2014 Silverado, Sierra Earn 5-Star NHTSA Overall Vehicle Score

2014 Silverado, Sierra Earn 5-Star NHTSA Overall Vehicle Score

DELAWARE, Ohio- Not only are General Motors' trucks some of the most capable, but they're also some of the safest, and they are engineered to be that way. That dedication to safety is paying off, too. As part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's New Car Assessment Program, the 2014 Silverado and Sierra earned 5-Star NHTSA Overall Vehicle Scores, the highest possible rating!

All cab configurations of the light-duty 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra trucks have now earned the 5-star Overall Vehicle Score. The regular and double cab versions now join the crew cab models which were tested previously. In fact, since the implementation of more rigorous requirements in the assessment program for the 2011 model year, these models are the first pickup trucks to receive the 5-star rating!

The 2014 Silverado, Sierra earned a 5-Star NHTSA Overall Vehicle Score as a result of the trucks' extensive use of high-strength steel and complete suite of advanced safety features. Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Safety Seat Alert are all segment-exclusive safety features that are available on the new Silverado and Sierra. These onboard crash avoidance systems are used to prevent accidents from occurring by alerting the driver if the truck is approaching another vehicle too quickly or if the vehicle drifts out of the lane. Safety Seat Alert is a patented warning approach that warns the driver of approaching traffic on the left or right through the use of directional seat vibration pulses.

Additional vehicle technology features also work to keep Silverado and Sierra passengers safe. For example four-wheel, four-channel, antilock disc brakes work to prevent wheel lock-up in most road conditions, allowing for straight, more controlled stops. Or, the available trailer-sway control works to help drivers who are towing a trailer. Should the trailer begin to sway, the technology will intervene with braking or reduced engine power to help control the trailer.
