Everything you would want and expect from a pick-up, you can find in the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
The Silverado 1500 is the epitome of strength and power, showing capabilities almost similar to full size trucks. This is made possible because the Silverado 1500 boasts of 3 impressive and new EcoTec3 engines- 1 V6 and 2 V8s. All thee work together in harmony to do a variety of functions, like transitioning to four-cylinder operation for efficient light load driving, effectively combining valve timing, cylinder deactivation, and direct fuel injection, all of which lead to not only better power but also improved efficiency and better torque.
Even the look of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was intended to further boost its power. The wind tunnel-like shape of the spoiler and roof was meant to reduce drag. The Silverado 1500 is built powerfully with full width bumper, dual power dome hood, and twin port grille, all of which are housed and magnified by fender flares and body sides sculpted for strength and aerodynamics. The front end provides better cooling and the inlaid doors minimize the wind noise. With the 2014 Silverado 1500, Chevrolet has effectively and expertly delivered a no-nonsense, no-compromise pickup engineered for optimum performance and maximum capability.
