Just bought a black 2012 Avalanche LT manufactured Mar '12 and the wife gets the old 07. The 12 came with a smooth finished sail, saddlebags and tailgate spoiler painted in the same black gloss finish as the body.....the tonneau covers were in the traditional low gloss black pebbled finish. In addition the roof brakelight spanned the entire back roof and had LEDs instead of bulbs.Looks like an Escalade EXT color coordinated rear end finish. Salesman claimed that the '12s were coming that way, but the red and silver ones in the lot (and a black one at another dealer) had the traditional low gloss black pebbled finished and shorter roof light. In the past I've seen this in a Caddy white finish on a special version Avalanche but I believe that the sail, saddlebags and spoiler had a pebbled instead of a smooth finish.

No indication of this change or the upgrade to a two speed transfer case indicated on the sticker. Not complaining because it looks great, but interested if anyone can explain the change.
