2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Track Weekend Wrap-Up

May 8, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

After frying tires and scorching knee pucks at a strenuous two-day car/bike track weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, what better way to cap things off than with a pit stop at an authentic Mexican joint on the way out of town?

Maybe I was thoroughly starving, but I honestly can't remember the last time I've had such a delicious burrito. Yes, this will be our new post-Laguna Seca food stop from now on.

So how did our long-term 2014 Chevrolet Silverado handle bike-hauling duty for the weekend?

Perfectly. The Chevy was smooth, quiet and comfortable at all times. 

Uphills barely registered with the 355-horsepower 5.3-liter V8 and its 383 pound-feet of torque, even with two sportbikes and a Crew Cab's worth of moto gear and tools.

We averaged 16.9 mpg during our trip to the Monterey area and back. Overall, this thing is a great workhorse. Especially because it doesn't feel like it's working.
