Exterior

On the outside there are no major changes made because Chevrolet has decided to keep the overall feel similar to the 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche.

The interior layout looks similar to Ford F-150 but the controls and knobs are easy and simple to use. The seats are very supportive and comfortable for all the passengers’ front and rear side. There is ample leg space, headroom and back rest options that make this car one of the most comfortable full size SUVs in the market.
