Video: 2024 Chevy Silverado HD Gasser V8 Surprises on Our Denver 100 MPG Loop – Whoa!

Is it worth to buy the diesel?

Can a new gas-powered 2024 Chevy Silverado HD be competitive versus a diesel equivalent truck in efficiency and towing confidence? This is why we do real-world testing. This time it’s the new 6.6L gas V8 and 10-speed automatic combo under the hood of a new Silverado heavy-duty truck versus the Denver 100 mpg loop. I drive 111 miles in this nicely-equipped LTZ crew cab 4×4 unloaded and with a 10,600 lbs trailer. I want to see how this new powertrain compares against the previous gasser with a 6-speed automatic, and how it compares against the Duramax-powered trucks.
