The forthcoming 2024 Chevy Silverado HD has been sighted tested for the first time this year. In case you missed it, the present model was redesigned two years ago, and sales have increased since then. The new version appears to be more daring, as demonstrated by the earliest spy shots, and it appears to have refreshments at the front and rear.
To begin, spy photographs show Silverado HD prototypes being carried by trailers. Naturally, Chevy appears to be putting the new truck’s towing skills to the test. While we wait for further official information, here’s everything you need to know about this heavy-duty truck.
Chevy Silverado HD Spy Shots
The first spy shots of the upcoming 2024 Chevy Silverado HD have arrived, and we must say, the new truck looks better. The Silverado HD was caught testing with front and rear fascia covers on. The new model is expected to have revised headlights and taillights.
In addition, the front grille seems to be bigger, and a horizontal bar appears to be significantly wider. There are a few notable updates in the back, but we are waiting for the heavy camouflage to come off, so we can have a better look.
The facelifted 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD will once again provide a very modern interior design. This heavy-duty truck has a plethora of interior options and novelties. The crew cab is the most popular choice due to its longer wheelbase and increased passenger space. Furthermore, the Silverado’s cabin includes a long list of standard equipment. It can’t yet compete with RAM HD versions, but it’s almost at the same level.
From now on, the Silverado HD comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen and an upgraded infotainment system. This model will, like before, include different phone connections, navigation, Bluetooth, and Bose audio system. Silverado HD also includes a Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless charging as options. We anticipate minor interior changes and extra safety features.
The new 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD will have improved performance. According to the most current reports, the diesel powertrain will receive a minor increase. This 6.6-liter engine currently produces 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. That is still insufficient, as rivals Ram and Ford deliver greater torque. Chevy will now provide that boost, allowing the diesel engine to produce 500 horsepower and over 1,000 lb-ft of torque.
It is also the first diesel engine in the heavy-duty market to achieve 500 horsepower. The Allison 10-speed automatic transmission will stay, per source. Nonetheless, the Silverado HD should have a larger towing capacity than the current 36,000 pounds. As for the standard gasoline engine, nothing will change. It is the same 6.6-liter V8 engine with 401 hp and a torque of 465 lb-ft of torque. This version will use a 6-speed automatic transmission and it will be capable to tow almost 18,000 pounds.
2024 Chevy Silverado HD Launch Date and Cost
The price of the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD should start at $40,000, or slightly above that. If you want more luxury, the range-topping High Country trim level will cost almost $70k. From what we know, the Silverado HD lineup of trucks will go on sale this fall.
