GM 2024 Full-Size SUVs To Offer 24-Inch Alloy Wheels13
Ever-growing wheel size appears to be a recurring theme in the automotive industry. In fact, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will be the first modern production vehicle, both within GM and beyond it, to be equipped with 24-inch rollers from the factory. Now, GM Authority has learned that this monstrous wheel size will carry over into General Motors’ full-size SUV offerings.
The General will offer a 24-inch alloy wheel option on its refreshed 2024 full-size SUV lineup, which includes the following models:
While a 24-inch wheel may have been considered exotic a few years ago, GM design chief Michael Simcoe was quoted as saying back in 2019 that 24-inch and 26-inch wheel sizes were just over the horizon. Now, the question becomes, when will GM begin offering 26-inch rollers?
As for the refreshed SUVs themselves, the Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon and Escalade will all receive styling and technology upgrades for the 2024 model year. More specifically, the front and rear fascias will be revised, and the infotainment system will be updated.
In regard to powertrain specifications, the current engine options are expected to carry over into the mid-cycle refresh. For the 2024 Tahoe, 2024 Suburban and 2024 Yukon, this includes the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, rated at 277 horsepower at and 460 pound-feet of torque. However, it’s also possible that the 5.3L could be replaced or joined by GM’s turbo 2.7L L3B I-4 motor, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque in its highest output. As for the 2024 Escalade, the luxury SUV only features the 6.2L L87 and the 3.0L LM2.
All powerplant choices are mated to the GM 10-speed automatic transmission, while GM’s full-size SUVs will continue to ride on the GM T1 platform. The refreshed 2024 models are expected to begin production in November 2023 at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.

They look stupid and wait till they hit their first pothole and lose the tire and wheel! Totally a waste of money!!!
Twenny-foe’s. Donk that Tahoe! Agree with Mr C. That’s stupid.
Rubber band tires are for “race cars” and not for public roads, or daily drivers. The added cost and weight of those monster wheels is just a case of “mine’s bigger than yours” mentality. Unless they fill the gap with huge brakes, it looks even more ridiculous.
At least the “22 wheels are standard for ’24 model year. I rather have the 22s instead the 24s unless there are plans for big changes to the suspension to make the ride quality more compliant and supple with the 24s like the current line-up with the “22 wheel size without noticing. But we’ll see.
I agree with the first 3 comments above. This obsession with huge wheels (and huge screens) is just stupid. I work at a Volvo and Mazda store. Volvo isn’t quite at the 22″ and above crazy yet, but they have mostly 19″, 20″ and 21″ now. Not only do those rims reduce ride quality a lot, but it’s a daily thing to see people coming in here with massive damage to the rims and blown tires from hitting bumps and potholes. No thank you. IMO, anything over 18″ for a rim is too much and screams hey, look at me. Look at me!
You don’t know your product because the XC90 R-Design came with OEM 22s years ago
If the owners live in areas where they need to have chains in the winter , forget about it! Not enough room to put them on. I have a 21 gmc 2500hd with 20 inch wheels. I couldn’t believe that there wasn’t enough room to install chains with out the chains hitting the shocks. I’ve got an $80,000 truck that’s useless in the winter where I live.
I feel like they could definitely pull them off. they only look stupid when people put the goofy ass 1.5 inch side wall tires on them. plus the full sizers are on road vehicles anyways. you’d have to options if you don’t want 24’s:
literally just don’t option them on
buy a z71 or at4.
camaro kyle: It’s just not that easy. For one, many of the brands no longer offer anything less than 19″ on the most popular models. When I buy a car, I search out one that has 18″ or less and it’s not easy to find now days. Second, even if those models/brands do offer smaller wheel options, many times the dealers stock the larger wheels because that’s what a lot of buyers seem to want. This is based on looks which brings me to a point I’ve made several times. Why do the manufacturers feel the need to offer crap looking smaller rims and only offer the nicer looking rims in the over-sized? The answer is money! They don’t want to produce nice looking smaller (16 to 18″ rims) because it would kill the upselling on the larger rim packages. On top of that, the dealers make a ton of money on wheel and tire packages for damaged rims. It’s all about the money.
Lastly, there are many times where the manufacturers only offer certain options and you must take the larger rims to get those items. In other words, it’s forced upon you. Perfect example? If you wish to get the Malibu Premier (2022) or 2LT (2023) with the certain features you can only get in that trim, you end up taking the larger rims or nothing. So it’s not just easy like you make it sound.
Camaro Kyle, If you put larger sidewall tires on as you suggest, if anybody even makes that type of tire in the huge rim sizes , the ecm must be reprogrammed for the larger diameter tires. Might as well jack it up and put knobby off road tires on it at that point, as the diameter of the larger sidewall tires will rub the wheel wells, and fenders, so why not stay with a reasonable size wheel to start with? Oh yeah, add in the extra leverage/weight the huge, heavy tires will have against the stock brakes.
Cool, they reduce ride quality, reduce fuel economy, bend super easy on a pothole (I made two 18″ Impala wheels look like pac-man) and make the tires ridiculously expensive to replace. I can’t wait for the ridiculous huge wheel obsession to pass.
WHY? How stupid is that?
This oversized wheel thing needs to end…………My first 300HP car…. a 65′ GTO had 14″ like nearly everything in the 60’s and 70’s…………….Somebody please tell Me WHY We must have these oversized wheels on EVERYTHING……….Paul
