The online configurator tool for the 2023 Chevy Silverado HD has officially gone live on the American automaker’s website, allowing prospective buyers to select their preferred exterior and interior colors, apply their preferred options and equipment packages and view a complete pricing summary.
The Chevy Silverado HD lineup continues largely unchanged for 2023 over the preceding model year, with GM set to introduce a refreshed version of the full-size heavy-duty truck for the 2024 model year. The online configurator tool, therefore, does not contain any secrets or new equipment that Chevy Silverado HD fans are not already familiar with, however GM has raised the price of the truck by a further $1,000 across the board, as we reported previously. The base price of the truck now sits at $42,295, which applies to the entry-level 2500HD WT trim.
Under the hood, the 2023 Chevy Silverado HD is offered with two engine options, including the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, rated at 401 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 464 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm, as well as the 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine, rated at 445 horsepower at 2,800 rpm and 910 pound-feet of torque at 1,600 rpm. Under the skin is the more-capable version of the GM T1 platform for full-size trucks and SUVs.
According to GM Authority sources, the start of regular production (SORP) for the 2023 Chevy Silverado HD is set to kick off at the GM Oshawa plant on September 12th, 2022. Production of the Silverado HD at the GM Flint plant in Michigan began on July 18th, 2022.
