2014 CHEVROLET SILVERADO HD: New refinements to the Chevrolet Silverado HD series highlight the 2014 model year. These include an available spray-on bed liner; 4.10 axle on gas models for increase towing ratings, and bi-fuel compressed natural gas fuel system. Strengthening Chevy’s 95-year reputation for building heavy-duty trucks, are the 2014 Silverado 2500HD models, and the single-and dual-rear wheel 3500HD. These include regular cab (2-3 passengers), extended cab and crew cab (5-6 passenger) body styles, offered with short or long bed, in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations. Consumers have a choice of a Vortec 6.0-liter V-8 that delivers 360 horsepower, or the 397 hp Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel V-8. Both are backed by six-speed automatic transmissions. Available features include navigation radio with a built-in hard drive, heated/cooled seats for LTZ models, and a Z71 Off-Road appearance package. Depending on setups, 17-, 18- and 20-inch wheels are offered; painted, machined aluminum or forged polished aluminum. Updates to the trailer hitch receiver enable the increase in conventional towing to 18,000-pounds from 17,000-lbs. For greater fifth-wheel towing capacity, engineers strengthened the pickup box structures along with the rear springs, U-bolts, and revised shock tuning, all of which contribute to the Silverado 3500 HD's best-in-class tow rating of 23,100-lbs, up from 21,700. Similarly, Silverado leads its class in payload, with a 7,222-lb. capacity. There are nine exterior colors to select from, including Deep Ruby and Mocha Steel metallics.
