• 0-60 MPH: How Quick is 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 6.2L High Country?

    2014 chevrolet silverado 6.2l high country 0-60 mph video

    We have waited and talked about the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 6.2L engine long enough.  Now, it’s time to see and hear it.  Roman flew out to Austin, TX to test and review the new Silverado luxury line – the High Country.  He grabbed the keys and went in search of a straight and flat stretch of road for a real-world 0-60 MPH test.

    The 6.2-liter truck engine block and most components are shared with the 2014 C7 Corvette.  The motor has been retuned to truck duty with the focus on lower end torque.  And GM engineers delivered an SAE certified 420 hp @ 5,600 rpm and 460 lb-ft @ 4,100 rpm.  The Corvette version is more high revving and makes 455-460 hp @6,000 and 460 lb-ft @4,600 rpm.  The 6.2L EcoTec3 in this High Country Silverado redlines at 6,000 rpm, has direct injection, VVT, variable displacement, and sounds great too!

    The 2014 Silverado High Country can also be had with the 5.3-liter V8 EcoTec3 and comes only with a crew cab, but two bed lengths.  There is the model with the 5’8” bed, and the longer wheel base (153 in) with 6’6” bed.   Maximum payload is 1,957 lbs and maximum tow rating is 9,800 lbs with the 2WD model.

    6.2L MPG is still TBD.

    1. This is my first time watching. Found you on YouTube. Just watched the 0-60 test on the ’14 Silverado. I don’t know the tester’s name but really, wetting his pants over a 7.6 sec 0-60 time? With that kind of claimed power and torque that pig should be in the low 6 second range. The F-150 with 3.5 EcoBoost kicks it’s tail with a mid to low 6 second 0-60. AND it will do it here in the mile high city of Denver in thin air. The 5.0 coyote engine nearly matches the EcoBoost with a high 6 second sprint to 60. Oh and please get your facts straight. The 5.0 coyote engine found in the F-150 can also be found in the Mustang GT and Boss 302 in various tunes. In the GT it makes the same 420 HP as the huge Chevy does in the truck. In the Boss it makes 444 HP out of only 5.0 N/A liters. So simmer down about the Silverado using a ‘vette’ engine. Chevy is still using 1950’s engine architecture. 327 anyone? At any rate, no other truck is nearly as fast as the little 3.5 EcoBoost. Especially pulling a load up I-70 West of Denver. Oh…..why limit the max speed to 60 mph in your I-70 hill-climb west of the tunnel? I’m certain the Ford would have had an even larger margin of victory if you had cut it loose. That was a non-test.
      PS: I’m getting tired of Dodge…oops ‘Ram’ calling their V8 a ‘Hemi’. It’s not. This new version of the their V8 does not have semi-hemispherical heads as in the glory days of the Cuda and Superbird. The combustion chambers have many small angles making it not a true Hemi. It’s just a marketing hook from Mopar. Last summer I worked testing cars for Roush here in Denver. When it came to trucks we had Fords and Rams. Everone’s favorite was the EcoBoost. It flat hauls ass. Next, that new in house Ford diesel. What a torque monster! The Ram’s felt and looked cheap inside and the Hemi did not impress out here at a mile high. Thanks for allowing me to rant! JP
