The Chevrolet Silverado’s history can be summed up in one little saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” This has been Chevrolet’s motto since the Silverado was first produced in 1998, and they have followed it throughout the years. The Silverado comes in a few different variants with plenty of engine options. Customers can choose between a V6 option with 195ho and 260 lb-ft of torque or four different V8 engines with power outputs starting at 302hp and 305 lb-ft of torque up through 403hp and 417 lb-ft of torque. These engines are mated to either a 4- or 6-speed automatic, continuously variable transmission. Choose the Silverado HD (Heavy Duty) and choose between a 6.0L V8 producing 322/360hp and 380 lb-ft of torque or a 6.6L turbo diesel V8 engine with 365hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines are mated to a six-speed automatic. In order to keep up with the competition – the Toyota Tundra can pull up to 10,800lbs -, the Silverado is able to haul up to 10,700 lbs when equipped with the optional trailering package. The Silverado HD can tow 11,700-16,700lbs.
At a press conference today to kick off the North American International Auto Show, the Chevy Silverado was named the North American Truck of the Year. The award is presented annually by a jury of 49 prominent automotive journalists from throughout the United States and Canada.
"We’re very pleased to receive this great annual honor," said Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager. "We’ve been confident all along that we’ve had the best truck out there with our all-new Silverado. This recognition from the top industry journalists provides validation and reinforces our leadership position."
Motor Trend magazine bestowed its prestigious "Truck of the Year" award on the all-new 2007 Chevy Silverado.

The all-new 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 4WD crew cab is a hard working truck that, when equipped as a Roadside Assistance vehicle, can handle any emergency situation. The Roadside Assistance Silverado shows how the truck’s highly versatile nature can be enhanced with the addition of well-chosen accessories. High visibility is ensured with a bold yellow and black custom paint job. Multiple strobe lamps in the high beams, fog lamps and reversing lamps, along with an overhead light bar and outpost strobes provide roadside safety.
The 2007 Chevy Silverado Rally Sport recalls legendary Rally Sport Chevys, such as the first-generation Rally Sport Camaros. Those cars were all about good looks and affordable, sporty performance. The Silverado Rally Sport conveys that ethic and combines it with the capability of a pickup. This concept vehicle is powered by GM Powertrain’s 6.2L Vortec V-8 and is outfitted with high-performance four-wheel disc brakes, lowered suspension and chrome Chevy Accessories’ 22-inch wheels, with low-profile performance tires.
