As General Motors prepares to launch the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD, the current model has received a small price increase across the board.
Entry-level WT and Custom trims now cost $$ 100 more than before.
The GM Authority reports that $ 400 is the price increase for the LT, LTZ and High Country with luxury.
The cheapest configuration is the 2500 WT Regular Cab Long Bed 2WD with the 6.6 liter V8 petrol engine.
Including target rate of US$ 1,895, said configuration is US$ 42,395 at press time.
At the other end of the spectrum, the 3500 High Country Crew Cab Long Bed DRW 4WD with the 6.6 liter Duramax V8 turbo diesel costs US $ 82,745 without optional extras and accessories.
Manufactured at the plant in Oshawa, Canada, and the plant in Flint, Michigan, the heavy-duty truck can tow up to 36,000 pounds (for a total of 16,329 kilograms).
The maximum payload is 7,442 pounds (16,407 kg) and the maximum torque you can expect from the Chevrolet Silverado HD is 910 pound-feet (1,234 Nm) for the Duramax.
Unfortunately for General Motors, the Ram HD goes up to 1,075 pound-feet (1,458 Nm) six-cylinder.
Even the 2024 model leaves a lot to be desired in that regard, with the Duramax in the redesigned Silverado HD producing 975 pound-feet (1,322 Nm).
Ford Motor Company, however, trumps General Motors and Ram with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel in the Super Duty.
High-output tuning is rated at 1,200 foot-pounds (1,627 Nm).
The 2024 Ford Super Duty offers the highest towing capacity (40,000 pounds or 18,144 kilograms) and payload capacity (8,000 pounds or 3,629 kilograms) in the segment.
Sales of the Chevrolet Silverado dropped to third place in the full-size segment in the third quarter of 2022, just behind the Ram P/U and the Ford F-Series.
Adding the GMC Sierra to the mix, General Motors full-size truck sales outsell both the F-Series and Ram P/U with a grand total of 550,444 units sold in the first three quarters, compared to 467,307 Fords and 363,089 Rams .
