The 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 stands as the sixth model year of the Bow Tie brand’s fourth-generation full-size pickup truck. GM Authority previously reported that two colors were no longer available for the 2023 Silverado 1500, and now, those same colors will not reappear for the 2024 model year.
Northsky Blue Metallic (color code GA0) and Sand Dune Metallic (GTL) will not be available for the 2024 Silverado 1500. Northsky Blue was available since the current-generation Silverado launched for the 2019 model year, while Sand Dune was introduced for the refreshed 2022 model year.
It’s worth noting that both colors will be indirectly replaced by the Lakeshore Blue Metallic (GXP) and Slate Grey Metallic (GNO) hues for the 2024 model year.
