2014 Chevy Silverado High Country coming this fall

Tue, 24 Sep 2013

Chevy is building a truck to compete with the Western-themed Big Horn and King Ranch pickups from Ram and Ford. “Like a finely crafted saddle or pair of custom-fitted boots, the 2014 Silverado High Country embodies rugged luxury -- craftsmanship, authenticity and functionality.”

Yee haw, we guess?

The 2014 High Country comes in crew cab form with a chrome grille and horizontal bars, body-color front and rear bumpers, 20-inch wheels and all-season tires. Halogen headlights, chrome body side moldings, door handles and mirrors come standard.

The High Country costs $45,100 for two-wheel drive models with the 355-hp, 383 lb-ft of torque 5.3-liter V8. It gets either a 5-foot, 8-inch or 6-foot, 6-inch bed. Fuel economy is rated at 23 mpg on the highway. The other engine option is Chevy’s 6.2-liter V8 making 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission with auto grade braking is standard, four-wheel drive is optional.

Both engines get direct injection, Active Fuel Management and variable valve timing. Like other Chevy V8’s, both switch to four cylinder to save fuel.

Inside, the pickup features a saddle brown interior, heated and cooled leather seats with High Country logos, an 8-inch touchscreen, Bose audio and park assists.

Options include a sunroof, navigation system and a rear-seat entertainment system with a BluRay/DVD player, as well as a High Country Premium Package that includes heated steering wheel, driver alert package, adjustable pedals and integrated trailer brake controller.
