There's been a lot of comments and jokes across social about the Silverado EV and the Avalanche and this post by Jonny Lieberman reinforces that.

I don't think it's a bad thing but it's just funny how certain designs get reinvented and brought back. I'm just glad the Silverado EV doesn't have a small bed like the Avalanche did.

As a fan and previous owner of an Avalanche, I don't have a problem with the resemblance. The bed is about 8 inches longer than the Avalanche, and that's generally a good thing, but in reality it could be shorter and still get the magic 8 ft number with the midgate down. I would like a slightly shorter truck for garage fitment reasons.

Yeah i never found the Avalanche to be a bad looking truck when it first came out. What kind of dimensions would be ideal to fit the Silverado in your garage?

It would fit as is, I measure it to be about 231 inches in CAD (same as the F-150 Lightning). That would just mean no room to walk around the truck with my workbench in front of it, but I could move that to the other side of the garage to give some more room. I was hoping it would be about a foot shorter than it is, closer to the Hummer size. Is it crazy that I am using a Hummer as a reference size for something smaller??? Full-size trucks have just gotten so oversized. That's why I think of the Rivian R1T as more of a right-size, just wish it had a little longer bed.

Yeah what a time to be alive where a Hummer is a more reasonable size haha. Which is saying something because it looks like a tank on the road.
