General Motors has announced the pricing, MPG, and other relevant details of its 2014 Silverado pickup truck, with the base price coming in at $24,585 and going upwards from there. This is the same base price as the 2013 model, so there's nothing too surprising to see. The 2014 Silverado was first unveiled back in the middle of December alongside the GMC Sierra, which looks similar.
The 2014 Silverado has quite a few features and improvements, but a handful standout among them, including the new EcoTec 3 engine, which is said to be both quiter and more fuel-efficient than the previous offering. The cab has been given a boost in both strength and insulation, with less road noise than the 2013 model; the interior has been completely redesigned as well. The bed is new and offers standard box-rail protector, and a CornerStep bumper has been tossed into the mix.
The Silverado is rated at 23MPG on the highway for 2WD midels, with the 4X4 dropping down to 22MPG. Those who purchase this beast of a truck will receive a two-year/24,000 scheduled maintenance program, with up to 4 maintenance appointments included in the truck's price. These maintenance visits include tire rotations, multi-point inspection, and oil changes with filter replacement.
Said the company's vice president of sales and service in the US Alan Batey: “The 2014 Silverado is new from hood to hitch. 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.”
