2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Great Pick for Large Drivers

December 11, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

If you've got a lot going on in the girth department, you know that finding a vehicle that transports you in comfort and safety isn't always easy. The main issue is front passenger space. Not all vehicles are suitable for wider bodies, and not all vehicles are built so that larger drivers can sit at a safe distance from the steering wheel. Sitting closer than 10 inches from the steering wheel increases the risk of airbag injury in the event of a crash.

For these reasons and a couple of others, the Chevy Silverado is a strong choice for drivers with a few (or many) extra pounds. The 2013 model was one of the picks in our list of the Top 10 Vehicles for Obese drivers. See the full list here. The 2014 model is similarly impressive, and offers improved materials and build quality within the cabin.
