2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD Commands the Road with More Power, Enhanced Interior and Smarter Technology

0 2,879

Chevrolet brings everything heavy-duty truck lovers want and need with the 2024 Silverado HD — with no compromises in capability and comfort, to customers in the Middle East. The 2024 Silverado HD arrives with powertrain upgrades, a more commanding presence paired with an overhauled interior, enhancements to its revolutionary trailering technology, and infotainment and active safety technology2 upgrades.

The lineup includes 2500HD and 3500HD models in Regular Cab, Double Cab and Crew Cab configurations. Dual-rear-wheel models are available on 3500HD, and they support the lineup’s highest trailering capacity: 16,329 kg3. The 2024 Silverado HD is available in Work Truck, LT and LTZ.

Allison 10-Speed Transmission

For the first time, the proven Allison 10-speed automatic transmission is now standard equipment for the Silverado HD’s powertrain: the 6.6L V-8 gas engine. It replaces the previous six-speed automatic, offering smaller “steps” between the gears, enabling the machine to hold closer to its peak power for extended periods.

The improvements translate to a more confident feeling of on-demand power, regardless of whether the truck is towing a trailer. Regarding tow, the 10-speed configuration helps channel every Nm of torque to the tires in every gear. In turn, the 2024 Silverado HD’s Gross Combined Weight Rating with the 6.6L gas engine increases to 11,793 kg7, up from 10,886 kg.

Additionally, the Allison transmission’s 10-speed design optimizes grade braking with the gas engine, with the closer gear ratios enabling greater engine-braking control. That, in addition to precise tuning for smooth shifts and quicker downshifts, complements the enhanced feeling of on-demand power, greater control, precision and refinement.

Commanding Presence

The 2024 Silverado HD has a commanding presence, driven by a freshened front-end appearance that features a new fascia, new headlights, new grille and more. The truck’s chiselled appearance combines with a timeless design that not only looks but is, prepared for anything.

C-shaped LED graphic lamps to frame the new fascia, inspired by the signature design of the Silverado 1500, while bold, new headlights on the LTZ trim feature dual-projector technology. The primary and high beams of these new lights are now split into dual functions, and as owners approach or depart their 2024 Silverado HD, an animated lighting sequence welcomes or bids them farewell from the truck.

Additional exterior updates include standard tow hooks and “CHEVROLET” lettering featured on the hood scoop. Six new exterior colours have also been added: Sterling Gray, Dark Ash, Radiant Red, Auburn Metallic, Lakeshore Blue Metallic (late availability) and Meteorite Metallic (late availability).

Atop numerous updates, Silverado HD’s design continues to boast the breakthrough features and technologies that contribute to its true truck capability. They include the Durabed cargo box that optimizes every square inch for maximum cargo capability — including up to 83.5 cubic feet with the long box — and the CornerStep rear bumper, BedSteps, available six-position Multi-Flex tailgate, available 220-volt power outlet, available power tailgate and more.

Refined Interior

In addition to the exterior styling updates, all models receive a new interior designed for greater work-ready functionality and next-level technology integration.

LT and LTZ models introduce a dramatically redesigned passenger space centred around an all-new instrument panel that houses an expansive infotainment screen: a 13.4-inch-diagonal infotainment1 display.

A 12.3-inch-diagonal configurable driver information centre complements the new infotainment display. The infotainment screen and other controls are also canted toward the driver, giving the driver more of a “command centre” perspective. This ethos pulls directly from the simple and iconic looks of the C/K Series trucks set in the 1970s and 1980s.

This more imaginative command centre also includes a redesigned wireless phone charger4 area to reduce distractions and a flow-under console. The latter design provides the spaciousness of a bench seat while retaining the functionality of a centre console. Ahead of the driver is an available and configurable head-up display.

“It’s a more open-feeling and contemporary interior that passengers will find inviting,” said Phil Zak, executive director of Global Chevrolet Design. “It’s an environment that intentionally puts more at the driver’s fingertips, for a greater feeling of confidence and connection with the vehicle.”

Additional Interior Updates and Upgrades Include:
  • New screen displays and graphics inspired by the recently refreshed Silverado 1500.
  • Authentic leather-wrapped surfaces and genuine wood accents are available on specific models.
  • The new centre console incorporates an available wireless charger. Recent new column shifter that enables more space for side-by-side cupholders in the console: There are ten total cupholders available, depending on the model and configuration.
  • New audio control knobs that help strike an ideal balance between physical and digital controls, along with similar buttons recently introduced in the refreshed Silverado 1500 that allow some popular features to be accessed with a single push.
  • Climate vents and controls for second-row passengers.
  • Enhanced hidden storage, including in the console, upper and lower gloveboxes and even a sunglasses holder behind the infotainment screen.
Enhanced Infotainment

The Silverado HD is designed to make the drive more enjoyable with new, more intuitive infotainment1 technologies and an expanded roster of driver awareness technologies.

On the infotainment side, Google’s built-in8 compatibility enables customers to connect virtually every aspect of their daily lives through Google Assistant, which is available through the infotainment system touchscreen or voice command. With the Google Assistant, it’s easy to send texts, play music, receive directions with Google Maps, adjust vehicle settings and even control smart home devices, all hands-free.

Regarding safety and driver assistance technologies2, Adaptive Cruise Control is a newly available feature. It complements and bolsters the suite of standard active safety and driver assistance features that includes:

  • Front Pedestrian Detection and Braking
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Following Distance Indicator.
 Coming in Q1 2023

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD will make its public debut at the State Fair of Texas starting with the press day on Sept. 29, and the truck will be on display throughout the public days. Production begins in the first half of 2023 at General Motors’ Flint Assembly in Michigan and Oshawa Assembly in Canada9.
