Article by Anita Panait, on May 9, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Texas Edition made its debut Monday, May 6, 2013, as part of the 2014 Silverado media drive in San Antonio and Spring Branch, Texas. According to Maria Rohrer, Silverado marketing director, the Silverado Texas Edition acknowledges the fact that one out of every six full-size pickups are sold in Texas.

She said that the Texas Edition combines features that add real value for Silverado customers with distinct badging that “honors the connection between Texans and their trucks.” Interested buyers could avail of the Texas Edition either on the midlevel Silverado LT or on the higher-range LTZ. The Texas Edition brings a number of improvements to the LT version, including 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, a trailering package, locking rear differential.

It also features a body-color outside mirror caps and door handles and Texas Edition badges. The features for LTZ models include 20-inch wheels, chrome door handles and mirror caps, a Bose premium audio system. The 2014 Silverado Texas Edition is powered is powered by the standard 285-hp (212 kW) EcoTec3 V-6 for the LT version, and by a more powerful 355-hp (250 kW) EcoTec3 V-8 for the LTZ.

The Texas Edition also features a quieter and more comfortable cab laden with features and connectivity – like the Chevrolet MyLink -- suited to the needs of truck customers. It boasts of revised steering, suspension and brakes for improved ride and handling as well as solutions for cargo management. Interested buyers in the other 49 states could avail of a Custom Sport package with comparable features, sans Texas Edition badges.

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.
