SAN ANTONIO – New from hood to hitch, the 2014 Silverado 1500 is engineered to be stronger, smarter and more capable than ever before.
Among the hundreds of improvements, large and small, are:
  • · A trio of all-new EcoTec3 engines, a V-6 and two V-8s
  • · A stronger, quieter and more comfortable cab
  • · A refined new interior with features and connectivity tailored to the needs of truck customers
  • · Revised steering, suspension, and brakes for improved ride and handling
  • · Ingenious solutions for managing cargo in the bed.
Even with all of the improvements, the base prices for all three configurations of the 2014 Silverado 1500 – regular cab, double cab, and crew cab – carry over from 2013. Buyers of all 2014 Silverado 1500s also will receive a standard scheduled maintenance program for two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Silverado crew cabs with the available 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8 will begin reaching Chevrolet dealers in May. The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices for crew cabs start at $32,710, including a $995 destination freight charge – the same as the 2013 model.
The crew cab will be joined this summer by a regular cab model and a new double cab Silverado, which replaces the extended cab. Also available this summer will be an all-new EcoTec3 V-6 with the most torque and highest towing rating of any standard V-6.
Coming later in 2013 are an all-new 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8, engineered to raise the bar for premium truck engines, and the High Country, a rugged, luxurious Silverado tailored to the growing market for high-end pickups.
“When you combine the innovative features of the new Silverado with base pricing equivalent to 2013 models and standard scheduled maintenance, Silverado becomes a great choice for pickup customers, helping them save money when they buy – and when they drive,” said Jeff Luke, executive chief engineer for Silverado.

Innovative technology, tailored for the way customers use trucks

Silverado’s innovative technology is tailored to the way customers use full-size pickups, providing the power, efficiency, refinement and dependability they expect from their trucks.
Examples include:
  • EcoTec3 engines that provide class-leading V-8 fuel efficiency and towing capability, without the cost and complexity of turbochargin · High-strength steel that makes the frames and cabs stronger and lighter yet can take the pounding of towing, hauling and off-road operation, year after year
  • The strategic use of aluminum alloys to reduce the weight of engines, front suspension components, hoods and other parts
  • New interiors featuring ample storage, multiple power and USB connections and available high-wear cloth for bench or bucket seats
  • Chevrolet MyLink, which provides powerful connectivity for work or family with simple, intuitive controls.
“Millions of hardworking Americans rely on full-size pickups to run their businesses, earn a living, and take care of their families,” said Luke. “So as we reengineered the Silverado for improved performance, refinement and efficiency, we selected materials and technologies we were confident could get the job done.”

2014 Silverado 1500 at a glance

EcoTec3 engines: Silverado 1500 will offer three all-new EcoTec3 engines – a 4.3L V-6 SAE-certified at 285 horsepower (212 kW) and 305 lb.-ft. of torque (413 Nm), a 5.3L V-8 certified at 355 horsepower (250 kW) and 383 lb.-ft. of torque (519 Nm), and later this year, a new 6.2L V-8.

All three EcoTec3 engines feature direct fuel injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing, a combination not found in competitive trucks. The engines also use a compact overhead-valve design and weight-saving components such as aluminum blocks and cylinder heads, to reduce mass, for additional energy savings
All three provide the proven power, torque, and dependability of a large-displacement engine, seamlessly switching to four-cylinder mode to save fuel during light-load driving. The 5.3L V-8 has EPA–estimated fuel economy of up to 23 mpg highway (2WD models), the best of any V-8 pickup, and better than Ford EcoBoost V-6.
Silverados equipped with the 4.3L V-6 will have towing ratings up to 7,200 pounds, the highest for any base V-6 in the segment. Silverados equipped with the 5.3L V-8 and the max towing package, available later this year, will have towing ratings of up to 11,500 pounds, which is more than any light-duty pickup currently on the market.

Functional, aerodynamic exterior: Silverado’s exterior design blends strong 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 Silverado design is about much more than just looks, however. The new front end is engineered to improve sealing for more efficient cooling, while the roof and tailgate spoiler were shaped in the wind tunnel to smooth airflow over the truck for reduced drag. New inlaid doors, which fit into recesses in the bodyside, reduce wind noise for a quieter cab.

All-new interiors tailored to truck customers: The 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 double cab models are now hinged at the front for easier access, especially in tight spots.

The new Chevrolet MyLink provides easy-to-use connectivity for the job site or the family vacation, with natural voice recognition and enough ports and power outlets to support multiple devices.

Stronger, quieter cab: The new truck cab is stronger, with nearly two-thirds of the structure made from high-strength steel, for a confident feel and improved safety. Similarly, the main rails and key cross members of the updated frame are high-strength steel with major elements hydroformed for reduced mass and improved strength.

