2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 Summary Points

  • The 2024 Silverado 1500 is available in multiple trim levels, from the more basic to the more luxurious and off-road focused.

  • Crew cab models are available with a 5.8-foot box or a “long box” with a 6.6-foot bed. A regular cab with an eight-foot bed is also available.

  • New TurboMax four-cylinder produces more torque than the venerable 5.3-liter V8.

2024 Chevy Silverado 1500: What’s New?

Chevy’s TurboMax 2.7-liter high-output four-cylinder engine appears with V8-like power and torque figures. Moreover, the 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel (an inline-six) is now available for the Silverado ZR2.

Other mindful updates include new paint colors (Lakeshore Blue Metallic and Slate Gray Metallic), active exhaust for the 6.2-liter V8, the Blackout Appearance Package (for Custom, Custom Trail Boss, RST, LT Trail Boss, and ZR2 grades), a rear seat belt indicator, and wireless smartphone connectivity (standard across the lineup).

2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 Bed Configurations

Typical of American trucks, the 2024 Silverado 1500 is available in different body and bed configurations. The lineup includes an extended cab (or “double cab” in Chevy parlance) with four doors, a crew cab with four full-size doors, or a two-door regular cab.

The regular cab can have an eight-foot or a 6.6-foot bed, while the double cab has only a 6.6-foot bed. Crew cab models are available with a 5.8-foot box or a “long box” with a 6.6-foot bed.

2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 Engine Choices

There are four available powertrains for the 2024 Chevy Silverado. A rear-wheel drivetrain is standard (2WD), while 4WD is optional.

There’s the evergreen 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8 with 355 and 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft. and 460 lb-ft. of torque, respectively. Both engines mate to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Meanwhile, the new TurboMax 2.7-liter four-banger generates 310 horsepower and 430 lb-ft. of torque. It connects to an eight-speed automatic to deliver more torque to the pavement than the 5.3-liter V8.

Finally, the 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 has an optional 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel inline-six with 305 horsepower and 495 lb-ft. of torque. The Duramax has the highest torque output in the 2024 Silverado lineup, matching the burly 6.2-liter V8 in pulling power when properly equipped.
