The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is in for a hell of a fight. Dodge/Ram and Ford have upped their game with Toyota and Nissan following closely behind. Gas mileage has improved, build quality is better than ever and interiors are becoming rather palatial, all except for Chevy. Remember when GM’s trucks were the top of the heap? It’s been a while and consumers are getting sick of green displays and instrumentation from the 80s.
There are a few things that are apparent right off the bat when looking at the body of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado:
1. The nose is thicker and taller, but the overhang looks much smaller.
2. The cab looks larger than the outgoing model with, what looks like, a bigger greenhouse.
3. The effort made for drag reduction is pretty extreme. Just look at how low the front air valance comes to the road. You can bet that the entire body is smoother and there is a significant increase with more efficient aerodynamics.
