Even after an all-new Chevrolet Silverado has been introduced for 2007, the former Silverado continues to be sold as the Silverado Classic. This older, respected design, like the new Silverado, comes in several different combinations of cab styles, bed lengths, and V6 and V8 engines, and also comes in two specialized variants that the new Silverado doesn't yet offer--a Hybrid and a high-performance SS. Silverado Classic models differ very little from equivalent 2006 Silverado models, with the exception of a few minor feature changes, and the five-speed manual transmission is now only offered with the V6.

The Chevy Silverado Classic is now upstaged by its replacement, the new 2007 Silverado, but this line of pickups has done well in its market segment since its 1999 introduction. The Classic models are priced considerably lower than equivalent new Silverado models, with the base Work Truck starting as low as $15,840. Chevrolet claims that the Silverado is the most dependable and longest lasting pickup truck model, and points to J.D. Power's Initial Quality Survey (IQS) as evidence. For 2006, the model topped the IQS's Large Pickup category.
