    Chevy has built a reputation for making some of the most rugged, dependable, and versatile trucks. The most popular model in the Chevy lineup is the Silverado 1500. This full-size pickup offers more options and choices for things like cab styles, engines, and trims than full-size trucks offered by other brands. This allows you to customize a Chevy Silverado truck to meet your needs and is a big reason why many different types of drivers have chosen a Silverado as their truck, whether they plan on using it primarily for work, pleasure, or a little of both. This versatility is best shown in the 2024 Chevy Silverado LT. This trim comes in around the midpoint on the scale of trim levels for this truck and is a great choice if you need a pickup for work during the week and the family when the weekend rolls around.

    The Silverado LT has many great options for a driver, starting with the choice of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. This trim is offered with a double or crew cab so that you will get two rows of seats. This makes you capable of having up to six passengers, depending on whether you choose a bench seat or a pair of bucket seats for your front row. In addition, the crew cab has the option of a short payload bed in addition to the standard bed. The Silverado LT with the double cab is only available with a standard bed. Other options involve engine, wheels, and certain comfort and convenience features. With a base MSRP of $48,000, the 2024 Silverado 1500 LT gives you plenty of room in your budget to decide on the available features that you would love to have on your truck.[a] In fact, Car and Driver recommended the LT as the preferred trim for the 2024 Silverado.

  • Performance

    The Standard 2.7-Liter TurboMax Engine

    Like most 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 trims, the LT comes equipped with a very efficient 2.7-liter TurboMax I-4 gas engine. This features dual-overhead camshafts (DOHC) with four valves per cylinder, giving you a total of 16 valves. It also features variable valve timing, variable valve lift, and Active Fuel Management to increase efficient performance. As a result, the direct high-pressure fuel-injected engine can deliver up to 310 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. A great deal of this high output comes courtesy of the turbocharger on this engine.

    The Available 5.3-Liter EcoTec V8 Engine

    Chevy also offers two available engines as options on the 2023 Silverado LT. The first is a 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 gas engine. This has a single overhead valve configuration with two valves per cylinder, giving this engine a total of 16 valves. It also uses variable valve timing like the TurboMax engine but has Dynamic Fuel Management instead of the Active Fuel Management system. This is a more advanced system that deactivates cylinders as needed to improve overall fuel economy. This engine also uses direct high-pressure fuel injection to provide 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.

    The Available 3.0-Liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel Engine

    The second optional engine is a 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel I-6. This also uses a turbocharger to boost performance, just like the TurboMax engine; however, this runs on diesel fuel instead of gasoline. The engine itself has a DOHC configuration with four valves per cylinder. This gives the engine a total of 24 valves. Unlike the gas engines on the Silverado LT, which use direct injection, the Duramax Turbo-Diesel uses high-pressure, common-rail direct injection. This allows it to produce up to 305 hp and 495 lb-ft of torque. This ability to maximize torque output at lower engine speeds is a hallmark of turbo-diesel engines.

    Transmission Options

    Each available engine on the 2024 Silverado LT comes paired with a specific transmission. The standard TurboMax engine comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 and the 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel feature a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Duramax adds an Electronic Precision Shift to the transmission system.

    Fuel Economy

    Depending on which engine and drivetrain you choose on your 2024 Chevy Silverado LT, you will get very good to exceptional fuel economy. For example, the Silverado LT with the TurboMax engine will give you 20 MPG in combined fuel economy with rear-wheel drive and 19 MPG if you opt for four-wheel drive. Similarly, choosing the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 with rear-wheel drive will give you 18 MPG in combined fuel economy, while four-wheel drive delivers 17 MPG combined. Still, the best fuel economy on the 2024 Silverado LT can be found with the Duramax Turbo-Diesel. This will give you 26 MPG in combined fuel economy with rear-wheel drive and 24 MPG combined with four-wheel drive.

  • Towing/Payload

    One of the biggest reasons people buy pickup trucks is the towing and hauling capabilities. This ability to handle trailering is unmatched by any other vehicle type. The 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 is one of the leaders in its class for towing and hauling, and the LT trim gives you all of this in a very impressive package.

