With more than a quarter century of experience now under its belt, it remains one of the most popular models on the market, whether you’re talking about the standard Silverado 1500, or the heavy-duty Chevy Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD.

The enhancements to the 2024 model build on its core strengths to provide an even stronger balance of the design, strength and confidence that makes tackling the hard jobs, including trailering, easier and more convenient than ever.”
