How good can a pickup be? Don’t answer that question until you drive the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. Unsurpassed capability, efficiency, comfort and sophistication make this workhorse a thoroughbred.

The Silverado and its near clone, the GMC Sierra, check every box on the list for business customers and offer limo-sized interior space, features and comfort for after hours.

Slick features range from handy on-the-job helpers (rear bumpers with built-in steps, user-friendly controls and a damped tailgate) to creature features (heated and ventilated seats, voice recognition and a touch screen) to safety technology (forward collision alert and lane departure warning). Interiors range from straightforward and durable to leather-trimmed and luxurious.

In addition to its spacious four-door crew cab, the Silverado offers a two-door standard cab and an extended cab with a smaller rear seat and doors. Beyond those choices, Chevrolet also tests the luxury pickup waters with the Silverado High Country, which offers even more features and upscale materials. Silverado prices start at $25,575 and climb to $47,680 for a 4-by-4 High Country with a 6-foot, 6-inch bed.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado also gets my vote for North American Truck of the Year. That award will be announced Jan. 13 at the North American International Auto Show at Cobo Center in Detroit.
