And it can still do this while still weighing less than it’s previous models. The 2014 has a rather nice cabin as well, cup holders, usb ports and bins to cater to all the passengers. The driver also has a sleek 8 inch touchscreen with even voice activated control, which is the central electrical hub for the entire vehicle. It gives the opportunity for the driver to focus on the road while still having ease of access to adjust, making the ride more fun.

It is still an incredibly safe truck as well.

Now keep in mind, this is the 2014 Silverado 1500. While yes it is a couple years older, and arguably dated, it still is a rather nice truck with great amenities added.
