2024 Chevy Silverado HD Gets Standard IntelliBeam Headlamps6
With production slated to begin next month, the arrival of the refreshed 2024 Chevy Silverado HD lineup is just around the corner. However, we’re still learning new details about the revised heavy-duty pickup, and now, GM Authority has learned that the Silverado HD lineup will receive IntelliBeam headlamps as standard across the model range.
The IntelliBeam headlamps with automatic high beam on/off function (RPO code TQ5) will be equipped as standard across the entire Silverado HD lineup – WT, Custom, LT, LTZ and High County – including all trims on both the 2500 HD and 3500 HD pickups.
This is notable because the IntelliBeam headlamps weren’t offered at all on most trim levels of the 2023 Chevy Silverado HD lineup. In fact, the safety feature was only available with the Safety Package II (RPO code PDJ), which itself was only offered on LTZ and High Country trim levels.
As a reminder, the mid-cycle refresh of the Silverado HD will feature revisions to the exterior, interior and drivetrain. Starting with the exterior, the 2024 Silverado HD debuts a new front fascia, which features new headlights, grille, and C-shaped LED signature lighting. Tow hooks can be found throughout the model range, while prospective buyers can choose between six new exterior colors.
Moving to the interior, all LT and above trims feature an overhauled cockpit, which is highlighted by a new 13.4-inch diagonal infotainment touchscreen and 12.3-inch diagonal configurable driver information center. In addition, the refreshed HD lineup receives a bevy of enhanced trailering features, including Adaptive Cruise Control with Trailer, Enhanced Transparent Trailer, Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert, and GCW Alert.
In the powertrain department, the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD is equipped as standard with the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, rated at 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque, while the 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine is optional. The Duramax has been uprated for the mid-cycle refresh to produce 470 horsepower and 975 pound-feet of torque.
No matter engine choice, every 2024 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.

General Motors needs to address the deforsters in the new pickups as well. The front windsheild defroster to be more specific.
What’s wrong with it? They are very important here in the Midwest!
They don’t have a windshield temperature sensor anymore so automatic climate control sucks in warm and humid situations (80 F outside after a rain). Using max defog blows cold air onto the windshield which causes it to fog up. You have to put it in manual mode, and because you don’t have a direct hot-cold knob, it’s a pain to get it right.
So production this month but we still can’t build it online and dealers do not have pricing?
This is big news? My 68 Cadillac had a sensor behind the grill that would dim the high beams when it picked up approaching headlights. Now they have a fancy name…… sheesh
How about they equip them with adaptive zones so they don’t blind every non-truck driver because the lamp is 5 ft off the ground?
