The new information about the upcoming 2023 Chevy Silverado HD has just come out, and it seems that it will receive some upgrades. First of all, the heavy-duty truck was spied testing last week camouflaged, but we managed to see some modifications under wraps. As you probably know, the Chevrolet’s half-ton pickup truck Silverado 1500 debuted on September 9, and it should reportedly share many cues with the upcoming HD models.
Moreover, if recent rumors are true, the new truck will likely debut in 2022 as the 2023 model year. Alongside robust design, this beast has class-leading horsepower and torque. Here’s all we know so far about the upcoming truck.
2023 Chevy Silverado HD Redesign
The 2023 Chevy Silverado HD prototype has been spied testing wearing less camo than before. At first glance, it looks unchanged from the outgoing model, but we got information on what’s new under the cover. First of all, the manufacturer will refresh this model by adding a bulkier front fascia with new LED headlights and grille that should keep some patterns from the previous model. As you can see from the first spy shots, headlights are positioned much lower and fog lights.
Besides, Chevy will also change the side profile, adding more stylish wheels and tires. We expect it to be offered as a truck with a regular cab, double cab, and Crew cab. However, the most recent news revealed that the Chevrolet Silverado HD trucks would, for the first time, introduce an integrated Super Cruise driving technology, which is ideal for trailering. The package includes a Driver Attention System and precision LiDAR map data. As far as we know, the Driver Attention System is connected to a small camera that’s located on the top of the steering, and it works with infrared lights. This system will determine where the driver is looking when the Super Cruise is activated, making driving much easier and focusing the driver on the road ahead.
Cabin With New Infotainment
The forthcoming 2023 Chevy Silverado HD will look more modern than before. Actually, the new model will gain almost the same treatment as the half-ton Silverado 1500. Therefore, we expect it to introduce more quality materials and plenty of new technology. The same seating layout will remain, and you don’t need to worry about comfort at all.
This truck offers very supportive seats, providing excellent comfort even on longer trips. As standard, the manufacture will reportedly add a new infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, two USB ports, AM/FM radio, and a 2-speaker audio setup. Of course, optionally, there will be plenty of amenities to choose. You can basically add a multi-color 15-inch diagonal Head-Up Display, navigation, and available active safety alerts onto your windshield.
As for safety, the new truck will also introduce more driver aids. According to Chevy, the list will be much longer than before. Basically, it will include front/side/head curtain airbags, trailer sway control, anti-lock brakes, stability control, and much more.
2023 Chevy Silverado HD Engine Specs
The rumor claims that the new 2023 Chevy Silverado will use more powerful Duramax diesel. It will come with a V8 engine that will produce 505 horsepower (377 kilowatts) and 1,085 pound-feet (1,471 Newton-meters). Compared to the current model, this is a significant boost. The manufacturer will likely add the same engine under the hood of the GMC Sierra HD. Both models will be at the top of the pack in terms of overall power if that happens.
The upcoming Chevy HD is a winner compared to the Ford Super Duty model that produces 475 hp (354 kW) from its 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8. However, Ram also offers a potent 6.7-liter Cummins I6 with 1,075 pound-feet (1,457 Nm) of twist.
When the 2023 Chevy Silverado HD Will Debut?
According to Chevy, we can expect the 2023 Silverado HD to hit markets next year. If we can rely on previous releases, the new truck will likely be available to purchase before summer.
Anyway, the price will probably significantly increase because of the use of more quality materials and techs. Also, we expect it to come with a more powerful engine that will produce 505 horsepower and 1,085 pound-feet of torque.
