The Chevy Silverado was named Motor Trend's 2007 Truck of the Year. The vehicle was recently redesigned and according to the Detroit Free Press, this award should only increase already strong sales.
Other contenders in the fight for the title include the Chevrolet Avalanche, Cadillac Escalade EXT, GMC Sierra, and Ford Explorer Sport Trac. Motor Trend said the variety of drivetrain, colors, suspension, cab and bed sizes, plus the variety of possible uses of the truck all came into play in the decision.
“The Silverado impressed us most of all because it is a great reworking of an iconic American vehicle,” said Motor Trend editor Angus MacKenzie. “The Chevy pickup truck has been a part of the American automotive landscape for decades.”
We reported earlier that the 2007 Motor Trend Car of the Year was the Toyota Camry.
