2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Rev-Matched Downshifts

November 1, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

Our 2014 Chevy Silverado will execute clean, crisp and effective rev-matched downshifts using this gear selector when in Manual mode. It's a nice feature, especially in a truck capable of towing. More full-size trucks should offer this feature.

    That photo makes it easy to imagine how that cheap, hard, and brittle GM plastic feels.

    @nukedetroit GM plastic, Ford plastic, Dodge plastic, Honda plastic, Nissan plastic all made in china just like the vast majority plastic car parts in todays cars.

    Those plastics are all produced to manufacturer spec, hybris. Even the hard plastics inside a Honda are good and solid, while GM still insists on the cheapest garbage this side of a Dodge Dart.
