    Not really sure, but they tend to look the same from the frontal view. Doesn't Cadillac market one ?

    Escalade, that's it. I see a lot of them seeping out of the ghetto with 26" wheels and all the chrome as it's possible to put on a vehicle. At the Chevy.com site you see that the Avalanche doesn't have a chassis like a C1500 does. But they say it can still hold any 4' x 8' materials, kinda hard to imagine from just one look at the bed. They cost more than a 1500 Silverado too ?

    The rear seats fold down extending the bed space. I think of them as a tahoe's and a silverado's child. You have a nice SUV with the capabilities of a truck.

    Go test drive them both and see what you like.. The Avalanche is a smoother ride But both ride good..

    From everything I've read, the Avalanche is basically a Suburban with a bed. The payload and towing numbers are not as good as the Silverado as well. IIRC, the Avalanche has a coil spring rear suspension while the Silverado has leaf springs in the rear.
