It’s a great time to be a truck buyer. For 2014, Chevrolet launched a fully redesigned Silverado 1500. Sporting a fresh body, interior, and engine options, the newest 1/2-ton from GM’s stable is looking to be a game changer.
The fullsize SUV has three rows of seating for up to eight and comes in two wheelbases, two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive versions, and four trims: XLT, Limited, King Ranch, and an all-new, top-of-the-line Platinum edition.
