2014 Chevy Silverado LTZ Z71 in Tungsten Metallic

Chevrolet and GMC have recently released the complete, full-blown, configurator for the 2014 Silverado and 2014 Sierra. At the time being, you’re only able to build out the Crew Cab models, since they are the only ones available right now. Expect the Regular Cab and Double Cab flavors to show up as they are released.

There are plenty of options for both of these trucks when you build your own, which makes it that much easier to set your truck apart from the rest and make it unique to you. Here at Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC we’ve spent a little bit of time playing around with the tool and have came up with some pretty nice trucks, but my favorite so far has been a 4-Wheel Drive Chevy Silverado LTZ Z71 in Tungsten Metallic with 22” wheels, chrome tow hooks, black tubular side steps, cargo box LED lighting, and o so much more.

What are some of the things you’d put on your 2014 Silverado or Sierra?

Aerodynamic 2014 Sierra Cab Design Bolsters Fuel Efficiency

2014-GMC-Sierra-Wind-Tunnel-Front-mediumGMC sought out to create a more aerodynamic, quieter pickup in its 2014 Sierra, so the automaker entered the wind tunnel.  GMC spent more time testing the 2014 Sierra in the wind tunnel than any pickup before it, and the result of extensive testing was just what they were looking for.

“We can’t stop air; we can only guide it through the path of least resistance. It’s like electricity, without the shock,” said Diane Bloch, GM aerodynamic performance engineer, in a press release. “The biggest misconception is that it’s all about single components. But a certain side mirror design doesn’t create a certain amount of drag, its interaction with the rest of the vehicle does.”

To find out which designs guided the air most efficiently, GMC utilized a 750-foot-long tunnel equipped with fan measure 43-feet in diameter.  The massive fan was able to generate wind speeds of up 138 mph inside the tunnel.

GMC modified things as significant as the tailgate to aspects as seemingly insignificant as add-on bug deflectors, in order to ensure that the 2014 Sierra is one of the most fuel efficient pickups on the market.

Sierra’s EcoTec3 and Ford’s EcoBoost Go Head-to-Head

2013 GMC SierraIt couldn’t be done, they said. Nothing could ever top it, they cried. This is the height of powertrain engineering, they called out.

They were wrong.

Last year, Ford introduced the EcoBoost V6 engine for its F-150. It achieved segment-best fuel efficiency, and the critics ate it up. But now GMC is fighting back with the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500, powered by the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine, which is not only more powerful, but also more efficient, than Ford’s EcoBoost V6.

In fact, the GMC Sierra 1500, which will be arriving here at Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC later this spring, achieves the best fuel economy of any pickup in the segment. EPA estimates give it 23 miles per gallon on the highway and 16 in the city (for two-wheel drive models) or 22 miles per gallon on the highway and 16 in the city (for four-wheel drive models).

Even with the best-in-class fuel economy, the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 (for which three out of four GMC shoppers are expected to opt) pounds out 355 horsepower and delivers 383 lb-ft of torque. These figures are up by 40 and 48 from last year’s model, respectively. In addition, the engine gets a max towing capacity of 11,500 lbs—and yes, that’s another class-leading stat as well!

We’ll just call that GMC 1, Ford 0.

Come check out the all-new Sierra 1500 at Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC when it arrives this spring!
