2007 SILVERADO 1500 –
FIVE-STAR FRONTAL
CRASH TEST RATING‡
2008 SILVER ADO
IT’S OUR TRUCK.
AND NOW IT’S YOURS.
We put all of ourselves into the development of the new
generation Chevy Silverado. We started with a rock-solid
foundation, as the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size
pickups on the road.* But building a smarter, stronger, more
powerful, more capable and confident pickup was only step one.
The real test was how this new family of pickups would perform
in the real world. The results speak for themselves: Silverado
1500 Crew Cab delivers unsurpassed maximum towing capacity
and payload capacity.** Silverado 1500 also earned the highest U.S.
government rating – five stars – for the driver and front passenger
in the frontal crash test.‡ And the Silverado HD proved itself as
the most powerful heavy-duty on the planet.† The accolades
followed, including some of the most prestigious media and
industry awards. And with that kind of record, would you expect
Silverado to be backed by anything less than the best coverage
in Canada? That’s our 5-year/160,000 km Powertrain Limited
Warranty,†† 5-year/160,000 km Courtesy Transportation ††
and 24/7 Roadside Assistance.†† We put everything into the
2008 Chevy Silverado. Now it’s your turn.

RUGGED, YET SMOOTH.
The look is rugged – just like the engineering. The Silverado
1500 Crew Cab is strong enough to handle payloads up to
925 kg (2039 lb.) – the most in its class.* The appearance
is also formidable, with its powerful stance and available
20-inch wheels. At the same time, the shape is exceptionally
aerodynamic with its wind-cheating, steeply raked 57-degree
windshield. That translates into better fuel efficiency and a
quieter ride. And that’s not all that’s smooth about Silverado.
Getting cargo into the box is made that much easier by the
available EZ Lift tailgate. And the coil-over-shock front
suspension delivers a very smooth ride. Rugged, yet smooth?
With Silverado, it’s no contradiction.

COMFORT. AT THE PUSH
OF A BUTTON.
Comfort is programmed into Silverado Crew Cab. Take the LTZ –
it allows you to begin the cooling or heating of the cab even
before you get in, with the remote vehicle starter. Once inside,
the LTZ’s power 10-way, heated leather-appointed front bucket
seats help you find your most comfortable seating position.
And automatic dual-zone climate controls accommodate
dramatically different temperature preferences. All Crew Cab
models share the easy access provided by four large doors, and
a welcome sense of spaciousness throughout. So if comfort is
one of your hot buttons, make your push for Silverado Crew Cab.
A high level of convenience is provided
by the factory-installed remote vehicle
starter that’s standard on LTZ and
available on LT models. The system
starts your Silverado from up to 60 m
(200 ft.) away, enabling you to activate
the climate control system before you
enter the vehicle’s interior, making the
cabin temperature more comfortable.

The show goes on with the available rear
DVD entertainment system. It features
a large 203 mm (8 in.) flip-down colour
monitor. Also included are audio/video
input jacks for camcorder playback and
video games, 2 wireless headphones and
a remote control unit.

height makes things that much easier. And it’s not only the Cab that’s
your cargo can come and go as you please.
The available power sliding window at the rear of the cab
makes it easy to increase airflow. The window slides
from its centre position to the passenger side and is
operated by a switch mounted on the overhead console.

It isn’t only Silverado’s pickup box that offers
enormous storage capacity. LT models equipped
with the 40/20/40 split-bench seat feature
a 9 L lockable underseat storage space, plus a
6 L fold-down armrest storage compartment.
STRETCHING THE DEFINITION
OF EXTENDED CAB.
There’s something different inside Silverado Extended Cab.
Space. Lots of it. More than enough legroom, shoulder room
and headroom to really stretch out. There’s also plenty of
space for your stuff – with a 20 L front console capacity on LTZ
models, in addition to generous underseat storage. Once you
take to your seat, you’ll notice the advanced comfort of the
dual-firmness foam cushions. Adjust the controls and you’ll
be pleased with the feel and ergonomic arrangement of the
instrument panel. Even the view is enhanced by the stadium
seating on LT and LTZ models. A more spacious, more
rewarding definition of the Extended Cab, from Silverado.
Silverado opens up new levels of Extended Cab
functionality. That begins with large rear doors
that open 170 degrees. The cab can also easily
convert from passenger to cargo hauling, thanks
to a fold-up rear bench seat.

