Back in May 2023, GM Authority reported that the fastest turning trim levels of the refreshed 2024 Chevy Silverado HD were the Custom and LT. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the trims that spent the least amount of time on dealership lots over the course of June 2023.
As of the time of this writing, Custom and High Country units are the fastest-turning trims for the 2024 Silverado HD. It’s worth noting that the new HD ZR2 and HD ZR2 Bison trim levels haven’t been included in the sales mix yet, as the off-road-focused models don’t enter production until August 2023.
When considering the positioning of these two trim levels within the 2024 Silverado HD’s lineup, this may come as no surprise. Sitting in the middle of the hierarchy, the Custom trim features a healthy combination of features from across the model range. Meanwhile, the range-topping High Country trim level is highlighted by the availability of high-tech features and goodies, making it a desirable model.
As previously mentioned, the HD ZR2 isn’t currently available yet. Marketed as the ultimate all-terrain Silverado HD, the HD ZR2 features a bevy of off-road goodies, including unique front grille, flow-tie emblem, unique wheel opening molding with integrated mudguards, ZR2 badging in the grille bar, a 1.5-inch suspension lift, Multimatic DSSV dampers, specific front upper and lower control arms and specific steering knuckles, a larger steel transfer case skid plate, a front aluminum skid plate, a rear locker, and 18-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD is equipped with the naturally aspirated 6.6L V8 L8T gasoline engine as standard fare, rated at 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque, across the entire trim lineup. The optional 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine, which has been uprated to 470 horsepower and 975 pound-feet of torque for the mid-cycle refresh, is also available.
In regard to transmission options, both engines feature the Allison-branded 10-speed automatic as standard.
Under the body panels, the Silverado HD rides on a more-capable variant of the GM T1 platform, which it shares with its corporate platform-mate, the 2024 GMC Sierra HD. Production kicked off in March 2023 at the GM Flint plant in Michigan, and few weeks later at the GM Oshawa plant in Canada.
