2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 Stock & Cars For Sale | Kelley's Blue Book (2023)

The Ford F150 is the best-selling truck (and vehicle, for that matter) in the country, but when you combine the sales of the Chevrolet Silverado with the nearly identical GMC Sierra, it's a different story. General Motors trucks significantly outsell Fords and also outsell all import-brand trucks combined. That means GM drives its all-new Chevrolet Silverado a lot because that truck will be its standard bearer for years to come. With that in mind, GM engineers and designers made a host of changes to the truck, including an improved chassis, more precise steering, and a quieter, more luxurious interior that offers two completely different looks. Meanwhile, the Silverado offers segment-leading fuel economy thanks to the new line of V8 engines with Active Fuel Management. And for the environmentally conscious, a flex-fuel E85-compatible engine is also available.

Used 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Prices

The Chevrolet Silverado has an MSRP starting at $18,760 for a basic and somewhat spartan work truck. The LT trim level, with extensive equipment and regular cab shape, starts at $24,410. New for 2007, the top-of-the-line LTZ model has an MSRP starting at $32,105 and well-equipped LTZs could top $35,000. Being new for 2007, the Silverado is in high demand and sells for very close to the recommended price. We encourage you to check out Kelley Blue Book's Fair Purchase Price to see the typical price consumers are currently paying. As the segment leader, the Silverado offers very good resale value, exceeding projected residual values ​​for the Dodge Ram, Ford F150 and Nissan Titan and similar to the Toyota Tundra.

Driving the used 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Because it rides on GM's new full-size pickup platform, the Chevrolet Silverado offers a significantly better mix of ride and handling than its predecessor. The new platform includes a fully wrapped frame (to increase chassis rigidity), coil-spring front suspension, and rack-and-pinion steering, and the result is a surprisingly agile and comfortable ride. Our lengthy test drive took us over bumpy gravel roads, but the Silverado's cabin remained calm and collected. We had a hard time choosing between the "pure truck" interior and the "luxury-inspired" interior, as both were beautiful and functional. While the available 4.3-liter V6 could probably handle most tasks, the Silverado can also be equipped with a variety of V8 engines, most of them 5.3-liters. A 367-horsepower 6.0-liter aluminum-block V8 is also available for those who want to tow their homes behind their trucks. Power delivery was more than ample with every V8 we tested, and we were impressed with the smooth power delivery through the electronically controlled Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Chevrolet has made its StabiliTrak electronic stability control system standard on crew cab models and available as an option on extended cab models.

inner comfort

Because the Silverado was part of a major overhaul of both full-size pickup trucks and full-size SUVs, it features two distinct interiors. The WT and LT trim levels feature the "truck only" interior with larger controls and a dual glove box, while the LTZ trim level features the same "luxury-inspired" interior found in the full-size LTZ model. from Chevrolet. Tahoe and Suburb. Both instrument panels are lower and positioned further forward for a better sense of spaciousness and visibility. And both interior designs are attractive, but as you can imagine, the luxurious LTZ will be a hit with the Suburb package, while others might prefer the more functional traditional truck treatment. One point everyone will agree on is the rear seating area on Crew Cab models, which offers much more space and comfort. The stadium-style rear seat is split 60/40 and features a fold-down center armrest. Folds easily with one hand to create a continuous cargo area. Cloth seats are standard on WT and LT models; Leather seats are available on LT models along with a six-way power driver's seat. A lockable storage box is integrated into a new 40/20/40 split front seat. The container holds a laptop and has a 12 volt outlet.

exterior styling

Pure truck: That's how GM designers describe the exterior of the new Silverado. With the widest track in the segment, the Silverado is formidable, but it avoids the beefy but boyish musculature of some of its competitors. Instead, it looks fitted and wispy from front to back. Highlights include tight spaces between body panels, made possible by the new version's significantly stiffer frame, which limits body flex. The new horizontal grille is divided by a thick, shiny metal bar flanking a distinctive Chevrolet "bow tie" icon. The designers also took special care to integrate the truck bed while making it taller. Efforts were also made to limit the typically large clearances between the tires and fenders to give the truck a more refined appearance without sacrificing utility. Standard wheels are 17-inch diameter, 18-inch and 20-inch wheels are also available. Access to the rear seat/storage area on Extended Cab models is made easier with new rear access doors that open 170 degrees and power rear side lamps that lower fully toward the access doors.

