The all-new 2022 Chevy Avalanche is coming back, this time, with a completely new design, very modern interior, and powerful engine lineup. Reviving old nameplates has become popular in the last couple of years. Almost every automotive brand is returning iconic models from the past and Chevrolet is no different.
The Avalanche pickup is making a comeback, but it is too early to know everything about this pickup truck. At this moment, we have rendering images, but the spy shots are not available yet. You can read a lot of rumors about Avalanche its return. The most reliable reports are suggesting how the new Avalanche could look like, which platform is in use and how many engine options will be on offer.
2022 Avalanche Redesign
The 2022 Chevy Avalanche will use the brand’s familiar GM T1 architecture. This platform supports the rear independent suspension, which is great to hear. On the other hand, the 2022 Avalanche won’t be based on its predecessor. Whatsoever, this new pickup will share almost nothing with its previous generation, well, except the name of course. Unfortunately, we don’t know that much about its new design, but we do have first renderings.
The rendering photos are showing a pickup with a sportier character. We think it is a very attractive pickup with sharper lines and modern styling. Chevrolet will surely opt for the four-door configuration. The front fascia will borrow a lot of things from the Suburban full-size SUV. That includes the headlights and the grille, but also some other elements. We expect to see numerous trim levels and special editions, so let’s just wait for Chevrolet to reveal more details.
On the inside, this pickup truck will also borrow a lot of stuff from the Suburban SUV. The 2022 Chevy Avalanche will reportedly arrive in four trim levels, including the famous Denali variant. The cabin will be practical, with plenty of space, including both headroom and legroom. But the focus is on the modern design and newest high-tech features.
No doubt, Avalanche will offer an SUV-like interior with new displays, USB-C ports, and dual-zone climate control. Moreover, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, navigation, and Bluetooth will be standard. The range-topping trim levels will provide leather upholstery, sunroof, Wi-Fi, and other luxury amenities.
Two Potent V8 Engines Under the Hood
The forthcoming 2022 Chevy Avalanche will reportedly deploy larger engines, which comes as a surprise. Anyway, a 5.3-liter V8 engine will be on offer as standard. This powertrain option is capable of producing 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. A 6.2-liter V8 will be optional and it will generate 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of twisting power.
This is not official yet, but we can also find a lot of rumors regarding the hybrid powertrain. This is another reasonable outcome, whether if it’s a regular or plug-in hybrid variant. Lastly, Chevrolet will offer a standard eight-speed automatic transmission.
2022 Chevy Avalanche Price, Release Date
When it comes to price, the 2022 Chevy Avalanche will cost around $31,000. Chevrolet will launch its new pickup truck in the first half of 2022. This means the manufacturer will reveal more information in the coming months.
