The 2024 Chevy Silverado HD will introduce a mid-cycle refresh to the heavy-duty pickup line, featuring revised exterior styling, an overhauled cockpit, powertrain enhancements, and more. Now, GM Authority has exclusively learned when production will kick off.
Sources close to the matter told GM Authority that the start of regular production (SORP) of the refreshed 2024 Chevy Silverado HD is currently scheduled for February 2023.
For those unaware, here’s a rundown of the changes on the HD truck. On the exterior, the 2024 Silverado HD receives a new front fascia, which includes new headlights, grille, and C-shaped LED signature lighting. Tow hooks can be found across all trim levels, and customers can choose between six new exterior colors.
Moving inside, all LT and above trims are granted an overhauled cockpit, which includes an all-new 13.4-inch diagonal infotainment screen and 12.3-inch diagonal configurable driver information center. Additionally, the Silverado HD gets enhanced trailering features, such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Trailer, Enhanced Transparent Trailer, Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert, and GCW Alert.
All heavy duty pickups are expected to post massive towing numbers, and the Silverado HD is no exception. When properly equipped, the Silverado HD has a trailering capacity up to 36,000 pounds.
Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD utilizes the 6.6L L8T V8 gasoline engine as standard fare, while the 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine is optional. The Duramax boasts 470 horsepower and 975 pound-feet of torque, up by 25 horsepower and a 65 pound-feet over the pre-refreshed models.
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.
