2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Pickups Priced: No Change for Chevy, Small Bump for GMC
GM’s latest full-size pickups—the redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 (pictured above)—go on sale this summer, and, right on schedule, the company has revealed how much the rigs will cost. The good news, besides the trucks getting all-new engines with more power and better fuel economy, is that prices barely budge relative to the outgoing 2013 models. The Silverado’s base prices for regular cab, extended cab, and crew cab models hold firm, while the Sierra’s same base prices rise between $500 and $525.
The entry-level versions of both trucks will come with a new 4.3-liter V-6, and a 5.3-liter V-8 and a higher-output 6.2-liter V-8 will be available. So far, GM has only detailed the 5.3-liter V-8—no output or fuel-economy figures are available for the other two engines—and announced that the mid-level V-8 will cost buyers an additional $895 both on the Silverado and the Sierra. A six-speed automatic is standard regardless of engine choice, and four-wheel drive also will be offered. Full pricing will be revealed closer to the trucks’ on-sale dates, but for now, check out the two pickups’ base prices below:
• Silverado Regular Cab: $24,585
• Silverado Double Cab: $28,610
• Silverado Crew Cab: $32,710
• Sierra Regular Cab: $25,085
• Sierra Double Cab: $29,110
• Sierra Crew Cab: $33,210
- Instrumented Test: 2013 Ram 1500 SLT V6 8-Speed Automatic
- Instrumented Test: 2013 Ford F-150 Limited SuperCrew 4×4 EcoBoost V-6
- Instrumented Test: 2013 GMC Terrain V-6 AWD
Comparing base prices, the Silverado is nearly unilaterally undercut by the 2013 Ford F-150 and the Ram 1500—with the exception of the regular-cab version, which squeaks out a minor victory by costing $80 less than an equivalent F-150. Of course, given that the GMC Sierra 1500 costs slightly more than its Chevy sibling, it is undercut by all of its domestic competitors; both GM trucks cost significantly less than the 2013 Toyota Tundra and the Nissan Titan (available only in extended- and crew-cab versions). That said, the price differences between the GM twins and Ford and Ram’s trucks are only a couple hundred dollars, so the race for full-size pickup domination looks like it will remain a fierce one.
