2014 GMC Sierra 1500 : The GMC version of the Silverado offers its own distinctive look with unique body panels, hoods, front grilles, headlights and taillights.

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel : New for 2014, Ram will be the first to offer a diesel option for half-ton buyers. The existing 1500 is a truck that has impressed many since its 2013 redesign, but the added diesel option for 2014 will result in impressive engine power paired with great fuel economy.

2014 Ram 2500/3500 HD : Following the 2013 redesign of the 1500, it is the 2500/3500 HD's turn for 2014. This redesign comes with an upgraded frame, front suspension and Cummins option, but the biggest news is included heavy-duty, load-leveling airbag spring option for serious towers.

2014 Toyota Tundra : Current Tundra owners raved so much about the truck's powertrain that the 2014 makeover focused almost entirely on interior, exterior and design changes.
