ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

by Marty Padgett December 2007

Chevy's full-size pickup rolls into 2008 little changed from 2007, when it was completely redesigned.

Three cab styles are available - regular, extended, and crew cab - as are three cargo box lengths (5'8", 6'6", and 8'). The Silverado comes in WT, LT, and LTZ trims with either rear- or four-wheel drive.

Engines offered are extensive and begin with a 4.3-liter, 195-horsepower V-6 and continue through 4.8-liter (295 horsepower) and 5.3-liter (315 horsepower) V-8s, cresting in top-of-the-line models with a 367-horsepower, 6.0-liter V-8. All models use a four-speed automatic transmission. The 5.3-liter engine is available with E85/flex-fuel capability. The Silverado can tow as much as 10,500 pounds when properly equipped.   

Changes to the Silverado 1500 for '08 include standard XM satellite radio, an available power seat on regular-cab models, and more brightly lit instrument pointers. An integrated trailer brake controller is available on extended cab and crew cab models.
