesel is not an option for the truck, the vehicle is not going to achieve big numbers as some siblings. We would rather expect it to tow maximum 10,000 pounds.
2019 Chevy Avalanche Hybrid
Stories about the Ford F-150 are louder and louder. Ram has announced the mild-hybrid for next season. It is strange why Chevrolet is silent. It is impossible that General Motors is leaving this race without a battle. Some sources are confirming there is an idea. However, bosses would like to see the new name in this segment. Could it be 2019 Chevy Avalanche?
