2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Turning Circle
March 21, 2014
I like driving big trucks. Towering over the passing traffic is a pretty empowering feeling.
What I don't like is parking big trucks. And our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is no exception. Our two-wheel-drive crew cab Chevy with a 5.8-foot bed measures over 19 feet long and 6.5 feet wide. That sorta bulk comes with a 47.2-foot turning circle, which often makes tight parking lot maneuvers very challenging.
For comparison, a 2014 Chevrolet Traverse crossover measures 17 feet long and is an inch-and-a-half narrower than the Silverado. But its turning circle is nearly 7 feet smaller at 40.4 feet.
Sure, a Traverse doesn't have the same hauling capabilities as a Silverado, but it's much easier to drive if you don't need an open bed.
