The current generation of Chevy’s full-size pickup is getting constant updates. After the last year’s interior redesign, the 2023 model came with notable engine upgrades, particularly in terms of the diesel version. So, many of us expect to see novelties for the 2024 model year as well. At this point, the details are still unavailable, but some unofficial reports suggest we could see a version with the famous SS badge. That would be a high-performance version of the pickup, which would arrive sometime in the next year, as the 2024 Chevy Silverado SS, according to rumors.
As we’ve just mentioned, this is still just a rumor and it is still early to talk about details. Still, we presume that the focus will be on improved on-road performance, which isn’t the case with the competition. Allegedly, Chevy is working on making its own niche, which would be able to attract a pretty specific group of buyers.
In any case, keep in mind that the following paragraphs are based on rumors and speculations, so make sure to stay reserved.
2024 Chevy Silverado SS Design
As we’ve just mentioned, rivals like Ford and Ram started a real war when it comes to high-performance off-road versions. Each company is trying to make a more powerful pickup, with better off-road performance. Chevy won’t enter this batter, according to the latest reports. Instead, it will design a street performer. That model would come as the 2024 Chevy Silverado SS and would come with a substantially different design approach.
Of course, one of the main differences will be in terms of the chassis and suspension setup. This pickup would come with a much stiffer setup than the base version, with street performance components. Furthermore, we expect to see lower ground clearance, which would provide a lower center of gravity and ensure better handling.
Exterior and Interior Design
Naturally, we also expect to see some upgrades regarding styling. Simply, we expect to see the 2024 Chevy Silverado SS with aesthetics that accentuate its performance character. Besides the famous “SS” badges, we also expect to see upgrades in terms of a more aggressive front-end design, with a different grille, bumper etc. Of course, we also expect to see unique wheels and lower-profile tires, as well as some exclusive color options.
On the other hand, we don’t expect significant changes regarding interior design. Simply, the cabin has been completely redesigned last year and it looks extremely well. So, the best thing we could see are unique color schemes, some contrast stitching, a few materials upgrades and similar things. The overall layout should remain the same.
2024 Chevy Silverado SS Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, we could say this is the aspect where we expect the biggest upgrades. Currently, the most powerful Silverado comes with a good-old 6.2-liter V8, which puts out around 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The 2024 Chevy Silverado SS would need way more power to be considered a high-performance pickup by today’s standards.
Therefore, we presume that the choice would be a supercharged version of this engine, which already powers a couple of high-performance cars, including the Chevy Camaro and Chevy Corvette. The max output would probably go around 650 horsepower, which would be enough for excellent performance in all aspects. Of course, the engine would come coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2024 Chevy Silverado SS Release Date and Price
If we can trust rumors, the 2024 Chevy Silverado SS could arrive already in the next year. We estimate that the price would roughly go around 75.000 dollars. Although with a completely different design approach, this model would still have off-road performers as key rivals, particularly models like Ford F-150 Raptor R and Ram TRX.
