The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV officially dropped cover in January of 2022, introducing a brand-new, all-electric variant for the popular pickup. Naturally, the Chevy Silverado EV will draw comparisons to the ICE-based Chevy Silverado 1500. Now, we’re doing exactly that, checking out the exterior and interior dimensions for both models in the following GM Authority Dimensional Comparison.
To note, this comparison will focus on two trim levels for the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV, specifically, the fleet-oriented WT (Work Truck) and well-equipped RST. These two trims are the first out the gates with regard to the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV launch cadence, with additional trims poised to arrive later.
With that covered, let’s check out the exterior and interior dimensions for the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV and how they compare to the ICE-based Chevy Silverado 1500.
