Though GM’s clever staff tried to throw all of us off their trail by covering the emblem on this truck’s steering wheel with black tape, we’re still certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is the interior of the 2007 Chevy Silverado. GM Inside News has posted the picture, which shows a much higher-grade interior in the next GMT-900 pickup than the GMT-800 that came before it. Note the now ubiquitous HVAC control knobs that have shown up on everything from the Buick Lucerne to the Euro-only Cadillac BLS. The General must’ve got a great deal on those knobs.
[Thanks G for the tip!]

      I just showed this picture to my neighbor who is an quality control engineer at GM and he comfirmed that this is indeed the new interior for the '07 Silverado. Some of the bloggers on the GM Inside News site were saying this is just a test mule interior and it wasn't the final design. Well you're wrong and this it. He said the higher end models like the LTZ will have the faux wood trim just like the Tahoe and anything under that will look pretty much like this. Certainly does not beat the F-150's mark for interiors which GM trumpeted about for the past two years. I also asked my neighbor about the exterior and he said he was dissapointed because it borrowed alot from the Cheyenne concept which according to him people loved it or hated it. He hated by the way!

      #19- I agree with you completely- great response! People need to understand that Chevrolet puts function over form most all of the time. Being a loyal Chevrolet fan I like the interior and would love to see the rest of the '07 Silverdo (not enough spy shots yet). The new interior is attractive, well-designed and much more polished and appealing-looking compared to the previous Silverado interior. I'll admit that competitors do have more attractive interiors with better grades of materials, but Chevrolet trucks tend to be cheaper than comeptitors (at least to start), so people are going to get what they're paying for. Regardless of the American-built vehicles haters all over Autoblog have to say, I love Chevrolet vehicles and I'm not ashamed to say so.

      " just remember, Japan has been so dependent on America for the last 50 years and on so many levels."

      -Just remember, above ALL, this interior is pathetic, can't wait to see the "high quality" TIN FOIL emblem on that steering wheel.

      So let me get this straight.



      GM you can afford to do better, oh wait, not you can't.

      First of all, this interior is better than the one it replaces. Second, I have as of yet to see a full size truck interior that doesn't make me wince in horror. The segment is about form following function, and not one truck maker has managed to mess that up yet. Whereas the Tahoe disappoints at it's upper price points, these trucks are built for work, so how can anyone be disappointed. If you're looking for a car's interior, and you're driving a truck, I'm sorry to say you've just got piss poor judgement when it comes to vehicles.

      "4. Is this what Americans call a "nice" interior? I pity you."

      We should thank him for that, when in the hell did we lose our drive to be the best in everything? Don't piss and moan about him, when it should be motivation for the USA to once again be the best in everything we do. Be a thinker, not a whiner. Remember 2nd place is the 1ST loser.

      Go ahead and say this is best, but that will not stop the above comments from coming in.

      Compare this to the current Trailblazer's molten tar look, and it is clear that hard plastic or no, and even while remaining squarely behind Japan and Europe, this is a quantum leap for GM's design department. You have to start somewhere, and as Americans, we love to see an underdog get a bite.

      Proud Japanese, Genki Desuka?

      I hope this is the base model trim because I don't find it that impressive. A couple of years ago at the Detroit Auto Show when the Cheyenne concept was there all the GM designers, engineers and excecs kept taking about how the new Silverado interior would "blow the F-150's into the weeds". Well, I don't think this even tickles the leaves on the weeds compared to the F-150. Don't forget the Titan has a handsome interior as well and a new Tundra and revised Ram interior. All look better than this. I am very surprised how bland this looks.
