    Do you need to haul 14,000 lbs behind you? Or 15,000 lbs? What about 25,000 lbs or more of weight loaded into a trailer behind your truck? If so, then you are out of luck with the Chevy Silverado 1500. It's an amazing truck, but it’s unable to tow more than 13,300 lbs behind it. Or maybe you need to load up more than 2,500 lbs of weight into the bed of your truck? What about 5,000 lbs? Again, the Silverado 1500 is not up to the task since it tops out at 2,260 lbs of maximum payload; that is fantastic, but not enough if you need something more. For everything the Silverado 1500 can do, it has its limits. If you need to go beyond those limits, then the 2024 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD is the truck for you.

    For the 2024 model year, the legendary Silverado 3500 HD is better than ever, thanks to numerous upgrades inside and out. For starters, you now get Chevy’s amazing 10-speed Allison automatic transmission regardless of which engine you choose, giving you a responsive and powerful driving experience with either a gas or diesel engine. Speaking of which, you still have two rugged and bold engines to choose from. In fact, the powerful Duramax diesel engine has been tuned for even better performance this year, giving you 470 hp and 975 lb-ft of torque. Further, low-end torque has been improved to give you more muscle at low speeds and when climbing uphill, perfect for towing.

    Speaking of towing, the Silverado 3500 HD gives you incredible trailering capability and payload capacities, so you can get your job done. The 2024 Silverado 3500 HD can handle up to 7,234 lbs of maximum payload or haul up to 36,000 lbs of weight behind it with a fifth wheel or gooseneck trailer. Inside, you will find that the Silverado 3500 HD has been redesigned and improved for the 2024 model year, including an incredible 13.4-inch infotainment screen, a 12.3-inch configurable driver information center, and much more on most trim levels. With advanced driver technology and Adaptive Cruise Control available, you get more from this truck than ever before.

  • Engines and Performance

    Updated Powertrain Options

    In many ways, the engine is the foundation of a truck: a weak engine means you have a truck that is ready to crumble at the first challenge, while a powerful engine gives you a strong truck ready to stand tall and tackle anything you need. Even the largest and most well-built pickup on the road would be rendered inadequate if it had a tepid or underwhelming engine slapped into it. Fortunately, Chevy understands this (of course they do, they are legends in the truck world), and you can see this illustrated perfectly in the two amazing engines offered for the 2024 Silverado 3500 HD.

    The standard pick is a 6.6L V8 gas engine that delivers 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque. This is tremendous power that ensures the 2024 Silverado 3500 HD is fun and rewarding to drive; not necessarily fun like a sports car, but fun in the sense of being able to roar down the road with incredible power packed into it. Last year, this engine was offered with a six-speed automatic transmission, which is fine, but for the 2024 model year, Chevy has paired it with the same 10-speed Allison automatic that comes with the diesel option. This provides you with a smooth and responsive drive that holds close to peak power, regardless of which engine you prefer.

    If you are looking for boosted power, you owe it to yourself to check out the available 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8 engine, which is better than ever. Last year, the diesel engine for the Silverado 3500 HD offered an impressive 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque; for 2024, Chevy’s engineers have boosted output to 470 hp and a massive 975 lb-ft of torque. This is simply incredible power that you truly have to feel to fully appreciate. Chevy also improved the low-end torque to provide you with a better experience at low speeds and while climbing grades.

  • Payload and Towing

    Tow More, More Safely

    While some drivers might like the style of the 2024 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD and choose it purely based on looks or the desire to have a dual rear-wheel (DRW) configuration, for most of us, this kind of truck is all about the work it can handle. The standard Silverado 1500 is an amazing pickup that offers tremendous capability, but it cannot come close to what the Silverado 3500 HD can do, making this model the superior choice if you need to be able to get some serious work done. Just keep in mind that your choice of engine, configuration, and available options can impact payload and towing capacities.

    Although a single rear-wheel (SRW) setup for the Silverado 3500 HD can work well, if you want the maximum payload and towing ratings, then a DRW configuration is the way to go. For example, the 2024 Silverado 3500 HD SRW with the standard gas engine can handle up to 4,502 lbs of maximum payload or up to 16,000 lbs of conventional towing. By comparison, a similar model with a DRW setup can handle up to 7,234 lbs of maximum payload or up to 18,700 lbs of conventional towing—choosing the available diesel engine can boost that to 20,000 lbs of towing. Where the 2024 Silverado 3500 HD truly shines, with a DRW configuration and the diesel engine, is gooseneck or fifth wheel towing, which lets it haul up to 36,000 lbs.

    This kind of amazing capability is one thing, but the remarkable technology Chevy packs into the 2024 Silverado 3500 HD to support towing is another. For example, this year, Chevy has introduced Adaptive Cruise Control with Trailer support that lets you put less work into driving long distances because the system compensates for the added drag and extra braking distances needed while towing. An Enhanced Transparent Trailer camera view improves the previous version of this technology to allow for functionality with a gooseneck trailer. Finally, Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert extends the coverage of this driver-assist technology to include the added size of a trailer. All of this makes towing easier and safer than ever before.

    Fresh Features and Advanced Connectivity

    We love the power and functionality of the Silverado 3500 HD, but for the 2024 model year, Chevy has gone further than ever before to bring incredible technology to this heavy-duty truck. While you will not find these features on every trim, the LT, LTZ, and High Country trims have received a fully redesigned and updated interior that changes everything we have come to expect from a powerful pickup like this. Models with this redesigned interior feature a stunning 13.4-inch infotainment display that makes it easy to keep track of navigation, interact with available apps, and much more. This is paired with a 12.3-inch configurable driver information center display that gives you the information you need to keep track of.

    The available wireless phone charger has a new design to keep your device out of the way, reducing distractions and making it easier to use. Overall, the interior feels more open and modern than last year’s model, plus the infotainment display and center controls are angled toward the driver, creating the feel of a “command center” that you are at the heart of while you are behind the wheel. Speaking of controls, new audio control knobs strike the ideal balance between physical and digital controls, making it easy to keep your eyes on the road. Finally, Google built-in makes it simple to access your favorite apps inside your Silverado 3500 HD, even if you don't have your phone with you.
