2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV - the pickup reimagined

13 May 2024, 21:43:41

2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV - the pickup reimaginedChevrolet has announced that the production of the 2024 Silverado EV First Edition RST is now underway, offering increased driving range and payload capacity. The 2024 Silverado EV — the reimagining of the brand’s best-selling nameplate — is packed with the power and capability expected of Chevy Trucks, including: Developed from the ground up as a fully electric truck on GM’s advanced Ultium Platform, the Silverado EV offers a boundary-breaking combination of capability, performance and versatility, along with advanced technologies that can evolve the vehicle over time. The model is available in two configurations, a Chevrolet Silverado EV First Edition RST and a fleet-oriented Chevrolet Silverado EV WT model. Each offers a comprehensive suite of standard and available safety technologies.

A new body architecture, which efficiently leverages the available Ultium battery pack as a part of the fundamental structure, enables the vehicle’s impressive range. This structural design integrates the capability Silverado customers have come to expect from a full-size pickup in terms of strength, durability and performance, while also providing a more comfortable, confident ride both on- and off-road.

Additionally, the chassis is designed with independent front and rear suspensions, with power transferred to the available 24-inch wheels on RST via front- and rear-drive motors that compose the e4WD system. Automatic Adaptive Air Suspension enables the vehicle to be raised or lowered up to 2 inches (50 mm).

Four-Wheel Steer reduces the turning radius at lower speeds for greater maneuverability in parking lots, and enhances handling and stability at higher speeds, particularly when trailering.

The RST and WT models also come with Tow/Haul mode, trailer hitch provisions, and an integrated trailer brake controller and Hitch Guidance. The RST also includes Chevy’s Advanced Trailering System.

The RST and WT feature public DC fast charging capabilities of up to 350kW enabling approximately 100 miles of range to be added in 10 minutes based on GM estimates.

When combined with the available accessory power bar, the Silverado EV’s PowerBase charging system offers up to 10 outlets, to provide a total of 10.2kW of all-electric power for countless worksite or recreational needs, including powering a home, with the required equipment.

The Silverado EV is also capable of charging another EV using the available accessory charge cord, sharing its power in times of need.

Access to fast, convenient charging is essential for lowering the barriers to broader EV adoption, and GM has long championed a collaborative approach. By continuing to work with others in the industry, GM is helping accelerate the installation of accessible public charging throughout North America.

Through the use of the MyChevrolet mobile vehicle app, RST owners have access to over 174,000 public chargers, and growing, throughout the U.S. and Canada.

WT customers can leverage GM Energy and GM Envolve’s solutions, including EV charging infrastructure planning, site operations, energy management and telematics, and other bundled services which help support commercial operations.

The Silverado EV will be offered exclusively in Crew Cab models, with a shorter front overhang that gives the truck a more aggressive stance, more spaciousness and enhances forward downvision. The second row is pushed rearward, meaning passengers over 6 feet tall will be comfortable no matter where they sit. Customizable first row storage on both RST and WT models makes the most of the interior space and provides functional solutions for a variety of customer needs.

The eTrunk – a lockable, weatherproof compartment in the front of the vehicle – provides enough space to fit a large hardside suitcase and a multitude of accessory options for both fleet and retail customers to load gear based on the unique needs of the customer.

The RST’s modular console features a capacity of just over 7 gallons, meaning a lunch cooler can easily fit inside. The RST features a fixed-glass roof, which offers expansive visibility, increased headroom and an enhanced experience for both front and rear passengers.

On the RST, the storage capacity of the 5-foot-11-inch bed is maximized thanks to the innovative available Multi-Flex Midgate, which provides just over 9 feet of storage between the cab and the tailgate when the Midgate is open.

A 40/60 second-row seat offers four configurations that allow users to haul gear or equipment while still accommodating a passenger in the second row. With the addition of the available Multi-Flex Tailgate the Silverado EV RST enables up to 10 feet, 10 inches of load floor and storage capability. An available tonneau cover allows items such as lumber or a kayak to be loaded into a fully lockable, weatherproof storage compartment.

The Silverado EV is assembled with domestically and globally-sourced parts at GM’s Factory ZERO Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center in Michigan — a facility repurposed and retooled with a $2.2-billion investment devoted to EV production.

Soon, Chevrolet will roll out a suite of Silverado EV trims for retail customers, offered with a variety of range options and capabilities.
