Well, better late than never. I finally got an answer from Chevrolet concerning the number of 2002 Avs were sold by color and edition. After all this time, this is what I got;
Thank you for contacting Chevrolet with your interest in the 2002 Avalanche! The Avalanche is a fabulous vehicle. Only the Avalanche has the Midgate, which allows one person without tools to transform the Avalanche from a six-passenger SUV to a pickup with an eight-foot box in seconds. No assistance is necessary and every component stores onboard. With the Avalanche, the best features of an SUV and a full-size pickup truck are yours. The Avalanche comes standard with a driver message center, which monitors 17 different systems including low fuel, transmission and oil pressure.
At this time there is no way for us to know the breakdown of 2002 Avalanche's sold by color, or by trim levels such as the North Face edition. I apologize for any inconvenience. For further assistance please see your local dealer."
Hmmm... It took Cadillac less than twelve hours to get back to me with the type of car they had parked in the EXT bed in their television commercial. Go figure?
