West Chevrolet | Tennessee Chevy News: 2024 Silverado EV Showcased on Vegas Strip at CES to Boast 400 Mile Range, “Successful Bridge to Exciting new Reality”

So many of our loyal customers here at West Chevy of Knoxville have professed consistent and undying love for the Silverado, as it offers awesome towing capability, cutting-edge technology, and the bow-tie brand’s signature form of the American legacy. The Chevy Silverado EV introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas over the past week sees the resurrection of the patented GM midgate, which is a back-of-cab folding bulkhead that makes the truck’s bed longer.

This newest and modern addition to the truck lineup will boast a unified bed/cab structure and independent rear suspension and will ride on the Ultium platform. GM made the official claim during CES that next spring the Silverado EV will be offered in the Work Truck trim with entry-level pricing of under $40,000, with a $105,000 performance RST to be introduced during summer. The official pledge regarding our aspirational electrification plan is to boast an all-electric lineup by 2035, with at least 40 percent of our models being EVs within the next 3 years.

This model bears the appearance of an aerodynamic version of the Chevy Avalanche pickup, and comes with optional two-motor electric drive, optional 4-wheel drive, 510 hp, 615 lb-ft of torque, and 664 hp on the RST trim. If this model is as power-rich and awesome as it looks, the very useful configurable bed storage and front trunk will render it a very versatile and aggressive competitor to many other electric pickup trucks that are poised to capitalize on the pertinent demands of present times.

The Silverado EVs chassis is built around the capable and strong structure of its battery pack, and its respective body and bed form a solid structure for old-school style truck durability. The front end remains short to offer up the best in visibility and heighten the comfort level for rear-seat passenger legroom. Once inside, the interior of the RST trim offers up a 17-inch LCD infotainment screen, with the driver getting a configurable 11-inch instrument display and a full-color head-up display right on the windshield. There are two electric motors poised one on each axle, and both models will offer 400 miles of range, much more than a week’s stellar productivity and driving range within town for the essentials.

The Wide Open Watts setting will assist with a 0 to 60 mph launch in less than 4.5 seconds and will be able to haul large trailers up to 10,000 pounds while carrying 1,300 pounds in its bed. The WT trim will be equipped with an 8,000-lb towing capacity, and 1,200-pound payload capacity, with GM claiming the soon-to-arrive model will later bump up this towing capacity to an astonishing 20,000 pounds. We’d heartily have to interject here and recommend the RST trim: it will come with a towing compatible version of Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance technology, mapping out the nation’s most traveled roads to allow for hands-free driving and high-tech navigation that allows you to make the most of your journey.
