General Motors has announced that the base 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country, the first special model in the truck's portfolio, has a starting price of $45,010 (inclusive of destination costs of $995). The High Country model will start selling in the fall. The High Country is priced $20,425 higher than the base 2014 Silverado, which costs $24,585, including shipping.
The range-topping Silverado High Country 4WD long box has a starting price of $48,675, including shipping. The features offered as standard include a chrome grille, body-color front and rear bumpers, 20-inch chrome wheels, halogen projector headlights and chrome body trim. The cabin comes with a saddle-brown interior, some leather front bucket seats, a Bose premium audio and front and rear park assist.
For $1,345 more, the buyer can ask for the High Country Premium package, which consists of a heated steering wheel, driver-alert package, adjustable pedals and integrated trailer brake controller. Meanwhile, getting white diamond tricoat exterior paint and a sunroof raises the price by $995. The 6.2-liter V8 engine offered as an option adds $1,995 to the bottom line.
The new Silverado model is slotted higher than the LTZ, which was the top-of-the-line Silverado. The rivals to the High Country include premium pickups like the 2013 Ford F-150 King Ranch and the 2014 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition.
The base 2014 Tundra 1794 Edition is priced from $45,265 (inclusive of a $995 destination charge). On the other hand, the 2013 Ford F-150 King Ranch has a starting price of $44,915 (which includes a $995 destination charge). Ford has yet to announce the pricing details for the 2014 F-150.
