Cab and Engine Options
For the 2024 model, the Chevy Silverado 3500HD has three cab options, typical for any Silverado, with each one offering a a larger cab than the other. Chevy offers the crew cab with a long or standard bed size. Regular and double cabs are only offered with the long bed.
Chevrolet offers a wide variety of other choices, as well. You can choose one of two main engines: a 6.0-liter Variable Valve Timing V8 SFI engine and a Duramax 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 engine. The first produces 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, while the turbo-diesel second gets 470 hp and an incredible 975 lb.-ft of torque. On top of that, you choose between two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive.
The 2024 Silverado 3500HD WT is the least expensive option at around $44,600 for the two-wheel-drive crew cab with standard box and single rear wheel. It comes standard with the 6.0-liter gas engine, two-wheel drive, and a 4.10 axle ratio. With these specs, the WT has a maximum GCWR of 10,400 pounds and a conventional trailer weight of 14,500 lbs.
The Silverado is designed to work in the toughest conditions, so Chevrolet gave it quality warranties to stand behind their work. All Silverado 3500HD models come with a bumper-to-bumper limited warranty of three years or 36,000 miles, a corrosion warranty for the same time frame and a rust-through warranty for six years or 100,000 miles, a limited powertrain/drivetrain warranty for five years or 60,000 miles, RemoteLink Key Fob service, and roadside assistance with courtesy transportation for five years or 60,000 miles.
Designed to provide power on a budget, the WT doesn’t come with many extra features. The exterior includes solar-absorbing glass to keep the cabin comfortable and a tire carrier lock to keep your spare secure. The interior has a six-gauge cluster and a four-speaker audio system. The infotainment system includes a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen with AM/FM radio, USB ports, and an auxiliary jack. For safety, the WT includes the StabiliTrak stability control system with Proactive Roll Avoidance and traction control. It also has a standard rear-vision camera.
The Silverado 3500HD LT can cost you $48,600 for a 2WD crew cab with standard box and single rear wheel. Mechanically, the LT is very similar to the WT, featuring the same engine, axle ratio, and size. Several of the changes in the LT are cosmetic, although there a few additions make this trim more convenient, including the addition of the EZ Lift and Lower Tailgate, an upgraded 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen display as part of the infotainment system, and body-color door handles and body moldings. Like the WT, the LT has a conventional trailer weight of 14,300 pounds.
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD LTZ can cost you up to $59,600. It includes a few cosmetic changes to the truck’s exterior. Such additions include chrome accents found on the door handles, mirror caps, camper mirrors, as well as along the bodyside molding. The interior features a 110-volt AC power outlet, dual-zone automatic climate control, and heated driver and front passenger seating. One of the biggest upgrades is the addition of leather upholstery.
The High Country is a significant upgrade from the LTZ with 20-inch wheels, safety features like a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert, a powerlift tailgate, a the Bose audio system, and rear seat alert.
Also standard is a spray-in bedliner, moveable cargo tie-downs, and an HD surround-view camera.
If all this sounds great, you can get the High Country for $72,100. Truck enthusiasts can also choose the dual rear wheel option for less, though this shrinks the wheels by an inch to a 17-in polished forged-aluminum style. Prices for any trim vary depending on the dealership.
The 2024 Chevy Silverado 3500HD is a serious upgrade in towing power but lighter on features compared to the 1500. If you don’t need this much towing power, your best bet is that or even the 2500HD, which is virtually the same. However, it offers a lower towing capacity and slightly lower price tag too.
