It took 5 long days, hundreds of miles and more caffeine than one wants to admit to, but after days of watching a commercial photo shoot from afar, our photographer finally got a chance to photograph the all-new 2007 Chevrolet Silverado as it sprinted out of a car carrier and ran through a car wash. The camera-ready Crew-Cab was decked out in the Z71 off-road package, and wearing brochure-red paint.

Riding on the GMT900 platform, the Silverado’s introduction comes after that of the full-size SUVs, and up until this moment - has been very well hidden behind miles of black vinyl. Although this was originally scheduled to arrive as a 2008 model, Chevrolet has been working at a fast pace and the Silverado will likely debut this fall, with production starting as early as October. And, as one can clearly see, this is no Tahoe clone, but a unique look including stacked headlamps, which separate the trucks from the SUVs.

We’re a bit surprised that the Silverado doesn’t have some of the signature styling from the 2003 Cheyenne Concept - such as the wraparound glass at the back of the cab, yet we think consumers will be pleasantly surprised with both the styling and car-like refinement that the Silverado is said to have. And, equipment-wise, this Silverado is equipped with a roof-rack and back-up sensors.

Note: No, that isn’t unsightly panel gap in the first photo…the hood was indeed popped up just a bit.

Pics. Imo, not as good looking as some of the other trucks on the market. Powertrain options should be tops.

Nice, but I like the current version a lot better. Something about the bumper I don't care for. Also the bed seems out of proportion to me. I dunno... :wow :eek:

The cab section of the truck doesn't flow well with the rest of the truck. It seems really tall and out of proportion. Maybe they need to increase the height of the bed or cut the roof height. I do like the front of the truck though.

i'll take my f150 now.

headlights look quite similiar to an escalade, bumper is ... idk, retarded? and the fenders look too damn bubbly. I haven't ever really cared for chevy trucks, but I do like my dad's GMC. i just hate bowties i guess. and this doesn't change my mind one bit.

if it came out like 5 years ago, it should be a big hit to the market...but now, it looks just outdated...

Definitely not anywhere near as visually attractive as the current F150, Ram, Titan, or upcoming Tundra. Dare I say that I think even the Ridgeline looks better? :ninja

Hopefully the specs will make up for the looks.

I agree and it looks too much like their mini truck the Colorado.
