DETROIT -- The redesigned Chevrolet Silverado was named 2007 Truck of the Year by Motor Trend magazine, an award that could increase the already strong sales. of the popular vehicle.

The truck beat out three other General Motors Corp. contenders: the Chevrolet Avalanche, Cadillac Escalade EXT and GMC Sierra.

The Ford Explorer Sport Trac was also eligible for the title.

The vehicle of the year designation is important to automakers, who often use Motor Trend's endorsement in their advertising. The redesigned Toyota Camry, the hottest-selling car in America, won Motor Trend's 2007 Car of the Year award earlier.

The Silverado, released in the fall, offers a choice of cab and bed sizes, plus suspensions and drivetrains for a variety of uses.
