You are in the Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra
What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, Truck
#125 of 708 UNCOVERED! All-New 2007 Chevy Silverado!
Jun 12, 2006 (8:37 am)
A spy photographer caught the 07 Silverado with no cammo as it was being unloaded from a truck to shoot a TV commercial! It is a red crew cab 1500 4X4 model with the Z71 off-road package. It looks like a bloated Colorado to me, but I am sure it will sell very well anyway. Here's the link, since I can't attach the pic I had saved on my computer:

I just wanted to gloat and say that I like it.

Well, this is one of those times that I don't mind being wrong Even though I can't say I was so horribly off with my rendering
But, I figure if this is what it looks like, and the displacement on demand significantly improves gas milage (I heard it would increase it by more than 25%), I will be in line to buy one!
#130 of 708 Looks small

Like a Nissan small pickup. It is old styling, like 2 generation behind F150. If anyone will give up market share to Tundra, it will be GM and Dodge.
This is nowhere near the freshness of GM's SUV version.

Especially since Ford trucks get such
excellent horrid gas mileage.

yeah, that's one reason why I don't even consider Ford, Dodge, Nissan or Toyota for a truck, the gas mileage sucks on all of them. Not saying my current Silverado is great, but it's definitely the best on the market. If the predictions for the 25% increase in MPG with the displacement on demand engine is to be believed, Chevy will be the most fuel efficient truck hands down, and people are going to flock to it just to save money on gas!
Edited to add: I forgot that even the Honda truck has worse gas mileage than the Chevy does

From what I've read displacement-on-demand only really works on the highway under light loads. For stop-and-go driving, or for pulling loads, it will have little or no effect.
Edmunds reported on their long-term Commander, with the 5.7 with displacement-on-demand, that the gas mileage was disappointing. Frankly I think displacement-on-demand is more bark than bite.
#134 of 708 Didn't expect a Mitsu Endeavor front-end!

But the Next Tundra Is no beauty queen either.
Going for ultra-generic, wide-mouth bass?
Oh, well. Just get the Avalanche for a good front-end.
