That is right V10. I was in India in May n saw the same truck near South Ex. I was seriously wondering who has an heart to import an Avalanche and modify it like that.

Everything was just fine except for those body colored rims.

This car came with 8.1 ltr engine. Did you read which engine was this ?

I am sure that very few can manage to run this car with that engine. FE will be dismissal. I am not sure if the same engine was available in Kuwait or not, but from what I had read the 8.1 was the engine to have with this truck.

a very nice catch GTO. the owner has simply ruined the looks with the awful color. however i like the 1st gen. more, it's much more meaner looking.

Yes have seen it in bandra before and have see it in the day light she looks massive and mind blowing
Love the size and looks had see it in the last week of august near FUNKY stores(bandra) but was lazy to post the pics. Like too say one thing the paintjob done on this is awsome as well. See it in person to belive it right said GTO.

If its on Kuwait plates, it belongs to the same guy who had the bling bling Hummer H2 a couple of years ago. The owner and his cousin are known to me.

The first generation Avalanche based on GMT800 had 8.1 ltr. engine. The second generation has a 6.0 or 5.3 V8 option.
But I am not sure of Kuwait market.

EDIT : Correct, this is second generation based on the new GMT900 and this car ( truck ) is available with either 5.3 V8 or 6.0 V8.

The same guy had a blue one before or was it the same one now painted red. There was a blue one where this red one is now parked in Khar 16A road I think he had it repainted.

@GTO

The car looks much bigger than a Hummer and Prado seen on Indian Roads.

Btw, which is the largest and biggest usable SUV made so far. I once saw the pic of GMC Denalli which was way bigger.
