You’ll see many pickup trucks on the roads of Thornhill, North York, Markham, Richmond Hill, and the rest of the Greater Toronto Area, but few are as capable, flexible, powerful, durable, and technologically advanced as the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. If there’s a task you need to achieve or somewhere you need to get to, you can be sure there’s a 2024 Silverado 1500 configuration available that’s got it covered.
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is available in nine trim levels or six if you want to stick with a standard rear-drive format. The nine available trim levels are the WT, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ, and range-topping High Country. However, the Custom Trail Boss, LT Trail Boss, and ZR2 are not available in a two-wheel-drive format as these three get four-wheel-drive as part of their standard specification.
The exterior styling of the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is big, bold, rugged and ready for work, but the aesthetic is a little softer and more accessible than it has been previously. The interior of the Silverado can be as practical or as luxurious as you want it to be, and you have a choice of Regular, Double, and Crew Cab body styles with seating for up to six people. Every trim level has its own unique style, but many options and accessories are available to make your Silverado 1500 as individual as you are.
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 will assume is a little small for a full-size truck but actually boasts a substantial 310 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque that many shoppers will find more than adequate. If a more traditional large-displacement unit is your preference, the Silverado is happy to oblige with the second unit in the lineup, a 5.3-litre V-8 that puts out 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque.
Diesel lovers get catered for with a 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbodiesel that provides the half-ton Silverado 1500 with 277 horsepower and a substantial 460 lb.-ft. of torque, and this one has to be a contender for anyone serious about regular heavy towing. The pinnacle of the powerful quartet of engines is a 6.2-litre gas V-8 producing 420 horsepower and the same 460 lb.-ft. of torque as the turbodiesel. Most trim levels in their standard forms push their power to the rear wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission, as the eight-speed has been discontinued for the 2024 model year. However, four-wheel drive is available throughout the lineup if it doesn’t already come as part of a trim level’s standard specification.
There’s nothing wrong with buying a pickup truck capable of towing up to 6,033 kg, hauling up to 1,030 kg, or one with off-road capability for negotiating that most challenging terrain. However, different drivers have different levels of skill and experience, so Chevrolet incorporates plenty of the latest technology into the 2024 Silverado 1500 to make life a little easier for everyone. A few enhancements for the 2024 model year include the 3.0-litre diesel engine becoming available with the ZR2 trim, the WT trim benefitting from wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and the High Country is now available as a Midnight Edition.
Hardcore off-road duties are taken care of by the ZR2 with its standard four-wheel-drive, Multimatic DSSV dampers, front and rear locking differentials, and an enhanced 2-speed transfer case with Terrain Mode. And there’s an available Bison Package that adds even greater off-road capability and style. Towing assistance comes from advanced features such as HD Surround Vision, Hitch Guidance with Hitch View, Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert, Auxiliary Trailer and Bed View cameras, and plenty more. You can even have Super Cruise with trailering for your Silverado 1500, a semi-autonomous driver assistance feature that allows the driver to remove their hands from the steering wheel for extended periods.
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 can be any version of a full-size light-duty pickup truck you want or need it to be.
