2014 Silverado and Sierra Score a Safety First for Trucks

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and High Country and GMC Sierra and Sierra Denali 1500 are the first pickup trucks to receive the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded the 2014 GMC Sierra and Sierra Denali 1500 with a five-star Overall Vehicle Score following the trucks’ performances in the New Car Assessment Program. Along with the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the trucks are the first pickups to earn the award since the NHTSA revamped the program for the 2011 model year.

“Safety is as important to truck buyers as it is to car buyers,” said Gay Kent, GM general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness. “Silverado and Sierra set a benchmark for pickup truck safety by offering a full array of advanced features designed to protect occupants before, during and after a collision.”

The 2014 GMC Sierra is offered in a wide range of body styles and trim levels. The truck is redesigned for the model year, trading weight for better fuel efficiency. The lineup features plenty of standard safety equipment including antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control with trailer sway control, front and rear seat side airbags and side curtain airbags.

OnStar is also standard on the new GMC Sierra lineup. The service includes automatic crash notification, roadside assistance, remote door unlocking and stolen-vehicle assistance. Available safety features include rearview camera, front and rear park assist and a suite of driver aids that includes a lane departure-warning system and a forward collision-alert system.
