Chevrolet Avalanche
Sticker price: $35,460 - $46,700
Wholesale price: $32,800 - $43,198
Market price: $31,194 - $40,493

The Avalanche, Consumer Reports' top pick among trucks - GM's Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra tied for second place - provides a clever combination of SUV versatility and pickup functionality.

The back wall of the passenger compartment can fold down three ways: the whole wall, just the window glass, or just the bottom half with the glass still in pace. Leave the hard cover over the bed and the glass in place to create an enclosed space that goes all the way to the front seats. Or open it all up to haul really big stuff.

The Avalanche also rides and handles nicely and its fuel economy is little different from the smaller, weaker Honda Ridgeline.
