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.
