I know of one up for sale, they want 40k. KBB says it should be worth high 20’s. It has 80k on it, I would be curious to know what they paid. 40 just seems outrageous to me...

Unless you can get the original owner to show you a sales receipt you can only guess what they paid for it originally. It's all a matter of supply and demand at the time. Some locations where sales were brisk tacked on "market adjustment prices" other dealerships felt since it was the last year of the AV and sold as a special edition they tacked on further price increases. Most dealers sold at suggested msrp though which was somewhere around $50,000 depending on trim levels etc.
The seller is probably attached to the AV and feels that it is rare and worth more then it really is but again supply and demand will show them if someone also agrees and pays the price.

They can ask whatever they want.

Thanks for the replies, I am fully aware they can ask whatever they want. I have an 03, I would hate to see it go, but living in the northeast winters and salt are taking a toll on the body behind the cladding. I’m hoping to repair it !! I would happily buy a 2nd one but paying 15 k over book value seems a little crazy. We have a 79 z28, a 98 suburban, I try and take care of our vehicles. Losing the 03 av would be difficult, the fact that they quit making them is the worst part.

My point was, they can ask anything they want.

Now, you can offer whatever you want.

Maybe everyone can meet somewhere in the middle where both are happy.

Sometimes if they get only one realistic offer, they come to understand the actual market for the truck and buyer ends up with a good truck at a decent price.

May not.

If it wasn't supposed to happen, roll on down the road and continue your search.

Best of luck.

My 2013 LT with the All Star package stickered for $41k. It’s a 2 wheel drive with most options. It has 78k miles and is in excellent condition. I could probably get $23k pretty easy based on what I’ve seen. I paid $37k out the door back in Feb 2013.

According to the papers I got with my 2013 White colored Black Diamond, he paid 44533 on 2/6/2013 in Illinois.
I bought it for $14,999 on 3/23/2020 with 155,364 miles on it, verified.
They gave me $2000 for my 2004 LTZ with 288,000 miles on it, in very good condition.
99.99% all works. No sun roof or back seat video.
I think I did very well as many around here (Iowa) are 20,000+ with around 100,000-120,000 miles.
I did replace left rear quarter as it had very slight rust.

Kwic-Av, I understand where you’re coming from...but “Tupperware”? Ouch! You’re entitled to your opinion of course, but people choose to post in the first-gen section for a reason, so that sentiment might not be as popular in this section of the site. To each his own. Out west they love the first gens for the “body armor.”

03Av, love that you want to keep it! There is no repairing rust, only replacing it. Anybody who says different owns Bondo stock!

I have an ‘03 with frame rust (sad face here) that I have to get rid of. Just bought an ‘04 2500. Might b nice to sell the old ‘03’s rust-free doors to somebody like you.

I was ignorant when I got into avy’s. I didn’t realize that they’re basically a Silverado from the cab forward, with all the value-holding power that they have.

I affectionately call the Avalanche “a Silverado with cargo pants.” :)
