Chevy’s 1-ton pickup was originally planned to receive a mid-cycle update this year but the update was delayed for a year due to the shortage of semiconductors and other supplies. Therefore, the new versions will arrive in the next year, as the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500. Those are the latest reports we are getting from the officials and from what we know so far, the update will be pretty comprehensive, as it will include changes in various aspects.
Of course, the most notable changes will be those in terms of the styling but that won’t be all. The next year’s models will also come with a completely redesigned cabin, which will bring a way more attractive design. Finally, count on big upgrades under the hood, as the diesel engine is about to get significant power and torque increase, while the gasoline engine is about to get new transmission.
We believe that the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 could arrive already in the next summer.
2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Design
As we’ve just mentioned, this will be a pretty comprehensive update, with changes in various aspects. Of course, one of the first things that come to mind is the styling and if we can judge on the spy shots and camouflaged areas, there will be a fair amount of them. Naturally, the biggest changes will come to the front end, where we count on revisions in areas like headlights, grille, front bumper etc. The rear end may also come with a couple of updates, in terms of the new tailgate, rear bumper etc.
On the other hand, the mechanical aspect of the truck probably won’t feature any changes, even though there are reports that suggest revisions on the suspension, particularly in the rear end, in order to improve ride quality.
Interior updates are probably more important than those from the outside. The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 is about to get a completely new interior design and from what we know so far, the cabin will be designed in the same fashion as the one that recently debuted with the Silverado 1500. That means a completely new design, with a far more modern dashboard look, as well as with all kinds of advanced tech features, such as a massive infotainment screen, digital instrument cluster etc. Also, the gear shifter will finally be moved from the steering column to the center console.
On the other hand, the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 will continue with familiar cab styles and bed sizes on offer, with the same configurations and same passenger space. You can choose between long and short beds, as well as between Single, Double and Crew cab layouts.
2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Engines
Big changes are coming under the hood as well, and that particularly refers to the 6.6-liter V8 turbodiesel. This engine current puts out 450 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque but the upcoming update will bring a significant increase. From what we know, the max output will go around 500 horsepower, while the max output could go all-away up to 1.100 pound-feet of torque. We presume this increase will have an impact on the overall capabilities, so the max towing could be even higher than the current 36.000 pounds.
On the other hand, the gasoline engine will continue with the same specs. This engine features 6.6 liters in displacement and features a max output of 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque and the biggest novelty for the next year will be a new transmission. Instead of the 6-speed unit, it will come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Release Date and Price
We believe that the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 could arrive already in the next summer, with a starting price of around 40.000 dollars. Of course, Ford F-350 and Ram 3500 will remain key competitors.
