2014 Chevrolet Silverado: The CornerStep Bumper

November 18, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

I know not all the editors on staff at Edmunds are in love with the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500's CornerStep bumper, especially compared to Ford's "man step."

But I find Chevy's version easy-to-use with a perfect step-up height and a natural handhold integrated into the top of the bed. Even with the tailgate up this setup still makes it simple to hop up into the bed.

With the tailgate already down, it's beyond easy. While the CornerStep bumper isn't conducive to climbing back down like Ford's step is, I just jump off anyway, whether there's a step or not. That's how you get down from a pickup.

And, unlike Ford's step, with the Chevy there's zero installation required.