New shear-style body mounts tune out both up-and-down and side-to-side movement for a quieter, more comfortable ride. Double cab and crew cab models have a set of hydraulic body mounts to further isolate the cabs. Combined with numerous other acoustic and NVH (noise vibration and harshness) enhancements, the intended result is a solid, refined feel with no loss in traditional truck capability.

Chevy MyLink for powerful, intuitive connectivity: Most 2014 Silverados feature MyLink with a 4.2-inch or 8-inch color touchscreen radio. The 4.2-inch radio, standard on 2WT and LT models, includes Bluetooth for phone streaming, two USB ports, an SD card slot and natural voice recognition. LTZ and High Country models receive an 8-inch high-definition touch screen that enables users to scroll or drag through menus.

Both MyLink systems feature intuitive, easy-to-operate controls for major functions. Silverado also features four selectable themes for the display screen and drive information center, which tailor the look of the displays to the taste of the customer.

Improved ride, handling and safety: The chassis of the 2014 Silverado includes a number of customer-focused updates. A revised front and rear suspension and wider wheels provide a more comfortable ride and more confident handling. Electric power steering improves steering feel and reduces fuel consumption. New four-wheel-disc brakes with Duralife™ rotors improve brake feel and potentially double rotor life.

Silverado will be available with segment-exclusive safety features such as Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning with an Active Safety Seat, and Front and Rear Park Assist. StabiliTrak with Trailer Sway Control and Hill Start Assist are standard on all Silverados. These types of features could be paramount to the safety of its drivers. It could help them to avoid being in a car accident with another car, but it’s also important to remember that the other car needs to drive safely too. As if they don’t, you could find yourself a victim in a collision. In this circumstance, you will need to contact a car accident attorney in your area as soon as possible so you can receive the compensation that you deserve. But of course, driving a car that has safety features like these, is one step closer to improving road and driver safety.

Smart solutions for cargo management: The pickup box also benefits from this focus on providing Silverado customers with the right tools for the job. The box is made from roll-formed steel for increased strength and reduced mass, compared with the stamped beds used by major competitors, and it features a range of smart solutions for everyday life.

Silverado’s CornerStep bumper, combined with handholds built into the new box rail protectors, makes it easier to access the box. The bed is also available with new upper tie-down hooks, under-rail light-emitting diode lighting, and an EZ Lift and Lower tailgate.
For the first time, Silverado 1500 crew cabs will be available with a longer 6’6″ box, in addition to the previous 5’8″ box, enabling customers to carry more cargo while still being able to park in many garages.

Seven models offer provide customer choice: The 2014 Silverado 1500 will be available in seven distinct trim levels. Two work trucks will be available, a 1WT and 2WT, with the 2WT adding features such as chrome bumpers, high-wear cloth seats and Chevrolet MyLink with a 4.2-inch color touchscreen.

Silverado LT and LTZ models provide additional features, such as an 8-inch color touch radio and trailering package on the LT, and a standard 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8, leather seating, and dual-zone climate control on the LTZ. Z71 models with enhanced off-road capability are available in both LT and LTZ trim levels. This fall, the Silverado High Country will debut, giving Chevrolet a fresh new entry in the fast-growing premium pickup segment.

Engineered and validated for demanding customers Truck customers are among the most discerning and demanding in the business. They know trucks inside out – many have owned trucks for decades. They work their trucks hard, under conditions that would shock many car owners. They have tough tasks to do, and they expect their trucks to do them, without complaint. And they expect their trucks to endure – the average age of a full-size pickup is now more than 10.4 years.

The team that designed the new Silverado went to extremes to design a new truck that would exceed the demands of these customers.
For example, GM’s new full-size trucks will undergo more than 6 million miles of durability testing in the torture chambers at the Milford Proving Ground, over the deserts and mountains of Nevada and across the frozen flats of Kapuskasing, Ontario. That’s equivalent to 240 trips around the earth. In addition, the trucks will accumulate more than 7 million real-world miles during final testing, bringing total test miles to more than 13 million.
The increased power, torque, and efficiency of the new EcoTec3 engine family resulted from an unprecedented level of computer analysis, including extensive computational flow dynamics, to optimize the burning of air and fuel in the cylinders. More than 10 million of hours of computational analysis went into the engine program. More than 6 million hours – about 685 years’ worth – of analysis went into the advanced combustion system alone.
Even the basics, like the new inlaid doors, were tested to the extreme, with the doors undergoing nearly 150 truck lives’ worth of testing.
Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world’s largest car brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4.5 million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature spirited performance, expressive design, and high quality.
