2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Great Gauges
November 22, 2013
I'm a fan of the instrument panel in our long-term 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. To start, I like that the designers didn't try to get too fancy or clever about it.
All the analog gauges that have been in GM trucks for eons make a return here, and they're logically grouped: Two main dials on the bottom and a row of secondary dials up top. It's an attractive layout, and it leaves room in the middle for a very modern and useful digital trip computer display.
The trip computer looks right at home with the analog stuff. Its graphics and font are well matched to the other dials. And the information you find as you page through its various screens supplements the other gauges. There's a speed limit display if you like to monitor that, and here's the transmission temperature gauge you'd probably bring while towing. Overall, this is one of my favorite functional/stylistic elements of the Silverado's cab.
