“Chevrolet has constantly revolutionized the Silverado franchise to make it the powerhouse it is today,” said Steve Hill, vice president of Chevrolet. “The Ultium Platform is a critical enabler of next-level pickup truck performance for both fleet and retail customers, whether they are currently driving a Silverado or are considering a pickup for the first time.”

When the EV launches, it will be available as an RST First Edition and a fleet-oriented WT model. Each configuration will have a suite of standard safety technologies.

The RST First Edition includes: 

  • Four-wheel steering
  • Automatic Adaptive Air Suspension
  • Multi-Flex Midgate that expands the truck’s cargo capability while maintaining seating for a rear row passenger
  • Available Multi-Flex Tailgate with power release
  • Large, 17"-diagonal LCD freeform infotainment screen paired with a neighboring 11"-diagonal reconfigurable driver instrument display and a multi-color driver head-up display with a field of view over 14"
  • Trailering-capable Super Cruise5, the industry’s first true handsfree driver-assistance technology, allowing drivers to travel handsfree on more than 200,000 miles of compatible roads across the U.S. and Canada

The WT model includes: 

  • 510hp and 615 lb-ft of torque
  • 8,000 pounds of towing and 1,200 pounds of payload4
  • After the initial launch, a fleet model with up to 20,000 lbs max trailering with the max tow package4will be introduced 

"GM Fleet has long provided customers with great products and services, an exceptional customer experience, and innovative solutions to meet their unique business needs,” said Ed Peper, vice president of GM Fleet. “We’re excited to launch the Silverado EV, providing customers with a true work-capable truck to help them begin the transition to an electric fleet and assist them in achieving their own sustainability goals.”

Technologies for today and tomorrow 

With the RST model, when a driver approaches the vehicle with an enabled cell phone or key fob, a lighting animation will greet them. Once inside the vehicle, a 3D animation appears on the 17" diagonal LCD infotainment screen, which pairs with the 11" diagonal driver instrument display. Additionally, the driver head-up display offers a field of view over 14". With handsfree start, the vehicle will automatically turn on after the driver enters the vehicle with an enabling device. 

The Silverado EV will also be the first to have Ultifi, a Linux-based software platform that separates the vehicle's software from its hardware to allow for quick and frequent software updates. Developed in-house at GM, the software enables to vehicles to continue evolving over time. 

Production, availability, and reservations 

Assembled with domestically and globally sourced parts, the Silverado EV will be manufactured at GM's Factory ZERO at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center. 

 In spring 2023, the Silverado EV will debut a WT model offering GM’s longest-range battery with an expected GM-estimated range of over 400 miles on a full charge. In fall 2023, a fully loaded RST First Edition model, also delivering a 400-mile range, will debut with an MSRP of $105,000 + DFC. After production ramps up, Chevrolet will unleash the full Silverado EV portfolio, including WT (with a starting at MSRP of $39,900 + DFC), RST, Trail Boss, and more. Customers will have the ability to content the truck across various price ranges, with MSRPs around $50,000, $60,000, $70,000, $80,000, and more, allowing them to choose the truck that meets their capability and pricing needs.
