Our quick-shooting spy photographers have once again nabbed the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado out testing. What makes this latest batch of photos significant is that the new pickup's redesigned interior was caught completely undisguised.

From what we can tell, the full-size truck will mark a return of the full-length chrome grille bar, missing from the previous Silverado, but present on models older than 2007. Other than that, the exterior is largely camouflaged, including an oval piece in the center of the grille, likely placed by a Chevy engineer with a sense of humor.

The big story here is on the inside, where the center stack gets a refined layout and finish compared to the current model. Atop the center unit is what looks to be a high resolution screen. Below it is a set of preset buttons and very straightforward audio controls. Between the audio and climate controls is an inlet for CD, which means the Silverado will not follow the lead of the Spark, which will be the first car on the market offered without a CD player.

There are also controls for what appear to be heated and cooled front seats, as well as a row of interesting toggles at the bottom, likely controlling all sorts of sensors and electronic wizardry.

Look for GM's next generation of pickups to debut next year.

      "...the Silverado will not follow the lead of the Spark, which will be the first car on the market offered without a CD player." Wow, they had CD players on the Model T? Henry was indeed ahead of his time.

        It says first car on the market, I could be wrong, but I think that usually means "car you can buy new today". Since outside of maybe a restoration or kit car or something, you can't really get a Model T "New", and even then most of those places would probably sneak in a cd player somehow, it seems like it could be legit.

      I have some serious advice for GM and I am total GM fan. Thier transmission and engines are fantastic however should have brought out the small liter diesel for the half ton truck. The interior looks like the work truck as GM seems to like to split the dash between their work truck and upper end models. Which I really do not understand since this really doesnt make you a differentiator in the industry or set you apart from being better. People who want a work truck still want a nice interior. My recommendation would that they would take the Delali or Cadalac dash with the larger LCD screen and put it in the LT/LTZ models. For those who think trucks are work trucks... You need to start looking at what Ford and RAM has been doing. They have great technologies such has heated steering, cooling seats, electronic folding mirrors, built in inverters, ect. GM has completely dropped the ball. Chevy has only been seperating itself with quality transmissions and motors. The others are redesiging those components and when they get their motors\transimission quality and efficiecy proven then GM will really hurt!! So GM... this is your last ditch effort to pull off some great technology and design in you LT\LTZ models.

        Are you crazy. A xl superduty has none of those fancy things, as does the st on the dodge, and WT on the chevy. Using a king ranch for a work truck is just stupid anyway.

        This isn't the W/T interior. A work truck doesn't have (or need) heated and cooled seats.

      It looks like the grill might actually be getting too big. On top of that, it's hard to tell under wraps but it doesn't look like it changed must either and the interior is kacking.

      Wonder if they will finally join everyone else and have a floor shifter on higher trimmed full console models.

      Much better than the cheap, A.D.D. designed mess that's in the Eff-one Fiddy

        thats subjective matt, nice thing is though the competition between the Big Three when it comes to their pickups is RELENTLESS....going to be good for consumers. Each of the three has its strengths and weakness's...most excellent....

          He's just pissed because this interior isn't ANYWHERE near the 'Eff-one Fiddy's', even the RAM's. I don't understand why a multi-surface/texture look is a bad thing? Do people actually PREFER the solid plastic piece with holes stamped for the vents and clusters? I guess it comes down to how easily confused one is....the more easily confused you are...the simpler you like things. I can't wait to hear the Chebby boys' excuses when this thing's unwrapped with fewer changes than the last 150 update...cuz that's how it's looking.

      I'm really curious how anyone can determine the quality of the interior materials from a couple of images. Thats rather incredible if you can do that without seeing or touching them in person. Hmm... I like the look of the interior. Its very modern and ties in with other interior designs in the other Chevy models. You don't have to like it, but, it is certainly better looking than a 90s 1500 interior.

        As an addendum to my previous post, it looks like they could be testing the cooling system with the next gen grille under load (towing a trailer in the desert).

      I'm all for real buttons and switch gear, but that looks super cheap and dated.

      Hope it gets crappy gas mileage like the older model just to haul my five hundred pound butt.

      If the Tahoe / Suburban interior looks like that, you can count on failure.
