This Is The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV185
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV has made its official debut at CES 2022, arriving in both well-equipped RST First Edition and fleet-focused WT trim levels.
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV was engineered from the ground up to be an EV only. Rather than utilizing the automaker’s T1 truck platform, the Silverado EV utilizes a dedicated Ultium BEV platform that leverages the available 24-module Ultium battery pack as a fundamental part of the vehicle’s structure. This battery pack will provide enough juice for a GM-estimated 400 miles of driving range in both the RST First Edition and WT trim levels. This platform also utilizes independent front and rear suspension, with RST First Edition models featuring GM’s Adaptive Air Ride suspension as standard, as well four-wheel-steering for improved maneuverability.
Power in the RST First Edition trim level comes from a dual-motor e4WD system, which is rated at 664 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque in the available Wide Open Watts Mode. This will enable the pickup to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds. The WT, meanwhile, will feature a less powerful version of the dual-motor setup rated at 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque. The fleet-focused trim level will also offer 8,000 pounds of towing and 1,200 pounds of payload “to meet the needs of organizations with sustainable transportation goals,” Chevy says.
Both the RST First Edition and the WT trim levels will feature public DC fast charging capabilities of up to 350kW, enabling the truck to add 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes, based on GM estimates. The Silverado EV will also offer an onboard PowerBase charging system with up to 10 outlets, providing up to 10.2 kW of energy for worksite or recreational needs. The truck can also power a home in the event of a power outage, similar to the Ford F-150 Lightning, and is capable of charging another EV with the available accessory power cord.
The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will be offered in Crew Cab body style only across both RST First Edition and WT trim levels, incorporating a 5 foot, 11 inch bed. On the RST, the usable bed space is maximized with the available Multi-Flex Midgate, growing it to over 9 feet of storage room. The new midgate can also be combined with GM’s Multi-Flex Tailgate, growing the usable bed space to 10 feet, 10 inches. A lockable, weatherproof bed tonneau cover will also be offered at launch. As previously confirmed, the RST First Edition will come standard with large 24-inch alloy wheels, as well.
A new eTrunk will be present on the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV, which is described as a lockable, weatherproof compartment in the front of the vehicle that provides enough space to fit a large hardside suitcase. The RST First Edition also integrates a full fixed glass roof, giving the cabin a more open, spacious look and feel.
All RST First Edition models will come loaded with the latest technologies, including a large 17-inch diagonal LCD freeform infotainment screen, 11-inch diagonal driver instrument display and a new head-up display with a field of view of over 14 inches. The latest version of the automaker’s Super Cruise hands-free driving system with trailering capability will also come standard on RST First Edition models.
The WT trim level will be the first to arrive in spring 2023, boasting a GM-estimated driving range of over 400 miles. This version of the truck will feature the largest battery available, with cheaper versions of the WT set to arrive at a later date with a starting price of $39,900 before destination and freight charges. The fully-loaded RST First Edition will launch in the fall of 2023, with prices starting at $105,000 not including DFC. Chevy says that after production ramps up, it will “unleash the full Silverado EV portfolio,” including a Trail Boss variant and other models occupying the $50,000, $60,000, $70,000 and $80,000 price ranges.
Reservations for the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV will open at 1 p.m. EST on January 5th, 2022 via Chevrolet.com.

THE MIDGATE RETURNS!
105k, are you freaking nuts?
If you got the money go for it, but for me I am going to wait for the $40K to $50K model and by then more charging stations will pop up.
Lightning has a lot less features and range. Can’t compare apples to oranges and expect the same price ceiling. Lets use some logic, pal.
Lol use logic he says. If we’re using logic then that petty range does not justify these price tags.
It does when looking at the EV truck segment and content at that price
Ford tops out at 90k, what idiot at gm priced this truck at 105k? Good luck selling these! The only thing gm is good at is overpriced vehicles.
The Ford lighting top out at $97k with less range, no 4 wheel steering, slower charging, no mid gate expansion, etc.
But the lightning actually looks like a truck.
So we know who doesn’t need a truck and only buys for the image. Who cares, does it do what you need it to do and do it better? Than looks should be the last thing…
Drug dealers can afford this, and they’ll appreciate the Avalanche Revival look.
Hey Commie, what’s wrong with make making money? Don’t you know that’s business?
Here in ‘Merica we are capitalists and we will charge whatever price, and government ain’t gonna stop us.
