Chevy has recently introduced the new generation of the light-duty Silverado 1500 and mid-size Colorado is also closing to the mid-cycle update. The new Silverado 1500 is thoroughly redesigned with the new aesthetics, improved structure, larger proportions, more tech and diesel-powered version. So, Chevy is doing well in the pickup market and the things should also become better thanks to the newest upgrades.
But beside the all-new Silverado and expectation of the refreshed Colorado have been in the news lately, we also encountered on the rumors that Chevy might return the Avalanche to the market. This truck version used the platform shared with GM’s full-size trucks and SUVs from that time but also had several unique solutions. The mid-gate deigns divided the cargo box from the interior and when folded down the access to almost full-size cargo bed was opened. Chevy also added extra cladding on the model to make more difference between other brand’s trucks but this made some problems and later versions removed it. The Avalanche left production after the 2013 model versions.
Now, the rumors suggesting that new generation of this truck could appear as the 2019 Chevy Avalanche. However, GM hasn’t commented on this rumor. We haven’t also seen the prototype models on roads as well as other hints that this model is closing to the production.
What are the chances of the 2019 Chevy Avalanche?
The pickup truck industry in the US continues to grow and new models will continue appearing. We already have several confirmed models and the mid-size Ford Ranger returned recently. Tesla also promised the first all-electric truck and Atlas SUV could also get the truck version.
But when we are speaking about the 2019 Chevy Avalanche, we don’t have any significant hint about its arrival. Chevy has been busy in recent years with the redesign of the several SUV models and also was working on the new-generation, light-duty Silverado. We know that GM is now testing the new-generation of the heavy-duty models which could appear for the 2020 model year. The mid-size Colorado should also get the mid-cycle update soon.
On the other hand, Chevy also expanded the range of the new Silverado and buyers can now choose between more versions.
Considering all, we don’t expect to see the 2019 Chevy Avalanche or even the return of this model at any time soon. The new version of this model would surely be conflicting with the sales of Chevy’s other trucks and the question is what could the new version offer to attract new buyers which they can’t satisfy with diverse options available in brand’s other trucks and SUVs.
