Introduced for the 2019 model year as the successor to the long-standing Chevy Kodiak, the Chevy Silverado Medium Duty (MD) lineup is designed to handle the most demanding truck-related tasks. Now, the 2024 Chevy Silverado MD is receiving a new mirror feature.
For the 2024 model year, the Silverado 4500 MD, 5500 MD and 6500 MD trucks are adding the Rear Camera Mirror (RPO code DRZ) to the options list. Available on all trim levels and configurations – which includes Regular Cab or Crew Cab, and 1WT or 1LT – the new feature costs an additional $535.
For comparison’s sake, the Rear Camera Mirror is only offered as an option on ZR2, LTZ and High Country trim levels of the 2024 Silverado 1500, but optional on all trim levels of the 2024 Silverado HD (2500 HD, 3500 HD).

Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Silverado MD is equipped as standard with the 6.6L V8 L5D turbodiesel Duramax engine, which is rated at a maximum of 350 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque. Eagle-eyed readers may note the reduced output figures as compared to the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD and its 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax, which is rated at 470 horsepower and 975 pound-feet of torque. The answer to this discrepancy is simple, as the L5D engine is tuned for increased longevity and reliability in the Silverado MD.
An Allison 6-speed automatic transmission serves to direct output to the ground, while both 2WD and 4WD configurations are available.
As for structure, the Chevy Silverado MD rides on a platform jointly developed by Navistar and GM. Vehicle assembly takes place at the Navistar plant located in Springfield, Ohio.
