    Default Transfer Families

    I would like to know how many of us have Transfered from the Avalanche to the Silverado.
    I once was a avid Avalance driver til the rear went, loving my Avalanche and couldn't find a nice one like her I stepped into the Silverado and only looked back a couple of times. Looking for the Mods that the Avalanche offered.

    Not a "direct" transfer since we actually swapped our 2004 Avalanche for our Tahoe, then added the Silverado later.

    The versatility of the Avalanche is amazing- period. I have to say I prefer the Silverado a little but due to the ride and different handling. It is a tough comparison though since our '04 was 2wd and the new truck is a loaded out 4x4.

    I know this will sound odd or maybe overly subjective, but the Avalanche seemed to "feel bloated" and soft compared to the truck all the way around. I guess part of it was due to the Suburban suspension, but the truck seems to even look cleaner and more taught than the AV.

    The Avalanche has coil springs in the rear so they do ride softer compared to the rear leaf equipped Silverado's. I also agree they feel bloated when driving mainly on the highway. It's like everything else its what is important to YOU.

    Well, the title of the thread threw me, but I'm subscribing.

    Have had two Tahoes, will be upgrading in the next year. No more little ones, the back windows don't go all the way down. Was originally thinking Suburban, but maybe an Avalanche.

    That was a really nice thing about the AV; it is based (I think) on the Suburban so the 2nd row seats have plenty of room and the windows roll all the way down.

    I was VERY pleased with our AV. Only reason we traded it was for the extra seating (8 total in our Tahoe) but the AV was one of the best vehicles we've ever owned. I would have looked harder at them when I bought my truck if they were comparable in price (truck is loaded and got a really great deal on it). You just cant beat it for comfort and versatility. I recall when they 1st came out thinking they were a gimmick and wouldn't last- I was dead wrong!

    Only thing I wish was an option is a roll-down back window vice pulling it out and manually storing it. I'm betting it would be expensive to engineer (to keep it reliable and not leak) but it would be a cool and useful addition.
