2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado has received a total overhaul that brings both a more modern look and more-modern equipment. The dashboard is more upright and blocky than before, but looks classier than the outgoing truck’s bland, plasticky unit. Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system is available, as is an eight-inch touch screen as well as a 4.2-inch color display in the gauge cluster.
The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado’s full specifications and information. We now know though that one mill, the 5.3-liter V-8, is rated at 355 horsepower, and is capable of touching 23 mpg on the highway. It’s expected that this engine will serve the majority of Silverado owners. Both the 4.3-liter V-6 and 6.2-liter V-8 engines return for the latest Silverado too. A new High Country trim is also bowing for the first time, and Chevy says it will square off against the likes of Ford’s King Ranch, Ram’s Laramie Longhorn, and the 2014 Toyota Tundra 1794.
Each engine is also capable of running off four cylinders to help boost fuel efficiency when much power isn’t needed. As for strength numbers, Chevy says that EPA numbers are expected to be the best in its class, but the official word isn’t expected until early 2014.
