Making its big debut early in 2022, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV all-electric pickup promises all of the practicality and capability as its ICE-powered equivalent. Naturally, that includes towing and hauling, the bread and butter of any pickup. Now, GM is announcing that the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV Work Truck offers higher towing and payload capacities than what was originally revealed in 2022.
According to GM, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV 4WT boasts a maximum tow rating of 10,000 pounds, as well as a maximum payload rating of 1,400 pounds. Both figures are significantly higher than what was originally announced, with GM previously advertising a maximum tow rating of 8,000 pounds and a maximum payload rating of 1,200 pounds.
Critically, fleet buyers looking to use the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV for serious towing duties will want to check out the fleet-only max trailering package, which increases the all-electric pickup’s towing capacity to 20,000 pounds. Specifics on the package are still forthcoming. Meanwhile, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition will offer a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds and a payload capacity of 1,300 pounds, per the truck’s initial debut in at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show.
As GM Authority covered in May, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV 4WT will deliver an estimated 450 miles of range from a full charge, as announced previously by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This figure also exceeds GM’s initial estimates. The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV 4WT is the first model produced under the new Chevy Silverado EV line, and features a 24-module battery pack motivating two electric motors, one of which drives the front axle, the other of which drives the rear axle. The 3WT will follow the 4WT to the market with a 20-module battery pack and a slightly lower driving range.
