Chevrolet has revealed the updated Silverado HD lineup that’ll go on sale in Q1 2023 as a 2024 model. But before that, the pickup truck will make its public debut at the State Fair of Texas starting with the press day on September 29, 2022. The 2024 Silverado HD will be available in Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country trims, followed by the first-ever ZR2 trim at a later date. The lineup includes 2500HD and 3500HD models in Regular Cab, Double Cab and Crew Cab configurations. Dual-rear-wheel models will be available on 3500HD and they boast the lineup’s highest trailering capacity of up to 36,000 lbs (16,329 kg).
The refreshed lineup boasts a new front fascia with new dual-projector headlights, C-shaped LED running lights and a new grille. The headlights perform an animated lighting sequence in order to welcome or bid farewell to the owner. A Midnight Edition package (scroll down for a picture) will be available on the range-topping Silverado HD High Country that gets you a black grille, black hood vent, black Bowtie, black badges, black door handles, black mirror caps, black body side molding, black assist steps, and of course, black 20-inch wheels. A 22-inch wheel option will also be available.
Six new exterior colors have been added to the palette: Sterling Gray, Dark Ash, Radiant Red, Auburn Metallic, Lakeshore Blue Metallic (late availability) and Meteorite Metallic (late availability).
Key features on the inside depending on the model and configuration include a 12.3-inch driver display; a 13.4-inch infotainment display; Google built-in; wireless smartphone charging; a total of 10 total cupholders; power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats with memory and haptic sensors; Bose 7-speaker audio system, climate vents and controls for second-row passengers, and more. The High Country trim boasts authentic open-pore wood inserts.
There are a couple of trailering-focused options such as HD Surround Vision and Bed View. Other improved trailering technologies include Adaptive Cruise Control with Trailer—which instructs the optional Adaptive Cruise Control to account for additional drag and increased braking distances when towing a trailer; Enhanced Transparent Trailer—which 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, and GCW Alert—warns the driver if the vehicle and trailer weight exceed the vehicle’s Gross Combined Weight Rating.
Standard ADAS include Front Pedestrian Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, and Following Distance Indicator.
Moving on to the juicy bits of the story then, the powertrain options include a 6.6L V8 flex-fuel engine that can take either gasoline or an E85 blend, producing 299 kW (406.5 metric hp) and 629 Nm (464 lb-ft) with gasoline. For those who prefer diesel, Chevy will offer you a Duramax 6.6L V8 turbo, producing 350 kW (476 metric hp) and 1322 Nm (975 lb-ft). Both engines are coupled with an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission. Both 2500HD and 3500HD models offer rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive options.
