2024 Chevy Silverado HD LT In Red Hot: First Photos23
The 2024 Chevy Silverado HD got its big debut last September, revealing a full model refresh that includes revised exterior styling, an overhauled cabin, new tech, a powertrain upgrade, and the new Silverado HD ZR2. Now, we’re taking a look at the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD LT in Red Hot paint courtesy of the following GM Authority photos.
This is the first time we’ve seen the refreshed 2024 Chevy Silverado HD in the mid-range LT trim level. For those who may be unaware, the trim level lineup includes WT (Work Truck), Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country, as well as the new-for-2024 ZR2 off-roader.
This particular model presents the 2500 HD Crew Cab / Standard Bed body configuration. The body panels are covered in Red Hot paint, which is tagged with paint code G7C. The latest 2024 model-year refresh deletes five exterior paint options previously available for the 2023 model year, including (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Cherry Red Tintcoat (GSK)
- Greenstone Metallic (GHR)
- Mosaic Black Metallic (GB8)
- Northsky Blue Metallic (GA0)
- Silver Ice Metallic (GAN)
The five deleted paint colors have been replaced by six new hues:
- Auburn Metallic (G48)
- Dark Ash Metallic (G6M)
- Lakeshore Blue Metallic (GXP)
- Radiant Red Tintcoat (GNT)
- Slate Gray Metallic (GNO)
- Sterling Gray Metallic (GXD)
This particular 2024 Chevy Silverado HD LT is also notable for its tiny wheels.
In the corners, we spot a set of 17-inch machined aluminum wheels (RPO code PYQ), which are wrapped in LT245/75R17E all-season tires (RPO code QHQ). Under the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD, these rollers look positively tiny. To note, the 17-inch machined aluminum wheels are also optional on WT trims, and are offered as a replacement for the 17-inch Silver painted steel wheels (RPO code PYN) equipped as standard by WT trims.
As for the powertrain, the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD is equipped as standard with the 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine, while the 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine is offered as optional, with the latter uprated to 470 horsepower and 975 pound-feet of torque with the latest refresh. A more capable variant of the GM T1 platform provides the underpinnings, while production takes place at the GM Flint Assembly plant in Michigan and the GM Oshawa plant in Canada.

The refreshed LT looks very good! I am interested in ordering one in a single cab, long bed configuration: not exactly the majority of the demographic buying these. My question is, will the single cab LTs actually get the new interior, or will it be the same as the WT and Custom trims, even though GM has stated that it will be standard on LT and up (just like how the new headlamps in the early press of this truck being standard on LT and up, but LT trucks will require a package similar to how the current ones can get the signature headlamps)? Not that the older interior was bad, I liked the simplicity of it, but it would be nice to have it in the new truck. Guess I won’t know until they finally get the build and price up.
The order guides are available online. Search for GM fleet order guide. From there it looks like all LT models get the larger screen.
That’s an LT? Doesn’t look like an LT. Looks like a WT.
It is the lowest LT model. Doesn’t have fancy wheels, color, no packages. Check out GM Jeff YouTube who walks around an higher valued LT 2024 2500 HD.
Looks like it lacks the All star or Texas edition options
Looks like it lacks any style or character to me. Last GM HD that looked any good was in 2002!
The correct wheel & tire package for the fender opening makes all the difference in the world. I liked the 02 model as well but you have to admit the factory LT245/75/16 tires were a joke back then. There wasn’t even an option for larger tires. An 8-year old child would walk up and ask why are the tires are so small lol
I bought a 2005 new and immediately swapped out the stock wheels for 17″ H2 and 285’s . Huge difference.
It’s a test wagon. LT’s don’t normally have steelies. GM keeps doing this thing where their validation vehicles are optioned with RPO codes that nobody would normally order. I don’t think the chrome front end goes well with that red either, but it would with a slate gray or emerald. That red needs a blacked out front end, and alloy wheels. But hey, it serves it purpose
Is GM going to humor us and let us build one on their website?
Nice refresh. Too bad every imaginable configuration is constrained so nothjing any customer wants is being built.
As long as you want a crew cab standard bed everything is good.
My dealer has 35 sold orders for the new HD trucks and the last two weeks have not been able to place any of them in to productions due to all the constraints.. And GM is still not preferencing sold orders so they can puff up their retail sales #’s and chase short term market share. Playing the short game as usual..
20” wheels and tires should be standard. 17’s just kill the visual.
Looks good but needs bigger wheels.
I have a 2500 HD with 19’s it looks way better, even my X5 has 19’s. I know it has been engineered to cover all safety standards but maybe on the minimal side. I think it has more to do with meeting overall fuel consumption numbers?
It makes me think of a over priced dinner with that small portion of food on a large plate. Glad my C8 has 20’s;
Well yeah, any truck jacked up that high is going to look silly on 17 inch wheels. Compared to the crew cab pickups of the 80s and 90s, it’s about half a foot taller and a foot or two longer. Oh, and back then 15 inch wheels were standard.
I hope someone at GM is reading these messages. Please do not put 17 inch wheels on this truck. You are killing all the work GM put into building this truck!!
Interesting so the LT still has the original headlight/turn signal/grill arrangement. I’m glad because I personally think the LTZ headlights look weird with that empty space under the headlights.
Those are obviously the standard steel wheels not aluminum.
Nice to see GM providing more colors than white and 5 shades of black.
GM has always offered more colors. Dealers order what sells the fastest. Unfortunately, black, white, and gray cover well over 50% of the market. When dealers could stock all they wanted, they could be more lenient with colors. In this market of limited inventory, dealers go for the quickest turning colors. If something sits too long, they get punished with their allocation.
Wild that the Chevy HD went from being one of the most polarizing trucks on the road to being one of the better looking ones. I dig this VERY much… and the new Colorado. Kudos to whoever did that.
Interesting as I thought they said all models from LT to high country would have LED headlights that are animated.
well now have go with ltz i want the new Head lights lt should have new headlights