favorite features

big buttons
As a welcome nod to those who work hard for a living and live in cold climates, Silverado features buttons, switches and door handles that are easy to operate with gloves.


active fuel management
The Active Fuel Management system, available on four different V8 engines, suspends the operation of all four cylinders when they are not needed, improving fuel economy.

standard functions

Silverado is available in four trim levels: WT (Work Truck), 1LT, 2LT, and LTZ, which means the vehicle can be configured to meet your needs, from pure commercial use to luxury personal use. The basic equipment of the WT includes a four-speed automatic transmission, tire pressure monitoring system, rack and pinion steering, anti-lock braking system (ABS), air conditioning, tinted windows, full instrumentation and two additional sockets. The 1LT adds cruise control, compass and rear view mirrors with temperature gauges, power windows, door and mirror locks, remote keyless entry and an audio system with CD/MP3 player. If you go for the 2LT trim, you get the 5.3-liter V8 engine with Active Fuel Management, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, six-way power bucket front seats, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and a steering wheel-mounted audio and sound system. . cruise control The ultra-luxury LTZ ​​brings niceties like 12-way power heated front bucket seats, leather-trimmed front and rear seats, premium instrument panel, heated power-adjustable/folding mirrors with integrated turn signals, six-disc compatible with MP3. CD changer with AUX input jack and premium Bose speaker system, rear audio system controls, remote start system and hot water wash system.

job options

The multiple trim levels should allow you to refine your choice based on which trim level you want, but the Silverado can also be optional in a number of ways. It offers a dazzling selection of five suspension systems, each tailored to specific driving needs. These include Z83 for a solid, smooth ride, Z85 for better handling and trailer towing, Z71 for better off-road capability, Z60 for on-road performance with 20-inch wheels, and NHT for maximum towing capacity. The StabiliTrak electronic stability control system is standard on Crew Cab models and available on select Crew Cab models. A selection of 2- and 4-wheel drive models, different cab and bed lengths, and final drive ratios are also offered.


While we expect the 4.3-liter V6 and 4.8-liter V8 to be more than adequate for work truck applications, we recommend the 5.3-liter V8s, some with cast-iron blocks and some with aluminum. And for those with a thirst for performance (and towing), the 6.0-liter engine with Active Fuel Management and variable valve timing is a gem. It offers significantly more power and torque (tractive force) with very little loss in fuel economy.

KBB Vehicle Rating and Rating Methodology

Our expert ratings come from hours of driving and number calculations to ensure you choose the best car for you. We thoroughly test and analyze every new SUV, car, truck or minivan for sale in the United States and benchmark it against the competition. When all that dust settles, we'll have our reviews.

We need new ratings every time an entirely new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes on the market. Additionally, we reevaluate these ratings when a new generation vehicle receives a mid-cycle upgrade; Basically, a middle-aged car (usually around 2-3 years old) gets a little facelift, often with upgraded feature and technology upgrades. .

Rather than pulling random numbers out of thin air or scratching them off a meaningless checklist, KBB editors put a vehicle where it belongs in its class. Before a car gets its KBB rating, it has to prove that it's better (or worse) than the other cars it's racing, as it tries to trick you into spending your money to buy or lease it.

Our editors drive and live with a specific vehicle. We ask the right questions about the interior, the exterior, the engine and powertrain, the ride and handling, the equipment, the comfort and, of course, the price. Does it fulfill the purpose for which it was built? (Whether that purpose is to travel efficiently to and from work across town, to keep your family safe, to make you feel like you've made it to the top, or that you're on your way, or if you do that feel like you you've finally found the right match for your lifestyle).

We take each vehicle we test through the mundane—parking, lane changing, reversing, cargo space, and cargo—as well as through the essentials: acceleration, braking, handling, quietness and interior comfort, build quality, quality of materials, reliability.
