2007 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra details emerge

Though Brenda Priddy revealed the shape of the 2007 Chevy Silverado back in early June, details about the new GMT900 pickups from General Motors have been sparse. The September issue of Motor Trend contains all the deets you'd ever want to know about the General's big pickups, which Cheers and Gears has been nice enough to digitize and upload. However, we rounded up all of the details revealed in the article and assembled them below. Follow this link to view all three body styles of the Silverado and its interior, as well as our first look at the GMC Sierra.
