2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD Hauls in More Power
Chevrolet brings everything heavy-duty truck customers want and need with the 2024 Silverado HD – with no compromises in capability and comfort. The 2024 Silverado HD arrives with powertrain upgrades, a more commanding presence paired with an overhauled interior, enhancements to its available revolutionary trailering technology, and infotainment and active safety technology upgrades.
The lineup includes 2500HD and 3500HD models in Regular Cab, Double Cab and Crew Cab configurations. Dual-rear-wheel models are available on 3500HD. Highest trailering capacity of 16,330 kg is available on specifically equipped 3500HD dual-rear-wheel Silverados.
For the first time, the proven Allison 10-speed automatic transmission is now standard equipment for both the Silverado HD’s powertrains: the standard 6.6-l V8 gas engine and the available Duramax turbo-diesel. It replaces the gas engine’s previous six-speed automatic, offering smaller “steps” between the gears, which enables the 6.6 l gas engine to hold closer to its peak power for longer periods.
The improvements translate to 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.
Additionally, the Allison transmission’s 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.
Silverado engineers continue to further push the renowned Duramax 6.6-l turbo-diesel V8 engine, and with the 2024 Silverado HD, they’ve issued their latest upgrades. Horsepower and torque increase to a GM-estimated 470 hp and 975 lb-ft, with final numbers pending SAE certification. Additional changes and upgrades were designed to produce a more efficient combustion, which enhances overall performance. Further, engineers enhanced low-end torque production by up to 25% for improved performance at low speeds or climbing grades, and particularly when trailering.
Assembly production begins in the first half of 2023 at General Motors’ Flint Assembly in Michigan, and at Oshawa Assembly in Ontario. Pricing and additional details will be released closer to the start of production.
