Chevy’s 2024 Silverado: Exciting Updates and Affordable Price Adjustments

Chevrolet is making waves in the truck market with the 2024 Silverado, bringing some great news for truck enthusiasts. The highlight? Only minor bumps in prices and a significantly reduced cost for the ZR2, mirroring GMC’s strategy with the Sierra.

New Engine Options and Lower ZR2 Price

In a smart move reminiscent of the Sierra AT4X, Chevrolet has diversified the ZR2 engine lineup for 2024. The ZR2, previously available only with the 6.2-liter V8, now offers the 3.0-liter Duramax diesel inline-six as its base engine. This change results in a noteworthy $1,500 drop in price. However, it’s worth noting that the 6.2-liter V8 comes with a slightly higher price tag of $73,590, up by $195.

Trucks equipped with the 6.2-liter engine boast a dual-mode active exhaust, and the High Country trim now features adaptive cruise control as a standard feature. For other trims offering the 6.2-liter option, prices have increased by approximately $600 to $1,000.

Stylish Additions and Midnight Editions

Designers have introduced the Midnight Edition for the High Country, aligning with the existing editions for the Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss. Priced at $1,715, this package includes black retractable side steps, LED perimeter lighting, black recovery hooks, and 20-inch black wheels. Interestingly, it’s exclusively available with black exterior paint. Additionally, Chevrolet has expanded the blackening options for various trims, providing customization choices to suit diverse preferences.

Package Updates and Pricing Adjustments

The ZR2 Bison Edition Package sees a price increase of $545, reaching $8,440 without additional options. Meanwhile, the entry-level 2.7-liter Turbo H.O. four-cylinder gas engine is now known as TurboMax. The Work Truck (WT) model now comes standard with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Two new exterior colors, Lakeshore Blue Metallic and Slate Gray Metallic, join the color palette, both offered without an extra charge. Moreover, the optional Safety Package now includes front and rear park assist, enhancing safety features.

As for pricing, the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRPs) have seen increases ranging from $100 to $700. The destination price has risen by $100 to $1,995. Here’s a breakdown of the current model year prices and their differences from 2023:

  • Work Truck: $38,795 ($600 increase)
  • Custom: $45,495 ($100 increase)
  • Custom Trail Boss: $53,795 ($100 increase)
