2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country Takes the High Road at $45,100 Price

The full-size luxury pickup truck market is a lot more heated than most of us would believe. First out of the gate were Eddie Bauer-branded Fords, then King Ranch. Ram followed with its Laramie Limited and Longhorn models. Chevrolet, however? It had LTZ, at least until now. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country rectifies that problem, going on sale starting at $45,100--including destination--and providing a far more luxurious experience than the Chevrolet trucks that preceded it.
For that coin, the Silverado High Country comes with rear-wheel drive, a 5.3-liter V-8, crew cab body style with a 5-foot-8 box, 20-inch wheels, a different grille, and enough chrome that, when it's sunny outside, could be used to make a real death ray.
"There’s a Western flair to the High Country’s cabin that reflects the truck’s polished yet rugged stature," said Maria Rohrer, Silverado marketing director, in a statement. "It’s a passenger environment that’s equally adept when working a ranch during the day and stepping out for the evening."
Basically, it's for urban cowboys and overly prideful yokels with a lot of money to spend. Available options for the High Country include a rear-seat entertainment system, navigation, sunroof, and a heated steering included in the Premium package. A few years back, Chevrolet poked fun at Ram for having a segment-first heated wheel; we can imagine the GM guys eating their words these days. Check out the ad below.

In any case, the truck ought to get a piece of the premium market. Look for the Silverado High Country on a dealership lot near you anytime now.
