2007 Chevy Silverado SS

Friday, October 26th 2012. | Review

The Chevrolet Silverado SS (Super Sport) was Chevy’s no nonsense version of the Silverado 1500. Built for performance the Silverado SS certainly amassed a fan following among truck enthusiasts. Unfortunately the Silverado SS was never made after the 2007 model came out and Chevy fans are still to this day hopeful that Chevrolet will rekindle the fire that once blazed in the SS.

The last model of the Silverado SS came with a huge 6.0 Liter Vortec V8 that churned out 345 horsepower and 380 foot pounds of torque and a 4-speed automatic transmission. As a result, the 2007 Silverado SS did 0 to 62 mph in 7.4 seconds and had a towing capacity of 7500 pounds. The last Silverado SS could also had a payload capacity of around 1253 pounds. The towing and the payload capacities were not nearly as good as the ones the normal Silverado had but then nobody bought the SS for pulling and lifting weight, the SS had the performance that hardly any other trucks had at that time. A Z-60 high performance suspension package along with a lowered ride and an ABS brakes ensured that the SS performed well even when the road got twisty.

The 2007 Silverado SS came with 20 inch chrome-finish cast aluminum wheels and inside it had white backlit gauges, custom cloth, plenty of airbags for safety and other such features that made the Silverado SS fairly well equipped. The 2 wheel drive extended cab, short box SS did an average of 14 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.  The SS was not completely impractical considering the fact that its aim was to deliver high performance.  Unfortunately the SS was perhaps not practical enough to be a high seller and Chevy had to finally discontinue it after the 2007 model.
