    The Avalanche LS came with a split front bench into, I think, 2011 (maybe 2012), my wife's cousin bought one (she has 5 teenagers).

    I just checked Chev.com, the 2013 Avalanche has a front split bench as an option on the LS level. The 2011 and the 2012 may also list it as an option (probably a no cost option).

    I just checked the Chevrolet and GMC website and for 2014 a 40-20-40 front bench is available at a $250 savings over buckets seats on the LS(Chevrolet) and SLE(GMC) Suburban and Yukon XL.

    To all those that haven't seen a console-shift truck, clearly you haven't been inside an F-150 in the past 8 years.

    Or a Toyota Tundra.

    The F-150 only has a console shifter on the FX2 or higher.

    The Toyota Tacoma.

    I could not find any column shifter on any model.

    Is this the same fate coming to the Chevrolet Colorado GMC Canyon?

    This may be the fate for all trucks soon. :(

    I've been waiting for this truck for 2 years and for the most part it dosn't dissapoint, decent body, great interior, nice drivetrain, feature packed and drives nice. It has a few quirks I don't quite understand that makes it slightly dissapointing after my 2 year wait.
    1) Console shifting eliminates a potential seating position. When test driving I grabbed the accessory stalk on the console twice to shifto_O
    2) 2 position folding back seat dosn't fold flat when folding the seatbase up, taking about 6" of space that my dogs need to move around back there. I have also carried bulky equipment in the back seat while the bed was full of material so I would have to remove at least the big section of the rear seat for my needs, making it a 3 seater. I'm not sure what function is served by having the seatback fold down onto the base.
    3) The rear passenger windows don't roll all the way down into the door, remaining 2-3" up, so resting your arm there dosn't work.
    4) the back door window sill curves abruptly upward toward the back so even if the window rolled all the way down the upward curving sill makes its use as an arm rest akward; the sill is fairly high as well.
    4) I think I would have preferred the 4.3 with the displacement on demand from the 1500; 20 fewer horses but 36 more ft lbs compared to the 3.6.
    I still may buy one if I feel I can deal with installing the back seat when needed but I wish GM would have made the trucks interior a 6 seater with the ability to make the most of the room in the back when the seat is folded up as in my Dakota. I will wait until they begin offering some of the deals they do on the full size trucks so it wont cost more than the 1500, maybe by then they may even redisign the back seat for my needs.
