(autoinsidernews) - Motor Trend magazine named the all-new 2007 Chevy Silverado its Truck of the Year for 2007. The Chevrolet Silverado was one of only five trucks eligible for the Truck of the Year title, including the Chevrolet Avalanche, the Cadillac Escalade EXT, the Ford Explorer Sport Trac and the GMC Sierra, reports Trend.
Motor Trend Editor In Chief Angus MacKenzie praised the new Silverado for offering вЂ¦traditional values people want in a pick-up - it's rugged, durable and versatile, but it's also stylish and comfortableвЂ¦and it's done a great job in maintaining the Silverado's reputation for value.
The Silverado impressed us most of all because it is a great reworking of an iconic American vehicle, said MacKenzie. The Chevy pick up truck has been a part of the American automotive landscape for decades. This Silverado takes it into the twenty-first century.
Motor Trend's evaluation is based on three key categories: Significance (looking at innovation), Superiority (looks for class-leading features), and Value.
