The awards for the popular Chevrolet Silverado just keep coming. Automotive and Business Fleet magazines have named the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 the 2013 Fleet Truck of the Year, and Four Wheeler magazine bestowed it with the 2014 Pickup Truck of the Year award. This year’s Chevy Silverado is redesigned from top to bottom and loaded with new features guaranteed to please any pickup truck aficionado.
The Silverado is a working man’s truck, with features throughout designed to make it an efficient vehicle for any job site. With a CornerStep bumper complete with handholds built into the box rail, LED lighting, upper tie-down hooks, an EZ lift and lower tailgate, any work task is made easier. In addition the truck sports new EcoTec3 engines consisting of a V-6 and two V-8’s, the best in-class towing with a rating of 7,600 pounds, improved steering, suspension and brakes, the highest available payload rating of 2,108 pounds, and better cargo management in the bed. It also sports a tasteful updated interior with features geared specifically towards truck consumers.
With this award winning combination of power and comfort, riding and working in this truck is a genuine pleasure. In addition, this truck has the best-in-class V8 fuel economy, the best pickup coverage in this country, best available towing capacity of any full size pickup, and is the quietest full size pickup available.
Given all of these award winning features it’s no wonder the accolades just keep coming. Sherb Brown, vice president and group publisher for Bobit Business Media’s FleetGroup states “The Truck of the Year award is voted on every year by fleet managers, making this a real honor for vehicle manufacturers that serve this professional segment.” John Cappa, Four Wheeler’s editor, says “The 2014 Silverado offers a great balance of suspension travel, power, braking, traction, and comfort. One aspect our testers appreciated was the solid overall build as evidenced by simply sitting in the quiet interior. It was like being in a vault, even over extremely jumbled and rocky terrain at speed.”
Clearly, it’s no mystery why the Chevrolet Silverado is the recipient of two more automotive awards. This is a truck designed and built to get any job done with efficiency and comfort, while also saving hard earned dollars. This is a truck sure to capture the heart of working America.
