Chevrolet will launch a final Avalanche model which will celebrate the vehicle’s production end.
After General Motors has announced that the Chevrolet Avalanche won’t be manufactured anymore, the company said that a final version, named the 2013 Black Diamond Avalanche, will celebrate the production end. According to the automaker, the 2013 Chevrolet Black Diamond Avalance will come with unique badging on the sail panel, body-colored bed surrounds and lower prices for the whole lineup.
“More than 580,000 Avalanches have been sold since its introduction in 2001, and Avalanche has won major awards and recognitions throughout its run. So it is only fitting that Avalanche retires on a high note”, said the Avalanche marketing manager, Mark Clawson.
The 2013 Chevrolet Black Diamond Avalanche is coming with fog lamps, power adjustable pedals, rear park assist, rear view camera and remote start as standard for the LS models, while the LT will add a rear camera. The two-wheel drive Avalanche LS has a starting price of 35,980 USD, plus a 995 USD dealer freight charge. The Avalanche is based on the full-size GM SUV platform which is offering a maximum towing capacity of 8,100 pounds or 3,674 kg. The Black Diamond Avalanche will become available at dealers across the country this year.