IT COMES TO WORK.
There is no mistaking what Silverado Work Truck was built for.
It’s all about helping you work harder, with features like a deep
cargo box design that increases capacity. Managing your cargo
is simplified by the four cargo tie-downs, stake pockets, twotier loading capability and cargo bulkheads. You can take that
functionality even further with the Cargo Management System
that’s available on all Silverados. Sliding hooks in C-channel
tracks along the sides and front of the box adapt to different
loads, and can be used to attach a range of GM Accessories.

2008 SILVER ADO HD
HEAVY-DUTY ALSO REFERS TO
THE EXPECTATIONS.
Silverado heavy-duty pickups already had a hard-earned
reputation for capability and dependability. With the
introduction last year of the new generation Silverado HD,
even more was expected. And it delivers – as the most
powerful HD on the planet.* There are two technologically
advanced engines in the lineup: the 353 hp Vortec 6.0L V8,
and the available Duramax® 6.6L V8 Turbo Diesel that
produces 365 hp and a ground-breaking 660 lb.-ft. of torque.
Both engines are mated with their own specific six-speed
automatic transmission that includes tap-up/tap-down shift
controls. And with enormous power output comes mammoth
hauling capabilities, including a fifth wheel towing capacity
of 7484 kg (16,500 lb.).† The Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD –
load it up with your expectations.

CONTROLS
A VERY SMART USE OF SPACE.
Inside Silverado, the design is intelligent, just like the
technology. By moving the instrument panel down and
forward, additional space was created in the front row.
The technology is also dedicated to getting the most out
of your time spent in Silverado. A standard Driver Information
Centre monitors numerous important vehicle functions,
so you can ensure that all the systems are operating as
they should. Not that the driver alone benefits from
Silverado’s sophisticated electronics – an available
rear DVD entertainment system is a real crowd pleaser.
Silverado: a very smart choice.
Enhance your sense of direction. The touch-screen DVD navigation
system* features a large full-colour touch-screen monitor and
voice recognition that responds to as many as 26 different
commands. The system enables you to choose between different
routes and provides step-by-step directions to your selected
destination. It also alerts you if you stray from your course.
It even develops a new, preferred route if you make a wrong turn.
Available on Extended and Crew Cab LT and LTZ models.

