New engine gives Silverado unsurpassed city fuel economy for Corry-area drivers 

The all-new 4.3L EcoTec3 V-6 powering the Chevrolet Silverado  will be the most capable standard V-6 in any full-size pickup truck – leading the segment in city fuel economy and helping Corry-area customers save money through a host of fuel-saving technologies.

The 4.3L V-6 also helps Silverado offer the highest-available payload rating of 2,108 pounds and the highest available towing rating of 7,200 pounds.

EcoTec3 engine technology matches Ram HFE’s 18 mpg city, while the 4×4 Silverado model achieves 17 mpg city, the best of any full-size 4×4 pickup. EPA highway estimates are highly competitive: 22 mpg for the 4×4 version, and 24 mpg for the 2WD model.

“The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado offers capability and efficiency for Corry-area drivers, regardless of trim level or engine choice,” said Jon Andrus of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “That, plus the world-class technology, makes it the most efficient Silverado ever.”

2014 Silverado Delivers Power, Efficiency and Value to Corry, Warren and Erie Drivers

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.”
