The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 full-size pickup is completely redesigned for 2014. Chevy says it is "new from hood to hitch? engineered to be stronger, smarter and more capable than ever before." Revised sheet metal creates a heavily creased, squared, and powerful look. The new trucks also include three new all-aluminum EcoTec3 engines -- a V6 and two V8s -- with cylinder de-activation, direct injection and variable valve timing. As a result, each produces more power and torque than the units they replace. Chevrolet claims the new 355-hp 5.3L "EcoTec3" V8 delivers 23 mpg on the highway in 2-wheel drive models, making it the most fuel-efficient V8 truck on the road, while the 285-hp 4.3L V6 is claimed to have the most torque and highest tow rating of any standard V6. A quieter, more comfortable, more technologically advanced cab is also new, as is revised steering, suspension and brakes and a new cargo management solutions in the bed. All these changes and more in the new Silverado 1500 amount to zero increase in the base price, with the regular cab starting at $24,585.
Improved interior with added comfort and convenience; best fuel economy of any V8 pickup; extensive features and options; best-in-class tow ratings
The full-size pickup truck segment has never been more popular, or more competitive. With its 2014 Silverado 1500, Chevrolet has staked its claim once again as king of the hill. The new Silverado boasts a refined level of comfort, sophistication, and brute force now found in trucks from Ford and Ram, specifically in the all-aluminum range of engines, where Chevy has laid claim to the most fuel-efficient V8 found in a full-size truck. In fact, at 23 mpg on the highway, the 5.3L unit provides a better return than the turbocharged V6 employed in the Ford F-150. Add in the fact that Chevy managed to make so many innovative changes while keeping the base price steady, and it's no surprise that the new Silverado is a hit.
