DETROIT – When the American League Champion Detroit Tigers take the field for their home opener on Friday, two of Chevrolet’s newest players – the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup truck and the 2014 Impala full-size sedan – will overlook the action.
The two vehicles were hoisted into place on Monday, an annual rite of spring in Detroit where Chevrolet has been the Tigers automotive sponsor since 2010.
Each vehicle made news Monday apart from the thrill of finding their seats above the stadium.
The Silverado with a V6 engine will debut later this spring at the same suggested retail price as the outgoing model. Chevrolet also announced, the V8 variant of the 2014 Silverado will offer the best V8 fuel economy in the segment and more miles per gallon than the Ford EcoBoost V6.
The Impala, meanwhile, began regular production Monday in Oshawa, Ontario, and will go into product at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant later this month.