Can’t afford it? Get a better job, or go to commie Venezuela…
They sold out on the Hummer EV Pre Orders and now those trucks are set for delivery, there will be a customer base for the Silverado RST and yes those people will also have the finances to reserve one, I suspect by 2025 at the latest; as the Automakers in general begin to get closer towards 2030, we’ll see significant price drops and more Logistical Support for Charging Units.
If that’s how you feel why waste your time on a GM forum?
Its not for standard chevy buyers, this is to replace your BMW
I live in the country (Rural). I’d love it as an 5.3 liter.and I would be in the market for new truck in a few years; but EV NO WAY!!!!!!
So do I. And I’ll be looking for a BEV Truck in a few years too to replace my then, expired 2019 Trax. By then, infrastructure will be a little better than now, BEV truck range will be 300 to 400 miles “to the tank”, the choices to had will be real (it’s somewhat educated conjecture now) which means every BEV won’t be the unaffordable top-of-the-line version. Your 5.3L MIGHT get to 250 miles with no load employing every hyper-miling trick in the book, there’s NO WAY your 5.3 will EVER get to 400 miles of range.
So an electric Avalanche…
Don’t you mean an EValanche?
The inner city will be thrilled!
and you can bet will the the subject of many a carjacking
Missed naming opportunity if I have ever seen one!
I’m getting sick of these rape the customer 1st edition model prices. If gm can’t sell these at a reasonable price, they oughta get out of making cars and trucks.
Good news for you. Chevy has the spark EV. If that’s not in your budget, get a job!
The spark? Lol really just get a golf cart instead.
The Spark EV was discontinued years ago.
My Gm stock increased yesterday 🙏
In which market??? Down $3 on the NYSE. Go back to sleep.
So did mine, only to fall as Mary started speaking.
Don’t you know that anything supposedly better for the environment or you, is supposed to be overpriced, so as to not benefit the consumer.
The fun fact is the ev better for environment while it’s running when those batteries die and they will they are worse than the gas for environment so in all reality the electric is worse for the environment than a gas truck and gonna cost way more to fix better have a nice wallet when haveing one
Wrong, EV batteries are over 90% recyclable, so they are extremely good for the environment. They’re expensive now due to economy of scale. The cost to replace an EV battery is roughly $5000, not far from the cost to replace an engine. Any other wrong information you’d like to share?
Maybe by the time the battery needs replacing in 2032 5k MIGHT be realistic, but you aren’t even replacing a Bolt battery today for 5k.
If you have a Bolt battery that needs replacement now, you’re likely not paying a dime, as it would be covered under warranty.
GM Marketing Person talk. Where is it being done today? Please share company info. Is there a positive business case for recycling? Or will it end up like the 100% recyclable plastic that often ends up in a landfill because the recycling business case is negative.
Redwood Materials is just one of several. And they’ve partnered with Ford and Volvo. Tell me again that you don’t know what you’re talking about.
Typical GM Marketing speak. You have been working from home to long and can only talk in generalities, not facts. Get out of your sweats and get outdoors for fresh air. Why hasn’t GM partnered with Redwood??? And how will batteries from New York get to Nevada and California to be recycled.
EV’s are a gamble!
“What is clear is that electrification is a technology chosen by politicians, not by industry,” he said in a joint interview with France’s Les Echos, Handelsblatt, Corriere della Sera and El Mundo.
Sorry, I have a job that keeps me moving (not in the auto industry, and not working from home), so your intended insult is DOA. I gave you just one example. Are you so stupid to think they’re the only options? As for infrastructure, it’s being built up, just like the fossil fuel infrastructure had to be. Gas stations didn’t suddenly pop up out of nowhere.
Hoold on there, Baba-Louie! Just wait until the affordable models come out…
Totally blows the Ford away.
Taste is an individual thing but this looks great.
They are NOT f’ing around.
Agreed. Looks way too much like a honda ridgeline, which isn’t a truck…it’s an ugly SUV with a bed.
It’s a rough sketch of an electric avalanche. It looks way too “city” and will likely have no appeal to gas and diesel Silverado owners. Myself included. I’m sticking with my high country 6.2.
And this will smoke your 6.2 in a race.
Actually, competitively set up,,,, no it will not. the 6.2 silverado editions almost all are a Z71 or trailboss. If you set them up the same, with a RST short bed 4×4, with the 6.2, and add sport wheels, which the EV has, the 6.2 will match or exceed the EV with a low 4 0-60
Um, the 6.2 has an official 0-60 of 5.4 seconds. If it was over a second quicker, as you claim, you can be damn sure that GM would have advertised it.
