New trim level will be Chevrolet’s version of GMC Sierra Denali model.
When it’s released, the new Silverado will have a new top trim, allowing those looking for the added luxury of GMC’s Denali models to still drive a truck with a bowtie.
The Silverado High Country, revealed in San Antonio, Texas, will feature the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 with 355 horsepower as the standard engine and roll on 20-inch chrome wheels. The interior will be fully kitted and only a few options will be available on the High Country.
The new trim will allow Chevrolet to cash in on buyers looking for something a bit extra within the Chevrolet lineup who wouldn’t necessarily cross the aisle and purchase a Sierra Denali.

Silverado Adds Rugged Luxury with New High Country
- New crew cab model to compete in premium pickup segment
- Unique exterior appearance, saddle brown interior
- Standard 5.3L V-8 with 355 horsepower, up to 23 mpg highway
SAN ANTONIO, Tex. – The 2014 Silverado High Country will further broaden Chevrolet’s portfolio in the premium pickup segment when it joins the LTZ and Z71 models in the Silverado lineup this fall.
Silverado High Country is distinguished by a unique chrome grille with horizontal chrome bars, halogen projector headlamps and body-color front and rear bumpers. Unique 20-inch chrome wheels with P275/55R20 all-season tires are standard, as are chrome body side moldings, door handles and mirrors.
Inside, Silverado High Country features an exclusive saddle brown interior, with authentic materials throughout. Features include heated and cooled perforated premium leather front bucket seats with High Country logos on the headrests, Chevrolet MyLink connectivity with an 8-inch touch screen, Bose premium audio and front and rear park assist.
“High Country will be the top model in the Silverado lineup, with a higher level of premium features and materials with a rich, Western themed appearance,” said Maria Rohrer, Silverado marketing director. “But at the same time, High Country is 100-percent Chevy truck, with the capability and dependability customers have relied on for more than 95 years.”
Standard engine for the Silverado High Country is the 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8, SAE-certified at 355 horsepower (250 kW), with class-leading V-8 fuel economy of up to 23 mpg highway (2WD models). The all-new 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 also will be available. Both engines feature direct fuel injection, Active Fuel Management and continuously variable valve timing, proving the refined power and torque truck customers expect. Both seamlessly switch to four-cylinder mode to save fuel during light-load driving.
Because of the high level of standard equipment, Silverado High Country will offer only a few options. In addition to the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8, they include a chrome rear bumper with CornerStep, integrated trailer brake controller, sunroof, navigation, and a rear-seat entertainment system as well as a High Country Premium Package which includes heated steering wheel, driver alert package, adjustable pedals and integrated trailer brake controller.