ENGINEERING
FIRST WE RAISED THE BAR.
THEN WE SAILED OVER IT.
It begins with “what if?” And it is refined through exhaustive
testing. To build a new standard for full-size pickups, our
development process required both analysis and ingenuity.
There’s no other way to tackle complex challenges like the need
to engineer a frame with strength concentrated in areas that
require the most support. The higher you set the bar, the more
you have to innovate. The new generation of Silverado delivers
on the promise with major strides forward in strength, power,
safety, ride quality, electronic architecture and aerodynamics.
The more capable it is, the more capable you are. Silverado.
FRAME
With Silverado’s tremendously strong
frame, form follows function. Every
part of the frame is engineered for
the specific demands placed on it. For
example, a hydroformed fully-boxed
section is used in the front for added
strength. Further back along the frame,
a fully-boxed section, fabricated from
high-strength steel, is used back to
the spare tire cross member, where
it becomes a C-channel. The frame
achieves extraordinary torsional rigidity,
without adding unnecessary weight.
This helps boost payload capacity
and contributes to its road isolation,
as well as its ride quality.
FRONT AND REAR SUSPENSIONS
A coil-over-shock front suspension,
combined with a wide track and
monotube shocks, significantly enhance
ride and handling. The configuration
provides excellent on-centre feel and
stability. The rear shocks are also
positioned to optimize ride quality.
Better yet, the smooth ride is achieved
without sacrificing hauling capabilities.
QUIET RIDE
Reducing noise and vibration was a real
priority in the development of Silverado.
This was accomplished through the
use of hydraulic engine mounts on the
Vortec 5.3L and VortecMAX 6.0L V8
engines, optimized exhaust and
induction tuning, acoustic mats in the
front and back of the cab, in addition
to an aerodynamic shape.
HYDRA-MATIC AUTOMATIC
TRANSMISSIONS
The Hydra-Matic 4-speed electronically
controlled automatic transmissions
optimize the shift sequence, based on
driver input. Overdrive and Tow/Haul
mode are both included. And these
smooth, quiet transmissions require
minimal maintenance. The Dexron® V
transmission fluid is validated “fill for
life”, meaning the original fluid is
designed to last the service life of the
truck, under normal driving conditions.*
AUTOMATIC LOCKING REAR
DIFFERENTIAL
The available automatic locking rear
differential adds traction in slippery
conditions. It intervenes when rear wheel
slippage is detected at lower speeds.
If one rear wheel slips, the locking rear
axle automatically sends power to the
wheel with grip, providing full lockup
for maximum drive power to both rear
wheels. Activation is fully automatic.
SUSPENSION CHOICES
Silverado suspension systems include:
• Z83 Solid Smooth Ride with 46 mm
monotube front shock absorbers,
twin-tube rear shocks, and a 32 mm
front stabilizer bar
• Z85 Handling/Trailering with
increased capacity from its 46 mm
rear monotube shocks and a 34 mm
stabilizer bar
• Z60 High-Performance employs
monotube shocks and a lowered
ride height
• Z71 Off-Road with 46 mm monotube
shock absorbers, off-road jounce
bumpers and a heavy-duty front
stabilizer. Also includes a high
capacity air cleaner, skid plates,
locking differential and Z71 decals.
QUICK AND SMOOTH AUTOTRACTM
4x4 SYSTEM
The Autotrac system adapts precisely
to changing road conditions. The system
features lightweight transfer case
assemblies, optimized low-range gears,
and more reliable contact-less sensors.
In addition to the traditional 2HI, 4HI,
Neutral and 4LO modes, there’s an Auto
4x4 setting that can sense wheelspin and
automatically transfer power between
the front and rear wheels. Autotrac is
standard on 1500 LT and LT2 4x4 models.
QUIET, STRONG AXLES
The front and rear axles provide smooth
operation and excellent durability.
A thick rear cover provides added
strength, while stiff mounting brackets
help reduce noise and vibration.
FLAT BLADE WINDSHIELD WIPERS
The flat wiper blade design is preformed
to match the curvature of the windshield.
This minimizes blind spots, streaking,
wind lift and noise. The wipers also
reduce wind resistance, contributing to
Silverado’s impressive aerodynamics.
RAINSENSETM WINDSHIELD
WIPER SYSTEM
When the Rainsense moisture-sensing
windshield wiper system’s infrared
sensor detects water or mist on the
windshield, it automatically activates
the wipers. The system adjusts the
wiper speed, based on the intensity
of precipitation. You can also select
conventional low and high-speed modes.
Rainsense wipers are standard on Crew
Cab LTZ models.
EZ LIFT TAILGATE
Easy does it. The available EZ Lift
tailgate requires only about 7.25 kg (16 lb.)
of effort to operate. That makes it easier
than ever to gain access to the pickup box.
The tailgate can be easily removed – and
it locks to reduce the possibility of theft.
ULTRASONIC REAR PARKING ASSIST
When in reverse at low speeds, the
available ultrasonic rear parking assist
detects objects in your path up to
2.4 m (8 ft.) behind the vehicle and
activates audio and LED warnings.
HEATED WINDSHIELD WASHER SYSTEM
By quickly heating windshield washer
fluid up to 70 degrees Celsius and using
the wipers, you can remove a thin layer
of ice from the windshield without
having to use a scraper. This factoryinstalled system makes short work of
frost, light ice build-up, insect spatter –
even tree sap. Standard on LTZ and
available on LT.
BEST-IN-CLASS AERODYNAMICS
From the steeply raked windshield, right
through to the tailgate end cap, Silverado
was designed with aerodynamic performance
in mind. Extensive wind tunnel testing
helped refine the shape, enabling
Silverado to achieve the lowest drag
coefficient of any full-size pickup on the
road today. It also helps reduce noise
and enhance fuel efficiency.
CONFIGURABILITY
With 7 engines, 3 cab types and 3 box
lengths, Silverado offers many combinations,
so you will be able to find the right one
for your needs.
*Maintenance needs vary with different uses and
driving conditions. Please refer to the vehicle
Owner’s Manual for more information.

