The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD has officially broken cover. And with that comes a fresh face, a more technologically advanced interior, more diesel power, and the confirmation of a first-ever ZR2 trim level for the Silverado HD family.
2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2: Details
Chevy is still (officially) light on the details for the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2. During a media briefing this morning, The Bowtie Brand would simply acknowledge that it’s coming, but wouldn’t say if the big ZR2 will be offered on both the Silverado 2500 HD and/or Silverado 3500 HD, and wouldn’t confirm if it will be gas-powered, Duramax diesel-powered, or an option for both. Nor did they officially state things like the tire make, tire sizes, whether or not there’s a front-locking differential, or just exactly what it will look like. Other than the teaser photo, which depicts a “flowtie” with a red bordered center, ZR2 badge, and unique grille mesh inlay. Ultimately, this big off-road truck looks to carry as many things and people as physically possible into the great, growing space currently occupied by both the Ram HD Power Wagon and Ford Super Duty Tremor.
All that said, here’s what we know. As MC&T exclusively reported in spring of 2022, the Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 is expected to feature a set of 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, both a front and rear locking differential, and a choice between both the 6.6L gasoline V8, as well as the 6.6L L5P Duramax diesel V8. A top-shelf Bison package could come later, adding a winch-capable front bumper, more robust underbody plating, unique wheels, and other touches. Moreover, a GMC equivalent in the 2024 Sierra HD AT4X is also expected. Spy photos of these big behemoths have confirmed that General Motors is indeed working on both.
Pricing of the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 remains TBA. The ZR2 will also hit production after the launch of the rest of the 2024 Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD lineup that’s set to begin in the first half of 2023.
