The right-hand-drive 2024 Chevy Silverado HD has just been formally introduced by General Motors in Australia, as GM Authority previously revealed at the end of November.
The new right-hand-drive 2024 Chevy Silverado HD was just introduced in the Australian market by the carmaker’s GM Australia and New Zealand affiliate. In Australia, the first Chevy heavy-duty trucks were delivered to dealerships in late December. This was verified by the president of GM International and appeared on the GM Specialty Vehicles (GMSV) website.
“I am overjoyed to announce that the new MY24 Chevrolet Silverado HD has begun showing up in dealerships throughout Australia,” stated Shilpan Amin, President and Senior Vice President of GM International. “I think it’s going to be just as successful in Australia as it was after its fantastic debut in North America,” he continued.
The RHD 2024 Chevy Silverado HD, which was just introduced in Australia, is equivalent to the 2500 HD model. It has a unique equipment level named LTZ Premium for that nation, which includes the Z71 off-road package, body-colored mouldings, and Black Chevy Bow Tie insignia as standard. Consequently, this version has an extensive array of technological and safety features, making it the most sophisticated HD pickup available.
Mechanically speaking, the 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax engine, which is rated at 470 horsepower and 975 pound-feet of torque, is connected to an Allison brand 10-speed automatic gearbox in the RHD 2024 Chevy Silverado HD for the largest country in Oceania. The Z71 package also has a strong suspension system that enhances off-road capability and all-around adaptability.
Through GMSV’s official dealer network in Australia, the new 2024 Chevy Silverado HD in right-hand drive form is currently available. The truck is converted on the company’s special RHD conversion line of full-size pickup trucks at the Dandenong, Victoria, facility. The 2024 Silverado HD will soon be released in New Zealand; the first quarter of the year is when it is currently planned to happen.