Exactly. A supercharged 6.2 Silverado with 600hp hits it in 4.5 second. Not happening with this RST 4×4 he claims.
It’s a lot harder going from 5.5 to 4.5 seconds than it is 10.5 to 9.5. Even the TrailBoss with lift and AT rubber will likely do high 5 second runs
Exactly get out of the way beta males the new ev bro-dozer is here. I can’t wait to get one of these and put some stupid huge lift kit on it and big ugly rims and tires can’t forget the huge pair of nuts swinging from the back end I’ll be the coolest person ever in this.
@jake haha wrong. So wrong. So so wrong.
Lol good grief who cares about racing a pickup truck
@ GM fan, there are a lot of truck buyers, for whatever reason, care about how fast their truck is. I never said it was the only metric that matters, and to be honest, the 0-60 time of a truck shouldn’t matter, yet it does for a lot of people. A lot of them also have the 6.2.
I’m emailing the gm marketing team now to let them know they should definitely promote that I’m sure that will be a huge selling point that it’s faster in a race then the 6.2 I’ll let you know what they say back to me.
I heard back from gm marketing team. They laughed in the email and said get a life nobody cares about racing trucks.
You didn’t hear back because you’re just a troll. They also wouldn’t say that, otherwise they wouldn’t be racing in the NASCAR Truck Series: Nice try, troll.
Right I’m a troll because nobody is going to care about this being faster then a 6.2 I’m sure you are a marketing genius it’s a real shame they aren’t going to put that figure on billboards nationwide to get people excited for this. I can tell you got your feelings hurt because you were real happy about posting how it’s so much faster only for nobody to care except you.
It’s a base metric to know how well it will accelerate. 0-60 while towing x-amount is of similar importance. Same with 30-60mph.
I don’t remember reading any ads for loaded up pickup trucks and 0-60 times or 30-60 times.
This is not for gas and diesel owners. for a different audience that may or may not buy it. Superior to any other electric truck as it is purpose se built from ground up….
Haha, calling the others city when you drive the box checker version on big wheels. Pot meet kettle. Guys who need and use a truck aren’t buying the luxury car version, this truck is exactly down your ally.
This Diesel Silverado owner (2500 and 3500 dually currently) reserved one yesterday, so I would not make assumptions on it’s appeal.
I can’t wait to have the EV Silverado join my other Silverado’s. Neat features, impressive range, distinctive good looks. Full torque at zero RPM. I am in.
Was it a guy why used the duelly for work or as a bro dozer? I see lots of people driving duellys to Walmart that never see a trailer or a bed full of cinder blocks.
You’re funny. I tow a 31′ box trailer with my dually, or a 23′ flat trailer with everything from tractors, cars, snowmobiles, ATV’s or 2 tons of wood pellets or building materials in the box as needed.
My 2500 is my commuter, errand truck. Still hauls a bit but the dually tows with a lot more confidence, especially in cross winds. Plus, after 300,000 is deserves a break.
And besides, what I do with MY dually is none of your business. I think I will take it grocery shipping just to annoy you yuppies and show it does fit it one parking spot.
You need to get an E V that charges it’s self going down the road
Then you will have something that I wouldn’t mind owning.
Needs a bigger screen!
windscreen or tv screen? it already has an impressive greel.
Nice job GM. I love that the Drop Down Midgate returns.
I will need to see more interior images but looks kind of plain (which I do not mind)
Death of the V8 because of Government Bureaucrats… F’ Sad.
V8s aren’t going anywhere. This is just an additional model.
chevy has all but confirmed a new V8 will be coming in 2025. They have publicly announced that the 2025 fleet “will debut new engines and will be 15% more fuel efficent.”
that leaves lots to speculation but given that they have not given plans to update the 2.7 nor 3.0 duramax, that means the newer engines will probably be almost 20-25% more efficent.
as for what this engine is, it undoubtably will feature new tech. GM filed a patent 2 years ago, detailing a high compression ration engine that will be quote “possible in I4, I6 and V8 configurations.” the engine will feature a supercharger and intercooler and will charge the air, cool it, and then run a miller cylce at a compression ratio of 15.5:1.
it is possible that the 5.3L L84 can be cheaply and quickly modified to this to return 27MPG and over 400 HP.
it is also possible that a new block with offset bores and a DOCH configuration similar to the LT6 could be employed, but is unlikely.
You live on a different planet bud.
Many things are possible, but government mandates and doing almost everything possible to make combustion engines extinct, rather than more efficient with complementary power, is the answer so called do goodies currently in power. Just sit down and give serious thought about our current situation with COVID-19 and why you never hardly hear of people dying by heart attack, flu or much of anything else.
