Anticipation Builds as Release of 2014 Chevy Silverado Approaches

Bill Jacobs Joliet Prepares for Arrival of New Silverado Pickup Truck

JOLIET, Ill., May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As new pickup trucks continue to get bigger, bolder, and more aggressive, the soon-to-be-released 2014 Chevy Silverado has embodied those trends to create one of the most rugged and uncompromising pickup trucks to date. With a re-engineered platform from its predecessor, drivers can expect even bigger and better things from the Silverado in the 2014 model year.


With the abundance of success from the 2013 Chevy models near Chicago, the 2014 Silverado is set to pave the way for the upcoming series of Chevrolet vehicles. Powered by an EcoTec3 5.3-liter V8 engine, the new Silverado will feature improved fuel economy figures — 22 MPG highway — without sacrificing strength. The engine is set to provide drivers 383 lb.-ft. of maximum torque and 355 horsepower.

In terms of strength, the new Silverado hauls more in 2014 than it ever has before, but it's not just the capacity that sets it apart. Chevy engineers added integrated pocket hand grips to make for easier entry into the bed while LED lamps under the bed rails allow drivers to finish the job, no matter what time of day or night. A Max Trailering Package also is set be available with the release of Chevy's new pickup truck, which will enhance the Silverado's towing capacity. That package includes a rear-view camera, Trailer Sway Control with StabiliTrak, and auto grade braking. The new Silverado features new brakes in Joliet, IL that are designed to last twice as long as conventional brakes.

The Silverado is expected to arrive at Bill Jacobs Joliet in the coming weeks. For more information about the arrival of the 2014 Chevy Silverado, visit or call 815-741-6975.
