Trims Levels, Configurations, and Powertrains

Nine trims await prospective buyers of the ‘24 Silverado 1500: WT, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, ZR2, and High Country. Cab styles include regular, double, and crew with available short, standard, and long bed options. Four engines are on the menu, with the 2.7-liter TurboMax four-cylinder (310 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque) coming standard in most. The 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 (355 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque) is available for all but the Custom, although it’s standard in the LTZ and High Country.

The 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel, which is standard in the ZR2, generates 305 hp and 495 lb.-ft. of torque and is available for all but the WT and Custom. The four-wheel-drive RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, ZR2, and High Country qualify for the 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8 (420 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque). The Silverado’s transmissions consist of an eight-speed automatic for the 2.7-liter TurboMax and a 10-speed automatic for the others. Rear-wheel drive is standard in most trims, but four-wheel drive is available (it’s standard in the Custom Trail Boss, LT Trail Boss, and ZR2).

Towing and Payload

One of the major hallmarks of the ’24 Silverado 1500 is its towing capabilities, with capacities ranging from 9,300 lb. to 13,300 lb. The payload maximum falls between 1,960 lb. to 2,260 lb., depending on the trim and configuration. Various trailering features, including trailer sway control and hill start assist, are offered to augment the towing experience as well. What’s more, the myChevrolet app provides customized trailer profiles and other desirable diagnostics, while the available 14-angle camera system takes the pain out of hitching a trailer and towing cargo.

Trim-Specific Equipment

If you need a simple and reliable workhorse while keeping your payments minimal, look at the WT. It blends the basics with a few extras, getting LED headlights, recovery hooks, remote keyless entry, 12 cargo tie-down points, and USB data and charging ports. The Custom is upgraded with a high-capacity suspension, remote start, LED cargo bed lighting, a rear window defogger, a power lock and release tailgate, heated side mirrors, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, two 120V power outlets, and cruise control. On top of that, it has a trailering hitch and platform, hitch guidance, a 7-wire electrical harness, and a 7-pin sealed connector that allows you to hook up a trailer’s lights to the vehicle. The Custom Trail Boss is similar, but it adds a two-speed transfer case, an auto-locking rear differential, a heavy-duty air filter, hill descent control, skid plates, a suspension with a two-inch factory lift, and Goodyear Wrangler Territory mud-terrain tires.

The LT lacks the mechanical upgrades found on the Custom Trail Boss, but it raises the comfort stakes with heated front seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control. It also has standard high-intensity LED headlights, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and proximity keyless entry. The RST is sweetened with LED fog lights and taillights. The LT Trail Boss is a mix between the LT and the Custom Trail Boss, but it also includes all-weather floor liners. The LTZ takes things up a notch with improved side mirrors (heated and power-folding with driver’s-side auto-dimming), ventilated front seats with power adjustability for the passenger and position memory for the driver, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, wireless phone charging, perimeter lighting, a power up/down tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, and front outboard perforated leather seats. It also makes towing easier with hitch view and an in-vehicle trailering app.

The ZR2 is the ultimate overlander as it’s equipped with fully locking front and rear differentials, a two-speed transfer case, a high-performance lifted suspension with Multimatic DSSV dampers, and Goodyear Wrangler Territory mud-terrain tires. This rugged trim also gets a spray-on bedliner, a dual-outlet exhaust, heated rear outboard seats, a power-sliding rear window, and a universal garage door opener. It’s eligible for the Bison Edition upgrade, which will outfit American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) front and rear differentials, AEV skid plates, AEV front and rear stamped steel bumpers with heavy-duty recovery points, 18-inch black AEV wheels, AEV floor liners and head restraints, rocker protection, and Chevy’s six-function Multi-Flex tailgate (which is available for every other trim).

At the top of the range, the High Country gets the spray-on bedliner along with chrome recovery hooks, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering column, perforated leather upholstery, heated rear outboard seats, a power-sliding rear window, a power tailgate, a dual-outlet exhaust, and a universal garage door opener. Its mechanical bonuses are an auto-locking rear differential and a high-capacity suspension.

Active Driving Aids

Every ’24 Silverado 1500 trim has the Chevy Safety Assist Package installed, which bundles forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a following distance indicator, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. The LTZ goes a step above with a surround-view camera, trailer side blind-zone alert, front and rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic braking, rear pedestrian alert, and a safety alert seat that uses vibrations to help the driver detect and identify the direction of a potential obstacle.

The ZR2 and High Country group all of that as well, but the ZR2 omits the front parking sensors, while the High Country adds adaptive cruise control. What’s more, the High Country can be ordered with Super Cruise, GM’s hands-free driving system that works on more than 400,000 miles of compatible roads in the U.S. and Canada.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The WT, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss each get the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system, which uses a 7-inch touchscreen and voice recognition to manage wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, a six-speaker sound system, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Custom and Custom Trail Boss also get SiriusXM satellite radio. The LT and higher trims are boosted with the Google built-in Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium setup, which upgrades considerably to a 13.4-inch touchscreen. The LTZ, ZR2, and High Country are enhanced with a premium seven-speaker Bose audio system.
