Spied: 2014 Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra Continue Striptease Duet15
As the world anticipates the official reveal of both the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra in December, General Motors continues its semi-secretive testing of the pickup truck twins.
The pair of trucks are distinguishable from the front, but not so much from the side. Both trucks feature the same squared wheel wells, hindering differentiation between the two — something that consumers have been looking for. However, we’re told the cabins of the two trucks will be easy to tell apart, and we don’t mean by simply glancing at the badge on the steering wheel.

Can someone tell me how these look different? WTF is all that comes to mind. Seriously, WTF? They look even MORE similar. I hope this is a mistake or a deception of some sort.
That’s the point of the camo, Joe.
Actually, Joe has a point. A true car man see’s through the camo. They are ENTIRELY not impressive. Especially the Escalade I saw in camo compared to the Range Rover (competition). Oh, did you see the new Silverado interior spy shot? COMPLETE BAFOONERY. Whats up with that dated plastic, turn key ignition, and pull down gear shift lever? Have they not took a look at the new Dodge Ram and Ford F-150? Anyhow… #carryon

As much as we all want to see through the camo, few of us do so accurately. So while you might say that these vehicles are “not impressive”, you really don’t know until you see the first photos — and subsequently until you see them in the flesh.
In regards to the “dated plastic, turn key ignition, and pull down gear shift lever” seen on one of the spy photos, can you say “Work Truck”?
Look closely at the hoodlines. Even with just a peek the lights look different. Wait till you see the interiors.
You obviously haven’t seen the new Silverado interior spy shot. I gather its a base model but from what I see (design-wise), it can’t possibly be that much better in top trim.
Oh, I see the differences up front. It’s the rest of the truck I’m referring to. I can make out some bolder, Terrain-like fender flares on the GMC and a subtle difference to the shape of the wheel cut-outs, as well as a slight difference in the shape of the taillights, but basically that’s about it. Same easily recognizable tailgate, almost identical taillights, identical third brake light, doors, etc., once again. I’m disappointed, A lot of the info I read on these was apparently BS.
The interior really didn’t matter that much too me as long as they were put together right. The bling-bling, cheap feeling leather, Denali badges and all never mattered in the slightest to me either, but I guess that’s where the “big money” comes in.
Joe, your language seems inflamatory and your comments make me wish I had bought those x-ray glasses years ago. Have you seen these trucks without the camo?
No, CraigInIndy, I have not seen these trucks without the camo. And, um, the little remark about the x-ray glasses: classy–not at all inflammatory (no, not the slightest).
Forgive me, I saw “Add a comment” below the story and thought I would share my thoughts. If my passion for GM trucks bothers you, well, sorry. Have a great day, and keep on being uninflammatory. Okay?
Guys it’s easy to think these two are alike. But I’m lucky to have a friend who helped with the design here of the Silverado. Believe it or not, the two triucks had different design teams. How’s that for inflammatory 😉
Bad news these trucks don’t have any camo. these are the new 2014 exterior airbags for pedestrian safety.
I love your comment Wayne.
We had two salesmen from our dealer ship that saw both of the truck with out the camo in september, and they are different in many way then you can tell from these pictures, dont judge them yet until you see them this december. The pictures of the interior dont look as good as the real thing also they had plastic covering some of the dash so it wont look quit like that. did any one else notice there is no O.S. handle above the passenger airbag like there are on all the other trucks.
I think the current design is still the best looking, so why change that much? Love my interior over my friends Tundra, and even he likes my pickup better then his Tundra for comfort and interior layout. I have had a 01,03 and now a 07 Silverado and maybe now a 2014 Silverado.
Noticed how the front truck (Sierra) has hex shaped headlights