SILVER ADO HD
ENGINEERING
IT’S NOT HEAVY –
IT’S HEAVY-DUTY.
HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL
The mid-section of the Silverado HD
frame uses lipped C-section rails
made of high-strength steel. They are
roll-formed and draw-bent during
manufacturing for maximum strength.
HYDROFORMED FRONT SECTION
Hydroformed front section side rails
allow precise attachment of suspension
components. Benefits include more
exact tuning of the ride and handling.
TORSION BAR FRONT SUSPENSION
Silverado HD models feature an
independent short/long arm (SLA)
suspension with a torsion bar
connecting the long lower control
arm to a frame cross member. It’s a
design that allows high Gross Vehicle
Weight Ratings and super load
carrying capacity. It also contributes
to a smooth, comfortable ride.
HOTCHKISS-TYPE REAR SUSPENSION
The robust Hotchkiss-type live axle
rear suspension features heavy-duty
twin-tube gas-charged shock absorbers.
It provides a smooth ride in both
loaded and unloaded conditions.
ELECTRONIC 4x4 SYSTEM
The electronic 4x4 transfer case
permits easy shift-on-the-fly control to
address changing road conditions. The
system features lightweight transfer
case assemblies with aluminum
housings, optimized low-range gears,
and yet has the toughness you expect
from a Chevy HD pickup. It is standard
on 2500HD and 3500HD LT and LTZ 4x4
models. A lever-operated transfer case
is standard on WT 4x4 models.
DRIVER INFORMATION CENTRE
The standard Driver Information Centre
(DIC) provides another example of
Silverado HD’s smart technology. It
monitors numerous functions –
everything from detailed trip data to a
series of chassis messages, such as
engine hours logged and engine oil life
status. The DIC then uses a large
display to communicate this
information. Push-button controls
further enhance functionality.
ENHANCED BRAKING SYSTEM
Four-wheel disc brakes with four-wheel
ABS are standard, as is dynamic rear
proportioning (DRP) that optimizes
rear brake performance under different
loads. The system not only achieves
a high score on the Brake Feel Index,
it also provides extensive corrosion
resistance of the brake linings.
QUIET RIDE
Silverado HD was engineered to
reduce noise and vibration. This was
accomplished through the use of
hydraulic engine mounts, optimized
exhaust and induction tuning, a spray-on
liquid dampener, an underhood blanket,
the use of front and engine-side
instrument panel mats, as well as a
back-of-cab acoustic mat. The result
just may be the quietest heavy-duty
pickup you’ve ever driven.
SMOOTH RIDE AND RESPONSIVE
HANDLING
The configuration of the body mounts
and the tuning of the shock absorbers
both contribute to a smooth ride,
regardless of the load. The wide track
and recirculating ball steering system
provide positive and responsive feel.
Z71 OFF-ROAD PACKAGE
The Z71 Off-Road Package increases
both off-roading capability and
durability. The ride is also very
comfortable, thanks to 36 mm
high-pressure gas-charged shocks.
Other features of the package include:
skid plates, off-road jounce bumpers,
and a 36 mm front stabilizer bar.
The Z71 Package is available on LT
and LTZ 2500HD and 3500HD Single
Rear Wheel models.
CARGO MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The available Cargo Management System
adds further cargo-carrying functionality.
It uses sliding hooks in C-channel tracks
along the sides and front of the box
for easy reconfiguration. Each track is
rated up to 227 kg (500 lb.). The system
facilitates the precise attachment of
GM Accessories, including side storage
boxes and a ladder rack.
ULTRASONIC REAR PARKING ASSIST
When in Reverse at low speeds, the
available ultrasonic rear parking assist
detects objects in your path up to
2.4 m (8 ft.) behind the vehicle and
activates audio and LED warnings.
Building a tremendously strong truck is one thing. Making it
strong without adding unnecessary weight is an altogether
different proposition. The new generation of Silverado HD
pickups were engineered both for strength and weight
conservation. So you’ll find aluminum used in components
like the 4x4 transfer case assemblies. Why is saving weight
so important? Every kilo saved equates to another kilo of
cargo capacity, and savings in fuel consumption. The truck
engineered to master your heavy-duty workload: Silverado HD.
BRAKE CONTROLLER
The available integrated brake controller
enables the trailer’s brakes to operate
in sync with the vehicle’s brakes. The
controller is integrated with Silverado’s
electrical system and anti-lock braking
system. To activate the controller, simply
turn on the switch located on the lower
left section of the instrument panel.
EATON® LOCKING REAR DIFFERENTIAL
The objective was to provide more
torque to the rear wheel with better
traction at low speeds on slippery
surfaces. The technological solution is
provided by the available heavy-duty
Eaton automatic locking rear differential.
It engages automatically when the
speed difference between the rear
wheels reaches about 100 rpm.

