The 2014 Chevy Silverado spy shots available now, the photos taken by Chris Doane Photography and KGP Photography. First, they sent us – and by “us,” we mean all the most important shops – a video of the new Chevy Silverado towing a load up a hill. Now they’re sending us a very specifically angled spy shot from their own photographers.
There’s not quite a bit we will tell from the photograph, but then again that was most likely the point. Nonetheless, it does appear like the dash is padded, it’s a Chevy bow-tie on the grille, and the engine is likely the new smaller V-eight or new V-6 engine. There’s a small element that forestalls us from considering the rear suspension will nonetheless be leaf springs, and the wheel and tire combo almost appears carryover.

We do like the larger Silverado HD-fashion towing mirrors, leading us to consider this specific truck may have stronger towing numbers than earlier models. Here is exactly what GM mentioned in the accompanying press launch:
“GM engineers are conducting the ultimate validation of the following era Silverado mild-responsibility pickups. Along with all of the torture testing, the workforce has paid appreciable consideration to delivering a comfortable, well-balanced experience which is being refined on a wide range of track surfaces at GM’s Milford Proving Grounds. The brand new Silverado will begin production in 2013.”
As you would possibly expect, a few of our spy photographers had been additionally out and about when this particular truck was transferring across the streets of Detroit and grabbed much more photographs, from various angles. That is what Chris Doane despatched us, relating to the same truck, with a greater variety of details.
“After months of seeing Chevy’s next-generation Silverado completely covered in heavy camouflage, we had been nearly shocked immediately to see a production-prepared, 2014 Silverado with nearly all of the heavy camouflage removed!
Below the hood of the Silverado 1500 will be the new Gen V small-block V-8. It’s rumored to be an aluminum block and feature direction injection and cylinder de-activation. A V-6 can even be offered, but which one precisely remains to be a mystery. Whereas it might be the 3.6L V-6 discovered in lots of different fashions, we all know GM can be working on a excessive-output, turbo-charged, 3.0L V-6. Given Ford’s success with their EcoBoost F-a hundred and fifty, we think GM will need to match it.
An 8-velocity transmission can also be rumored to be within the works, however is probably not prepared for the initial launch. The 8-velocity is prone to only see use within the gentle-duty, 1500 models.
Whereas a hybrid Silverado was initially in the works, latest experiences have implied that GM will stop making hybrid variants of their big vehicles and SUVs or, at the least, delay their arrival.
Codenamed “K2XC,” manufacturing of the regular, the 2014 Silverado is currently slated to start manufacturing in April, 2013. The heavy-responsibility fashions, codenamed “K2XCZ,” will follow in October of 2013. Each will likely be built on the Flint, Mich. and Ft. Wayne, Indiana meeting plants.”
We notice that these two vehicles are equally camoed however they aren’t an identical–look carefully on the mirrors, front hood, sidesteps, and chrome accents. We’re guessing this one is the LTZ model.tags: 2014, 2014 Chevy Silverado, Chevrolet, chevy silverado, spy photos, spy shots
