2014 Chevrolet Silverado Interior Fully Exposed
New Design Features Dramatically Different Center Stack
We've seen prototypes of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado before, but we hadn't been able to get a good glimpse at its interior. However, our spy photographer was able to get a look inside the most-recently spotted test car. As you can see, the prominent center stack is the most eye-catching feature of the new cabin. In this particular unit, we see a cleanly-integrated screen plus ventilation and screen controls.
We're not sure of the precise trim level of this model, but we can see that it's equipped with heated seats, which indicates that it could be an uplevel LTZ model. If it is an LTZ, the design represents a change from the current model, which has the more carlike dash design shared with the Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. The LT, LS, and more utilitarian-oriented Silverado models have a different design that mounts the controls higher up on the dashboard, putting them more in the driver's line-of-sight.
Also new for the 2014 model is the row of auxiliary function buttons below the climate controls. Although we can't make out all of the symbols on the row of buttons, pedal adjustment and park assist alert are among them.
Finally, as many of its competitors have adopted console-mounted shifters, it appears that Chevrolet is sticking with the tried-and-true column shifter that's preferred by many truck owners. The use of a column shifter frees up space in the center console and also allows for three-across seating.
