Here’s The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Trail Boss41
General Motors just pulled the sheets on the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV in conjunction with CES 2022, unveiling a fully electrified variant of the popular pickup truck nameplate. The new Chevy Silverado EV was shown extensively in two trim levels, including the fleet-oriented WT and the well-equipped RST, but the automaker also released one image of the upcoming 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Trail Boss.
Official details on the upcoming 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Trail Boss are still forthcoming, but even so, there are still a few things we can point out with the singular image. For starters, the Chevy Silverado EV Trail Boss appears to have a matte black front fascia treatment similar to that of the Silverado EV WT, but with a design like that of the Silverado EV RST, including a gray lower bit for the bumper. We also spot a set of red tow hooks, as is tradition for the Trail Boss, plus a taller overall stance. The vehicle featured in the image also doesn’t have any Trail Boss badging, at least visible from this angle.
Under the matte-black fender liners, we see multi-spoke wheels with a black finish and wrapped in chunky off-roading tires. It’s also possible the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Trail Boss may incorporate off-roading technology plucked from the GMC Hummer EV, such as CrabWalk mode.
General Motors has stated that it will launch the new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Trail Boss following the launch of the Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition and WT models. As such, it’s possible we’ll see the battery-driven Trail Boss around the fall of 2023.
As a reminder, the new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is offered exclusively in a Crew Cab body style with a 5-foot, 11-inch bed. Providing the motivation is General Motors’ Ultium battery technology and Ultium drive motor technology, with an estimated max range of 400 miles. As for that latter spec, we would expect max range on the upcoming 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Trail Boss to be hampered by things like the taller ride height and chunky running gear.

Doesn’t look like a Trail Boss to me! The electric aspect makes it seem less off roady. What will the electric ZR2 Silverado look like?
Needs a bigger screen!
It’s a truck not a Ferrari. I swear you Boomers claimed looks weren’t everything with the ICE vehicles and just wanted a dependable truck that performs. Now that it’s an EV that looks modernized and designed for range, it’s somehow weak looking regardless of its performance…..
it out performs some ferrari’s. bad reference, just sayin…
The red rendering they dropped a few months ago would’ve been the best route to take the design. The Silverado looks too soft
Like this, max range will be 240 miles, or 300 at most. This has the aerodynamics of the hummer EV with knobbier tires, heck the hummer EV tire pattern isn’t a true all terrain pattern. It’s an allsport with side lugs to maximize range and look cool.
That said, I kinda wish they would make a Silverado max range concept. Put the 2.7 turbo + eboost mated to a 10 speed with the Silverado EV tires and see what kind of economy you could get. I bet it might encroach that of the duramax.
This will be well over 300 mile range and maybe 400 by intro.
Aero on trails mean nothing so they should do well as they will not idle like trucks sitting on the trail. They will only use power if moving.
As for adding an engine to a EV. Just buy the ICE version. Cheaper and less complicated. Want more range buy a Pepsi and fill up.
If you are going to do this go EV or ICE as Hybrids are like cross dressers complicated and not much interest to the rest of us.
I’ve been using a volt for 4 years. I fill the tank 2-3 times a year, comes to less than $30 per tank. Hell in my case I don’t even pay for the electricity in the place I moved into 2 years ago.
Plug in hybrids are not a solution, but they are still handy for those of us that are ready to move in from ICE for our daily drivers but can get away not driving more than 50 miles most days, but need it on other days.
Not everything is all out nothing.
The tax payer says you are welcome for your free electricity.
Yep me too. But want to move on to a full EV with 300 to 350 range and more so quick charge of 100miles in 10 minutes as they elude too. Then its all I need to satisfy the few out of town trips with short stops. One other feature..heating…they need to get to mini heat pumps at least for those of us in NE and colder climate whether though so far I can wing it with the electric heats and steering sufficiently…but then those complaining passengers!
Dave not everyone gets free electric. And that gas tank must be stale.
Here is the reality. The coming regulations and emissions are only getting tighter and even hybrids are not going to be enough.
Then add the ever tougher regulations for emissions to an ICE engine and it just adds to the cost. Mfgs are now just getting to where it will be cheaper to do a full EV.
Finally most EV models will go 400 miles. You can add 100 more in 10 min. Few people drive more than that regularly. So we are to the point the average person can live with an EV and with more models coming there will be one to fit most needs.
The Volt was needed with the shorter ranges a few years ago but that is past.
The Voltec system was a damn good solution to me. I’d still go for a skateboard design 1.3l Turbo next gen Volt.
