2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2: What We Know So Far

The ZR2 trim adds off-road prowess to Chevrolet's three-quarter-ton Silverado.


Article QuickTakes:

For the first time, Chevrolet is making its ZR2 off-road package available to heavy-duty truck buyers. The 2024 Silverado HD ZR2 will arrive in showrooms later this year, joining the midsize Colorado ZR2 and half-ton Silverado 1500 ZR2. Here's what you can expect to find on this rugged three-quarter-ton truck.


2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 Styling, Configurations, and Powertrains

Available exclusively in the crew-cab 2500 configuration, the ZR2 package boasts a number of unique styling cues compared with the regular Silverado HD, including revised wheel-opening moldings with integrated mudguards, ZR2 badging, Chevrolet's hollowed-out "flow-tie" grille emblem, and special 18-inch aluminum wheels mounted with 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires. Rounding out the hardware upgrades are Multimatic DSSV dampers, a 1.5-inch lift kit, and model-specific skid plates, steering knuckles, and front-end suspension components.

For those seeking a little more rigor from their heavy-duty truck, Chevrolet is also rolling out a ZR2 Bison trim for the Silverado 2500. Developed in collaboration with the off-roading experts at American Expedition Vehicles, this model wears gloss black 18-inch AEV wheels, stamped-steel bumpers with recovery points at both ends, and hot-stamped skid plates made of high-strength boron steel. Every ZR2 Bison ships with unique badging, front-seat headrests with the AEV logo, winch provisions, and a better approach angle than the ZR2.

Under the hood, shoppers will find a 6.6-liter gas V8 developing 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque, unless they swap it for the available Duramax 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 that's rated for 470 ponies and 975 lb-ft. Both engines mate to an Allison 10-speed automatic transmission.


2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD ZR2 Features and Trims

Chevy fits all Silverado HD ZR2 models with its DuraBed cargo box, a rear bumper with an integrated corner step, a power tailgate, and additional bed steps. The brand's six-position Multi-Flex tailgate is also available.

The truck's interior pairs dark trim with leather upholstery. A 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and a 13.4-inch infotainment screen are standard, while a head-up display and a 360-degree camera are extra-cost options.
