The Chevrolet Silverado from Chevrolet and its GMC counterpart, the GMC Sierra, are the latest line of full-size pickup trucks from General Motors.

History

Although General Motors introduced its first pickup truck in 1930, the term "Silverado" was a designation only used to detail the higher-level trim for the Chevrolet C/K pickup trucks from 1975 through 1999. Similarly, GMC's C/K used the "Sierra" as the higher-level trim designation on its vehicles up until 1988. In 1988, GMC decided to use the "Sierra" name on all GMC pickup trucks, though the "C/K" nomenclature was continued through 1999. "C" trucks had rear-wheel drive while "K" models had four-wheel drive. Both Chevrolet and GMC dropped the "C" and "K" designations in 1999.

The Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks have been essentially the same for their entire history. The Silverado today is generally advertised as the "tougher" version, while the Sierra has more luxury options. There are some trim and option variations as well. Early models included variations in the engine and equipment, but the present differences are slight. The 1999 redesign included different grilles and interior trim, and certain features (e.g. Quadrasteer) were included at different times on the two trucks.

GMT800

The GMT800 Silverado/Sierra 1500 (light pickup trucks) were released in 1998 as 1999 models. The "classic" light-duty GMT400 C/K trucks were continued in production for that first year alongside the new models, and the Heavy-Duty GMT400 pickups were continued through 2000, with the new GMT800 Silverado/Sierra HD (Heavy Duty) introduced in 2001.

GMC Acadia (2007)


GMC Acadia

GMC announced the all-new 2007 Acadia. It is GMC's first crossover, delivering a smooth, responsive driving experience, athletic design, a spacious interior and a comprehensive safety package to the fastest-growing vehicle segment in the United States.

"Acadia is a natural extension of the GMC brand," said John Larson, Pontiac-GMC general manager. "Its combination of smooth, responsive ride and handling and SUV versatility embodies GMC's professional grade philosophy. Acadia is a great looking vehicle that will attract customers who've never visited a GMC showroom."

The Acadia is engineered to reflect GMC's professional grade standards on a body-frame integral (BFI) structure that is reinforced with high-strength steel. It rides on a long wheelbase with wide tracks - a combination that lowers the center of gravity and enables agile, stable ride and handling.

Acadia 's driving reflexes are supported by independent front and rear suspensions. The front suspension features a MacPherson strut design, with a direct-acting stabilizer bar and aluminum steering knuckles. Isolated mounting points help reduce noise and vibration. The rear suspension uses a compact, state-of-the-art linked "H" design, which has an isolated mounting system that reduces noise and vibration transmitted to the passenger compartment.

Acadia features standard power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, with variable-effort steering available. StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with rollover mitigation technology and traction control is standard on all models.

GMC Sierra (2007)


GMC Sierra

GMC's more than 100-year heritage of building professional grade vehicles marks a new era with the introduction of the 2007 Sierra lineup. The trucks are all-new and elevate industry standards with segment-best V-8 power and fuel efficiency, along with agile ride and handling and the quietest interior of any full-size truck.

The '07 Sierra models - including the unique Sierra Denali - deliver the light-duty segment's highest-rated towing capacity (10,500 pounds/4,763 kg) and offer a maximum payload capacity of 2,160 pounds (980 kg).

"The all-new 2007 Sierra has a confident, pure presence that represents GMC's professional grade philosophy," said John Larson, general manager of Buick-Pontiac-GMC.

Sierra light-duty models are available in the fourth quarter of 2006. Sierra Denali and heavy-duty models are available in the first quarter of 2007. Sierra is available in several trim packages, including work truck, SLE (SLE1 and SLE2 models) and SLT, along with 2WD and 4WD configurations. Three cab styles - regular, extended and crew cab - and three cargo box lengths - 5 foot 8 inches, 6 foot 6 inches and 8 foot - are offered.

"The '07 Sierra lineup's range of models and configurations is more distinctive, with packages tailored to all lifestyles and uses," Larson said. "All trucks share an intrinsic quality of refinement, from the elemental work truck model to the luxury-inspired Sierra Denali."

Sierra Denali is a distinct model, with differentiated, exclusive features that elevate its performance and design, such as an exclusive 6.2L all-aluminum V-8 engine with variable valve timing and a new six-speed automatic transmission.

GMC Sierra 2500 HD SLT Extended Cab (2007)


GMC Sierra 2500 HD SLT Extended Cab

General Motors introduces the new 2007 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra heavy-duty pickups, with all-new and differentiated exterior designs, two unique interiors and class-leading power and efficiency. The redesigned pickups incorporate brand-distinct exterior and interior designs that are greatly differentiated from the light-duty trucks, along with a choice of gas and diesel powertrains. Capabilities are enhanced and complement new, segment-leading and segment-exclusive features.

Silverado and Sierra are offered in a range of 2500HD (three-quarter-ton) and 3500HD (one-ton) models, reaffirming GM's nearly 100-year legacy of building heavy-duty trucks. The 2007 models offer unprecedented levels of performance, capability and refinement. Silverado is available in WT, LT and LTZ trim; Sierra is available in WT, SLE and SLT trim - all with differentiated appearance and interiors.

"There's not a broader, more powerful or more capable lineup of heavy-duty pickups in the industry," said Gary White, GM North America vice president and vehicle line executive of full-size trucks. "But along with the capability and functionality that our customers expect, the 2007 Silverado and Sierra heavy-duty trucks meld exceptional refinement and surprising attention to detail."

The range of configurations - three cab styles, three cargo box styles and five wheelbase lengths - delivers tremendous choice. Some full-size truck manufacturers do not even offer three-quarter-ton or one-ton heavy-duty trucks. And among those that do, the 2007 Silverado and Sierra HD pickups offer many segment-best capabilities, including 18,500-pound (8,392 kg) gross combined vehicle weight rating for vehicles with a gas V-8 and a 13,000-pound (5,897 kg) conventional trailer weight rating enabled by a larger-capacity trailer hitch platform. Maximum towing capacity is 16,700 pounds (7,575 kg), when equipped with a fifth-wheel hitch.
