This version of the Silverado has a fairly comfortable ride, as well as easy access and cargo loading. Compared to the previous generation, the steering has improved feel and response. The payload rating is generous. We appreciate the selectable full-time 4WD and standard stability control on all V8-equipped Silverados. A hybrid version was available too. On the other hand, IIHS side-crash test results were disappointing.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"Smooth as can be. Nothing beats this V8 and Automatic transmission. Handles extremely well."

Chris R., IL (2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