    Towing

    Your towing capacities in the Silverado 1500 LT will depend on the engine you choose, as well as the cab style and drivetrain. In general, choosing a double cab and rear-wheel drive will provide greater capability than a crew cab and four-wheel drive. Nevertheless, you should still find your Silverado LT will excel in this regard. The LT with the 2.7-liter TurboMax engine will give you the ability to tow up to 9,500 lbs, while choosing the available 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 will allow you to tow 11,300 lbs.

    However, if you are looking for the maximum towing capacity, then the best choice will be a 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel. The Silverado LT with this engine will provide you with the ability to tow up to 13,300 lbs. Whichever you choose, the standard Hitch Guidance system on the Silverado LT will make towing safer and easier than ever.

    Payload

    There are two main variables to cargo hauling on the 2024 Silverado LT. The first is the choice of payload box size, and the second is the engine choice. The LT with a standard bed on either the double cab or crew cab will give you 71.7 cu.ft. of cargo space inside of its 6.6' box. The smaller short bed measures 5.8' and gives you 62.9 cu.ft. of space. The short bed is only available on Silverado LT trims with the crew cab style.

    Unlike towing, where the TurboMax gave you the lowest capability of the three engines, the Silverado LT with a TurboMax will maximize your payload capacity. In fact, this truck with the TurboMax engine is rated to carry up to 2,260 lbs in its payload. This is more than the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 that can haul up to 2,180 lbs and the Duramax Turbo-Diesel that can carry up to 1,970 lbs of cargo.

    Tailgate Features

    Chevy has made hauling cargo easier on the 2024 Silverado LT. It features a standard tailgate with an EZ Lift assist. This allows you to raise and lower the tailgate with just the push of a button. The available Multi-Flex Tailgate on the Silverado LT will allow you to have six different functions, making it easier to access, load, and unload cargo into your truck's payload bed.

  • Technology

    While most folks will think of trucks as being rugged, few might consider them to be technologically advanced. The 2024 Chevy Silverado LT should change all of that. This is one of the most technologically advanced passenger vehicles on the road, as Chevy has used technology to improve safety, passenger comfort, and connectivity in every LT truck.

    Safety

    Chevy has equipped every model of the 2024 Silverado 1500 with its Chevy Safety Assist suite of six standard active driver assistance features. The Following Distance Indicator will let you know if your truck is getting too close to the vehicle in front of you. If the system detects an imminent crash, Forward Collision Alert will alert you to take evasive action, while the system will deploy the Automatic Emergency Braking. This will bring your Silverado to a safe stop or reduce the damages caused by a collision. There is even Front Pedestrian Braking that will act to stop your truck if a pedestrian walks out in front of you.

    One major cause of accidents is when you become distracted, and your truck begins to veer out of your lane. When this happens, Lane Departure Warning will let you know, while Lane Keep Assist will use slight steering adjustments to get you safely back in your lane. Chevy Safety Assist also features IntelliBeam, which will turn your high beams on and off in areas of low light. This is in addition to the standard LED reflector headlamps and daytime running lights on the Silverado LT. Each Silverado LT also has an HD Rear Vision Camera to let you see what is behind you when backing up in your truck. The theft-deterrent unauthorized entry system will also help you prevent someone from trying to steal your truck.

    Comfort and Convenience

    The 2024 Silverado LT can seat up to six passengers, depending on your choice of front 40/20/40 split-bench or bucket seats. These come covered in an attractive cloth fabric. There are USB charging ports in the dashboard and the rear console, so you and your passengers can keep your devices charged up. In addition, Chevy has equipped the Silverado LT with heated side view mirrors, front seats, and steering wheel. These will all come in handy on cold winter mornings.

    Connectivity

    Many of today's trucks feature advanced infotainment systems. One of the best is on the 2024 Chevy Silverado LT. This is the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium System with Google built-in. This comes on a 13.4-inch diagonal display screen and allows you to use, control, and manage most of your smartphone apps right on the screen.

    You can connect your smartphones using Bluetooth streaming, as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so if you have left your charging cables at home, you can still access the system. This will allow you to make hands-free calls and texts using the voice-activated technology for the system. You can also stream your favorite music, or choose from all of the different channels on SiriusXM. The hardest part for you and your passengers is choosing the perfect soundtrack for your next drive.
