Let’s be honest; trucks are held to a different set of standards than regular vehicles. Power, performance, and capabilities are all important aspects for a truck to excel in. But what truck can offer purposeful power, enhanced performance, and impressive capabilities while still providing daily comforts and luxuries? That truck would be the 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. Whether it’s a workhorse ready to seize the day or a daily driver that dominates the road, the new Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is ready to charge ahead.
Five trim options, with a sixth one being added, provide ample customization for whatever your needs may be. Chevy’s Silverado 2500 HD line-up consists of the Work Truck trim, Custom, LT, LTZ, and the High-Country, with the ZR2 trim being added to the HD options for the first time. A gas or turbo-diesel engine combined with a renowned ten-speed automatic transmission will give you a powerful truck, no matter which one you choose.
Available trailering technology, combined with trailering packages, ensures you get the most out of your truck. Features like Transparent Trailer View offer a unique take on trailering. Take advantage of the 14 different camera views that make hitching, reversing, and unloading easy. Of course, it isn’t all about towing or hauling, which is why the Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is available with some of the best safety technologies to keep the road a safer place to be. Cameras, sensors, and smart tech provide a helping hand and a second pair of eyes as you navigate work, family, and fun. All of this is matched with an interior fit for a sedan but with the benefits of a truck. Infotainment features and cabin luxuries make this a truck you won't want to miss.
Have you ever heard the old saying, “It’s what’s on the inside that counts”? Well, the 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD proves that. With two exciting motors to choose from, the power and performance you want in a heavy-duty truck are just one decision away. Gas or diesel, you choose the experience you want.
The first engine option is a mighty direct fuel injection V8 gas engine that puts the heavy duty in the Silverado 2500 HD. The 6.6-liter V8 engine is paired with the Allison automatic tranny, producing 401 ponies. The addition of the Allison transmission is appreciated for its reliability and performance. Throw in 464 lb-ft of torque, and you have a work truck designed to get the job done.
With this sort of mechanical mastery, it should come as no surprise that the Silverado 2500 HD is more than just looks. With the right combination, the V8 allows the Silverado HD to tow up to 18,700 pounds. That’s more than plenty to work hard and play hard. Plus, with the addition of the Max Trailering Package, you can beef up capabilities on the gas-powered 2500 HD.
Sometimes you need a bit more to get those tough jobs done, and that’s where the Duramax V8 turbo-diesel comes in. This is an amped-up 6.6-liter that takes towing and hauling to the next level. Also paired with the Allison ten-speed transmission, the turbo-diesel pulls out all the stops with 470 horsepower. The “oohs” and “aahs” do not stop there. The Duramax turbo-diesel almost doubles the torque of the gas-powered engine. Producing an eye-popping 975 lb-ft of torque, the Silverado HD turbo-diesel has the potential to tow up to 22,500 pounds. Chevy is definitely showing off with this stand-out, well-tuned engine.
Safety is important no matter what vehicle you drive, but when driving such a large and in-charge vehicle, you want to know that nothing is left to chance. That’s why the 2024 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is loaded top to bottom with the most up-to-date and relevant safety technology. Even driver assistance features work to make your travels safer and more convenient.
Available Driver Assistance features on the Silverado HD provide an extra layer of protection for you and those you love. Features like Teen Driver allow you to take control of the road ahead. Teen Driver is a specially designed program that monitors inexperienced drivers using limits you set in place. A report card keeps you informed of your young driver’s habits to pinpoint bad habits and highlight good ones.
One unique safety and assistance feature is the Safety Alert Seat. The Safety Alert Seat uses vibrations or beeps to indicate which direction a potential collision could occur to help you respond. The addition of OnStar rounds out the Driver Assistance features, offering aid in a crisis.
A suite of safety features works alongside you as you drive, ensuring you are alerted to potential collisions. One such feature is the Following Distance Indicator which measures how far behind another vehicle you are to let you gauge if you need to slow down. Taking this a step further are the Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Front Pedestrian Braking features. Forward Collision Alert and Front Pedestrian Braking can provide an alert if you are following too closely to the vehicle in front of you or if there is a pedestrian, and it could result in impact. If providing indicators and alerts is not enough to prevent a collision, Automatic Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Braking can kick in, preventing or lessening impact and injury.
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning also works to keep you safe. If the vehicle detects that you are leaving your lane unintentionally, like from drifting or dozing off, the program can turn your wheel ever so slightly to alert you to your drifting. If this doesn’t work, it can provide additional alerts to keep you in your lane. If the vehicle detects that you are intentionally leaving your lane or are using your turn signal, yet it is still unsafe to do so, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert will send out an audible and visual warning not to merge. Rear Cross Traffic Alert can provide notification if there are obstacles behind you when in reverse. Rear Park Assist does something similar, but when you are parking. All these safety features and more work together to make sure you have front, side, and rear protection and act as an extra set of eyes, as it can sometimes be difficult to see around the large 2500 HD.
When you need a vehicle that will work as hard as you do, you need a truck, but not any old truck will do. You need the new Chevy Silverado 2500 HD, which is loaded with tech and features to make towing, trailering, and hauling easier than ever. Whether you are looking to hitch up for work, haul for home, or tow for fun, the Silverado 2500 HD is decked out to handle it all.
The new Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is designed to offer more cargo volume than many other trucks. Get 69.5 cubic feet of cargo volume when you choose a standard bed or choose a long bed for 83.5 cubic feet of cargo. But it isn’t the impressive cargo room that deserves the most attention; rather, it’s how it is used. The way that the Durabed is designed allows you to get the most out of your truck with a unique tailgate and plenty of useful features.
The 2500 HD had Chevy's Multi-Flex Tailgate that offers six unique functions. Use it as a traditional tailgate for function number one. Function number two builds off the normal tailgate function with an inner gate that folds down for easier access to items in your bed. That same inner gate can turn into a step to climb in and out of your bed with ease or can turn into a work desk, so your office is wherever you are. Additionally, there are two different load-stop functions giving you flexibility on how you haul.
Available LED lighting and perimeter lighting make loading and unloading in the dark less of a task, while an included outlet provides power for onsite tools or even camping equipment. A dozen tie-downs with an incredible 500-pound rating per corner make securing your cargo safer. Who knew a truck bed could have so much potential?
How much you can tow is not all that matters; sometimes, it is about how you tow. That’s why the new Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is loaded with features designed to make towing and trailering safe and simple. One feature is an enhanced version of the Transparent Trailer View. Transparent Trailer uses an assortment of camera views to put together a perspective that allows you to virtually “see through” your trailer to what is behind it. It is enhanced because it now works for both traditional trailers and fifth wheel/gooseneck trailers.
Another feature that makes driving with a trailer easier is Adaptive Cruise Control with Trailering. This feature allows you to use cruise control while having a trailer attached. The program compensates for the added weight of the trailer and adjusts for the change in braking and pull.
When trailering, you can also depend on Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert to help avoid potential collisions. Much like Side Blind Zone Alert when not trailering, this safety feature can detect obstacles in your blind spot and extends this detection to your trailer as well. All of this is possible with the 14 different camera views available.
