2024 Chevy Silverado EV

The rumors are true, assumptions have been confirmed, and what was once thought to be nothing more than a fictional pipe dream has now manifested in reality. Chevrolet, long celebrated for its fleet that symbolizes rugged independence and personal freedom, have applied the modern technology of the EV and adapted it to their beloved Silverado. The result of this iconic meeting is the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV. At last, the bridge between the two worlds has been constructed. In an age where taking better care of the environment is the responsibility of not one but all, so many have decided to do their part to ensure a safer tomorrow. This is an arduous task and one that needs help from everyone, and Chevrolet continues with its efforts to limit the harmful emissions that are caused by excessive use of the internal combustion engine.

While it runs on electricity, the newest Silverado will be forged in the same metal that the blue-collar workers of the country are familiar with. We’re serious when we say that quality was not compromised and performance was not sacrificed to go green. The Silverado EV will still possess the earth-moving horsepower and towing prowess that made it the best pickup truck on the road today.

  • MSRP: $39,900*
  • Range (miles): Est. 400
  • Torque (lb-ft): 615-780
  • Max Towing Capacity (lbs): 10,000

Performance

How Does This All-New Type of Silverado Perform?

Throughout its formative years to the present day, top-tier performance has always been closely associated with Chevrolet. The engines that propelled the Camaro and Corvette down the race track and allowed the Impala to cruise down the streets have been specifically reformulated to bring the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV to its rightful place as one of the gems in Chevy’s ever-growing fleet. Unlike the turbodiesel or small-block motors of both the old and present day, this new Silverado is powered by a 24-module battery pack that’s sure to turn heads and silence even the harshest of critics.

Built from the ground up as an EV and not the chassis of Chevy’s existing fleet, the new battery pack will have an impressive estimated range of up to 400 miles when fully charged. This is an impressively high number given the typical range for an EV falls within the 200-300-mile zone, but the distance for this fully electric pickup is impressive and further proof of GM’s ability to adapt with the times. As they’ve done in the past, Chevy retains its crown as the premier ambassador of speed, and the Silverado possesses the ability to travel from 0 to 60 in an astounding 4.5 seconds. That’s a whole second quicker than the Camaro equipped with a turbocharged 2.0L engine.

The Ultium platform, as the base EV platform for Chevy referred to, will change the way that people comprehend capability and performance from the EV. An available maximum 664 horsepower dwarfs many of the models currently being offered by competitors such as Ford and Dodge. 780 lb-ft of torque accompanies this impressive statistic and will certainly leave many jaws dropping to the floor in both awe and wonder. However, the Silverado's base EVs will still produce 510 horsepower and 615 lb-ft of torque, so they aren't that far off.

When it comes to drivers who haul the heavy loads and have trailering as a favorite pastime, Chevy won’t disappoint. The Silverado EV can have a maximum trailering capacity of 10,000 lbs and a payload limit of 1,300 lbs. While being more environmentally friendly, Chevy has not lost sight of providing performance to the average consumer.

Does the Silverado EV Have the Look

While we expect a vehicle to run great, there is also a lot to be said about how it looks. Despite our best intentions of judging vehicles by their performance and safety features, we can’t resist aesthetics, style, and comfort. Luckily for that aspect of our vehicular needs, Chevy once again delivers a vehicle that has all of the capability and versatility we need, with the type of style that’s aesthetically pleasing to both the eye and the senses. As an aficionado of all things good-looking, you might be wondering just what a vehicle from the not too distant future might look like. Much to the surprised eyes of many, the look of the new Silverado is more akin to a past marvel and not a future one.

While everything on the Silverado EV is indeed new, its shapely features are very reminiscent of the Chevy Avalanche, which was manufactured from 2001 until its discontinuation in 2013. For Chevy devotees who are fond of some of the older designs that the manufacturer is known for, this will certainly pique your interest. The choice of design is quite fitting, as this is the same Chevy that we’re all familiar with, but a fantastic new exterior style has been introduced that many people are going to be thrilled to be driving.

Nostalgia for the past aside, the newest Silverado to roll off of the assembly line possesses a redesigned front end that adheres to the principles of aerodynamics. Cutting down on both turbulence and drag ensures that consumers have a drive that utilizes the momentum of the vehicle for quick acceleration. Unlike the Avalanche of days gone by, Chevy has equipped the Silverado with a Multi-Flex Tailgate, which will serve as the ideal accessory for the 5”11 pickup bed. For those days that require you to maximize your storage space, a quick adjustment to the rear seat using the Multi-Flex Midgate with Pass-Through and the Multi-Flex Tailgate provides up to 10 feet of storage. You'll never have to worry about fitting sheets of plywood into the back of your truck again.

The icing on the cake, as it were, are the 24-inch wheels that the Silverado sits upon–larger than many of the competitors. An adaptable air suspension also affords drivers the luxury of having some extra ground clearance for when the journey has obstructions.

Is the Inside as Technologically Advanced as the Powertrain?

For those who are already blown away by the prospect of owning a pickup that’s ecologically friendly and performance-oriented, strap yourselves in. We’re about to take things further as we play detective and place our magnifying glass on the other technological achievements that Chevy’s newest creation affords. The vehicle of the future shouldn’t be stuck in the present, and the Silverado EV definitely isn't.

Aside from introducing a new suspension for their newest offering, Chevy is also giving its drivers more control of their truck than ever before. Four-wheel turning will give the Silverado maneuverability that surpasses most compact cars. This is also good news for first-time truck drivers who might not be accustomed to the style of driving that pickups require. Control over the complex systems that will accompany the Silverado can be manned from the infotainment center, which has a 17-inch screen.

While the newest EV to Chevy’s fleet runs off battery-generated electricity, many will be impressed with the fact that it generates it as well. Not only will that make work and recreation easier and convenient, but its Powerbase charging system can also power a house for a short time in the case of a blackout. Whatever tasks need to be accomplished with electricity just got a bit closer with its offering of 10.2 kW of energy.

Also included will be Chevy’s newest version of Super Cruise, a state-of-the-art hands-free driving assistance program. With over 200,000 miles of pre-programmed roads, this is cruise control that quite literally “knows the road ahead.” One of the biggest achievements provided to the Silverado is what’s called Ultifi. This Linux-based platform is cutting edge technology that can separate the Silverado’s hardware from the software, which will enable your vehicle to receive over-the-air software updates, and drivers will witness as their vehicle adapts and evolves over time.
