As one of the best Iowa Chevrolet dealerships around, here at Pat McGrath we’re thrilled to present the 2012 Avalanche. This large crew cab pickup has the spacious interior of a roomier and more family-friendly vehicle, all while delivering the brawn and good old-fashioned muscle of a classic pickup truck. Aside from being ideal for the family man or woman, its bed provides over five feet of storage, giving you plenty of room for hauling gear and equipment. Although all three trim levels are available with FWD to help get you out of those snowy or muddy jams during the fall or winter, each level sports a variety of prices and specs. Let’s take a look at what this exciting new 2012 model can offer Cedar Rapids residents.
