Earlier in the month, General Motors finally pulled the sheets on the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV, introducing a fresh all-electric version of the popular pickup nameplate. Now, we want to know – is it hot, or not?
Let’s start with the basics. The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV breaks from its internal-combustion counterpart with all-new styling that emphasizes aerodynamic efficiency, including a smoother, blocked-off front fascia.
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will be offered in two trim levels at launch, including the well-appointed RST First Edition, as well as the fleet-oriented WT trim. The RST First Edition offers a wealth in interesting features, including four-wheel steering, Automatic Adaptive Air Suspension, the Multi-Flex Midgate, the optional Multi-Flex tailgate, and a 17-inch-diagonal LCD freeform infotainment screen paired with an 11-inch-diagonal driver instrument display, not to mention GM’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous drive system with trailering.
Estimated range per charge is set at 400 miles for both the RST and WT trim levels, and both trims include standard DC quick-charge capabilities up to 350 kW. Under the skin, the Chevy Silverado EV incorporates GM’s Ultium battery and Ultium drive motor technology. Output reaches the pavement through front and rear motors as part of the onboard e4WD system.
The RST First Edition pumps out 664 horsepower and over 780 pound-feet of torque with the available Wide Open Watts Mode enabled, yielding a sprint to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds. Capability includes up to 10,000 pounds of maximum trailering and up to 1,300 pounds of payload.
Meanwhile, the WT produces 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque, and offers 8,000 pounds of towing and 1,200 pounds of payload. Add in the forthcoming max tow package, and you get up to 20,000 pounds of max trailering.
