Our quick-shooting spy photographers have once again nabbed the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado out testing. What makes this latest batch of photos significant is that the new pickup's redesigned interior was caught completely undisguised.
From what we can tell, the full-size truck will mark a return of the full-length chrome grille bar, missing from the previous Silverado, but present on models older than 2007. Other than that, the exterior is largely camouflaged, including an oval piece in the center of the grille, likely placed by a Chevy engineer with a sense of humor.
The big story here is on the inside, where the center stack gets a refined layout and finish compared to the current model. Atop the center unit is what looks to be a high resolution screen. Below it is a set of preset buttons and very straightforward audio controls. Between the audio and climate controls is an inlet for CD, which means the Silverado will not follow the lead of the Spark, which will be the first car on the market offered without a CD player.
There are also controls for what appear to be heated and cooled front seats, as well as a row of interesting toggles at the bottom, likely controlling all sorts of sensors and electronic wizardry.
Look for GM's next generation of pickups to debut next year.