VORTEC POWER
MORE POWER. LESS FUEL.
It used to be considered a trade-off. Want more power from
your engine, then you better be prepared to use more fuel.
Silverado’s Vortec engine lineup makes that brand of thinking
ADVANCED ENGINE CONTROL MODULE (ECM)
The ECM synchronizes more than 100 distinct
engine functions on the Vortec V8 engines, from
spark plug timing to traction control. The ECM

Diagnostics capabilities.
seem very outdated. The 315 horsepower Vortec 5.3L V8
and 367 horsepower VortecMAX 6.0L V8 engines achieve
a higher output, while realizing meaningful gains in fuel
efficiency. That is thanks in part to Active Fuel ManagementTM
technology. And with the increased power output of the Vortec
V8 engines come larger hauling capacities. Equipped with the
available VortecMAX Performance Package, Silverado’s towing
capacity goes all the way up to 4763 kg (10,500 lb.). It makes
VARIABLE VALVE TIMING (VVT)
VVT optimizes combustion timing by adjusting
the opening and closing of the engine’s intake
and exhaust valves. At high engine rpms, the
valves open sooner to allow the engine to breathe
more freely. At low revs, VVT closes the valves
sooner to reduce the amount of unburned fuel
exiting the cylinder. The result is enhanced
low-end torque and high-end power, as well as
increased fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.
VVT is a feature of the VortecMAX 6.0L V8s.
for one powerful story: Silverado.
E85 FLEXFUEL
FlexFuel versions of the Vortec 5.3L V8 engine
are available, enabling them to run on regular
unleaded gasoline or a blend of up to 85 percent
ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. E85 is a cleaner
burning, renewable fuel made from biomaterial,
helping reduce carbon dioxide emissions,
decrease greenhouse gases – and our
dependence on petroleum.
ACTIVE FUEL MANAGEMENT
It’s the key to the remarkable fuel efficiency of the Vortec 5.3L V8 and VortecMAX 6.0L V8
engines. It shuts down four of eight cylinders in low demand situations, such as cruising
on a level highway. But the moment more power is needed, such as during acceleration
or driving uphill, the cylinders are reactivated quickly and smoothly – with no driver input
required. In fact, the transitions are so seamless, they are virtually undetectable.
22
DEEP-SKIRT CAST ALUMINUM BLOCK
How does the VortecMAX 6.0L V8 limit crankshaft
flex, while stiffening the engine’s structure and
reducing vibrations? It’s all thanks to the deep-skirt
engine block design that features 6-bolt main
bearings with cross-bolted bearing caps. The use of
aluminum reduces weight, yet warms up more quickly,
for improved heating and defrost response times.
VortecMAX 6.0L V8 engine.

