Pros: Expansive passenger and cargo room; well-designed technology features; broad range of models, body configurations, and powertrains to choose from
Cons: Prices rise quickly as options are added; ride comfort doesn’t quite match Ram 1500—it’s a bit jiggly over rough pavement
CG Says: Chevrolet’s redesigned 2014 Silverado benefits from refined, efficient-for-the-class powertrains; lots of in-cab storage areas; and comfortable, quiet crew-cab interiors. It rides well and we like that it doesn’t feel as lumbering as some of its competitors do on the road. Overall, it’s a really nice truck that does most everything pretty well. While Chrysler’s Ram 1500 still gets the nod as our favorite big pickup, this 2014 Chevy is still a Best Buy–with a special nod going to the truck’s refined, efficient engines.
