1. 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 1WT
Chevrolet’s 2014 Silverado is just as capable as the other full-size trucks mentioned on this list, but it’s so new you can’t even build an entry-level model at this time. The most basic version available today is the crew cab body with a short bed, but it’s still worth mentioning because it’s not that outrageous.
The base price for this ‘Rado is roughly $33,000 out the door. It comes with a spacious cabin, two-wheel drive and a standard six-speed automatic transmission. The entry-level engine is a brand-new 4.3-liter V6 that has nothing to do with the lump of iron under the hood of the GMC Savana. Thanks to direct fuel injection and variable valve timing it delivers a class-competitive 285 horsepower with 305 lb-ft of torque. Boosting efficiency, it even has cylinder deactivation.
