Chevrolet Silverado Named Pickup Truck of the Year

Pickup Truck of the YearAdd another award to the list of accolades earned by the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. Not only did the Silverado recently earn the North American Truck/Utility of the Year award, but it was also recently named the Pickup Truck of the Year by Four Wheeler Magazine.

In a series of on- and off-road tests performed by the magazine, the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado was able to beat out the 2014 Toyota Tundra and the 2014 Ram 2500 for the award. The Silverado was able to come out on top thanks in part to its smooth ride and “top notch” fit-and-finish. This would have been the third straight year that Ram won had it not been for the Silverado.

“Four Wheeler really puts pickups to the test, on road and off, and the results showcase the capability and refinement that our team built into the new Silverado,” said Jeff Luke, executive chief engineer, in a press release.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Earns High Safety Rating

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released its safety ratings and the ratings are good news for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The Silverado 1500 has earned a five-star rating and is among one of the first trucks to receive such a rating since the NHTSA changed its New Car Assessment Program in 2011.

The NHTSA only tested the crew cab model of the Silverado as Chevrolet expects the crew cab to account for 60 percent of their 2014 light duty full-size pickup truck sales.

Just take one look at some of the safety features offered on the 2014 Silverado and you will see why it earned a five-star rating.

  • Fully boxed frames
  • High-strength steel
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Safety Alert Seat

You can learn more about some of these features on this Chevrolet Press Release.

Another Capability of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Carrying Your Most Precious Cargo

It is no secret that the Chevrolet Silverado can haul the heaviest loads and handle the roughest terrains.

But, what the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is most concerned about is your most precious cargo – your children.

Safety features include Front and Rear Park Assist and the Driver Alert Package with Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert.

Not to mention, its fully-boxed ultra-high-strength steel frame.

With its new half-inch wider wheels and hydraulic body mounts, handling is better now than ever. Its inlay doors and swept-back windshield angle quiet the ride for the interior cabin.

No peacefully sleeping baby will be disturbed by a bumpy ride or whistling wind.

Both the Crew and Extended Cab models feature larger forward-hinged rear doors in addition to more rear-seat legroom, making it easier to load the car seat and other essentials.

Why?

Because the things you carry are even heavier than the things you haul.

The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado will arrive at your local Elkhart Indiana dealership, Tom Naquin, this summer.
