    Meet The New 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD

    Chevrolet is introducing the redesigned 2024 Silverado HD. The 2024 lineup, which heads into production in early 2023,  features powertrain upgrades, an overhauled interior and trailer tech improvements along with infotainment and active safety tech upgrades.

    “We’ve designed the Silverado HD to be our customers’ favored choice for true truck capability,” said Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet. “The enhancements to the 2024 model build on its core strengths to provide an even stronger balance of the design, strength and confidence that makes tackling the hard jobs, including trailering, easier and more convenient than ever.”

    2024 Silverado Heavy Duty


    The 2024 lineup includes 2500HD and 3500HD models in Regular Cab, Double Cab and Crew Cab configurations. Dual-rear-wheel models are available on 3500HD and they support the lineup’s highest trailering capacity: 36,000 pounds. Five trims launch initially: Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country trims. The first-ever HD ZR2 trim arrives later in the model year.

    Powertrain


    The big news for the powertrain is that for the first time,  an Allison 10-speed automatic is standard on both of the HD's powertrains: a standard 6.6L V-8 gas engine and the available Duramax turbo-diesel. Chevy says it replaces the gas engine’s previous six-speed automatic, offering smaller “steps” between the gears, which enables the 6.6L gas engine to hold closer to its peak power for longer periods.

    Chevy says the result is a more confident feeling of on-demand power, regardless of whether the truck is towing a trailer. When it comes time to tow, the 10-speed configuration helps channel every single pound-foot of torque to the tires in every gear. In turn, the 2024 Silverado HD’s Gross Combined Weight Rating with the 6.6L gas engine increases to 26,000 pounds, up from 24,000 pounds previously.

    Additionally, Chevy says the 10-speed design optimizes grade braking with the gas engine, with the closer gear ratios enabling greater engine-braking control. That, in addition to precise tuning for smooth shifts and quicker downshifts, complements the enhanced feeling of on-demand power, greater control, precision and refinement.

    Duramax turbo-diesel

    An updated Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel V-8 engine results in more power, more torque and greater refinement. Overall, diesel horsepower and torque numbers increase to 470 horsepower and 975 lb.-ft. of torque, per SAE J1349.  Chevy says engineers made additional changes and upgrades to enhance overall performance and produce a more efficient combustion. Add to that, they also enhanced low-end torque production by up to 25% which improves performance at low speeds or climbing grades, and particularly when trailering.

    Exterior Design


    The 2024 Silverado HD's redesigned front-end features a new fascia, new headlights, new grille and more.  It takes cues from the Silverado 1500 with new C-shaped LED graphic lamps. New, bold, headlights on LTZ, ZR2 and High Country models feature new dual-projector technology that split the main and high beams into dual functions. Also, as owner’s approach or depart their 2024 Silverado HD, an animated lighting sequence welcomes or bids them farewell from the truck.

    Additional exterior updates include: standard tow hooks, and “CHEVROLET” lettering featured on the hood scoop. Six new exterior colors have been added as well: Sterling Gray, Dark Ash, Radiant Red, Auburn Metallic, Lakeshore Blue Metallic (late availability) and Meteorite Metallic (late availability).

    The Silverado HD features Chevy's Durabed cargo box as well as the CornerStep rear bumper, BedSteps, available six-position Multi-Flex tailgate, available 120-volt power outlet, and an available power tailgate.

    Appearance Packages, New Wheel Options


    The lineup also retains the popular Z71 Sport Edition, Z71 Chrome Sport Edition and Midnight Special Edition appearance packages, as well as the Alaskan Snow Plow Special Edition.

    New wheel and tire options for the Silverado HD include:

    • 20-inch bright chrome wheels available on LTZ
    • 18-inch polished aluminum dually wheel and all-terrain tires optional on 3500HD LTZ and standard on 3500HD High Country
    • 20-inch off-road tires available on Z71 Sport Edition, Midnight Special Edition, Alaskan Snow Plow Special Edition and Z71 Off-Road package

    Cabin


    LT, LTZ and High Country models introduce a dramatically redesigned passenger space centered around an all-new instrument panel that houses an expansive infotainment screen: a 13.4-inch-diagonal infotainment display.  There is also a new 12.3-inch-diagonal configurable driver information center.

    The interior also has a redesigned wireless phone charger area designed to reduce distractions along with a flow-under console.  Ahead of the driver is an available and configurable head-up display.

    “It’s a more open-feeling and contemporary interior that passengers will find inviting,” said Phil Zak, executive director of Global Chevrolet Design. “It’s an environment that intentionally puts more at the driver’s fingertips, for a greater feeling of confidence and connection with the vehicle.”

     Additional interior updates and upgrades include:

    • Displays and graphics inspired by the recently refreshed Silverado 1500
    • Authentic leather-wrapped surfaces and real wood accents available on certain models
    • New center console on LT, LTZ and High Country models with an available wireless charger
    • More space for side-by-side cupholders in the console and an available 10 total cupholders.
    • New audio control knobs along with similar buttons recently introduced in the Silverado 1500 that allow some popular features to be accessed with a single push
    • Climate vents and controls for the second-row 
    • Enhanced hidden storage, including in the console, upper and lower glove boxes and a sunglasses holder behind the infotainment screen

    New Trailering Tech


    The 2024 Silverado HD's suite of customer-focused trailering technologies is designed to improve the experience with optimal visibility, easier hitching and greater driving comfort when towing a trailer.  Enhancements and improvements for 2024 include:

    • Adaptive Cruise Control with Trailer is an all-new technology for Silverado HD. It allows the Silverado HD’s available Adaptive Cruise Control to account for additional drag and increased braking distances when towing a trailer.
    • Enhanced Transparent Trailer expands the current Transparent Trailer technology by allowing it to work with fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailers
    • Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert extends the blind zone area of interest to help enhance safety and situational awareness when trailering
    • GCW Alert warns the driver if the vehicle and trailer weight exceed the vehicle’s Gross Combined Weight Rating

    The pickup also has an available 14-camera view with HD Surround Vision and Bed View, an in-vehicle Trailering App.  Every Silverado HD includes a vehicle-specific Trailering Information Label, which lists its unique trailering metrics including the trailering ratings to the max tongue weight, max payload and more.

    Additionally, the max tow package is now available across all Silverado 2500 trims, bolstering the maximum towing capability for the 2500HD series equipped with the 6.6L turbo-diesel V-8 engine to 22,500 pounds.

    Google Built-In, Plus Safety Updates


    The 2024 Silverado HD is updated with more intuitive infotainment features and driver assist tech. This includes Google built-in compatibility and Google Assistant.  When it comes to advanced driver assist tech, Adaptive Cruise Control is a newly available feature.

    Standard active safety and driver assistance features include:

    • Front Pedestrian Braking
    • Forward Collision Alert
    • Automatic Emergency Braking
    • Lane Departure Warning
    • Following Distance Indicator
