2014 Chevy Silverado Is Raking in Awards


2014 Chevy Silverado Most Awarded Pickup

The Chevy Silverado was completely redesigned for the 2014 model year, and while the sales numbers are already showing that the all-new pickup is the best that it has ever been before, it also has the awards to prove just how effective the facelift really was. In fact, although the newest version of the 2014 Chevy Silverado has only been around less than a year, it’s already the most awarded pickup on the market.

One of the most prestigious awards that the Silverado has managed to secure is the 2014 North American Truck of the Year award. 49 automotive journalists from both the U.S and Canada who voted on a number of new and redesigned models selected the pickup. Factors such as innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar were all considered for the judges’ final decisions.

The awards do not end there, however, Vincentric also recognized the 2014 Chevy Silverado as having the lowest total cost of ownership of any full-size pickup. It is now the fourth year in a row that the Silverado has earned the award. J.D. Power also awarded the Silverado for its initial quality. This is now the second year that the Silverado was named the Highest Ranked Large Heavy Duty Pickup in Initial Quality. The award measures quality of the vehicle after 90 days of ownership.

On top of those three awards, the Silverado has been named the Best Pickup by Road & Track, Best of the Best by Autoweek magazine and Fleet Truck of the Year by Automotive Fleet magazine. Kelley Blue Book has given the full-size pickup the 2014 Best Resale Value Award and it is also the first pickup to receive a 5-star overall vehicle score for safety since 2011 when the NHTSA revised its rating criteria.

With so many awards under its belt, it’s no surprise that the 2014 Chevy Silverado is becoming the most popular pickup in the Libertyville IL area.
