With its impressive trim levels, three beds, three cabs, four engines, and an almost unlimited number of ways to configure it, you’ll have to concentrate for some considerable time to think of a job around Sudbury the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 can’t handle. There are many reasons people buy pickup trucks these days. And whether it’s commuting, working, towing, hauling, cruising around, shopping, off-roading, or wilderness weekend adventures, the 2024 Silverado 1500 has it covered.
The first thing most shoppers want to know about any pickup truck is its capability, and the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a lot of capability. The Silverado 1500 has a maximum trailer rating of 6,033 kg and a maximum payload of 1,030 kg when properly configured. Every model is available with four-wheel-drive, and the ZR2 is well-equipped to stake its claim as the most off-road capable model in the lineup for those who need to keep going when the pavement has long since run out.
The standard equipment of the 2024 Silverado 1500 ZR2 includes the most potent Silverado engine, four-wheel-drive, a 2-speed Autotrac transfer case, driver-selectable full-locking front and rear differentials, hill descent control, a high-performance lifted suspension, Multimatic DSSV dampers, Performance Red recovery hooks, HD Surround Vision, and plenty more. If you want a full-size truck ready for the wilderness, you’ll have to go some way to match the standard spec of the ZR2.
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has four different engine options available to suit a wide range of applications, drivers, and budgets. The standard unit is a 2.7-litre turbo-four that some people might think of as a little small until they discover it puts out 310 horsepower and a whopping 430 lb.-ft. of torque, that is. A more traditional 5.3-litre V-8 is the second unit available, and this one produces 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque.
A 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbodiesel is the third option with its 277 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of available torque, which is worth considering by anyone serious about regular heavy towing. The last but certainly not least of the powerful quartet of engines is a 6.2-litre gas V-8, and this one puts 420 horsepower and the same 460 lb.-ft. of torque as the turbodiesel at the Silverado’s disposal. Most trim levels are standard rear-wheel-drive with the option of four-wheel-drive, and every configuration sends its power to the wheels through a standard 10-speed automatic transmission. Many will be pleased to learn that the ZR2 is now available with the 3.0-litre Duramax diesel engine for the 2024 model year.
The starting point for configuring your new 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is nine trim levels, or six if you don’t want standard four-wheel-drive. The nine available trim levels include the fleet-focused WT (Work Truck), Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ, and range-topping High Country. The Custom Trail Boss, LT Trail Boss, and ZR2 all get four-wheel-drive as part of their standard specification and are not available in a rear-drive format.
Once you decide on your trim level, engine, and exterior colour, there are many ways to make your truck as unique as you are by choosing from the extensive list of available options. Even the range-topping High Country, with its sensational standard specification, has plenty of options. You can make this exceptional truck even more special with the likes of adaptive cruise control, head-up display, rear camera mirror, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking, various 22-inch alloy wheel designs, and several upgrade packages. The 2024 model year also ushers in an available Midnight Edition for the High Country trim, while even the WT trim now gets wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability.
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a full-size light-duty pickup truck with immense capability and even greater flexibility.
