Consider the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Classic as a completely restored vintage truck. While Chevrolet continued with new year models of the Silverado 3500, they kept on the production of the old version calling it the Silverado Classic. The Classic is exactly the same model as 2006 Silverado 3500.
Classic or Modern Chevrolet Silverado, Which do You Prefer?
During 2007 Chevrolet introduced an all-new line of Silverado pickups that are still considered to be excellent vehicles. However, they decided to also retain the old version of the truck and called it the Silverado Classic. The older version of the Chevrolet Silverado was about $2000 less expensive than those of the new models, but the new designed Chevrolet Silverado's were vastly superior with many updates done to the range.
Solid as a Rock
The Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Classic is a solidly built strong truck and a good workhorse. It rides and handles well and is quick and comfortable, certainly good value for money. Coming with boxed and hydro-formed frame rails gives it a platform like a rock, strong and rigid.
The cabin of the Silverado Classic is equipped with cloth or vinyl seats that are big and cushy. The standard front bench has seating for three people, split 40/20/40 and the middle part can fold down to become a centre console or armrest. The Extended cab and the Crew cab models have enough capacity to seat six persons. There is ample head-room space as well as plenty of leg room to relax and not feel cramped.
With the Extended Cab models of the Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Classic, there is more space than you would expect to find, and three adults can sit comfortably for short trips. The bottom of the rear-seat folds up to provide storage space and the entire rear seat assembly can be removed with a wrench when cargo capacity is more important than passenger space. The Crew Cabs are equipped with spacious comfortable rear seats and there is additional cargo space in them as well. There is also an option for adjustable bucket seats that are available in premium cloth or leather. The seats are then separated by a deep centre console and the rubber lid top is handy for small items. There is also a handy and convenient large coat hook in the cabin and Dual-zone climate controls comes as a standard feature.
