2024 Chevy Silverado HD gets new interior, more diesel power

Chevy said the interior has been revamped to feel more open and modern, with a flow-under console designed to create the spaciousness of a bench seat. The LT, LTZ and High Country trucks feature a new instrument panel design with a 13.4-inch infotainment screen and a 12.3-inch configurable driver information screen. A heads-up display is available.

“It’s an environment that deliberately puts greater confidence and a sense of engagement with the vehicle at the driver’s fingertips,” said Phil Jaques, executive director of global Chevrolet design.

The 6.6-liter V-8 gasoline engine is unchanged from today’s truck, but it will come with an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission instead of a six-speed to provide more on-demand towing power and allow for more engine-braking control. Chevy said. This combination enables a gross combined weight rating of 24,000 pounds to 26,000 pounds.

The optional Duramax 6.6-liter turbodiesel V-8 will now offer 445 to 470 hp, and 975 pound-feet of torque, Chevy said. Engineers increased torque by up to 25 percent at low speeds and when climbing hills.

New trailering technologies include a version of adaptive cruise control that accounts for increased drag and braking distance, an increased transparent trailer feature that allows drivers to have a fifth-wheel and gooseneck setup, trailer side blind-zone alert and a gross joint. Lets see behind the weight warning. Measures acceleration and torque to detect whether vehicles and trailers are too heavy.

Pricing and fuel economy ratings will be released closer to the start of production. The trucks will be built in Flint, Mich., and Oshawa, Ontario.

Chevy says it has the largest retail market share in the US heavy-duty pickup segment.
