Ooh yea! TFLtruck is one of the first to take the redesigned 2024 Chevy Silverado HD Duramax turbo-diesel pickup truck for drive and several 0-60 MPH runs. The new 2024 model year Chevy heavy-duty trucks are leaving their factory in Oshawa, Ontario Canada and reaching their customers.

The 2024 trucks have a new front-end style. The WT (work truck), Custom, and LT trim levels get updated headlights and revised grilles. The upper-level LTZ and High Country models get a redesigned grille and new LED signature with LED ligths and fog lamps.

The truck you see here is a fully-loaded High Country model. It’s equipped with an updated 6.6-liter Duramax turbo-diesel V8 that has more power than before. They still call this engine the L5P generation. It’s now rated at 470 horsepower and 975 lb-ft of torque. This is 25 horsepower and 65 lb-ft more than before. This is thanks to some changes with the fuel system, injectors, turbocharger setup, and more. The engine is still mated to a 10-speed automatic Allison-branded transmission.

While the engine is more powerful than before – it is not class-leading on paper. The Ford Super Duty has more horsepower. Ram and Ford offer more torque than this Duramax. Of course, a proper HD truck drag race is still in the works.

The truck also has update interior and technology. The interior features a 13.4-inch center infotainment screen and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. It’s loaded with driver-assistance features and lots of helpful technologies for towing.

The truck you see here has approximately 2,997 lbs of payload and up to 19,100 lbs of maximum gooseneck towing.

This truck has an as-tested sticker price of just over $87,000.
