Honors 2014 Chevrolet Impala and Silverado

Wed, Jan 15 2014

DETROIT – picked all-new models from Chevrolet – the Impala sedan and the Silverado full-size pickup – as its Best Car and Best Truck of 2014, awards presented each January during the North American International Auto Show.

The nominees’ attention to innovation, quality and value influences the vehicles chosen. Each category has six nominees.

“Winning just one of these awards for an automaker is pretty tough, given the high number of quality cars and trucks that debut each year,” said Patrick Olsen, editor-in-chief of “For Chevrolet to grab both awards shows the depth of their ability to build desirable vehicles.”

The Silverado, completely redesigned for the 2014 model year, earned high marks for its chassis strength, redesigned interior and MyLink connected infotainment system.

“Winning these awards is a huge honor for Chevrolet,” said Alan Batey, General Motors senior vice president of Global Chevrolet. “The fact that the top vehicle in both these categories is a Chevrolet speaks volumes about the strength of our entire portfolio.”

Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world's largest car brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4.9 million cars and trucks a year.  Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature spirited performance, expressive design, and high quality.
