The brand new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup broke cover weeks before the Detroit Auto Show and we were there to watch the truck explode onto the stage.
And yes it literally exploded unto the world stage.
Check out this video as we capture the new Chevy pickup’s official public debut along with the GMC Sierra.
Both trucks will feature three engine choices that promise to deliver better fuel economy as all three engines will be direct injected, come with variable timing and feature cylinder deactivation.
But why read about the new Chevy Silverado when you can watch the debut for yourself in this exclusive TFLcar video from Detroit?
Editor’s note: The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado was supposed to be a sneak peek that we thought was going to have an embargo leading to the debut at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI. Surprise, surprise, the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado was officially unveiled along with the 2014 GMC Sierra.
Once again, General Motors has made two trucks out of one platform. None of the competition does that and some people are still bewildered as to why this practice is continued. Ask a GM rep why and he/she will recite the line about each vehicle’s mission statement.
The bottom line for me is that the Chevrolet Silverado is (usually) a tad cheaper, caters to a younger audience and has a more humble overall personality. The GMC Sierra (usually) has a more premium feel and is packed with more flash, gizmos and premium materials.
Do I think two trucks are necessary? Well, look at Ford and Ram – they seem to do well with one brand, why not GM?
