The Chevy Silverado is known for its durable design and remarkable off-road performance that is hard to find from any other brand. However, this full-size truck is not known for its in-car technologies…until now.
GM Authority reports that the 2024 Silverado HD truck will now involve Wireless Phone Projection for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, serving as a standard across all trim levels. This technology will be applied to both 2500 HD and 3500 HD series trucks.
One should know that the latest Silverado HD Work Truck (WT) and Custom models are geared with the brand’s Infotainment 3 system with a seven-inch touchscreen.
At the same time, the LT, LTZ, and highest-ranking High Country Silverados are fixed with the company’s Infotainment 3 Premium system with Google included. These particular HDs come standard with a 13.4-inch touchscreen.
Creating standard wireless phone projection for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto throughout every trim level of the latest Chevy Silverado HD is a considerable change from the 2023 model. On this year’s HD, the accessibility of the wireless phone projection was based on the following trim levels:
- Work Truck (WT): not available
- Custom: not available
- LT: only available as part of the Convenience Package II or the Advanced Trailing Package (ZL6)
- LTZ: standard feature
- High Country: standard feature
General Motors is making other improvements to the 2024 Silverado HD, specifically by either lessening or doing away with some features and producing others that were either optional or unavailable on some trims, making them standard.
These improvements are part of the Silverado’s refresh for the mid-cycle. The latest HD gets a reworked front fascia with new headlights for a more intensive, high-end look. Inhouse, the Silverado has an entirely restructured cockpit for LT, LTZ, and High Country models, implementing a new 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a center stack with the aforementioned 13.4-inch touchscreen.
The 2024 Silverado HD will have lower 12-volt outlet availability. The front auxiliary power outlet will still serve as a standard feature on WT and Custom models but not on LT, LTZ, and High Country trims. Meanwhile, the rear auxiliary 12-volt outlet is eliminated from all trims.
The revamped Silverado HD tacks on a plethora of standards and options. Automatic Emergency Braking is now featured as a standard on every model. The automaker will make Adaptive Cruise Control a standalone option or included as part of the numerous optional packages contingent on the trim.
At last, the Z71 Off-Road Package can be had on the Custom model for the first time, as it was previously only accessible on the WT, LT, LTZ, and High Country.
Orders opened up for the 2024 Chevy Silverado HD last month, with the MSRP starting price at $45,295 (plus destination fee) for the 2-wheel-drive 2500 HD WT and extends to $75,995 (plus destination fee) MSRP for a 4-wheel-drive 3500 HD High Country with a crew cab, long bed, and dual rear wheel (DRW) set-up.
