2007 Chevy Silverado Pickup Truck Options

Thursday, March 8th 2012. | Review

The ladder body of the 2007 Chevy Silverado pickup truck options an impartial, management-arm coil-over-shock front suspension. The versatile spring rates and rack-and-pinion steering combine to provide the smoothest road really feel and most confident flip-in of any full-measurement pickup.

With harsh and gentle steering inputs, the results are balanced and evenly progressive, and snap-back to center is predictable and firm. Likewise, mounting the rack to a cross member (the steering field was previously mounted to the driver-side frame rail for 4×4 models) allows steering engineers to use bushing and torque specs to reduce (if not eliminate) play or slop within the system. Strong and simple to regulate are apt descriptors.

The remaining two-thirds of the totally boxed body accommodates the precise wants of a pickup mattress, and the 2007 Chevy Silverado makes use of a reside rear axle. Engineers put appreciable effort into tuning the three-leaf pack to run easily when empty and carry maximum payloads for long stretches. The rear mono tube shocks are staggered (one behind the axle, one in entrance) and canted to manage wheel hop and handle up and down forces and arduous cornering.

Mix this with the truth that, quite than a raised butt (like some other manufacturers use) with overly arched leafs, the 2007 Chevy Silverado has longer rear springs with a thickened overload spring to maintain the trying level when empty or loaded. With the decrease middle of gravity, entrance and rear suspensions work extra intently together during simple and aggressive cornering–the truck takes a set as flat as any modified tuner truck we’ve driven. And for those who need extra avenue efficiency, Chevrolet is offering all sorts of decisions from 17-, 18-, and 20-inch rims to a number of road-course-biased tire treads, as well as a mud-loving 31-inch-tall tire.

It will be a while earlier than all of the engines within the lineup will be available, however the smallest will be the redesigned 4.three-liter V-6 (just for stripper common-cab fashions), then the 4.eight-liter V-eight, then two versions of the 5.3-liter V-8 (one solid-iron block, the other all aluminum–ultimately, they’re going to all be aluminum for weight savings), and finally Chevy’s largest obtainable V-eight, the 367-horsepower all-aluminum OHV 6.0-liter.

We drove several 2007 Chevy Silverado with the popular 5.3 liter V-eight that’ll supply the gasoline-saving system generally known as Lively Gasoline Management. The system can shut off four cylinders, relying on how you drive, to supply up to a 20-% gas-economy benefit over non-AFM-geared up system. The 5.three-liter V-eight is rated at 315 horsepower and 338 pound-toes of torque and has recorded an EPA gas-financial system mark at sixteen mpg city/22 mpg freeway (2WD). Impressive that a 300-plus-horsepower engine can get over 20 mpg on the highway. So, if you have nice memory with 2007 Chevy Silverado, let’s make it more bright.
