Since towing and payload capabilities are typically far more important than interior design or cutting-edge tech features, the current-generation Silverado 2500HD could be forgiven for looking dated on its 2020 arrival. But the Ford F-250 Super Duty and Ram 2500 offered the same levels of performance and featured arguably nicer cabins despite being older. A shift in Chevy's priorities was needed, and quickly.
Better late than never, we suppose. The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is finally getting the comprehensive update it desperately needs, with all manner of powertrain, interior and exterior upgrades. Changes start with the exterior, which gets a handsome new face with horizontal bars that reduce the visual weight of the grille's gaping maw. There are also new LED accent lights that give the Silverado HD a distinctive look at night, and the primary headlights — though still arranged in a four-beam layout — are no longer split by a bar across the grille. The overall effect is far more cohesive.
At the end of the day, we think the 2024 Silverado HD is a heavy-duty pickup that finally has the looks to match its prodigious pulling abilities.
