- Configurator now live for new Silverado, Sierra
- Only available on Crew Cab models; others to come
- Silverado Crew Cab priced from $33,705; Sierra from $34,205
Shoppers interested in GM's all-new full-size pickups can now configure the trucks online. The official configurator for the 2014 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado is live, allowing shoppers to explore final pricing and options for the pickups.
While a micro site for the trucks has been live since January, the new configurator shows full pricing, though it only displays dollar figures for the 4-door Crew Cab model. That one will be the first to debut, while Regular Cab and Double Cab models will follow closely behind.
If you're interested in a Silverado Crew Cab, the pickup starts at $33,705 with shipping in short box form or $34,005 with the standard bed. The Sierra is slightly pricier, starting at $34,205 for the short box Crew Cab or $34,505 for the longer bed.
Like most trucks, a long list of options is available. But before you even get there, you have to pick a trim level. The Silverado has six: 1WT, 2WT, LT, LT Z71, LTZ and LTZ Z71. The new luxury-oriented High Country model will come later. The Sierra makes things a little easier by offering only three trim levels: a base model, Sierra, followed by a mid-level SLE and an upscale SLT. The high-end Sierra Denali will arrive later.
One major option for both the Sierra and Silverado is 4-wheel drive. Both trucks offer it on all trim levels for $3,150 over the base price, so a shopper interested in a base-level Silverado or Sierra Crew Cab with 4-wheel drive will pay more than $36,000 before options.
The trucks have a number of options, as pickups usually do. Depending on the trim level, you'll have many options and accessories from which to choose, from larger engines to a power sunroof. Both trucks also feature available Texas Edition packages for around $2,200 on top of their base prices.
Chevrolet announced that the Silverado's least-expensive configuration -- in short-bed, single-cab guise -- will start at $24,585, while the base-level Sierra adds $500 to that figure.
The 2014 Silverado and Sierra were officially released earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show. Three new engines are available: a 4.3-liter V6, a 5.3-liter V8 and a 6.2-liter V8. Both trucks will reach dealers shortly.
What it means to you: With their configurators live, the 2014 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado are now one step closer to going on sale.
