Expert Quotes:

“...the Chevy Silverado's front seats are uber comfortable.”
Autobytel.com

“...we drove for nearly five straight hours without getting uncomfortable. There are luxury cars we can't say the same about”
Edmunds

“...could be the best interior in its class.”
Jalopnik

Most reviews were of the top-of-the-line LTZ model, which offers—in addition to the softer-design, more carlike interior—many features not always seen among full-size pickups, such as remote engine start, a touch-screen navigation system, a fold-down rear entertainment system, power-adjustable pedals, and power-adjustable leather seats. Options include a power sliding rear window, big 20-inch alloy wheels, and a rear parking assist system.

Car and Driver also noted that the Silverado’s storage spaces lacked organizing dividers and weren’t as innovative as those of competitors. (The work-oriented Pure Pickup interior has separate upper and lower glove boxes, while the luxury version featured in the LTZ only has the lower one.) They, along with several other reviewers, criticized the lack of a liner. Kind words were otherwise said about the cargo area. Jalopnik called the flat loading floor “one of the coolest features on the truck.” Autoblog also noted the deeper cargo box, along with the load-assist torsion bars in the tailgate, allowing it to be closed with one arm.

Conclusion

In top-of-the-line LTZ trim, the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado really piles on the luxury and convenience extras but lacks the especially innovative storage features that would make it the obvious winner.

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.