Yet GM can’t seriously think these people will still be in power in even 11 months do they???
Nope. Other than its specs and capabilities, I am quite unimpressed. This thing looks horrible. The Ford Lightning while not as capable, still kicks this thing.
no it doesn’t lol
GM’s hired a call center in the Philippines to down vote every negative comment about this one hundred thousand dollar monstrosity. Sorry GM, your design team should’ve made a car that’s less ugly.
So what version of the F-150 Lightning has a 400 mile range?
Which 400 mi range silverado will be available for sale at the same time as the F150?
This EV truck shouldn’t be called a Silverado but something else. Wasnt expecting a Chevrolet Hummer variant that costs over a $100,000. GM’s misreading the market, again. I am not too sure most current Silverado owners will buy this contraption.
They won’t. Only the speculators and EV cultists.
Fortunately their investment will blow up with higher interest rates.
Ha! EV cultists buy used bolts and Nissan leaves (leaf plural?)… Maybe we’re looking at this from the wrong angle. The Mustang Mach-E isn’t a mustang, but it looks kind of like a mustang and hauls ass. Unfortunately for the Silverado EV, it looks like an avalanche, not a silverado, and hauls little. The pass through is cool, until you haul a load of mulch, then you need to haul a load of lumber. That interior will be nasty in minutes unless the “truck” bed is dishwasher clean… And why design a car/truck around perennial failures a la Subaru Baja, Honda Ridgeline, Chevy Avalanche, Ford Explorer Sport-Trac? “You can haul as much as the Ford Maverick, for the price of five Ford Mavericks” -Mary Barra?
This Diesel Silverado owner reserved one yesterday, because I love the new EV version. It will work very well for a daily commuter and shorter hauling trips. It looks distinctive, has many unique and functional features and a value range from $40k to $105 leaving lots of room for many budgets.
There has to be a “Ford Authority” for all you GM haters out there…
The base Pro. Ford’s 230 and 300 range estimates were with 1000 lbs of cargo. Ford is sand bagging, brilliant on their part.
In what way outside of a longer hood?
The damn thing is really a new Avalanche aka EValanche. GM has no courage, no fortitude, no vision, to give it its real and correct name. This thing is no SilvErado, it only has a passing resemblance to the Silverado series and is obviously a new Avalanche EV truck even bringing back the peculiar mid gate feature. A true SilvErado EV truck will look like its siblings with some EV features to tell it apart, and it would not cost 105K. But nah, GM does what it feels like with its marques, with no respect to its heritage.
I have a reservation for both. We shall see which one of either, I wind up with Right now, I am leaning toward the Chevy as it should have more towing range and we have a 7500 lb travel trailer
hate it, looks like a honda ridgeline
Yea they definitely missed the mark on this in my opinion I agree with you 100%
hope GMC Sierra doesn’t make this mistake
Me to. I looked at the build and price for the lighting this morning go check it out and see the huge price increase for extended range which only puts it at an estimated 300 miles. Fingers crossed the sierra is better then both of these
It will be far worse, picture BMW’s new kidney grilles, just much, much bigger. GM loves their chrome grille. And bigger, chromier wheels. Maybe you’ll even get a midnight edition, blacker than black!
It won’t but I can guarantee it will command a $5k premium over the volume models and $15k premium over Chevy. If you want an idea of what the truck will look like peep GMdesigncenter on Insta
You know the Ridgeline was a knockoff of the Avalanche, but stretched over a mini-van platform, right? Styling is subjective, but it works for me. Unique, still very Chevy like and looks like a truck.
Can’t wait for those certain people on here who claimed this would be a game changer.
The showing of the Equinox EV and this, yes the game has changed.
Lol you must do drugs.
Old saying and you prove it, when you can’t win an argument, resort to insults are change the subject. Look, you came here to be what you are. It isn’t working.
You haven’t proved a thing the equinox isn’t out and you didn’t say a word about how this is a game changer lol. Unless your name is actually Donavan who has all the secret inside Information then you are just claiming it’s a game changer because you said so.
So your goal for the day is to be contrary. Is that anything to be proud of?
So you have no way to explain how this is a game changer? Read my initial comment. And by the way you were not one of the people I was referring to.
