2014 Chevrolet Silverado in Boston Area Scores a Safety First for Trucks
New Chevrolet crew cab receives first five-star scores under new rating system
NHTSA only tested the crew cab models of the Silverado. Chevrolet expects crew cab models to account for 60 percent of their 2014 light duty full-size pickup truck sales.
“Safety is important to Boston-area Silverado owners,” said Mark Buck of Mirak Chevrolet. “This designation by NHTSA confirms that the 2014 Silverado delivers top safety performance.”

The Silverado offers Boston-area enthusiasts fully boxed frames, extensive use of high-strength steel, and several segment-exclusive safety features are available, including Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Safety Alert Seat.
Safety Alert Seat warns the driver of potential traffic danger using directional vibration pulses from the seat cushion. The patented warning approach is tied to all of the on-board crash avoidance systems.
Forward collision alert technology helps prevent frontal crashes by alerting the driver when the truck is closing in on a vehicle ahead too quickly, giving him or her additional time to react and avoid a crash.
Lane Departure Warning technology alerts the driver when the truck drifts over a lane line when traveling at least 35 mph.
Rear Vision Camera with Dynamic Guidelines allows the driver, when in reverse, to view objects directly behind the vehicle via the radio screen in the center stack, allowing for easier parking and backing maneuvers.
New, standard lap belt pretensions in the front-seat outboard safety belts.
Six standard air bags and 360-degree sensor system, including dual-stage frontal air bags, head-curtain side-impact air bags with rollover protection, and seat-mounted side-impact air bags.
Four-wheel, four-channel, antilock disc brakes (ABS) that help provide straight, more controlled stops by preventing wheel lock-up in most road conditions.
OnStar is available, using GPS and cellular phone technology to automatically call for help in the event of crash. OnStar service also includes MyLink mobile apps, which offer vehicle information and OnStar services via the customer’s smartphone.
