higher trim grades gain Chevy's new MyLink infotainment system with an eight-inch screen
Automobile Magazine

For some reason, trucks below this (LTZ) trim level only get the tilt wheel function. Why go to the trouble of developing this feature and not include it on all truck models?
Popular Mechanics

The latest MyLink infotainment connectivity app is also available, along with three 12-volt jacks, an SD card reader, 115-volt 150-watt wall plug and a nice slot in the console where you can place your iPad upright and within easy reach of the busy driver.

Fancypants LTZ models can even be equipped with heated and cooled seats and have up to five USB ports.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado offers a few more standard features than before, all at carry-over prices. And if you're willing to dip into the options, you can equip this truck like a luxury vehicle. That's before even considering the new High Country trim at the top of the lineup.

All Silverado models include air conditioning and keyless entry. Silverado LT models add heated front seats, power-adjustable pedals, fog lamps, and parking assist; while LTZ models add cooled front seats, a Blu-Ray entertainment system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and 18-inch machined aluminum wheels.  

The Chevrolet MyLink system will be available on the Silverado, offering connectivity for up to ten devices, natural-language voice recognition, and an eight-inch touch screen. The system allows up to 60 favorites for contacts, destinations, radio stations, or other media. All models now include multiple USB ports plus both 12-volt and 110-volt power outlets (with USB ports in multiple locations in the LTZ), and most models include a 4.2-inch color Driver Information Center.

Separately, with the Silverado High Country model, GM is climbing upmarket with an even more dressed-up look plus luxuries like heated-and-cooled seats, piped leather upholstery, park assist, Bose premium audio, adjustable pedals, and active safety like Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert. A larger eight-inch touchscreen display for the Chevrolet MyLink system is also included with the High Country package.

The Silverado also offers a lot of utility-oriented convenience features. The new CornerStep bumper and built-in hand grip help make it easier to climb up and access things in the bed, while LED lamps built into the bed rails help spot smaller items within the bed. Top LTZ models have USB ports in multiple locations, along with a 110-volt outlet, to power many different chargers, devices, and accessories.

Z71 models add (to LT or LTZ) unique 18-inch wheels plus brushed metal sill plates, special graphics for the instrument cluster, and a 'technical' finish for the interior trim. Z71 models include front tow hooks, Rancho monotube shocks, Hill Descent Control, a transfer-case skid plate, and special all-terrain tires. There's also a locking rear differential that can react quickly to a loss of traction on one of the rear wheels and help regain traction.

GM is also including free scheduled maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles.

 

Conclusion

The Silverado still runs the gamut on features, from simple WT work truck to new, top-of-the-line High Country model.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
