DETROIT - Chevrolet has announced that 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:

  • EPA-estimated 450-mile range on a full charge on 4WT
  • GM-estimated 440-mile range1 on a full charge on RST
  • Up to 754 horsepower with more than 785 lb-ft of torque in available max power Wide Open Watts Mode on First Edition RST, enabling a GM-estimated 0-60 mph time of less than 4.5 seconds2
  • Standard DC fast charging (up to 350kW)3 on WT and RST
  • Up to 10.2kW of offboard power on WT and RST with optional equipment
  • Up to 10,000 pounds of maximum trailering with up to 1,500 pounds of payload on RST4

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.

"Chevrolet has been building trucks for nearly 100 years and understands what customers want and need in a pickup," said Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet. "Chevy's truck leadership combined with our expertise in vehicle electrification has given us an advantage to deliver a revolutionary product. The Silverado EV RST has all the performance and capability of a traditional truck, plus all the benefits of electrification. It is an impressive and important addition to the Chevy truck franchise."

The Silverado EV is available in two configurations, a First Edition RST and a fleet-oriented WT model. Each offers a comprehensive suite of standard and available safety technologies.

The fully loaded First Edition RST includes:

  • Four-Wheel Steer
  • Automatic Adaptive Air Suspension
  • Multi-Flex Midgate that expands the truck's cargo capability while maintaining seating for rear-row passengers
  • Available Multi-Flex Tailgate with power release
  • Large, 17-inch-diagonal LCD freeform infotainment screen paired with a neighboring 11-inch-diagonal reconfigurable driver instrument display and a multi-color driver head-up display with a field of view of over 14 inches
  • Trailering-capable Super Cruise5, the industry's first true hands-free driver-assistance technology, allowing drivers to travel hands-free on more than 400,000 miles of compatible roads across the U.S. and Canada

The WT launched last year for fleet customers and offers impressive capability to meet the needs of organizations with sustainable transportation goals, including 510 hp and 615 lb-ft of torque. The 4WT will offer 10,000 pounds of towing and 1,500 pounds of payload4.

"Our design and engineering teams started from the ground up to create a pickup with impressive performance and capability," said Kathy Gillespie, Silverado EV chief engineer. "The Silverado EV RST is a long-range, fast charging electric truck that does all the 'truck things' customers want and more. It can tow, haul and carry passengers comfortably. With 754 horsepower, it also happens to be the most powerful Silverado we've ever built."

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.

Phenomenal performance
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.

Designed for performance and functionality
Inside and out, the Silverado EV RST and WT are thoughtfully designed for functional flexibility.

"We had no constraints when it came to designing the Silverado EV with dramatic style and flexible utility because we didn't need to work around a traditional propulsion system," said Phil Zak, executive director of Chevrolet Design. "The Ultium Platform allowed us to redefine what it means to offer expansive new storage and utility possibilities."

Exterior proportions and surfacing convey the truck's capability and athletic performance. The front-end design has been sculpted to efficiently direct air down the body side, significantly reducing drag and turbulence. As a result, the Silverado EV WT is estimated to have one of the lowest drag coefficients of any available production full-size pickup truck, which helps enable the impressive range.

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.

Technologies for today and tomorrow
The Silverado EV is packed with the latest technology, including an advanced software system that enables vehicle technologies to evolve over time.

As a driver approaches the RST with an enabled cell phone or key fob, a distinctive lighting animation greets them.

Upon entering the vehicle, a bold 3D animation appears on the RST's large 17-inch- diagonal LCD freeform infotainment screen, which is paired with a neighboring 11-inch-diagonal driver instrument display. Together with a driver head-up display with a field of view over 14 inches, a driver can't ask for more information at their disposal. With new, hands-free start, the vehicle turns on automatically after the driver enters with an enabled device, leaving hands free to buckle up and get on the road.

Production and availability
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.

The 2024 Silverado EV is available in multiple specs:

  • 4WT with 450-mile range on a full charge
  • 3WT with 393-mile range1 on a full charge
  • RST First Edition with GM-estimated 440-mile range and MSRP6 of $94,500 + DFC
