Greetings all...

I recently purchased a new Avalanche. Am trying to figure out the rear end gear ratio. I tried chasing the info down awhile on my own before "starting a thread". All paths lead to the glove box sticker (RPO) but that's still undecipherable to me!!! HELP please!!!

Thanks!!

Here are the common gear ratios, currently being used by GM, for the trucks:
GV3 = 3.08
GU6 = 3.42
GT4 = 3.73
GT5 = 4.10

And, as you suggest, the code is on the glove box door sticker.

Here is a site that will let you look up the other codes:

Was the Avalanche new or just "new to you". If new, the axle ratio would be on the window sticker.

I looked up a bunch of Avalanche window stickers online and they were all either 3.08 or 3.42. Same 7200# GVWR.

If you go to chevrolet.com and "Build" a 2013 Avalanche, the standard axle ratio is 3.08, while you can get an optional 3.42 ratio. This leads me to believe that those are the only axle ratios available to the Avalanche.
