2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Pickup & SUV

Available in LT & LT2, 1500 or 2500 series

The 1500 series Chevrolet Silverado's roots stretch over 89 years of pushing, pulling and hauling. Roots that have grown deep and strong by being on the job, day in and day out, generation after generation. It's this legacy that has helped Chevrolet conceive and build the pickup of a lifetime.

Meet the new generation of Silverado. With improvements over its predecessor in six key product areas, it's the culmination of nearly a century of genuine real-world testing. Bolder and more aerodynamic styling gained from a wider stance and tighter gaps. More refined interiors fitted with premium materials are a feature. A smoother and more capable ride, thanks to a new frame and chassis. Increased power generated by the new Gen 1V Vortec V8 engine. It has added safety with the StabilTrak Electronic Stability Control System (only available on certain models).

The legendary lineup of Vortec engines offer improvements in horsepower, torque and fuel efficiency. The 367HP Vortec MAX 6.0 Litre V8 engine leads the charge. With the help of Active Fuel Management, and new Variable Valve Timing, the Vortec MAX 6.0 Litre achieves impressive fuel economy. Also available is the dependable 195HP Vortec 4.3 Litre V6 and the aluminium block 5.3 Litre V8 with 315HP and 338 ft/lb of torque. With situations where extra power is not needed, such as cruising on level roads, Active Fuel Management deactivates four of the eight cylinders with seamless precision. When load demands increase, such as when the Pickup accelerates or travels uphill, cylinders are reactivated to provide eight cylinder operation.

The proven Hydra-Matic four speed, electronically controlled automatic transmissions, in the Silverado now have an input sensor and stand alone Transmission Control modules that , based on driver input, optimize shift quality. There is also a Tow/Haul mode that enhances performance while towing a trailer.

The two completely new interiors are shared with its big brother, the 2500/3500 HD series - redesigned and impressively quiet. The LTZ features 12-way power, heated Custom Leather-appointed front bucket seats; Dual-zone automatic temperature controls and an enormous 20 litres of front console storage. Three different Pickup cab styles, two different Pickup bed lengths and two different SUV body styles are available for the 1500 series which can also be 2WD or 4WD.
