2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Overview

Is the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 a Good Used Truck?

You can't do much better in the full size pickup truck class than the 2014 Silverado 1500. It has the power you need to get the job done and the cabin comfort and tech features to be an OK daily driver. Better yet, the Silverado 1500 has some of the highest safety and reliability ratings in the class.

There's a range of engines to choose from, including the standard 4.3-liter V6, a 5.3-liter V8, and a 6.2-liter V8. The base engine is adequate for light hauling and daily driving, but the V8 engines are better suited to heavy hauling and trailering. All three engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Silverado 1500 has one of the smoothest rides in the class, and its handling is composed – even around turns or when driving off road. The Chevy Silverado can tow up to 12,000 pounds, which is more than many rivals can tow. The Silverado 1500's fuel economy estimates are a bit above average for the class, at up to 18 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

Overall, the Silverado 1500 has a nice cabin. Base work truck models have some plastics, but they are textured and have a pleasing appearance. Higher trims – like the Silverado High Country – feel luxurious inside, with lots of soft-touch materials. There are six seats in Double and Crew Cab models, while Regular Cabs seat three. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, even on long drives. There's plenty of space for adults in the back seats – though more so in Crew Cabs than Double Cabs. Visibility is limited a bit by thick roof pillars. There are full sets of LATCH child-seat connectors on the outboard rear seats and an additional upper tether anchor on the middle rear seat.

The easy-to-use infotainment system’s intuitive touch-screen controls and abundance of buttons and knobs make it simple to adjust climate and audio settings. The available navigation system is straightforward, too. Some models have up to six USB ports to let you charge multiple mobile devices at the same time. The Silverado 1500 also has some useful features in the bed, like the rear bumper CornerStep, a grab handle, and the EZ Lift-and-Lower tailgate.

Should I Consider Another Used Silverado 1500?

The 2014 Silverado 1500 is fully redesigned. It’s part of the current generation, which includes the 2017 Silverado 1500.

Which Used Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Is Right for Me?

The Silverado 1500 base 1WT isn't worth a second glance if you need more than a bare-bones truck, as it has barely any standard features (just a four-speaker stereo and air conditioning). With the 2WT, you get a 4-inch infotainment system, satellite radio, HD Radio, and Bluetooth. Still, you'll be even better off with the LT trim, which comes with cloth upholstery, carpeted floors, and a six-speaker stereo. The LTZ has luxury features like remote start, leather upholstery, heated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an upgraded 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system.

You can get a certified pre-owned Silverado 1500 through a Chevrolet dealer. For all of its certified pre-owned vehicles, Chevy extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to six years or 100,000 miles and provides a one-year/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. Chevrolet CPO vehicles must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Chevy’s warranty page carefully.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Other Trucks to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or 2014 Ford F-150?

The Silverado 1500 has a lot in common with the Ford F-150, but the Chevy comes out on top in the end. The Silverado 1500 has a nicer cabin fitted with higher-quality materials and a more user-friendly infotainment system. The F-150 has lower safety ratings, reliability scores, and fuel economy estimates than the Silverado 1500. The Silverado 1500 also has a higher towing capacity than the F-150.

Which Is Better: 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or 2014 Ram 1500?

The Silverado 1500 and Ram 1500 are neck and neck at the top of the class. Both models have upscale interiors, comfortable rides, and straightforward tech features. The Ram 1500 has an optional turbodiesel engine that gets better fuel economy than any of the Silverado's engines, but the Chevy earns higher reliability and safety ratings. Ultimately, both models are excellent options in the full size pickup class, so you can't go wrong with either.
