Chevy is ready to bring back the old nameplate Avalanche, according to the latest media reports. The new renderings are available, and the forthcoming 2022 Chevy Avalanche will differ in many things from its predecessor.
First of all, it looks much attractive, and it sports the same fascia design as the all-new Chevy Suburban. Besides the identical fascia design, the next-gen Avalanche should sit on the same GM T1 vehicle architecture and an independent rear suspension. If you are a fan of this pickup truck, expect its debut later in the year.
2022 Chevy Avalanche Changes
As we mentioned, the new 2022 Chevy Avalanche won’t look like its predecessor, which is certain according to the new renderings. First of all, the next-generation will get a total overhaul and numerous upgrades compared to the previous generation. The renderings reveal an attractive and up to date sportier styling, featuring more sharper lines.
Interestingly, the new Avalanche comes as a four-door variant, dominating on the front. Generally, the front fascia is similar to Suburban’s, featuring the same grille and headlights. Nevertheless, we should expect better design on upper trim levels, and unique high-performance versions might also be offered. The standard pickup truck comes with 17-inch wheels, while larger wheels are available optionally or standard on upper trims.
Interior Appearances and Trim Specs
The new 2022 Chevy Avalanche will offer the same modern cabin as the Suburban model. It should be available with four different trim levels. Chevrolet is a known manufacturer that makes practical cabins with plenty of the latest technology. So, expect Avalance that will not be an exception. The entry-level pickup will be equipped standardly with dual-zone climate control, USB ports, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth.
However, more premium materials and techs are available on the upper trims. That includes leather upholstery, heating seats, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot. Reportedly, Avalanche will also get more safety equipment and driver-assistance features than the Suburban.
2022 Chevy Avalanche Engine Rumors
At this time, the manufacturer didn’t release any information regarding the 2022 Chevy Avalanche engine. From some rumors, it might be available with three engine options. The most likely candidate is a proven 5.3-liter V8 that generates 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque.
The next one will probably be stronger and may indicate a 6.2-liter V8. This version will most likely provide more output and better performance. Some rumors are writing about the hybrid version with a standard AWD system, and we are hoping that it will come true. The 8-speed automatic transmission is very certain, and we can expect an excellent towing capacity.
Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2022 Chevy Avalanche has not yet been officially announced. However, according to multiple news, the forthcoming model might debut later this year.
Besides better styling, if we can believe in the renderings, the new Chevy Avalanche will also feature more upscale materials. Generally, this is an iconic pickup truck, and we should expect the same amount or even better features than on the Suburban model. As for the price, a range between $30,000 and $40,000 is acceptable.
