Texans love everything served big. According to General Motors, the state accounts for about 19.5% of all the big trucks sold in the United States. The carmaker released a limited edition 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Texas Edition to bring more Texans to its showrooms and honor the state.
GM redesigned the Chevy Silverado in 2014 with plans for electric trucks in the future. The carmaker created the Texas Edition from the redesigned model. It offers the truck in large LTZ and midlevel LT versions as double or 1500 crew cabs.
2014 Chevrolet Silverado Texas Edition engine and performance
According to Autoblog, the Texas edition of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado has similar engine and performance specs as the base model. It features an all-new EcoTec3 engine that includes 355 horsepower V8 engines for the LTZ and 285 horsepower V6 engines for the LT. Both engines are fitted with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
If you go for the V8 engine, expect fuel efficiency of 23 mpg highway and a 5.3-liter tank. The V6 engine has a slightly higher fuel efficiency of about 24 mpg on the highway. This model has far better fuel economy than previous models of the Chevrolet Silverado.
Other features added to the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Texas Edition include cylinder deactivation to save fuel, direct fuel injection, and continuously variable valve timing. Overall, you expect to get better performance with lower fuel consumption.
GM has also redesigned the steering, brakes, and suspension. Therefore, you can expect a less bumpy ride, improved braking, and better off-road handling.
If you want to purchase the model but live outside of Texas, GM provides a Custom Sport package with the same engine specs.
2014 Chevrolet Silverado Texas Edition exteriors and interiors
The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Texas Edition has the unique Texas badge on both front doors and the tailgate. Prospective car owners can pick between the standard and short box. They also have a choice of either all-weather and rear-drive drivetrains.
In addition, the LTS comes fitted with 20-inch polished aluminum wheel caps and door handles, a locking rear differential, a trailing package, and body-colored exterior mirrors. On the other hand, the LTZ model has chrome caps on 20-inch wheels, door handles, and side mirror caps.
The interior is more refined than that of the base model. You will notice the stitched leather and logos that adorn various parts of the cabin. The legroom and cargo space are unchanged from the base trims.
However, the carmaker has improved the infotainment system with a more intuitive touchscreen and redesigned instrument cluster. The system also has intuitive connectivity, allowing you to connect your Android and Apple devices easily. Besides, all trims come with a Bose premium audio system that has a subwoofer and six speakers.
