The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is the very definition of ruggedness. Building on a legacy of dependability, the 2024 Silverado 2500HD elevates every aspect of the heavy-duty truck experience. From its menacing grille to the rumble under the hood, every detail has been fine-tuned to create a machine that’s as reliable as it is revolutionary. This pickup remains a perennial favorite at the Glenwood Chevrolet dealership.
With an update for 2024, the Chevy Silverado 2500HD comes packed with enhancements. The modifications in its styling are complemented by technological upgrades, including an improved “transparent trailer” capability, a larger 13.4-inch infotainment display, and improved adaptive cruise control. On the performance front, the turbodiesel V8 engine now boasts an extra 25 horsepower and 65 lb-ft of torque, pushing its towing capacity to a remarkable 22,500 pounds. Transitioning from last year’s six-speed automatic gearbox, the standard gasoline V8 is now coupled to an Allison 10-speed automatic. The Glenwood Chevrolet dealer tells us that off-road enthusiasts have a treat in store with the debut of the ZR2 trim and the ZR2 Bison edition, optimized for challenging terrains.
The reviewers at Kelley Blue Book praised the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, writing: “The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD sits at the top of a venerable range of Chevy trucks. The three-quarter-ton 2500 model and one-ton 3500 model offer outstanding towing and hauling capabilities with a choice of two V8 engines; gas or diesel.”
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD comes in six trim levels: starting with the practical Work Truck (WT), moving up to the Custom, LT, LTZ, ZR2, and culminating in the premium High Country. Buyers can expect the rugged ZR2 trim to join the lineup later in the model year. Cabs come in Regular, Double, or Crew configurations, with standard or long beds. While the Regular Cab is spacious enough for three, the Double Cab adds a row of seats, and the Crew Cab gets more rear legroom.
The Silverado 1500HD is powered by a standard 6.6-liter V8 engine producing 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. Buyers looking for maximum towing capacity can choose the optional Duramax 6.6-liter turbodiesel. With 470 hp and 975 lb-ft of torque, this powerplant can pull up to 22,500 pounds. Both engines are mated to a 10-speed Allison transmission.
On the outside, the restyled front end and contemporary headlights stand out immediately. The upper trims are further embellished with dual-projector LED headlights. An intricately designed hood scoop now proudly displays the “Chevrolet” logo in upper-case letters. The addition of standard tow hooks and a palette of new paint hues add to its allure. The Midnight Edition package, exclusive to the High Country trim, features blackened exterior elements and includes LED-illuminated retractable side steps. Legacy features, such as the practical bed steps, continue. The available Multi-Flex tailgate adds functionality, converting the tailgate into multiple configurations.
There are improvements in the cabin, notably in the LT and higher trims, including a modern 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a large 13.4-inch touchscreen angled for the driver’s ease. The revamped center console includes a space for distraction-free wireless phone charging. Additionally, an inventive storage space is concealed behind the infotainment screen.
