2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country and GMC Sierra Denali Spied





AutoBlog wrote:
Spy photographers have spotted the new Chevrolet Silverado High Country and GMC Sierra Denali out on public streets for a little testing. From the looks of things, the Silverado will receive a much-differentiated front fascia along with special badges and those honking 20-inch chrome wheels. Expect to find a more posh interior as well. Likewise, the Sierra Denali will wear a tweaked nose with the familiar Denali bling. The one of the GMC trucks spotted here rolls on 21-inch gunmetal wheels instead of the 20-inch chrome pieces of the High Country.

Word has it both trucks will go on sale after the Texas State Fair this summer. While General Motors hasn't said for certain what we can expect to find under the hood, we'd be surprised to see anything outside of the range of engines found in the standard Silverado and Sierra models. That means buyers should be able to get their hands on the efficient, 23-miles per gallon 5.3-liter V8.

Hopefully this new front clip on the Upscale Chevy will be a little more appealing.

I hope GM's new motto isn't: The more things change, the more they stay the same.

I highly dislike the large diameter rims on a truck with such small tires.

We have similiar tires on our Yukon, and I hate them. Too harsh a ride.

Completely agree and it is one reason why we bought a 1LT Cruze since it has 16" wheels where all other models have 17/18s.

I'm sure it'll suck come time to replace the rubber on those larger rims as well. I personally wouldn't want more than 18's on a truck. I don't mind the look of the large rim / low profile tire but as mentioned above, the ride suffers too much to make sense for me.

I just replace the 20's on they Yukon, actually it wasn't too bad, $796 including tax for 4 at Costco, Bridgestone 60,000 mile warranty.

I had a similar experience with the our previous Yukon Denali, tires in the $800 range for the set out the door. Not as painful as imagined.

Maybe its my age, but I'm in tune with some of the other comments on wheel tire proportion. The 21's pictured here look odd, and the 22's on say the F150 Limited look out of proportion.

It's odd how much GM resists sheetmetal changes. I recall Dodge's revolutionary 1994 change mimicking a semi's front end. Heck, now semi front ends are more streamlined and aerodynamic appearing than even GM, Ford, and Ram designs.

I think GM was trying to rekindle some of the GMT400 design into the new trucks. I'm not certain they succeeded, but a year plus from now if we still have an economy the market will likely indicate acceptance or not.
