2024 Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty Makes Trifecta of Upgrades

With the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD adds tech to make work easier and interior comforts to make work more enjoyable.

Chevrolet introduced their 2024 Silverado HD making it known the truck comes ready to work—with a purpose.

Why do consumers buy heavy duty models of trucks? Usually because they having something to tow—usually something big and heavy.

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.

Yep, that truck came ready to work harder than before.

The 2024 Silverado HD derives torque from the proven Allison 10-speed automatic transmission, now standard equipment for both the Silverado HD’s powertrains: the standard 6.6L V-8 gas engine and the available Duramax turbo-diesel.

“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.”

—Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet.

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.

Who doesn’t love more power?

Overall, the horsepower and torque numbers increase to 470 hp and 975 lb-ft of torque. Additional changes and upgrades were designed to produce a more efficient combustion which enhances overall performance.

Engineers designed the new 2024 Silverado HD around the fact that towing would be an integral part of ownership.

The Silverado HD makes trailering easier with established available features, including up to 14 unique camera views such as HD Surround Vision and Bed View and an in-vehicle Trailering App.

Chevy optimized this suite of available camera views to ensure the 2024 Silverado HD provides the right view in any moment. 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.

LT, LTZ and High Country models introduce a dramatically redesigned passenger space centered around an all-new instrument panel which houses the segment’s largest infotainment screen: a 13.4-inch-diagonal infotainment display. A 12.3-inch-diagonal configurable driver information center complements the new infotainment display.

The infotainment screen and other controls are also canted toward the driver, giving the driver more of a “command center” perspective.

This smarter command center also includes a redesigned wireless phone charger area to reduce distractions and a flow-under console. The latter design provides the spaciousness of a bench seat while retaining the functionality of a center console. Ahead of the driver is an available and configurable head-up display.

The truck’s infotainment system comes with Google built-in compatibility enabling customers to connect through Google Assistant, which is available through the infotainment system touchscreen or voice command.

Google Assistant allows drivers to send texts, play music, receive directions with Google Maps, adjust vehicle settings and even control smart home devices all hands free.

The 2024 Silverado HD will come with a bevy of standard safety features including:

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

The new Silverado 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.

The 2024 Silverado HD is available in Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country trims. ZR2 will join the HD trim lineup later in the model year for the first time.
