General Motors is gearing up to release an electrified variant of the popular Chevy Silverado 1500 full-size pickup. Among the new features expected to debut with the upcoming Chevy Silverado electric is a huge infotainment screen for the cabin.
As GM Authority covered earlier this month, General Motors will unveil the new Chevy Silverado electric at the Consumer Electronics Show on Wednesday, January 5th, 2022. Confirmation of the model’s debut at CES 2022 coincided with the announcement that the pickup would come equipped with an available segment-leading fixed-glass roof on retail models, offering greater visibility, headroom, and an enhanced sense of spaciousness to the cabin.
The announcement also included teasers showing the new Chevy Silverado electric from above, giving us a glimpse of the new fixed-glass roof. Critically, the teaser also reveals a huge digital infotainment screen.
The new Chevy Silverado electric’s infotainment screen appears to be extended out towards the driver, with wide, horizontally oriented positioning, as well as possibly a curved screen surface. It’s possible that the curved panel could house both the infotainment system display, as well as the driver instrument panel, similar to the infotainment layout offered by the latest fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade, introduced for the 2021 model year.
Additional features expected to debut with the Chevy Silverado electric include the confirmed availability of a four-wheel steering system, which enables the vehicle to be turn all four wheels at the same time for added agility and a tighter turning radius at low vehicle speeds, plus improved handling and stability at higher speeds. Additionally, the four-wheel steering system will provide enhanced trailering dynamics.
As for the powertrain specs, the Chevy Silverado electric will offer customers an estimated range of more than 400 miles with a full battery charge. Under the skin, the battery-driven pickup truck will run GM’s Ultium battery technology and Ultium drive technology.
