2014 Silverado and Sierra Deliver

Everyone knows that GMC and Chevrolet deliver the best trucks for heavy duty work and towing. However, there are current reports that they have achieved an even higher standard for their own trucks. Both the GMC Sierra and Sierra Denali 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and High County have been equipped with a 6.2L V8 engine. This option allows these trucks to receive an SAE-certified 420 horsepower with 460 pounds of torque. Unbelievable! This is the most power any light pickup truck has ever seen.

The Silverado LTZ and High Country also have an outstanding ability to tow up to 12,000 pounds when they are equipped properly. The same holds true for the Sierra SLT and Denali models. There is also an optional Max Trailering Package available for certain models. This package includes enhanced cooling, automatic locking rear differential, increased-capacity rear leaf springs, revised shock tuning for increased control and an integrated trailer brake controller.

There will also be two other different engine options available for the Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500; the 4.3L V6 and the 5.3L V8. The 4.3L engine will produce 285 horsepower and 305 pounds of torque while the 5.3L will put out slightly more at 355 horsepower and 383 pounds of torque. The smaller of the engines, the 4.3L, will be able to haul up to 7,600 pounds which is still the highest in the division. The larger of the two mentioned options will be able to tow up to 11,500 pounds when correctly fortified.

All three of the above engines feature the direct fuel injection system along with Active Fuel Management and a continuously variable valve timing. All of these things together have not been found in any competitors trucks. There are also energy saving components such as aluminum blocks and cylinder heads. All three engines also switch effortlessly back into four cylinder mode when not towing a large load. The 5.3L engine actually has an estimated fuel economy of 23 mpg highway which is better than even the Ford EcoBoost V6.
