The 2024 Chevy Silverado HD introduces a mid-cycle refresh for the heavy duty pickup that brings a bevy of exterior enhancements, an overhauled cockpit, and upgraded technology. One new feature is called GCW Alert, a system that measures gross combination weight while trailering.
GCW Alert is a new trailering aid that predicts the gross combination mass of the truck and trailer based on axle torque and vehicle acceleration. If gross combination mass is predicted to be close or over the truck’s gross combined weight rating, the driver is alerted through the driver information center. The driver is alerted only once per key cycle.
The driver can turn the feature on and off on their trailer profile in the trailer app. The alert provides the driver with two distinct warnings:
- Yellow – Estimated weight of your trailer and cargo may exceed the vehicle GCW
- Red – Estimated weight of your trailer and cargo exceeds the vehicle GCW
For those who may have missed it, here’s the lowdown on the revised 2024 Silverado HD. On the exterior, pickup receives a new front fascia, which includes new a new grille, headlights and C-shaped LED signature lighting, while tow hooks are standard on all trim levels.
As for the interior, trim levels LT and above receive an entirely overhauled cockpit, which includes an all-new 13.4-inch diagonal infotainment screen and 12.3-inch diagonal configurable driver information center. Work Truck (WT) and Custom trims carry on with the current, 2023 Silverado HD‘s cabin design.
Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD is equipped with the 6.6L L8T V8 gasoline engine as standard, which produces 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine is optional, now churning out 470 horsepower and 975 pound-feet.
Regardless of engine choice, every Chevy Silverado HD runs the Allison-branded 10-speed automatic transmission as standard, which replaces the GM six-speed equipped by gasoline-powered models previously.
Production is expected to kick off in February 2023.
