The Most Flexibe Vehicle Out There

2010 Avalanche Fact Sheet. Click here to download pdf

Your life changes every day. Here’s one vehicle that can do the same. The GM-exclusive Midgate helps deliver unrivaled versatility by turning Avalanche from an SUV to a full-size pickup. The flexibility continues with your choice of Vortec V8 engines with Active Fuel Management technology, which helps Avalanche 2WD with a 5.3L V8 offer an EPA estimated 20 MPG highway when running on gasoline.

What is so special about it?

Possibly the most versatile vehicle design to date, the Avalanche is based on Chevy’s full-size truck platform, yet it performs everything from six-passenger seating to enclosed 4×8 load hauling (with several configurations in-between). Called the Convert-a-Cab system, it features a combination folding midgate and removable rear window, along with folding rear seats and a three-piece cargo cover. When optimized for people moving, the Avalanche offers a roomy, rugged interior with premium, durable materials designed for active lifestyles.

Chevrolet worked with The North Face, a company that specializes in outerwear and sporting equipment, when it designed the interior. Specific features include integrated water bottle holders and dedicated connectors for North Face Summit packs. The active theme continues outside with lower body cladding, bed rails, a bed liner and a folding cargo cover made from a scratch-resistance composite material.

The Avalanche can be reconfigured by a single person, without any tools, in a matter of seconds. Transforming it from people to cargo mode increases bed length from 5’3″ to 8’1″. Removable items like the rear window and cargo cover may be stowed in on-board compartments, further increasing the vehicle’s spontaneous and active philosophy. Power, supplied by Chevy’s  Vortec 5300 V8 engine, travels through a four-speed automatic to all four wheels.

What the experts have to say…

OK, we’re going to get straight to the point here. The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro rocks. After years of anticipation, Chevy’s new Camaro not only lives up to the hype but also redefines what a muscle car can be. The traditional stereotype goes something like this — the affordable base model looks fast but goes slow due to a lumpy V6, while the V8-powered model will do apocalyptic burnouts in the high school parking lot but can’t corner to save its (or your) life. The latest Dodge Challenger comes uncomfortably close to this archetype, and the Ford Mustang is at least guilty on the V6 front. But this new Camaro, well, it’s an altogether different beast.
Impressively, the new Chevy Camaro is an excellent performance-car value whether it’s equipped with the base direct-injected V6 or the optional V8. The V6-powered base Camaro can sprint to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds, thanks to 300 horsepower, yet it costs the same as competitors like the considerably slower Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T. Heck, even the V6’s fuel economy is impressive compared to its competition. The V8-powered Camaro SS with the manual transmission dispenses with 60 mph in a blistering 5.0 seconds — 426 hp will do that for you — yet it’s considerably cheaper than cars like the BMW 135i and Challenger SRT8 and outperforms the slightly more affordable Mustang GT. The Camaro handles smartly, too, with even the base car surpassing the rarefied 68 mph mark on our slalom course.
Edmunds 2010 Camaro Review

2010 Camaro Consumer Review from Edmunds

2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 6M)
Let me preface: I’m not the primary driver. We have had a blast with the car since we bought it, though we have to keep a close eye on the speedometer. The 19 mpg in city is no surprise, but we drove from Omaha to Atlanta and got almost 29.5 mpg on every tank (91 octane or higher). We have driven it through snow and ice (though not on those P- zero tires) and had no issues; the vehicle weight, positraction, and traction control systems kept us on the road with very little problem. The car grabs attention wherever you go, and you just have to smile.
Favorite Features
The car moves when you want it to move, and does so quickly. Responsive steering, and the traction control keeps you in charge. Gauges for all the critical items rather than just idiot lights. Easy to feel safe in the car because it just feels so solid. An absolute head-turner if you like attention.

Cool Feature on the 2010 Traverse

Blind spot mirrors are integrated into the outside mirrors. The feature is standard on the LT and LTZ.

Edumonds 2010 Equinox Review

The Chevrolet Equinox is part of a growing segment of “plus-sized” small crossover SUVs. Like other vehicles of this type, the Equinox provides the style and utility one normally associates with more traditional SUVs, but without their clumsy driving dynamics and poor fuel economy. As with other crossovers, the Equinox is built on a carlike platform that provides superior on-road comfort and crashworthiness.
There have been two Equinox generations. Earlier models were known for their roomy interiors and easy-driving nature, but they also suffered from substandard interior materials. A new Equinox has just debuted that offers sharp new styling as well as new engine choices for improved fuel economy.
Current Chevrolet Equinox
The current Chevrolet Equinox is in the first year of the all-new second generation. As before, it is a small/midsize SUV that ferries up to five passengers. It’s available in LS, 1LT, 2LT and LTZ trim levels. Standard equipment for the base LS and 1LT is fairly generous, while the 2LT adds items like automatic climate control and upgraded audio. The top-shelf LTZ tacks on upscale features like a power liftgate and leather upholstery. All models have stability control and a full complement of airbags as standard. Notable options on certain trims include a rear-seat entertainment system and a hard-drive-based navigation system.
Under the hood, the Equinox starts with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine good for 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. Available on all but the LS is a 3.0-liter V6 that pumps out 264 hp and 222 lb-ft of torque. Both come with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive optional.
In reviews, our editors have been quite impressed with the current Chevy Equinox. Unlike the previous version, which was competent but forgettable, this Equinox is strikingly stylish inside and out, and its ride is smooth and quiet. The one significant demerit concerns hauling ability: Given the Equinox’s relatively expansive exterior dimensions, its maximum cargo capacity should be better than a midpack 63.7 cubic feet. Overall, though, we think the Equinox is one of the best compact crossover SUVs on the market.
