We love it. We have hauled tons of stuff in the back, we built a big patio in our backyard and hauled literally tons of gravel, sand, and patio stones. We towed the cement mixer and poured our own foundation for our shed. We have hauled couches, washers and dryers, bigscreen TV's.

All with the luxury of a normal SUV, full backseat, seats 6.

I wouldn't want a pickup, and I wouldn't want a fully enclosed SUV. With the pickup you wouldn't have all the room up front, and with a SUV you couldn't haul all the stuff I mentioned...

People hate it because they can. Not becuase they have a good reason.

I like the Avalanche that doesn't have all the cladding on it. And this new "El Camino" looks good too.


btw, to all, y'all need to learn to be open to new designs or in a few years when your middle-aged, your kids are gonna think what you think looks good looks like crap !

I don't think that applies to cars... I love the cars from my dad's day.

I like the "normal" Avalanche too. The cladded version looks like it was designed by a retarded monkey with a gimp hand. This new "Avalanche" looks too long and quite frankly, it looks like a Transformer.

I'm waiting to hear "EEE arr arr ooo ooo arr ehmm rrrrrrrrr arr"
