2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country Priced at $45,010

The top-of-the-line redesigned Silverado model gets a price.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country represents the top of the Chevrolet truck range in terms of luxury, and the High Country will cost $45,010 including destination, according to a statement from Chevrolet.

All 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country models come in a crew cab configuration with either a 5’8’’ or 6’6’’ cargo bed, and the base price is for the rear-wheel-drive model equipped with the 5.3-liter V-8 engine making 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Compared with the next-highest Silverado 1500 trim level, the $40,715 LTZ, the High Country adds a chrome grille, body-color bumpers, 20-inch chrome wheels, and special projector headlights. On the inside, the High Country gains a saddle brown leather interior, heated and cooled front seats, and special High Country logos on the headrests.

Like on other Silverado 1500 models, a 6.2-liter V-8 is a $1995 option and produces 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Both the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8 models are available with rear- or four-wheel-drive (a $3,365 option) and all powertrains mate with a six-speed automatic transmission. The 6’6” regular box costs $390 over the standard 5’8” short box in rear-wheel-drive models and $300 extra in four-wheel-drive models. Other options for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country include a $995 sunroof, a navigation system, a rear-seat entertainment system, and a $1345 High Country Premium package that adds a heated steering wheel, a driver alert package, adjustable pedals, and a trailer brake controller.

Compared with other high-trim pickup models, the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country is slightly less expensive than the $45,160 2014 Ford F-150 King Ranch, the $45,880 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn, and the $48,785 2014 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition. The Silverado High Country does boast the highest fuel economy ratings of any of these trucks, with the 5.3-liter V-8 achieving 16/23 mpg city/highway as per the EPA ratings for rear-wheel-drive models; the 6.2-liter V-8 is also the most powerful engine available in the 1500 pickup class, with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country will go on sale later this fall.
