2007 model year changes
The Chevy Silverado has been completely redesigned for 2007, with more attention to interior appointments, luxury features, and driving refinement. More than before, it can be equipped to fit a wide range of roles, from casual hauler to weekend tow vehicle to serious work truck, because of a new packaging philosophy that allows two different interior themes. Like its forbears, the new Silverado is available in a wide range of combinations, determined from three different cab styles, three cargo box lengths, three trim levels, five suspensions, and various V6 and V8 engines. The new Silverado is built on a new fully boxed frame and is three inches wider at the front wheels and an inch wider at the back wheels for improved stability, while a new coil-over-shock front suspension design and new rack-and-pinion steering unit bring improvements in ride and handling. The Stabilitrak stability control system is available on the Silverado for the first time. Warranty coverage is increased for 2007, with a new five-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty that's fully transferable and includes roadside assistance for the full period. The former Silverado is still being sold for 2007 as the Silverado Classic, and to avoid confusion, the new trucks are being referred to by their factory designation, GMT900, by some dealerships.

Special features for 2007
To cater to the wide range of customers and uses for full-size pickups, Chevrolet is wisely offering two completely different interiors for the new Silverado, resulting in products that are both functional and as completely luxurious as the customer demands. Prices are very competitive, with extended cab models beginning at $22,705 while crew cabs start at $26,100 and the base regular cab in work truck trim starts at only $17,860. 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. With the highest tow rating among light-duty pickups (up to 10,500 pounds), and class-leading V8 fuel economy of up to 21 mpg, the Silverado is very competitive among full-size pickups.
