Chevrolet will roll out the 2014 Silverado High Country pickup this fall, thereby providing consumers in the premium pickup segment more choices aside from its LTZ and Z71 models. Silverado High Country features a distinct chrome grille with horizontal chrome bars, halogen projector headlamps and body-color front and rear bumpers.

To be offered as standard on the Silverado High Country are 20-inch chrome wheels with P275/55R20 all-season tires are standard, chrome body side moldings, door handles and mirrors. The exclusive saddle brown interior of the Silverado High Country boasts of authentic materials. It boasts of heated and cooled perforated premium leather front bucket seats with High Country logos on the headrests.

Significant features include Chevrolet MyLink connectivity with an 8-inch touch screen, Bose premium audio and front and rear park assist. Equipped as standard engine for the Silverado High Country is the 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8, SAE-certified that provides 355 hp (250 kW) and returns a class-leading fuel economy of up to 23 mpg highway for 2WD models.

One could also avail of the all-new 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8. Both powerplants offer direct fuel injection, Active Fuel Management and continuously variable valve timing. Both engines could be easily switched to four-cylinder mode to save fuel during light-load driving.

Other options for Silverado High Country include a chrome rear bumper with CornerStep, integrated trailer brake controller, sunroof. Optional features also include navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system as well as a High Country Premium Package which features heated steering wheel, driver alert package, adjustable pedals and integrated trailer brake controller.

Chevrolet’s three-truck portfolio will soon be complete with the impending arrival of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. It follows the lead of the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD pickups, which should prove to be the definitive tools for towing and hauling jobs. Moreover, the development of the all-new midsize pickup is now ongoing, and it is slated to achieve true truck capability in a package that is both space- and fuel-efficient.

Chevrolet designed and developed the new 2014 Silverado 1500 in such a way that it would cater to the needs of full-size truck customers. Chevrolet also engineered the new 2014 Silverado 1500 to boost its status as a carmaker that builds the most dependable, most durable full-size trucks that also offer the lowest overall cost of ownership. Thus, the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is built to deliver its tough capability without any compromise.

As expected, the design of the Silverado’s exterior is a careful fusion of modern aesthetics and the Chevrolet’s strong truck heritage. Overall, its exterior design could be described as functional and muscular yet is also aerodynamic. Its dynamic on-the-road presence is defined by its twin-port grille, dual power dome hood and full-width bumper, as accentuated by strong fender flares and sculpted body sides.

Of course, Chevrolet’s exterior design isn’t just about appearance. Several aspects of the truck’s exterior design are meant to execute some functions. For instance, the truck’s new front end was engineered to enhance sealing, thereby allowing for more efficient cooling. In addition, using the wind tunnel, Chevrolet made sure that the roof and tailgate spoiler allows smoother airflow for reduced aerodynamic drag. Moreover, the truck’s new inlaid doors now fit into recesses in the side, thereby helping reduce wind noise.
