2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Classic LT1 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
The '07 Silverado is a great truck. Very solid, rides great, handles great, not squeaks or rattles. Sits low in the front for a 4x4, but only requires slight adjustment of torsion bars to get 2" more lift in the front. I get over 20 mpg on the highway with the 5.3 liter. It has great power and acceleration. I drove the Dodge and Ford equivalent and Chevy has them beat hands down. Dodges are less money, but don't have the power. Ford F-150 cost more and ride like crap, and don't have the same space as the Chevy extended cab. You can't go wrong with this truck.
5.3 engine has lots of power and gets over 20 mpg on the highway! Ride is exceptional. Very quiet interior. I love the on-board information center that calculates mileage and other information. Steering wheel controls are great, and factory chrome nerf bars. Auto headlights and push button 4 wheel drive.
Typical GM dash is overly plasticy and kinda cheap. Shocks are undersized for the truck with certain road conditions. Put a performance muffler on at the factory! Factory bed liner?