HD POWER & TOWING
THE DURAMAX DIESEL HAS
MET ITS MATCH.
The advanced Allison 6-speed automatic transmission includes
grade braking and cruise grade braking. These features help you
maintain a constant speed when driving downhill by adjusting
the shift schedule, and using both the engine and transmission
to slow down. This reduces brake wear and enhances driver
control. The Allison transmission also uses shift stabilization,
which minimizes unnecessary shift cycling by preventing an
upshift in specific situations when it is preferable to remain in
a lower gear with less engine torque. A Tow/Haul mode can be
activated to raise the upshift and downshift points to further
reduce shift cycling and to improve performance when towing
or hauling a substantial load.
The available Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo Diesel has no equal.
But it has met its match with the Allison six-speed automatic
transmission. Its advanced electronic controls produce more
precise, more efficient, faster and smoother shifts. The Allison®
transmission also incorporates such sophisticated features
as grade braking, cruise grade braking, shift stabilization
and Tow/Haul mode. The standard Silverado HD
engine-transmission combination is also noteworthy:
a 353 horsepower Gen IV Vortec 6.0L V8 mated with a
six-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. With this
much power, it should come as no surprise that the capacities
are nothing short of astonishing: a maximum Gross
Combination Weight Rating of up to 10,660 kg (23,500 lb.).
That’s quite the load – Silverado HD is quite the truck.
The Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo Diesel engine features
a Diesel Particulate Filter that traps solid particles
from the exhaust before they are emitted into the
atmosphere – reducing particulate matter emissions
by 90 percent. The engine is designed to run on
Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel (ULSF), further reducing
emissions. The Duramax can also run on B5 Biodiesel –
a mix of 95 percent ULSF diesel and 5 percent
biodiesel. A “smart” turbocharger adds to Duramax’s
capabilities. It boosts performance in a wide range
of conditions, by enabling the boost pressure to be
controlled independent of engine speed. That
minimizes turbo lag and also reduces emissions.

SILVER ADO 1500 MODEL OVERVIEW
SAFET Y
BECAUSE TROUBLE CAN APPROACH
FROM ANY DIRECTION.
Silverado helps protect its occupants with a collision sensing
system. The priority is avoiding an incident before it occurs,
with the help of features like StabiliTrakTM* and a tire pressure
monitoring system. When a collision proves unavoidable, you
can take reassurance from the fact Silverado 1500 earned
the highest U.S. government safety rating – five stars – for
the driver and front passenger in the frontal crash test.**
And there’s further peace of mind coming from the presence
of OnStar®. Silverado: enhancing safety before, during and
after a collision.
*Standard on 1500 Crew Cabs, available on Extended Cabs.
**Five-star frontal crash rating is for driver and front passenger seating positions, in the
frontal crash test. U.S. Government ratings are part of the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration’s (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) (safercar.gov).).
2007 SILVERADO 1500 –
FIVE-STAR FRONTAL
CRASH TEST RATING**
STABILITRAK ELECTRONIC STABILITY
CONTROL SYSTEM
When StabiliTrak detects a lateral skid,
it intervenes automatically by adjusting
brake pressure and engine power to help
return the vehicle to its intended driving
line. Proactive Roll Avoidance is also
included. This system is standard on
Crew Cab models and available on
Extended Cabs (1500 models).
HEAD CURTAIN SIDE-IMPACT AIR BAGS
WITH ROLLOVER SENSOR
The available head curtain side-impact
air bags**, on 1500 models, help reduce
the risk of injuries to all outboard
occupants in certain side impacts. When
deployed, the air bags remain inflated
for up to 6 seconds in the unlikely
event of a rollover, to help reduce the
risk of ejection.
TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM
The standard tire pressure monitoring
system uses sensors to detect when tire
pressure is too low in each tire, except
the spare. The system then displays a
warning on the Driver Information Centre
(Standard on 1500, 2500HD and 3500HD
models with single rear wheels).
CAR COMPATIBILITY BRACKET
This horseshoe-shaped bracket is
attached to the bottom of the front
frame rail on 1500 models. It “grabs”
the front bumper of lower-profile
vehicles, such as cars, reducing the
risk of Silverado riding up onto the
other vehicle in a collision.
PASSENGER SENSING SYSTEM
The Passenger Sensing System, used
on 1500 models, detects the weight of
the passenger in the right front seat
and automatically suppresses air bag
deployment when appropriate.†
†A
NOTE ON CHILD SAFETY: Always use safety
belts and proper child restraints, even in vehicles
equipped with air bags. Even with the Passenger
Sensing System, children are safer when properly
secured in a rear seat. Never place a rear-facing
infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle
equipped with an active air bag. Refer to the
vehicle Owner’s Manual and child safety seat
instructions for more information.
