The 2014 Chevy Silverado is one of the most impressive trucks to come around in a long time. With strong engines and a comfortable interior, the truck has quickly risen to the top of the automotive world, winning numerous awards including 2014 North American Truck of the Year.

While picking the Silverado is a no-brainer, choosing the right Silverado for your specific needs can seem difficult. A popular option is the Z71 package, so what does it give you?Essentially, the Z71 package takes an already capable Silverado and turns it into an off-road machine that can easily handle snow, mud, dirt, and rough terrain.


The Z71 package gives you the following features: 

  • Rancho Brand Shocks
  • Hill Descent Control
  • Underbody Transfer Case Shield
  • Recovery Hooks
  • High Capacity Air Cleaner
  • Heavy-Duty Automatic Locking Rear Differential
  • Brushed Metal Sill Plates
  • 18” or 20” Wheels
  • All-terrain Tires

The Rancho brand shocks deliver a smooth ride on all types of terrain. Designed for excellent performance, Rancho shocks have been carrying the load for thousands of off-road and heavy-duty vehicles. Any truck, especially the Silverado, will be more capable and more durable with Rancho shocks.

Hill decent control sets and maintains vehicle speed while descending a steep incline. This system works whether the Silverado is in forward or reverse. It is especially effective when towing, like when pulling boats away from a steep boat launch.

These excellent features make the Z71 package a perfect addition to the Chevy Silverado 1500. If you want a truck that has more features to help you get the job done right, consider a Chevy Silverado LT or LTZ with the Z71 package.
