General Motors unveiled the all-new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV earlier this month in conjunction with the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show, electrifying the popular pickup nameplate and generating a good deal of hype in the process. However, the new Silverado EV isn’t GM’s first production all-electric pickup truck – that honor belongs to the GMC Hummer EV. As such, we’re putting both vehicles side by side in the following GM Authority spec comparison.
Before we launch into this, it’s worth noting that GM has yet to release the full spec sheet for the Chevy Silverado EV. That said, we do have a handful of numbers for the Silverado EV RST First Edition and WT models, which makes for a good comparison against the range-topping 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1.
Let’s start with the powertrain. Although all three models in his comparison utilize GM’s Ultium battery and Ultium motor technologies, output specs differ greatly, with the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition producing 664 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque, as compared to the 1,000-horsepower GMC Hummer EV Edition 1. Meanwhile, the Silverado EV WT produces 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque.
Put it all down, and the he 2024 Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. The Hummer is quicker here, hitting the benchmark in about 3 seconds, while acceleration numbers for the Silverado EV WT have yet to be revealed.
Towing capacity and payload are also critical, with the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition offering a tow capacity of 10,000 pounds and a payload up to 1,300 pounds, as compared to the 7,500-pound towing capacity and 1,300-pound payload in the GMC Hummer EV. The Silverado EV WT is rated with a 20,000-pound towing capacity and 1,200-pound payload.
Naturally, as electric vehicles, driving range is another important factor to consider. The Silverado models are the winners in this respect, with both boasting 400 miles between plugs, as opposed to the 329-miles range in the GMC Hummer EV.
