Chevrolet has announced initial pricing, performance data, and EPA fuel efficiency estimates for the 2014 Silverado 1500.

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 rotor and a new bed with standard box rail protectors and CornerStep bumper. 

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.

Chevrolet today announced EPA estimates of 23 mpg highway for 2wd models, and 22 mpg highway for 4×4 models. That is better than any V8 competitor, and beats the EPA estimates for the 2013 Ford EcoBoost turbocharged V6 for both 2wd and 4×4 models.