The game in 2023? 2024? We’re playing now, not two years from now. The best GM has at the moment is an EV that is FWD only, and is officially as ugly as the Nissan Leaf. You’d have to be a progressive druggie from Berkeley, California to appreciate what GM is putting out. Compare this to the Tesla, Lucid, Rivian, Mach-E, Polestar… Which one would you rather drive? And most of those are actually available today. I’d even take the hyundai over any of GM’s future EV garbage. And my daily driver is a Volt!
All the languages in the world and you chose to speak facts.
HAHA! just realized! 2 more years!!!!! will this get pushed back to 2026????
Can you prove it’s two years out like the “beloved” CT?. GM did deliver the Hummer, Cruise taxi and Brightdrop”. Where’s Elon’s promises?.
Wow gm is so innovating what a time to be alive. Can’t wait to get my 9,000lb truck I’ll be the coolest guy ever. Only alpha males drive the hummer
But it’s at GMC dealers unlike CT that’s at Facebook uh Meta dealerships….
Elon’s promises? Like, one million EVs produced this year? The tesla might be ugly and weird, but you’ve gotta give the guy some credit. GM doesn’t have the same blind fan boy following that tesla has developed, so they can’t afford to continue making such strange cars like this one, while at the same time completely watering down classic names. Meanwhile Ford has gone the opposite direction and appears to be cleaning house. GM is putting short term profit ahead of long term brand loyalty and growth right now.
As said where’s the CT, Semi, FSD?. 1millon EVs woopty, GM been making millions of ICE for decades it’s gonna take a while that even if the market wants 10+ EVs per year. I’m not a Tesla Cult member on a GM site dare people to drink Kool Aid, meant test drive a Tesla. Ford is about to get their clocks cleaned because they only have Mach E/F 150 with no other things on the table since Rivivan pulled out the Lincoln model development.
Which dealership??? You can’t get one unless you are LeBron James or Michael Jordan. Not in volume production yet.
I guess, the main point is the GMC is on the road and the CT is on virtual reality..
Changed the game how?
They’re here. they’ve been down-voting you all morning! not sure this car/truck crossover is gonna change the game though. Is it competition for the cybertruck? At least like 80’s fashion the cybertruck is ugly and makes a statement. This is just ugly.
Where in the world is the Celestiq? Guess they are delaying the reveal yet again?
They just announced that it will be shown early this year. I would assume NY auto show.
Thank you 91fairladyz, but I wouldn’t consider NY auto show to be early in the year necessarily, it’s not until April. Was really hoping they meant this CES show. Also with the non stop variants, wouldn’t be surprised if the NY auto show is cancelled again for the third time in a row
It got stolen by Da’Shandra.
Nope Roscoe and Jimbo stole it first fur der 6 of Jan anniversary. Them boys are planning some’m….
No… they stol’ the dodge thats gotta cummins…
Is this the gm and Honda collab?
It was a joke because it’s looks like the ridgeline.
That will be the upcoming Blazer EV most likely
Sooo……an electric Avalanche.
Looks good, hopefully it will be high quality, fewer parts to assemble, keep it priced low… a bargain I will put money down if it goes 425 miles per charge… I’m in
Looks like the same person who designed the 2022 Buick Enclave front end also designed this. In the Silverado EV’s case, it looks like two different style grilles were sandwiched on top of each other.
105000. Yeah I’m totally out I can burn a lot of gas in a 6.2 and still be money ahead
Like most products these days, they start with the most ridiculous trims first. Eventually a mainstream $50k model will get here. I don’t think they’ll have any trouble selling the first ones despite the six figure price tag though.
there will be no mainstream 50K model. If you look at the ford lighting, adding basic 101 options jumps the price up really fast. getting a lighting in the XLT trim with the basics will run you over 70K easy. the “mainstream” of this EV will be 80K.
I’m only interested in the midgate, can it be an option in the real trucks?
I dig it, but not $105K dig it. The TrailBoss version interests me, but it won’t be out until 2024. I just can’t wait that long.
Base model is $39,900
But what are the specs on the base WT, and when will it actually be produced?
I honestly prefer the design of the F150 Lightning over this, especially considering the frontend and backend.
This whole fad can not blow up fast enough.
Come on higher interest rates.
My reservation is placed. Hopefully can push my order out until the TrailBoss is available.
Awesome Job, GM. This is going to change the way we look at trucks. Game changer 🔥
No it’s not.
Your false hope is noted though.
Agree Justin. Ignore the short sighted haters. I reserved one yesterday and looking forward to having such a capable, practical and useful EV in my driveway.
I am already pricing out solar and wind power for the house so the haters can STFU about where the power comes from. Like being sustainable is a bad idea…SMH…
