The 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 is one of the legendary trucks we will find in the market. Its battle with the Ford F-150 continues. After a short stint in the diesel ring, those two are moving their rivalry to the electric class. Both F-150 Lighting and Silverado EV are announced. It is just a matter of time when will the production start.
Like every other Chevrolet, the Silverado pickup truck is going to offer plenty of options. In this world, cabin configurations and bed lengths are important. Nevertheless, the 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be a hauler at the first place. Not as good as HD models, but still pretty efficient if you don’t need to haul huge cargo.
Numerous trim levels are also available. You can pick from the basic offer, to the premium waters where there is the High Country. The situation is similar under the hood. The entry-level drivetrain is now a 2.7-liter turbo-four with 300 hp. Still, truckers are keener on a V8 power. A pair of such units expects the reinforcement. Supercharged V8 will be under the bonnet of the high-performance ZR2 truck. Also, there are some cool concepts that could happen soon.
2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 Packages
The selection of trim levels depends on the cab and bed configurations. Of course, the Crew Cab offers the most upgrades. The base truck is the WT (Work Truck). It is available for the Regular and Double Cab setups. The second one also offers LT and RST. Trail Boss is one of the recommended models, especially for those who plan working off the road. The RST is sportier version, with many exterior upgrades. The ZR2 is the 4×4 specialist, mostly thanks to the mighty V8 engine under the hood. The LTZ and High Country are the top of the range version. Bose audio, navigation, trailer camera, and Super Cruise are some of the options added.
Engines, Diesel, Towing Capacity
A 2.7-liter engine is now the entry-level unit for the 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 lineup. It is pretty impressive configuration, especially after the last year’s boost of torque. Now, the powerplant cracks 430 lb-ft. There is no V6 mill anymore, at least not in a petrol variant. If you are looking for six-cylinders, then Duramax delivers the 3.0-liter diesel plant with the best in class towing capacity of nearly 13,000 pounds.
Finally, there is a pair of V8 engines to close the chapter. A 5.3-liter is the choice of most buyers. It can produce 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the 6.2-liter mill, it costs $10,000 fewer. And if you are willing to spend extra, this one is going to deliver 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. This is the best hauler in the family with a towing capacity of 13,300 lbs.
2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 EV
Finally, the electric version is going to be out soon. The 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 EV is the second truck using batteries by the GM. Hummer EUT debuted with some cool features, and the Silverado EV could take Crab Walk or Extract Mode.
