New GM pickups will offer lots of exciting extra features

Article by Christian A., on January 4, 2013

General Motors offers lots of exciting extra features on its new pickups. During the recent launch of the redesigned Silverado and Sierra, GM executives said that the horsepower, torque, towing capacity, and fuel economy of the new pickups would be what pickup customers would want in order to accomplish their jobs.

Of course, GM, Ford and Chrysler have always excelled in producing trucks. It’s to be expected that the vital specs of these pickups are impressive. Most of the time, the added features are what makes a pickup stand out. For instance, the Silverado has 3 auxiliary power outlets, the cigarette-lighter plugs, three USB outlets to charge your phones or other electronic gadgets, and a 110-volt outlet.

According to Chris Hilts, the Silverado interior design manager, a house can be powered by what’s inside the truck. The inside of the bed can be illuminated by LED lights under the truck bed's rails. This will surely be appreciated by anyone who has ever loaded or unloaded a truck when it’s dark and by those who are looking for things under a tonneau cover.

The CornerStep certainly makes it easier to get into the bed without having to lower the tailgate. This little step integrated into the bumper's rear corners and the handhold at the right location on the box rail protectors are very practical features.

Chevrolet has taken the veil off the new 2014 Silverado 1500 full-size pickup, which has been designed and engineered to be the most powerful, most intelligent, and most capable Silverado so far.

Building on the carmaker’s 95 years of truck heritage, the new Silverado sets new standards for full-size pickups. For the 2014 model year, the new Silverado is available with three EcoTec3 engines and now features revised steering, suspension and brakes. It also now boasts of a stronger, yet more comfortable cab and is now more than capable for any towing and hauling challenges. In addition, the newest Silverado features a host of solutions for managing cargo in the bed.

Mark Reuss, president of GM North America, noted that customers typically rely on their pickup trucks for their daily activities – whether earning a living, running a business or taking care of their families. Reuss noted that the Silverado represents a part of Chevrolet’s commitment to providing these customers the most-refined and the best-engineered pickups.

The 2014 Silverado 1500 will be joining the Silverado 2500 and Silverado 3500 HD models as part of Chevrolet's three-truck portfolio. These three trucks allow customers to choose the right Silverado truck for their needs, whether for towing and hauling. In addition, the carmaker is currently developing an all-new Colorado midsize pickup, which is conceived to deliver truck capabilities in a spacious and fuel-efficient manner.
