Judging from this spyshot, the 2007 Silverado looks pretty much as expected-- a Chevy pick-up with a Tahoe front clip grafted on. Predictable or no, it's a much-needed plug for GM's reputation, for with the introduction of the 2007 Toyota Tundra, the Silverado and stablemate GMC Sierra will officially be the oldest full-size pick-ups on the North American market. It looks like the one pictured might just be a heavy-duty version going through a few more test runs before the truck is launched into production this summer.

      It's not the Tahoes front clip at all, the GMT-900s trucks were to be different than the GMT-900 suvs in regards to the f/e clip/interior.

      They may be the oldest, but they're still the best. Every time Chevy/GMC upgrades it's trucks, they manage to include innovative and powerful new ideas such as four wheel steering, hybrid engines, and always a powerful 350 with tons of power. Given that, the older model GM trucks are still as good or better than the newer model from anywhere else.

      Doh idiot writer. The new Silverado will go on sale Oct 1. The new Tundra is currently sloted to go on sale beginning of next year (straight out of Toyota's investor relations mouth). And just in case

      I have a scanned picture of the 2007 Silverado from this month's issue of Truckin' magazine. Actually, it looks to me to be a photoshopped picture of a Suburban with the back cut off from the C to D pillars. At any rate, it still gives a great indication of what the new trucks will look like. I would be glad to email it to anyone that would be interested. Email me at marctamm@yahoo.com.

      GM doesn`t build a 350 engine anymore.
      I like my 01 Silverado 5.3L. The steering shafts could be of better quality though, and should be.
