    Now Official: Chevy Reveals 2014 Silverado High Country

    Chevy looks to take on a premium half-ton pickup market with a new trim level.

    Earlier today photos leaked out of the alleged 2014 Silverado High Country, and now GM has made the truck official. The High Country will serve as Silverado's premium trim level to combat the likes of the Ford F-150 Platinum and Ram 1500 Laramie.

    Like it's competition, the Silveardo High Country is powered by the same engines that will be available in the rest of the Silverado lineup, the all-new 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V-8s. In all Silverado's the engine makes 355 horsepower and 383 foot-pounds of torque. The 6.2-liter will be optional sometime after the truck launches.

    The High Country guise adds what one would expect from a fancied up pickup. Outside the High Country nets more chrome, a revamped grille treatment and exclusive 20-inch chrome wheels. The interior features a unique Saddle Brown color with premium materials and High Country emblems throughout.

    All High Country's will feature luxury items such as heated and cooled front seats, an eight-inch touchscreen display and Bose sound system. An optional Premium Package will add even more goodies, such as a heated steering wheel and driver awareness package.

    The High Country marks the first time Chevrolet has taken a truck to the luxury end of the segment, a duty that has typically been reserved for the Silverado's GMC cousin. Chevrolet is quick to refer to the High Country as a truck with "rugged luxury" - likely a psychological differentiation from GMC's "Professional Grade" luxury treatment.

    Stay turned to GMI later this week as we head to Texas to try out the new Silverado!

    Thanks, I'll save $10k and buy one without the name.

    I'm trying really hard to like that dash, but it's still not doing it for me.

    I like it very much except for the standard wheels, they just seem to be a re-work of the 20 wheels which date back to the Tahoe Limited models back in the late '90's and the Silverado SS model later on after that. I hope they get a little more adventurous with the wheel designs going forward.

    I like it.

    It's stylish enough to not offend the sensibilities of your F150 Platinum driving buddies when you pick them up after dropping off their trucks at the shop for all those Ecoboost electronic and drivability issues.

    Ford will try to top this with a new concept version of the F150 with lots more expensive and intricate gadgetry. It will be called the Unobtainium Edition.

    Not too much of a fan. If they sell them though---more power to them.

    I guess what is the point of the Denali then, GM is getting back into the product overlap that helped get them in trouble in the first place.

    In that interior pic, it looks like the steering wheel is a little to the right of the center of the drivers seat.

    The Denali buyer isn't going to shop a Chevy dealer.

    While I think it looks great for the most part I wouldn't exactly call the interior executed very well. Until we get a full features list, right now this kind of just looks like they threw a bunch of brown leather everywhere and called it a day. I'm sure it well be improved over the model years but right now the inside looks kind of half-assed. The exterior looks pretty good though, I'd go as far as say I like it better then the LTZ trim.
