The 2014 Silverado will become part of Chevrolet’s three-truck portfolio:: it joins the Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD pickups. Chevrolet is also developing an all-new Colorado midsize pickup.

Chevrolet 2014 Silverado 1500Every detail of the 2014 Silverado 1500 was designed and engineered to meet the exacting requirements of full-size truck customers. Its exterior design blends Chevy truck heritage with a refined, modern aesthetic. The new design is more muscular, more functional and more aerodynamic. A twin-port grille, full-width bumper and dual power dome hood create a strong presence, which is carried through in sculpted body sides and fender flares.

The new front end is also engineered to improve sealing for more efficient cooling, the roof and tailgate spoiler allows smooth airflow over the truck, and new inlaid doors reduce wind noise for a quieter cab.

Chevrolet 2014 Silverado 1500The all-new interiors of the 2014 Silverado 1500 reflect the same focus on form and function. The upright instrument panel, six-gauge instrument cluster and multiple storage options are tailored specifically to the needs of truck customers. Controls are functional, logically placed and easy to operate with work gloves on. Rear doors on crew cabs are larger, for easier entry and exit, and rear doors on extended cab models are now hinged at the front for easier access, especially in tight spots.

Chevrolet 2014 Silverado 1500Under the hood, the new Silverado features a family of three all-new EcoTec3 engines, a V-6 and two V-8s, engineered specifically for use in full-size trucks. All three engines incorporate direct fuel injection, cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing, a combination of advanced technologies not found in other competitors’ trucks. All three switch seamlessly to four-cylinder operation to improve efficiency during light load driving and all three are engineered provide more power, more torque and better efficiency than the previous versions.

Chevrolet 2014 Silverado 1500The engine family includes a new 4.3L V-6 that will have ample torque to power a crew cab pickup and tow a substantial trailer, as well as a new 5.3L V-8 designed for more power, more torque and better efficiency than the current version, which is currently the V-8 fuel economy leader. A new 6.2L V-8 is engineered to be the most capable engine in any light-duty pickup.
