General Motors has unveiled its all new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size pickup trucks, the most important models introduced since the company was bailed out by the federal government four years ago. Last redesigned in 2007, the near-twin Silverado and Sierra make up the company’s best selling vehicle line and one of its most profitable. GM is believed to make about $10,000 on each one sold.

The General has yet to divulge an alpha-numeric project number for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra pickup trucks that will replace the GMT900 series models next year. (It replaced the GMT800 in 2007.) The conservative restyling and the frame architecture’s common suspension pickup points might suggest GMT925 or 950, but at least the styling differentiation between the Silverado and Sierra is considerably greater, and the increased use of high-strength and hydroformed steel helps lighten the frame and increase the cab’s rigidity. There’s also an additional wheelbase to underpin a crew cab/6.5 foot bed, and all three available engines are new.

The automaker touts the new trucks as both more capable and efficient than the ones they replace. At the unveiling, GM North America President Mark Reuss called them the “most refined pickup trucks ever.”

Yesterday General Motors unveiled its new full sized pickup trucks, the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra. It was a big day for me like Christmas for an 8 year old: People who know me know what a Silverado slappy I am. Given that the trucks are the first new GM full size pickups in years, and since CEO Dan Akerson called it the “biggest launch in probably decades,” clearly it’s a big deal for them too.

You’ll see the new Silverado and Sierra at the 2013 Detroit auto show. For now, I gotta ask: How badly does GM need the new trucks?… The answer?… Badly, and for more than one reason. First, full size pickups consistently fill the top slots on the monthly sales charts. In fact it’s hard to remember the last time the Ford F150 wasn’t the U.S.’s best-selling vehicle. And considering in the last few years Ford and Ram have at least refreshed their full-size hardware, GM had to act, and act quickly.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Price :
At the end of November GM had almost 244,000 trucks in inventory, a 138 day supply, and the company is beginning to throw cash on the hood to the tune of as much as $2,000 in customer cash, that’s on top of the $1,000 GM already was offering on its pickups. GM says part of the reason the inventory is up is by design; it wanted to prepare for the 29 total weeks its truck plants would be down for retooling.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Interior :
A new battle is brewing among fullsize pickup trucks. On top of boasting horsepower or towing capacity figures, it seems the next generation of pickup trucks will also be getting pretty serious about fuel economy. With General Motors and Ram recently unveiling their latest pickups, Automotive News is reporting that Ford is working on the next-generation F-150, which is expected to include a lighter curb weight and higher fuel economy.

Reports of Ford cutting weight and using aluminum to do so on the next F-150 aren’t new, but the AN article is finally putting a possible target fuel economy to go along with the expected 700 to 750-pound weight reduction. Currently, the F-150 with EcoBoost delivers the best highway mileage of up to 23 miles per gallon, which is off the pace of the 2013 Ram 1500 that stands as the fuel economy leader (for now) with up to 25 mpg on the highway. But Ford may be looking at a three-mpg gain on its new truck; official EPA ratings for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra have not been released yet.

Extended cab models have independent-opening front-hinged rear doors, and crew-cab models get shorter front and longer rear doors to provide 4 inches of additional “foot swing” room between the seat and B-pillar. Heated cloth seats are offered for the first time on a pickup. There’s also an extra 2 inches of rear legroom. Customers begged for more interior stowage space, so the glove box grows, door pockets are enlarged, and the center console is configured to accept hanging file folders. Multiple USB ports and a 110 volt plug are provided, and all trucks get either a 4.2-inch or 8-inch color information screen, with MyLink (Chevy) or IntelliLink (GMC) available. Safety tech includes an available camera based forward collision alert system, and lane-departure warning via safety alert seat buzzing. Front park assist is also new. Expect GMC’s Denali model and other upscale options to go after Ford’s King Ranch/Platinum and Ram’s Laramie Longhorn lux business.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Exterior :
Other interesting engine features include a cam driven direct-injection fuel pump located in the valley for packaging efficiency and reduced noise; variable displacement oil pumps that reduce parasitic losses at idle and low loads; oil jets to cool the pistons for sustained heavy duty operation; and cross bolted main bearing caps for durability. The V-8 combustion chambers are closely related to those of the Corvette engine, and were tuned with 6 million hours of processor time to promote stable combustion under all conditions with less detonation so the engines can consistently run with greater spark advance for improved efficiency. Why run in V-4 mode instead of a more even-firing V 3 on the 4.3-liter?… Two reasons: insufficient torque, and running just one cylinder on one bank lets the catalyst cool off too much. (That’s probably why Honda’s V-6 runs in both V-3 and V-4 modes.) Don’t expect the V-6 trucks to spend as much time in V-4 mode as the V-8s can, especially the 6.2. All engines are backed by a six speed automatic, and larger 9.50 and 9.76 inch rear axles on V-8 models enable towing increases to match the improved torque outputs.

The 2014 SilveradFor owners whose work or recreation takes them off road, Z71 returns as a unique model, available in LT and LTZ trim. For 2014, Z71 includes monotube Rancho shocks, front tow hooks, a transfer case skid plate and unique 18 or 20 inch all-terrain tires. The Z71 package also includes Hill Descent Control. Engaged by the driver using a button on the instrument panel, it uses the anti lock braking system to enable a smooth and controlled descent in rough terrain.

Z71 also includes unique 18 inch wheels (optional on LT, standard on LTZ) and unique interior trim, including brushed metal sill plates, a technical finish on interior trim pieces and Z71 graphics on the instrument cluster. Standard on Z71, and available on other Silverados, is a GM-exclusive automatic locking rear differential, which reacts in milliseconds in low traction situations to improve safety and confidence on wet, snowy or muddy surfaces.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Engine :
Let’s start with the newly dubbed EcoTec3 engines for the 2014 Sierra and Silverado, which have familiar displacements 4.3 liters for the V-6, 5.3 and 6.2 for the V-8s but all now feature aluminum block and head architecture, variable valve timing, direct injection, and even Active Fuel Management for V-4 operation at lighter loads. Yes, even the V-6 runs as a V-4, and will claim best in class torque of any base V-6. It also becomes a mainstream engine choice, available in every cab and box configuration with rear or four wheel drive. The 5.3 gains power and torque and is expected to widen its fuel economy lead relative to competitor V-8s. The 6.2 is optimized for towing and hauling. Engineers claim it will top the power, torque, and tow ratings of any true half ton truck, but no official specifications have been released for the new Silverado and Sierra as of yet. They have also challenged us to compare fuel economy of all models against similarly equipped competitors while towing and hauling, claiming their traditional non turbocharged engines should deliver superior real world consumption along with lower ownership costs.
