2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Child Safety Seat Fitment
June 19, 2014
When it comes to the use of child safety seats, our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado leaves a bit to be desired...
I want to be clear. The Chevrolet has all of the means to securely install a car seat. But if you prefer the LATCH system, as I do, you may be disappointed.
The lower tethers in the Silverado are easy to locate and access. But take a look at the loops on the seatback. Those are the upper tethers. They aren't my favorite for a couple of reasons. One, they require removal of the headrests first, which is a hassle. And two, I could not securely attach to them with my particular car seat. Perhaps this will not affect all users. Still, there is a solution. Use the Chevy's seatbelt system to secure the child seat. This approach was quite simple and just what you'd expect.
