The improvements to the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD trucks are more than superficial, however.
New transmission, more powerful diesel
Sure, the facelift and redesigned cabin help Chevy’s rugged pickups stay fresh, but the bottom line is that the Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD are built for the job. That’s where their updated powertrains come in. The standard gasoline-powered 6.6-liter V8 is unchanged, meaning it produces the same 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque as its predecessor. However, it is now mated to a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission instead of a six-speed automatic. Chevy says the gasser’s new transmission helps the engine make better use of its peak power. For 2024, gas-powered Silverado HDs also have a higher gross combined weight rating (GCWR), which is increased from 24,000 to 26,000 pounds.
The optional 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V8 continues with the same Allison 10-speed automatic transmission, but its power increases considerably. It now produces 470 horsepower (down from 445) and 975 lb-ft of torque (down from 910). Chevy says the increases come from updates to the control architecture, combustion system and turbocharger, which are also said to help deliver up to 25% more low-end torque and improve efficiency. . However, we don’t know how the updates will affect fuel economy, as the trucks are exempt from EPA testing and the company doesn’t currently share estimates. What we do know is that the 2024 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD still have maximum towing ratings of 22,500 and 36,000 pounds, respectively.
