2007 Chevrolet Silverado HD Series Pickups

The all new 2500/3500 Chevrolet Silverado HD fulfills the promise made with the introduction of the all new 1500 Silverado, to provide a complete line up of trucks as dependable, capable and strong as the people that drive them. Increased power is generated by the new Vortec 6.0 Litre Petrol and Duramax 6.6 Litre Turbo Diesel V8 engines. Two six-speed automatic transmissions with Tap-Up/Tap-Down driver shift control. Bolder and more aerodynamic styling gained from a muscular design and tighter fitting body panels. More accessible and refined interiors that include improved ergonomics and premium materials.

The new Duramax Turbo Diesel develops an unrivalled 660 ft/lb torque and 365 horsepower, plus boasts a 90 percent reduction in particulate matter emissions compared to its predecessor. The new Gen 1V Vortec 6.0 Litre petrol engine boasts 353 horsepower. A new Hydra-Matic six speed automatic transmission is standard, with the Allison 1000 series six speed automatic which is used in an M1 tank, being optional. Each transmission provides auto grade braking which automatically downshifts to help slow the vehicle when the driver applies the brakes while descending long steep grades. There is also a Tow/Haul mode that enhances performance while towing a trailer. When activated, this feature modifies the transmission shift schedule which helps reduce throttle pedal activity.

There are two completely new interiors with true truck design, big grab handles and controls found in both the WT and LT models and a premium design with woodgrain appearance in the LTZ. There is ample storage room, thanks to 20 litres of front console storage in the 2LT and LTZ models; 15.2 litres of total front seat stowage space, including a lockable powered underseat compartment in the 1LT models and nine litres of dual glove box storage in the WT and LT models.

Three different cab styles, two different pickup bed lengths and 2WD and 4WD are available. Regular cab which is only available with the 2464mm length pickup bed, extended and crew cabs are available with 1980mm and 2464mm long beds.
