Chevrolet Silverado Cheyenne Concept offers a tremendous performance and an excellent power-to-weight ratio, the result of a lowered curb weight and the output of the new 420-horsepower 6.2L V-8 engine. This high-performance concept of the all-new 2014 Silverado regular cab comes with a lowered ride height, a rear stabilizer bar and Brembo carbon ceramic brakes that offer improved handling and braking capability.
It is built on a set of charcoal-painted 19-inch Camaro Z/28 aluminum wheels that are covered with top-performing tires. The concept vehicle has one-of-a-kind lightweight features that include replacements for the bumpers, tailgate and inner cargo box that are built from carbon fiber.
The weight is reduced with the use of the Camaro Z/28 Brembo carbon ceramic brakes. Furthermore, the carbon ceramic-matrix rotors are much lighter than the usual steel rotors. These lightweight parts result to the total reduction of about 200 pounds. The concept truck is equipped with the all-new EcoTec3 6.2L V-8 that has an output of 420hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.
This is the highest power ever recorded in the light-duty truck segment. It is not offered in the regular-production Silverado regular cab models. It actually makes the Cheyenne more powerful than the production 5.3L V-8 by 65-horsepower and 77 lb-ft. Giving this 6.2L model a distinct musical note is a Borla performance exhaust system.
Silverado builds on Chevrolet's 95 years of truck legacy, while elevating the bar for full-size pickups. Among the numerous updates for 2014 are a brand-new trio of potent, efficient EcoTec3 motors; a more robust, calmer, more comfortable cab; overhauled steering, suspension and brakes; innovative solutions for operating cargo in the bed and true truck capacity for towing and hauling.
Chevrolet’s clients depend on their trucks to meet the daily difficulties of earning a living, operating a business and taking care of their families. Chevrolet is focused on giving truck clients the most-polished, top-engineered pickups in the market.
The 2014 Silverado will become a vital piece of Chevrolet's three-truck portfolio, created to give clients a chance to choose the perfect truck for their demands. It joins the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD pickups, the best tools for towing and hauling, which were new for the 2011 model year. Chevrolet is likewise creating a brand-new Colorado midsize pickup, which will provide a tested truck capability in a space-and fuel-efficient bundle.
Every single detail of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was manufactured and engineered to meet the exacting demands of full-size truck clients and to fortify Chevrolet's testament for creating the most tried and tested, longest-lasting full-size trucks - trucks with the least general cost of ownership.