I would have liked to see the 1.6 whisper Diesel engine in the Gen 2 Volt! My Cruze diesel lifetime average is 45.2 mpg. A Volt would probably love the diesel. The problem lies with water in the fuel tank and most Volts sit with 1/2 tank for extended periods of time, so condensation could become an issue. Oh well, GM’s all or nothing approach will probably bite them in the backside sooner or later. Voltec was great technology, and would have been perfect for vehicles like the Equinox or Blazer and all their GM “cousins” or maybe even a plug-in hybrid Silverado that could use EV in the city & short trips, gas for hauling/towing and long trips.
Logan I guess it can’t be “off roady” without a gas guzzling burbling V8! I can’t believe you people even if the EV truck outperforms the ICE off-road you still knock it and put it down! Some people will never ever be satisfied.
He doesn’t pay for the electricity … but his monthly rent is $150 more than a comparable place that pays for their electricity … lol
Why isn’t the front clip body colored? That gray front end makes it look like a cheap work truck, not a mainstream version of the vehicle.
Cause you idiots thought the whole blacked out look was off roady, black bumpers, grille, wheels, trim, etc. It looks silly and is played out, but everyone wanted that so look what you get… It does look terrible, but I am happy most the wanna be yuppies who only buy for looks and never use it will look silly running around in a truck they think is tough looking.
Hehehe! Needs an off-road screen that is mud proof and can be hosed off!
Yup this is a fail without a bigger screen or off-road screen.
A body colored grill would go a long way in making this look good.
Comment 1: I know no one that has bought a truck just to go trail riding. That said, good to see GM coming out with their answer to Rivian.
Comment 2: Question: Who can tell me how the range is determined?
General Motors is still putting round pegs ( tires ) in a square hole ( wheel well ). This is precisely the reason my last three trucks have been Ford’s and not Silverados. I can easily throw 35’s and 37’s on any F150- F250- F350.
You must not have actually looked at the current Silverado then.
Regarding the recent traffic disaster in Virginia, I wonder what the survivability would have been in EVs of varying charges?
To be honest the WT and RST look much better then the trail boss… The clean lines of the RST and body colored bumper make it look less a giant Tonka Toy Truck in my opinion. I can’t wait to see what the GMC SIERRA EV looks like… It will probably look better! 👌👍
I agree. The black front of the Trail Boss goes too far here by using cheap plastic. I don’t like the painted black front end that they currently do, but at least that doesn’t look AS cheap. I’d take the RST body style/paint matching, with less cartoonishly large wheels and skip the Trail Boss I think. Or save a bunch of money, get the WT and swap the upper portion of the bumper and frunk lid to a smooth paint matched one. Replace the steel wheels with nicer aluminum wheels and you would have a better looking Trail Boss at a fraction of the cost.
As for the Sierra looking better, I guess we will see, but the teaser didn’t look great to me. I know looks are subjective. I guess it’s good to have options.
Like many I also think the unfinished black front end looks cheap. IMO all they need to do to make the front look 110% better is leave the bumper as is but body-color the upper front clip like the RST, then make the center frunk section below the bow-tie look like an actual black grille. For those wanting a more polished look make the RST black finish optional on the bumper and flares.
When I go off-roading around Moab, I’ll be sure to tote a very long extension cord.
Funny thing … there are already 2 available ChargePoint chargers IN the town of Moab. If you were to leave town fully charged, I’m sure you’d have enough range to do plenty of off-reading. Tesla might even put a supercharger station for all the cyber trucks that aren’t out yet.
Why would they choose the Avalanche. It’s ugly, the plastic is cheesy. Even Honda abandoned that sorry side profile on their pickup (if you can call what Honda makes a pickup).
Chevy is in desperate need of new blood in their design team.
I’m sure this sack of 💩 will be easy to charge at the non existent charging stations along the trail
Just like you fill up your gasoline truck at all of those service stations out along the trail🤦♂️
It shouldn’t take a genius to realize that you can, and people often do, bring a can of gas out on the trail.
Lol, as much as gas stations on the trail…
Usually we bring 5-gallon gas cans with gas already in them. Try that with batteries 🙄 Dumba$$ EVtards
Wow, drinking gasoline must make you temperamental. As with anything else don’t like it, don’t buy it…..
Jerry oh Jerry… This is not an avalanche GM didn’t even use the name avalanche. Also this truck had no grey plastic around the wheel wells that’s so 1990’s… it’s black whatever material they are using on trucks. Can’t you just like it for what it is. And if you don’t like it then don’t buy it.
Why not produce a ev truck that is a truck at a price for the average American?
