The 2024 model is available in 10 exciting exterior paint colors, of which six are new. Besides the changes to the paint palette, the refreshed truck has a new exterior, a revamped interior, a new trim level, and an upgraded powertrain. 

Let’s look at some of these new features and updates. 

Stylish Exterior

The 2024 Silverado HD has a more aggressive look, thanks to new headlights and a redesigned large grille and bumper. Chevrolet didn’t just refresh the front end — it also redesigned the rear end with a new pair of taillights. There are also new 18-, 20-, and 22-inch wheel and tire options that complement this full-size truck’s undeniable presence and confidence. 

Comfortable and Premium Interior

The more upscale interior includes several new features. The seats are available in premium leather upholstery, and the dashboard is now made of soft-touch materials to give it a more luxurious feel. Chevrolet has redesigned the center console with a high-tech driver-oriented instrument panel with enhanced functionality. With a large 13.4-inch infotainment touch screen, you’ll have connectivity and entertainment at your fingertips. An equally impressive 12.3-inch driver information center lets you keep an eye on essential vehicle data as you cruise around Lewisville and beyond. 

Performance and Engines

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD is available with the following two engine options:

  • A 6.6L V-8 gasoline engine producing 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque.
  • A 6.6L Duramax turbo-diesel V-8 engine producing 470 hp and 975 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission and offer decent fuel economy. The V-8 gasoline engine gets around 12 mpg in the city and 16 mpg on the highway, while the Duramax diesel engine averages around 17 mpg in the city and an impressive 23 mpg on the highway. 

All-New 10-Speed Automatic Transmission

The Chevrolet 2024 Silverado HD now has a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission. This new addition helps improve fuel economy and performance compared to previous models. The existing Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel V-8 engine has additional torque and horsepower to increase the truck’s performance further. 

Driver Assistance Features

The 2024 Silverado HD comes with a whole new suite of driver assistance features to make towing easier. It offers up to 14 camera views to give you more visibility when backing up, hitching, or maneuvering on narrow roads. You can also access other smart features, such as adaptive cruise control with trailering, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, lane departure warning, automated emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist. These features help you avoid accidents and make driving an easy pleasure.

Increased Towing and Payload Capacity

Whether you want the Chevrolet Silverado HD for personal use or work, the increased towing and payload capacity is sure to impress you. The 2500 HD model can tow up to 22,500 pounds, and the 3500 HD model can take up to 36,000 pounds. The increased payload capacity for both models ensures you can handle whatever you need to. 

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

  • All new Chevrolet Silverado HDs get one complimentary scheduled maintenance visit at your preferred dealership.
  • The limited warranty covers 36,000 miles or three years.
