For the 2022 model year, Chevy updated the Silverado 1500 and now the heavy-duty versions are getting a refresh for the 2024 model year. The mid-cycle refresh brings updated styling, an upgraded interior and upgraded turbodiesel V8.
Under the hood buyers can choose from either a 6.6-liter V8 and or 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V8. The Duramax now has more power at 470 horsepower and 975 lb-ft. of torque, compared to 445 hp and 910 lb-ft. The gasoline-powered V8’s power figures stay the same at 401 hp and 464 lb-ft. The big change for the V8 is that it’s now mated to the same 10-speed automatic transmission as the turbodiesel.
On the outside the updates bring a redesigned grille, new headlights, the “CHEVROLET” lettering on the hood scoop and updated wheel designs. Inside the LT, LTZ and High Country trim levels now have a 13.4-inch display for the infotainment system and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. On the tech front, the Silverado HD gets a longer list of driving aids, like Adaptive Cruise Control with Trailer, which lets the adaptive cruise control system to take into account a trailer’s drag and effect on braking.
