2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Overview


Full-size pickup trucks represent one of the most hotly contested automotive segments, especially for American automakers, and Chevrolet enters the fray with a redesigned 2014 Silverado 1500.

The Silverado 1500 was due for an update, its last redesign coming all the way back in 2007. This latest update brings new styling inside and out, an upgrade in interior materials/fit and finish, and new powertrains that deliver both extra power and better fuel economy. Three cab styles are offered (regular, double, and crew) along with short and standard bed lengths.

Exterior updates have made the 2014 Silverado more rugged looking, with a wider, gaping front grille and more pronounced fenders. The wheel arches are still squared off which gives the Silverado 1500 a unique look from profile. In addition to styling changes, the exterior also adds some features that make the pickup easier to use, including a built-in step on the side of the bumper for easy access to the bed, an easier to open tailgate, and optional LED lighting built into the rails of the bed.

Under the hood, there are three new powertrain options that are either brand new or reworked versions of last year’s engines. Each of the engines now feature direct injection and variable valve timing for increased efficiency and power and aluminum blocks which saves weight. The base engine is a 285-hp, 4.3-liter V-6 that makes 305 pounds-feet of torque. In the middle is a 355-hp, 5.3-liter V-8 making 383 pounds-feet of torque, while the most powerful engine is a 420-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 (torque figures unavailable as of this writing). Each is mated to a standard six-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with four-wheel drive optional.

Inside, the outgoing Silverado 1500 was mostly lacking in interior refinement, a problem that is remedied in the new version. Materials have been upgraded and the fit and finish, once somewhat rudimentary, has been improved with added comfort and class. The controls are larger so they can be operated with gloves. Standard features include USB port, power windows and locks, air conditioning, and cruise control. Plenty of technology is available, such as Bluetooth connectivity, Chevy’s MyLink multimedia system that can connect to up to 10 devices at once, navigation, and HD Radio. Upper trim levels even add active noise cancellation to keep the cabin even quieter.

Safety features have also been upgraded. The 2014 Silverado 1500’s cab is made of mostly high-strength steel. Daytime running lamps, front, side curtain, and side-impact airbags, tire pressure monitoring system, and four-wheel antilock disc brakes are standard. GM’s OnStar system is optional, as is a new for 2014 forward collision alert system.

First vehicle I bought and payed off.

I bought my 2014 silverado 4.3l v6 new from the dealership beginning of 2015. I needed a truck but couldn't afford the big V8 and all the fancy stuff that comes with it. To date (October 19. 2020) I have put 107k miles on it. Routine oil changes and did a full service recommended by the dealership at 60k. A transmission fluid change at 90k and normal wear and tear like tires and such. I moved my entire family from El paso to Utah towing my car along with it. I have had no major issues with this truck. In fact anything I have had an issue with has been because of my own procrastination i.e. brakes and rotors getting too worn out. It has enough power for what I need and is quick enough to keep up with highway traffic. The inside isn't much to be amazed by but hey its a WT edition. Not even a thermostat issue which I dealt with repeatedly with my chevrolet sedan in the early 2000's. I am more than satisfied with this trucm snd would buy one in a heartbeat again. I also don't have anyone to impress. I understand its limitations. Performance, power and drive ability that you can afford is fine by me.

Like my new truck awsume

Like the truck very much great gas mileage for a v8 engine .like the blue tooth and the xm radio .lots of room and storage compartments

Most unreliable truck ever.

by Deb F from Algoma Wisconsin | September 09, 2020

I love the look of the truck, ltz so if course the comfort but the mechanics of this truck is ridiculous. At 50,00 miles both heated seats went out 3 months apart, the air-conditioning unit had to be replaced. The transmission at 120,000 miles went out along with problems with the rear end and I have never pulled anything with this truck ever. So dissatisfied & I'm a Chevy Fan.
