2023 Silverado HD Production Start Date Revealed10
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.

As a reminder, the current Chevy Silverado HD is available with two engine options, namely the atmospheric 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, which is rated at 401 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 464 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm, and the 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine, which is rated at 445 horsepower at 2,800 rpm and 910 pound-feet of torque at 1,600 rpm. Under the body panels, the Silverado HD rides on a more capable version of the GM T1 platform.

The 6.6 gas seems to be a good engine, it just needs that 10 speed behind it.
I love my Chevy 6.6 gas 2020 3500 HD WT so far. I sure would like to feel the difference with a 10 speed in it. On occasion, my 6 speed downshifts hard going into a hill not towing anything. It makes sure it isn’t going up a hill here in 2nd gear at low mph. Harsh but if I was towing something behind it at the time, I don’t think it would be as bad. Seems like a easier tranny to rebuild when watching u tube videos cause of the clutch packs. 8K miles on so far. Towed my enclosed 8.5 x 20 loaded trailer 500 miles with no problems . Have not pulled our 10K 5th wheel on vacation yet cause of china virus confusion. So I will learn more later.
You will learn with a gas engine that it will get poor gas mileage. If your going to tow a 5th wheel, diesel is by far the better engine. But if your not going to tow on any hills or high elevation then the gas will suffice. Yes the diesel cost more but gets better gas mileage at any speed.
Here’s a little info about diesels I bet you didn’t know. Unlike gas engines that use more gas the faster you go. Diesel gets the same gas mileage at 60 that it does at 80.
Also when gas engines overheat you have to stop and let them cool off. But diesel engines, you just run it up just below redline and it will cool it down. It hard on gas engines to sit idling, While diesels will run all day idling. (in traffic)
Basically if your the kind of vehicle owner that’s just going to trade in your truck every 3 years or so, buy gas. But if your the kind of owner that keeps a vehicle for many years, buy diesel.

What ARE the “handful of small changes”?
THE SMALL CHANGES ARE MORE CHEAP UN-FINISHED BLACK PLASTIC TRIM PIECES ALL OVER THE EXTERIOR , THAT WAY IN 2 – 3 YEARS YOUR 90K TRUCK LOOKS LIKE ITS 7 YEARS OLD WHEN IT ALL FADES TO A WHITE HUE , MORE DARK PAINT COLORS INCLUDING 6 DIFFERENT COLORS OF BLACK PAINT, AND 4 KINDS OF BLACK INTERIOR, AND THE NEW CAR LIKE DASH THE BEAN COUNTERS WANTED , INCLUDING THE UNDER POWERED DURAMAX, AND THE FAKE BRANDED ALLISON TRANSMISSION, AND BIG DUMB LOOKING DOOR MOUNTED MIRRORS.
