Chevrolet and Crotty Chevrolet Buick recently announced initial pricing, performance data, and EPA fuel efficiency estimates for the 2014 Silverado 1500, raising the bar in Corry, Warren and Erie’s fiercely competitive light-duty pickup segment.

Manufacturer’s suggested retail prices for the new 2014 Silverado regular cab will start at $24,585, including a $995 destination freight charge, the same base price as the 2013 model.  For that price, the 2014 Silverado regular cab, which starts production this summer, will include a number of major improvements:

  • A more powerful, more efficient EcoTec3 engine,
  • A six-speed automatic transmission,
  • A stronger, quieter cab with an all-new interior,
  • Four-wheel disc brakes with Duralife rotors
  • A new bed with standard box rail protectors and CornerStep bumper

The base starting prices for the Silverado crew cab, the first model to be available in Crotty Chevrolet Buick’s showroom later this spring, and for the new double cab Silverado, which replaces the extended cab, also will be the same as for the corresponding 2013 models.

Corry, Warren and Erie area buyers of all 2014 Silverados also will receive a standard scheduled maintenance program for two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. Up to four maintenance visits are included in the price of the vehicle, each one of which includes a regularly scheduled oil change, oil filter replacement, tire rotation and multi-point vehicle inspection, based on the schedule in the vehicle owner’s manual.

“The 2014 Silverado is all-new, inside and out,” said Robert Crotty of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “Our local area pick-up owners will find that the new Silverado is an excellent choice that combines innovative features and equivalent pricing to the 2013 models. The 2014 Silverado is sure to wow our customers.”

Proven V-8 power with better efficiency than a turbo V-6

The 2014 Silverado launches later this spring with crew cab models equipped with the all-new 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8, which is expected to power three out of four Silverado 1500s.

The all-new 2014 Silverado will offer Erie, Warren, Crawford and Chautauqua county area drivers an EPA estimated 23 mpg highway for 2wd models, and 22 mpg highway for 4×4 models. That is better than any V-8 competitor, and beats the EPA estimates for the 2013 Ford EcoBoost turbocharged V-6 for both 2wd and 4×4 models.

Best available towing rating of any light-duty pickup

Demonstrating the capability of the 2014 Silverado and its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 engine, double cab 2WD models equipped with the available max towing package, available later this year, will have towing ratings of up to 11,500 pounds, more than any light duty pickup currently on the market.

To further save Corry, Erie, Warren and Jamestown, NY customers money and reduce inconvenience, Silverado’s 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8 is designed to operate on regular 87 octane gasoline even when towing or hauling.

Seamlessly switch to four-cylinder operation 

Silverado’s combination of capability and efficiency results in part from its EcoTec3 engines, which provide the proven power of a large-displacement truck engine when needed, then switch seamlessly to four-cylinder operation under lighter loads.

All three EcoTec engines feature direct fuel injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing, a combination not found in competitive trucks. The engines also use a compact overhead valve design and weight-saving components such as aluminum blocks and cylinder heads to reduce the mass of the engines for additional energy savings.

Among the other updates for 2014 are a stronger, quieter cab; revised steering, suspension and brakes; and ingenious solutions for managing cargo in the bed.

The broadest portfolio, the right tools for the job 

The 2014 Silverado 1500 crew cab will be joined later this year by a regular cab model and a new double cab model, which replaces the extended cab and features forward-hinged rear doors for easier access to the back seat.  Also coming soon are new heavy duty pickups and an all-new midsize truck based on the successful global Colorado.
