 As the most popular and trusted pick-up truck in the country, the Silverado has enjoyed a rich history and strong following in Kuwait. Now, the 2014 Silverado has arrived, raising the bar with its exceptional interior and exterior design and powerful performance that is made for any terrain. After all the improvements and technological advancements, the 2014 Silverado has now become the most powerful, smartest and capable vehicle.

Everything from Silverado's interior and exterior styling to ergonomics and performance has been re-engineered. The new Silverado is stronger, smarter and more capable than ever. Silverado's all-new interior is developed entirely around functionality. Designed to meet the needs of the driver, we intelligently integrated the smartest technologies into the interior, and the redesigned front seats are built for all-day comfort. Forward-opening doors provide easy access to a reimagined interior that provides more rear-seat legroom in Crew Cab and Double Cab models. The innovative MyLink infotainment system features keep you and your crew connected to the world and fully entertained wherever you go. Silverado is also available with the Bose sound system. Crafted from stain-resistant high-wear vinyl, cloth or leather appointments, Silverado's seats are, harder wearing and more comfortable than ever. Having integrated controls within the steering wheel allows you to flip through the displays, activate the available heated steering wheel, change songs and activate the available voice controls without ever taking your hands off the wheel. Silverado's new available 4.2-inch diagonal color- enhanced Driver Information Center (DIC) offers improved gauge placement, making important information easy to comprehend at a glance. It displays your truck's vital stats like oil life and transmission fluid temperature and can be navigated with steering-wheel controls. ​

The All-New 2014 Silverado is equipped with three EcoTec3 engines, V-6 4.3L, with the most torque and highest towing rating of any standard V-6, V8 5.3L and an all-new 6.2L V-8, which is the segment's most powerful engine. The increased power, torque and efficiency of the new EcoTec3 engine family resulted from an unprecedented level of computer analysis, including extensive computational flow dynamics, to optimize the burning of air and fuel in the cylinders. More than 10 million of hours of computational analysis went into the engine program. More than 6 million hours – about 685 years' worth – of analysis went into the advanced combustion system alone. The Max Trailering Package, offered with both V-8 engines, offers class-leading trailering capacity of up to 5,323. New 7- and 4-pin trailer connectors are included in this and every trailering package. When it comes to hooking up, the available Rear-Vision Camera System with dynamic grid lines makes it easier to back up to a trailer. On the road, Trailer Sway Control works with StabiliTrak to automatically apply the brakes or reduce engine power when the rocking of a swaying trailer is detected. Auto Grade Braking automatically downshifts the transmission to aid in going downhill. Tow/Haul mode always keeps the transmission in the right gear. ​

Because the Silverado's rugged nature, its safety features have become more comprehensive than ever. Alerts from the available Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert systems can be transmitted to the driver through vibrations in the Safety Alert Driver Seat. Vibrations correspond to the direction of the indicated alert, reducing reaction time in helping to avoid potential collisions. Audible warnings can also be selected, if desired. The large center screen also serves as your monitor for the available Rear-Vision Camera System. Its dynamic grid lines provide the perfect target. In addition to daily use, technologies like ABS, Hill Start Assist, StabiliTrak and Trailer Sway Control give Silverado's brakes a workout. Our new Duralife brake rotors have been hardened with a special GM-patented process to provide long-lasting stopping power and rotors that can last up to twice as long as conventional brakes.
