TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Browse Chevrolet Silverado 1500 inventory in your area.


Chevy's full-size pickup rolls into 2008 little changed from 2007, when it was completely redesigned.


Three cab styles are available — regular, extended, and crew cab — as are three cargo box lengths (5'8", 6'6", and 8'). The Silverado comes in WT, LT, and LTZ trims with either rear- or four-wheel drive.


Engines offered are extensive and begin with a 4.3-liter, 195-horsepower V-6 and continue through 4.8-liter (295 horsepower) and 5.3-liter (315 horsepower) V-8s, cresting in top-of-the-line models with a 367-horsepower, 6.0-liter V-8. All models use a four-speed automatic transmission. The 5.3-liter engine is available with E85/flex-fuel capability. The Silverado can tow as much as 10,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Changes to the Silverado 1500 for ’08 include standard XM satellite radio, an available power seat on regular-cab models, and more brightly lit instrument pointers. An integrated trailer brake controller is available on extended cab and crew cab models.
