- fuel economy for a v-8, value for WT 4wd
- poor brakes on WT version
I have owned the 2007 Silverado 4WD, extended cab, 4.8 ltr, WT version for about 3 weeks now. Okay so I am alittle cheap and went with the stripped truck, since they had the color I wanted, 4WD and the trailer pkg. I didn't want to get the more upscale version that pushs the MSRP over 35k. The MSRP on mine was 27k with a $2500 rebate. Not too bad for a 4WD with automatic locking rear differental.. I have driven it over 500 miles now and have experienced no problems with build quality.
Overall the truck feels very solid, good firm, but not harsh suspension and decent power from the bottom end 4.8 ltr engine. Has great exhaust note too. Steering feels just right and is accurate.
The only problem I have with the model I purchased, and it is a big one is the brakes. They have rear drum and front discs. I have already overheated the front brakes going down a long steep incline. Yes I was in 2nd gear. First gear was too low. And this was with the truck unloaded. While I don't anticipate going down that same hill again, I am concerned since I haul two ATVs in an area that has some long, but not as steep declines.. I never had any problems with the brakes on the 2004 Dodge Ram 2WD I had previously which had 4 wheel discs. Besides the issue with the hill, the brakes seem very weak overall..
