General Motors pulled the sheets on the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, revealing an all-new, all-electric variant of the popular pickup nameplate. Now, GM Authority has learned that the Chevy Silverado EV’s Max Towing Package will feature four-wheel steering.
During an interview with GM Authority Executive Editor Alex Luft, Chevy Silverado EV chief engineer Nichole Kraatz confirmed the Chevy Silverado EV WT’s 20,000-pound Max Towing Package will include the four-wheel steering feature.
The Chevy Silverado EV WT will be the first Silverado EV trim level out the gates, launching in the spring of the 2023 calendar year. The fleet-oriented WT trim level will feature an all-electric powertrain capable of producing as much as 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque, leveraging GM’s Ultium battery and Ultium drive motor technology. The WT will have a tow rating of 8,000 pounds, while payload will be 1,200 pounds.
After the initial launch, Chevy will introduce a Silverado EV fleet model capable of trailering 20,000 pounds with the upcoming max tow package. What’s more, the max towing package will feature four-wheel steering, as GM Authority has confirmed.
In addition to the WT trim level, Chevy is also launching the Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition, which will feature a dual-motor e4WD system capable of producing 664 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque with the available Wide Open Watts Mode, propelling the pickup from a standstill to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds.
Both the Silverado EV WT and Silverado EV RST First Edition will come equipped with DC fast charging capabilities of up to 350kW. Range per charge for both vehicles is estimated at 400 miles. Under the skin, the Chevy Silverado EV rides on the GM BT1 platform. Production will begin at the GM Factory Zero plant next year.
