Most shoppers in Weyburn, Estevan, Carlyle, Radville, or Regina will expect immense capability from an all-new 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD, and this exciting new model delivers that and much more. The 2024 Silverado HD is available in 2500 and 3500 versions with the attractive new exterior styling, reconfigured interior space, more advanced technology features, upgraded powertrains, and even a new Silverado HD ZR2 trim level.
What a new truck is capable of towing and hauling will always be what potential owners are likely to want to know first, and the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD certainly doesn’t disappoint in these crucial areas. The maximum available towing capacity is a mighty 16,329 kg (36,000 pounds), and with the correct configuration, the new Silverado HD can handle a maximum payload of up to 3,306 kg (7,290 pounds).
Of course, how the Silverado HD deals with day-to-day duties is just as crucial as its maximum capacities. The 2024 Silverado HD has a raft of features designed to make life easier, such as advanced trailering technology. The Silverado HD also features the hardest-working truck bed in the business that combines high-strength roll-formed steel, more cargo volume than any truck in its class, and 12 standard tie-downs rated at 226 kg (500 pounds) per corner.
The refreshed 2024 Silverado HD sticks with the traditional blueprint of two engine options. The standard engine is a 6.6-litre gas V-8 L8T that develops 401 horsepower and 464 lb.-ft. of torque, which sends its power to the rear or all four wheels through a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission. With the standard gas powerplant onboard, the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD can tow up to 8,686 kg (19,150 pounds).
But if you want to push your new Silverado HD to its limits, that requires upgrading to the optional 6.6-litre V-8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine. The V-8 turbodiesel gets a boost this year and now delivers 470 horsepower and 975 lb.-ft. of torque. Once again, the power gets to the wheels through a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission. The Duramax engine is how you get to that immense 16,329 kg (36,000-pound) maximum trailering capacity.
It takes more than immense towing and hauling capability to impress discerning truck shoppers today, and the 2024 Silverado HD excels in every vital area. Every version has impressive standard advanced safety and driver assistance features that instill confidence every time you get in your truck. The standard safety features include Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, and Lane Departure Warning.
A massive 340mm (13.4-inch) touchscreen is available for controlling many of the Silverado HD’s onboard systems. And the Silverado HD also offers up to 14 camera views that can make hitching up, backing up, or general maneuvering of the Silverado a piece of cake. Transparent Trailer View is now available for the 2024 Silverado HD for both conventional and fifth-wheel/gooseneck applications. Adaptive Cruise Control is also available to work with the truck’s other trailering-assistance technology to help make towing easier than you ever believed it could be.
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD doesn’t look to reinvent the wheel, but it does take heavy-duty pickup capability, versatility, and flexibility to new levels of excellence.
