The 2023 Chevy Silverado HD will start rolling off the line on July 18th, 2022, GM Authority has learned. Order books for the 2023 Silverado HD will open as of May 5th, 2022. Production of the Chevy Silverado HD takes place at the GM Flint plant in Flint, Michigan, and, more recently, at the GM Oshawa plant in Canada as well.
Of course, we should caveat this information by acknowledging that the above-stated dates may change in the future, especially when considering the highly fluid nature of the current operating environment.
Similar to the GMC Sierra HD, the refreshed Chevy Silverado HD is set to launch for the 2024 model year, rather than the 2023 model year, as was originally believed to be the case. The delay is the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which pushed back several GM vehicle programs by a year, including the refreshed heavy-duty GM pickup trucks. As such, the 2023 Chevy Silverado HD will introduce just a handful of small changes, whereas the 2024 model year will introduce far more substantial changes.
The current GM heavy-duty pickups are selling well and are in high demand, including the Chevy Silverado HD. Although Silverado HD sales were down 7.5 percent to 139,059 units during the 2021 calendar year, the drop in sales is the result of sub-par availability at the dealer level, rather than demand. However, with the addition of new Chevy Silverado HD production at the GM Oshawa plant in Canada, short-term availability should be bolstered going forward.
