The refreshed 2024 Chevy Silverado HD was just caught conducting some real-world testing, providing our first look at the heavy duty pickup in prototype form.
This particular model is configured in the Crew Cab / Long Bed body style, and is covered in heavy camouflage. This model also appears to be a mid-tier trim level, given the lack of shiny trim bits that characterize higher trims. Nevertheless, there are still several noteworthy features to point out on this prototype 2024 Chevy Silverado HD, starting with the reworked front fascia, where we spot headlights with LED lighting signatures.
While the headlights seen here are only placeholder units, the configuration points to a new, simpler design than the current model. The clusters have two forward-facing lighting elements placed horizontally, above which sits an LED lighting signature strip.
This 2024 Chevy Silverado HD also has a revised front fascia also boasts a new grille, with broad horizontal slats that seem to offer a simplified and cleaner design than that of the current Silverado HD. The rear end will also be revised with the upcoming refresh.
Although the interior was likewise covered in heavy camo, the refreshed 2024 Chevy Silverado HD will also arrive with a refreshed cabin space.
Further revisions with the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD refresh include powertrain updates, as GM Authority covered previously. The powertrain updates will likely be applied to the atmospheric 6.6L V8 L8T and 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax. The same updates will be applied to the Chevy Silverado HD’s corporate cousin, the GMC Sierra HD, which will also to receive a refresh for the 2024 model year.
Originally expected to receive a refresh for the 2023 model year, the Chevy Silverado HD refresh will now in fact take place for the 2024 model year. The model refresh cycle has been pushed back a model year as a result of several factors, including delays stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and the global microchip shortage. What’s more, the current heavy duty models continue to sell quite well in the market place.
