Chevrolet redesigned Silverado and its GMC sibling Sierra for 2014. Available in regular, double-cab and crew-cab configurations, Silverado comes in seven variations, from a basic work truck to the tricked-out High Country model. No matter the model, scheduled maintenance is free for two years or 24,000 miles.

Three EcoTec engines -- a V-6 and two V-8s -- offer a wide range of performance and fuel economy. The midrange 355-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8, when properly equipped, can tow up to 12,000 pounds. A six-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels.

Most Silverados will feature MyLink systems interface with at least a 4.2-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity and USB ports.
