"This truck rides very nice. It does not have enough power and gas mileage is about 14mpg. It does not live up to the advertised mileage. I have 11000 miles it. I have the LT1/Leather/Convience Package. It needs dressing up more. I loaded my 4wheeler in the bed and the fronts wheels seemed light on the road (Z71). Towing is 7500lbs with the 5.3L. I would buy the F150 instead. Towing is more and the MPG is the same. The F150 is dressed up more for the money"
"The new 2007/08 Silverado is a great truck. It rides very nice and i love to take it on long road trips. The gas mileage for a pickup truck is nothing to complain about. The interior comfort is wonderful and the dashboard styling is much improved over the previous models with a clean look. The controls are easy to reach and use. The auto four wheel drive is very nice so you don't have to think about the road conditions or guess how bad they are. The ride is smooth and the wind noise is very minimal when traveling at high speeds. Even windy days seem to not effect the noise level much. I would recommend this truck.
My only complaint is that I did not buy the crew cab version to get the extra space in the back. The extended cab is nice and fits adults well but for a little extra room a crew cab would be nicer. In the 1500 series, besides a slightly higher price, you get a shorter box to go crew. You have to go to the 2500 to get the crew and standard box which depending on your needs may not be worth the additional cost. One additional note: I added a new member to my family and the car seat does fit in the back seat, barely."
