    This new 2014 Chevy Silverado is in your face

    Well, they are finally here.  GM just unveiled the full line of light duty 2014 Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks.  The overall shape of this new truck is familiar.  It retains the squared off wheel arches and the boxy profile.  Of course, the front and rear fascias are completely redesigned.  The most obvious change up front are the more separated stacked headlights.   In the rear, notice the redesigned tail lights and foot steps integrated into the rear bumper.

    Of course, you get a wide selection of cab configurations, trim levels, and engines.  The big story continues on the inside.  The interior is all new.  I will wait to pass final judgement on it until I see it in person, but my initial impressions are positive.  The dash design is more revolutionary than evolutionary and looks nice and fresh.

    So, how about the engines that power this new beast?  Well, the motor displacements are the same as the older generation power plants: 4.3 liter V6, and 5.3 / 6.2 liter V8s.  Chevy calls the refreshed lineup of engines: “EcoTec3”.  All three motors utilize direct injection, continuously variable valve timing, and cylinder deactivation.  They are supposed to provide increased power, torque, and efficiency.  Exact specifications and MPG ratings will be released early next year.

    This appears to be a comprehensive redesign, but we do not yet have all the specifications to see how this new truck stacks up against the 2013 Ram 1500 and 2013 Ford F-150 pickups.  If the power, payload, and efficiency ratings are on par or better than the others, then this truck will be hard to beat.

    1. Kevin,
      I would say this is a Cab configuration, which is becoming more and more common. Toyota Tundra and Ram have had this for some time, and now Chevy/GMC is joining in. In many ways, this design is more practical than the suicide type rear doors that GM and others used in the past.
