The 2014 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab evolved and promised a better experience for its owners.
Its lineup is mainly built for daily use, for small contractors and entrepreneurs. The optional “towing package” allowed trailers up to 11.500 lbs.
The Silverado 1500 Crew Cab offered plenty of room for five people. It had a choice for different beds in the back, and for the first time in the model’s history, the Crew Cab had the option of a 6‘6” long bed. In the rear, it featured a step sculpted in the bumper for easier access to the bed. Upfront, from the bumper to the hood, the entire grille was chromed. The Silverado Crew 1500 had standard 17” aluminum wheels (on LT trim level) and up to 20” wheels were offered as an option. The 20” light-alloy wheels were standard for the Silverado High Country trim level.
The dashboard was plain and simple, yet it offered some modern technologies such as the infotainment system, which could connect via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The Silverado 1500 is equipped with electric power steering instead of a hydraulic type.
Under the hood of this half-ton pickup, there were three engine choices: a 4.3-liter V6, a 5.3-liter V8, and a 6.2-liter V8. All of them had direct injection, cylinder deactivation, and variable valve timing, and all of them where modified for better fuel-efficiency. For the 4x4 versions, a Hill Descent Control was available, which worked together with the Auto Grade Braking from the standard 6-speed automatic transmission.
