2014 Silverado 1500 Named Fleet Truck of the Year, Notes Ferman Chevy of Tampa

The all-new 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 earns the highest honor from managers of fleets of all sizes.

    TAMPA, FL, January 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ferman Chevy of Tampa is proud to report that fleet managers in all industries and with fleets of all sizes voted to select the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 as the 2013 Fleet Truck of the Year. The award was presented by sister publications Automotive Fleet and Business Fleet magazines. (1)

There were 36 trucks eligible for the award this year, but the thoroughly modified Silverado 1500, available now at Tampa Chevrolet dealerships, received the most votes from qualified fleet managers across the country. (1) The Silverado 1500 offers plenty of features that make getting the job done easier, including a CornerStep bumper, handholds built into the box rail, under-rail LED lighting, and an EZ Lift and Lower tailgate. (1)

For truly tough jobs, the Silverado 1500 has best-in-class towing rated at 7,600 pounds, the highest for any pickup with a V6 engine. (1) Some jobs require even a bit more power and for that Chevy offers a 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine, which is EPA rated at 23 mpg on the highway (2) -- highest of any V8 pickup truck. (1)

Other improvements made for the 2014 can be seen and experienced at Ferman's Chevy dealership in Tampa, including a quieter, comfier cab. Controls were also designed to be easy to operate without removing work gloves. (3) Many fleet trucks function as roving remote offices and the Silverado 1500 supplies ports and power outlets to support multiple devices, plus the available Chevy MyLink system. (3)
