2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Five-Star Crash Test

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and its GMC Sierra sibling are the first pickup trucks to receive the top five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

NHTSA only tested crew-cab models of the Silverado and Sierra, but since GM says the crew-cab models will account for 60 percent of their 2014 light duty full-size pickup truck sales, that's a pretty good representation of GM's full-size truck lineup.

The GM trucks beat out the 2013 Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra, which is important news for consumers who are shopping pickups across the truck segment.

    Call me weird, but I'm currently shopping for a new truck and I'm more annoyed with the lack of suicide doors on the double cabs than the increase in crash safety.
