2014 Chevrolet Silverado
2014 Chevrolet Silverado crew cab models are equipped with the all-new 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8, which is expected to power three out of four Silverado 1500s. EPA estimates 23 mpg highway for two-wheel-drive models and 22 mpg highway for four-wheel-drive models.
Silverado’s 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8 is SAE certified at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, with more than 300 pound-feet of torque available from 2,000 to 5,600 rpm for responsive performance under a broad range of real-world conditions.
Demonstrating the capability of the 2014 Silverado and its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 engine, double cab two-wheel-drive 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 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.
Silverado will also offer later this year a standard 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V-6 that is expected to offer exceptional torque and towing capability for a standard V-6, and an all-new 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V-8, with even more power, torque and towing capability than the 5.3-liter V-8. Additionally, 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. www.chevrolet.com
