To make the new 2014 Silverado pickup more appealing Chevrolet is adding a new luxurious trim level called High Country. To be launched this fall, the high Country will sit above the existing LTZ and Z71 models in the Silverado lineup and offers a more sophisticate approach to trucking.
On the outside this model is distinguished by its unique chrome grille with horizontal chrome bars, halogen projector headlamps and body-color front and rear bumpers. Unique 20-inch chrome wheels with P275/55R20 all-season tires. It also features more chrome work than normal models, on body side moldings, door handles and mirrors.
The interior is particularly nice, what with exclusive saddle brown leather covering pretty much everything. The highlights of the equipment list include heated and cooled perforated premium leather front bucket seats with High Country logos on the headrests, Chevrolet MyLink connectivity with an 8-inch touch screen, Bose premium audio and front and rear park assist.
The default engine for this Silverado is a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 with 355 horsepower which does 23 mpg in the 2WD models. But you can also opt for the new 6.2 liter V8 that features direct fuel injection, Active Fuel Management and continuously variable valve timing.
Even though this model is pretty well-equipped, there is still a couple of optional extras you might be interested in. They include: chrome rear bumper with CornerStep, integrated trailer brake controller, sunroof, navigation, and a rear-seat entertainment system as well as a High Country Premium Package which includes heated steering wheel, driver alert package, adjustable pedals and integrated trailer brake controller.
