2014 Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra Half-Ton Pickups Get Makeovers

2014Silverado

Perhaps our hopes were unfairly inflated for the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks after lengthy redesign delays. But put aside built-up anticipation over these new half-ton trucks and there's tons of stuff to be excited about. Both pickups offer three new engines, and the Silverado's in particular promises to be its most powerful and fuel efficient ever. Each has also had every inch of its body shaved, sculpted and tweaked for minimum drag.

Meanwhile, the interior design and materials for both have been impressively upgraded, with the Sierra's giving a trendy living room a run for its money.

That looks horrific.

Could not agree more. They took the worst parts of the GMC Terrain and made them bigger...

WOW! New grill and.... They should have put the current Tahoe nose on this truck and toned down the bubble fenders alot more. I guess your just buying it for the new engines. GM is so cutting edge!

Wow.

Boy, I didn't think any vehicle could rival the new Honda Odyssey's level of fugliness but here we are...

cody

hopefully the gmc version is better looking...

From the tone of the complainers, you'd think Chevy was supposed to put a Mercedes skin on a light truck.
If you don't like it, go back to staring at a Smart or prius and enjoy yourselves.

No, we weren't expecting Chevrolet to put a Mercedes skin on a truck because that would be ridiculous. And why should we go to stare at a Smart or Prius? Did anyone in the comments section mentioned those cars? No. All I was thinking was the Chevrolet went way overboard designing this truck. I think the current Silverado looks much better.

You're free to disagree with me, but why get nasty?

Also, where did the Honda recall thing come from? Nobody mentioned anything about Honda recalls on this post.

Styling is very serviceable, and is supposed to have less air resistance. I'm more interested in the improved technology. Gm's cylinder deactivation leads the industry. If the mileage hits 25 or better I'm in.

The GMC does look better though it looks a lot like the new F-150 nose. This Silverado is a step backwards in the styling department and will not help GMs sinking pickup sales numbers.

The engines may be new, but it's mostly GM playing catch-up with technologies already being used by other manufacturers such as cylinder deactivation, higher compression and VVT.

I don't think Ford's streak with the F-150 as the top truck is in any jeopardy any time soon.

Hey genius, GM invented cylinder deactivation. Too bad ford doesn't offer it. Its good that gm is staying away from turbo mills that have more parts to go bad.

carl

i'm a fan of fanboy! sorry jvd but GM did invent vvt.

The interior more than makes up for any exterior shortcomings of the new design. The SLT interior is the best ever for any truck line. Just hope does not come with a new price tag. Us Americans are some gullible people, when it comes to what we will spend on our ride, but mid to upper 40’s has to push some buyers out of the mkt.
